Les Arcs 1600 Ski Resort

With excellent customer service and a friendly atmosphere, it’s no surprise that this resort sees people return every winter. What’s more, the fact it is fully pedestrianised makes it very easy to get around.

Linked by high speed funicular in just 7 minutes to the Eurostar station and mountain town of Bourg St Maurice, it is also connected to the other villages by regular free shuttle buses and ski lifts. The villages of Montrigron and Les Granges can also be accessed through the mountain railway track.

This compact, small resort, set in the trees, makes an ideal choice for families of mixed ability and young children. Arc 1600 is also known as Arc Pierre Blanche, named after the mountain guide and active founder of Les Arcs.
