About the Boarding and Skiing in Les Arcs
Skiing in Les Arcs has taken on a new dimension with the two areas of Les Arcs and La Plagne becoming accessible on the Paradiski lift pass. The ski resort of Les Arcs offers excellent skiing and boarding for every level and the superb lift system makes getting back to base very easy from any point.
The Glacier du Varet guarantees good snow all season and offers one of the longest runs in the world: the 7km descent from Aiguille Rouge to Villaroger. Beginners benefit from the abundant blue runs while intermediates can enjoy the high altitude bowls and tree-lined runs to Peisey Nancroix. Advanced skiers should try the challenge of the Deux Tétes but it's fair to say the resort doesn't have the most challenging terrain and whilst it will entertain advanced skiers who are part of a mixed group it is worth looking at Espace Killy or other resorts if your only looking for the more challenging stuff.
