Les Arcs resort guide

Les Arcs is made up of five main areas situated at different altitudes, Bourg Saint Maurice is the main town at the foot of the ski area from here you can use the Funicular to access Arc 1600.

Arc 1600 enjoys good access to the slopes and has many self catered options nestled in the tree line.

Arc 1800 is slightly bigger with more après ski and a good shopping area.

Arc 1950 is the newest and has a self contained feel with many fine restaurants and bars.

Finally is Arc 2000, actually situated at 2100 metres at the top of the mountain with amazing access to the top slopes and snow sure skiing of the highest quality.

With a high percentage of runs being situated above 2000 metres and the highest point being the Aiguille Rouge with an elevation of 3,227 metres above sea level snow sure skiing is sure to be on the cards. Get to the top of the Aiguille Rouge on a clear day and you can see the top of Mont Blanc.
