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!

snowshoeing - sainte foy (alps)

Explore Sainte Foy from a different perspective and enjoy the traditional sport of snowshoeing. Snowshoes look like tennis rackets, and work by distributing your weight over a greater area, meaning you won't sink into the snow.

Once you have got used to walking in your snowshoes, you can explore the many trails which wind through pine and spruce forests. You will come across some truly fabulous views, from frozen waterfalls, to traditional French villages and you should come across a wide range of wildlife too!


sledging - sainte foy (alps)

Even when the lifts close, there's still plenty of snowy fun to be had in Sainte Foy! Thanks to the great floodlights here, you can enjoy a sledging session in the evening - a great way to end a day on the slopes!
