Christmas in Arc 1950

Christmas in Arc 1950 After last weekend’s first significant snow fall of the season, Les Arcs was turned back into a wintry landscape and is looking towards the resort’s opening and the start of ski season.

Les Arcs is found in the Savoie area of the French Alps, this huge ski area made up of 200km of piste and consists of 4 villages at different altitudes Arc 2000, Arc 1950, Arc 1800 and Arc 1600.

Arc 1950 is Europe’s newest ski resort, built just 12 years ago at 1950m in Les Arcs. Their planned opening date is Saturday 12th December 2015, then from 19th – 26th December Christmas festivities will take over the village, with Santa descending by zip wire, laden with children’s gifts, fireworks will light up the sky and the village will sparkle with Christmas lights.

Every week throughout the season, including this special Christmas week, Arc 1950 offers a ‘theme’ to its weekly programme of activities, such as, Russian fashion week in January, Carnival and Kids week in February and Olympic and St Patricks’ week in March.

Nathalie Guidon, General Manager at Arc 1950 comments, “We are excited to now have our resort covered in snow. With our village at 1950m, we can guarantee ski in-and-out for our guests who come to us for their skiing holiday. You can ski to your door, you can ski to the shops, in fact the resort is designed so you can ski right through our little village to everything you need!

In addition to these themed weeks, during each week itself, on top of being able to ski in the second biggest ski area in the world, the Paradiski region, Arc 1950 offers a full village programme, including freestyle nights on Tuesdays, sledging on lit pistes on Wednesday evenings and night skiing on Thursday and Friday evenings.
