Resort Information

For a real French skiing experience, take your students on a school ski trip to Les Arcs! One of the original French ‘mega-resorts’, Les Arcs is one of the world’s largest and most varied, with glacier skiing, wooded slopes and above tree-line bowls. Made up of four main resorts, this is a ski area that offers outstanding facilities, with an emphasis on convenience that makes travelling here with a school group a much more attractive option. Part of the huge Paradiski region, Les Arcs offers scenic doorstep skiing suitable for all abilities.

Skiing Information

There are some excellent beginner zones here, which lead on to long, wide blue runs, offering great progression for learners and making this ideal for a school ski holiday. There is also a number of challenging black runs. Les Arcs is known for its spectacular verticals and these are, perhaps, best enjoyed by intermediates who have a brilliant choice of runs. The Apocalypse terrain park is excellent for snowboarders. One of the best terrain parks in the Alps, there are also a couple of boardercross runs here too. Plus, jump on the Vanoise Express cable car and you’ll arrive in La Plagne less than five minutes later, opening up a total of 425km of skiable piste!
