Skiing Les Arcs.
Beginners Skiing Les Arcs.
For beginners, the comfy chair-lifts and easy nursery slopes found each of the three main Arcs and above Peisey-Vallandry, will be of more relevance than access to the wider ski area.
Valle de l’Arc.
This long, meandering run from the summit of Col de la Chal down to the Arcs 1950/Arcs 2000 base area might only be a blue but it is great fun for confident skiers of any standard.
Peisey and Vallandry tree runs.
One of the real strengths of Les Arcs is the great tree coverage, especially lower down towards Plan Peisey and Vallandry. Chairs 61, 68 and 74 all have easy-to-navigate tree runs even when the light is bad. Intermediates and experts will love them.
This is the place for the most serious off-piste routes in the resort, especially the backcountry itineraries down to Villaroger. A guide and full avalanche equipment are necessary.
If the steeps of Aiguille Rouge are too terrifying, Chair 69 is a nice, gentle introduction to off-piste in Les Arcs. It is popular with the locals and you can pick your route down as you take the lift up.
Piste du Grand Col.
The Grand Col lift goes up to 2,832m, and the two runs underneath it often end up bumpy and full of moguls heaven for hillock-loving experts.
