Les Arcs Resort Info
Les Arcs skiing
Lift linked with La Plagne to create the "paradiski" area, Les Arcs offers something for everyone and plenty of it. Beginners and intermediates can revel in the fact that over 50% of pistes are graded red and blue, whilst advanced skiers can get their teeth into challenging blacks and off piste. Boarders and freestyle skiers won't be left out either with an enviable snow park, half pipe and boarder cross. The Les Arcs lift system is also one of the best, with few queues except at rush hour.
Les Arcs ski resort
Les Arcs is made up of three modern 'villages', with Arc 1800 being the biggest and most popular. Whilst off-snow activities are somewhat lacking in Les Arcs, families will love the traffic-free streets and excellent children's facilities. Arc 1950 is a new village created by the North American developer Intrawest. Located just below the Aiguille Rouge with spectacular views of Mont Blanc, Arc 1950 is fully self-contained, with its own shops, restaurants, bars, ski school, equipment shops, thermal spa, swimming pools and underground parking.

European Weather Outlook
The snow is set to return to Europe just in time for Christmas with consistent snowfall predicted across the Alps next week. France is expecting moderate snowfall before the weekend and Isola 2000 could enjoy up to 80cm before this time next week. Alpe d’Huez and Les Deuz Alpes are also expecting a much-needed half metre of fresh snow next week.
Zermatt and Saas Fee in Switzerland should benefit from almost a metre of fresh snow over the next nine days while Austrian resorts are also looking forward to moderate snowfall but could have to wait until the end of next week. Elsewhere, Norway, Spain and Scotland are all predicting scattered snowfall.
