Ski Holidays, Les Arcs, France
The Les Arcs ski area has something for everyone, steep runs for the advanced skiers and plenty too for intermediates on wide reds and blues plus some wooded runs which are ideal if the weather closes in. If you are a keen to push your skis, the linked ski area to la Plagne is a must which doubles the size of the ski area to 425km. Strangely Les Arcs does not mark any of its runs as easy greens, as they don’t use this classification, which we know has put off some beginners considering a Les Arcs Ski Holiday.

The popular village of Arcs 1950 which was finished in 2003 is ideal for skiers who prefer a self-catered apartment, here they are stylish and bigger than many traditional French apartments.
