Les Arcs 2000 Reviews
Our trip to Les Arcs 2000 during the Christmas week of 2007 was the best skiing week I have had over the last 13 years. The snow conditions were great with well groomed pistes, most of which are very flattering runs. The only day that it was overcast was Boxing Day, for this we decided to use the many runs through the trees at lower altitude and get the benifit of the better snow contrast. Although we found the bars rather noisy, we are not of the youth set any longer. But for the younger skiier the resort seems to be lively enough. All in all a great week was had by all. If there is good snow and the sun shines, this resort is hard to beat. During our week the slopes were deserted which was a joy in itself. The ski hire shops are knowlegeable as well as helpful, a great help with buying new skis. On top of that they gave the skis a very thick coating of wax at the end of the week, and offered to do the same again if and when we came back. I must add that this was a free service. 10 out of 10. I would say "if there is a heaven then this resort must be it".
Apres Ski: 5/5
The snow sure place to be in the Paradiski area is Arc 2000. With easy access to the Aiguille Rouge at 3226m & it's great run into Villaroger at 1200m. Plus the option to do loads of off piste off the back (guide needed) Arc 2000 will cater for all abilities. If you fancy something different there is the water slide run next to the snow park & the boarder cross circuit by the Plagnettes lift. There are some really nice long Blues like Vallee De Arc to get your confidence up before taking on something more challenging. The bowling alley is worth a visit for an evening activity. Night life is limited but if it is skiing you are there for you will not be disappointed. You will get some great views from the Aiguille Rouge it is worth taking a short walk up to the view point to see some of the surrounding ski resorts.
