Les Arcs for beginner ski holidays

Les Arcs for beginner ski holidays Thanks to the celebrity endorsement of such royals as Princess Eugenie and Prince William and Kate Middleton, skiing has never been more fashionable. And for those who are new to the winter sport, there are numerous ski resorts suitable for beginners situated across Europe.

In France, why not opt for ski holidays in Les Arcs, which the Ski Club of Great Britain notes is recommended for beginners and skiers of all standards.

The resort offers mountain restaurant and toilet facilities and is also suitable for families. Its purpose built nature - with accommodation built so close to the lifts and slopes that it is possible to ski straight to your door at the end of the day - means that this resort could offer a comfortable introduction to the world of pistes and parallel turns.

Ski holidays in Les Arcs are also great for beginners who want to guaranteed snow as it is famed for its good snow cover.

Les Arcs was developed during the 1960s and is comprised of three villages at 1600 metres, 1800 metres, 2000 metres and 1950 metres. Arc 1950 is "the focal point of the whole resort - with a true village ambience", the Ski Club claims.

The ski area is also linked to La Plagne by the Vanoise Express Cable car for those who wish to extend their skiing into other regions.
