Review 28/09/2009
Les Arcs has a huge variety of pistes and some fabulous long leg-burning runs such as the Aiguille Rouge (3226m) down to Villandry, a vertical drop of 2000m. And in Arc 1800 there are some great restaurants and bars. Easy to get to, travel to Bourg-St-Maurice and then straight up the mountain by cablecar, or by flying to Grenoble/Lyon airports. Best value by far is self-catering as the euro exchange is not great. Ensure you get a ski-in-out apartment near the Transarc lift which accesses all the ski pistes, eg the Mirantin, Archeboc, Aiguille Grive Apartments. Also the Sherpa or Spar supermarkets in Arc 1800 have good food and wine and even rotisserie roasted chickens, pork hocks, etc. The ski passes are not cheap, but you can economise with a half-day 12.30pm+ afternoon pass or a 4-hour daily pass. 'Popcorn' are a good value ski hire shop. For a laid-back cosy evening try the Golf Hotel bar with its huge log fireplace and free live jazz music. Arc 1800 is the best of all the villages I think, though Arc 1950 has some good if expensive restaurants. Les Arcs has the largest 'Paradiski' piste area in all of Europe with over 400km of pistes so it’s fantastic for intermediate skiers and snowboarders ... definitely worth a visit!

Review 25/07/2009
Been skiing the Tarentaise valley for years and Arc 1800 is just great - superb piste for all abilities and fantastic for intermediates/experts as its got a massive choice of runs including awesome leg-burners from the Aiguille Rouge (3226m) down to Villaroger (1200m) plus great bars and restaurants in Arc 1800 to unwind at the end of the day. Really great snow and fun! You won't be disappointed!

Review 06/06/2009
Great skiing for intermediates here, especially from Arc1800 which has the fab Transarc lift over to Arc1950/2000 and the Aiguille Rouge peak at 3226m - try the 'nosebleed' run down through the trees to Villaroger - a vertical drop of 2000 metres. There is great fun in the bars and restaurants in Arc1800, which is livelier than the others. And easy access direct to Bourg-St-Maurice train station via the funicular cable car from Arc1600. Self catering apartments are good value as the sterling exchange rate is not that good right now! Good thing Arc1800 has some good supermarkets, Sherpa and Spar. The architecture is bit boring '80s French modernism but it’s a great place to ski and that's what matters! People very friendly and laid back. A much recommended resort.

Review 04/05/2009
If you're not too bothered by the modern French 80's architecture but value ski-in-out apartment convenience, plus access to the biggest and most varied ski terrains in the Alps, then Les Arcs must be a serious consideration. The largest and busiest village is Arc1800 with a choice of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema, etc - and the major benefit of the Transarc cable car allowing you access all the way up to the Aiguille Rouge peak at 3226m. Getting down is a fab 2000m drop to Villaroger, or Arc1600/Arc1800 if you prefer ... a real leg burner ... But I love the mountain cafes on the way, for dropping in for a coffee and crepe, like the L'Arpette - great place and friendly staff, with a sun terrace and loungers for chilling out in. Getting to Les Arcs' four ski villages is dead easy, the easiest being the train to Bourg-St-Maurice and then up the funicular cable car at the end of the platform. So what are you waiting for?!

Review 27/04/2008
Les Arcs resort was brilliant. There are lots of various runs which connected together well and it will be even better once the vanoise express cable car is connected in Dec 08. Would prefer self catering next time.
