Club Med Arcs Extreme Reviews
The hotel is very basic and a little run down, but the staff are very helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. and the overall ambience is carried mainly by that. Food is not as good as in many other Club Meds I've been to though plenty as always. If you don't mind using the same towels/bedding all week because spending time on the slopes or with your friends/family is the most important thing then this is a good place for intermediate skiers. Skiing was good, with a large selection of easy off-piste, despite the rather unfortunate snow conditions this year. If you are looking for a cheap-ish and limited but enjoyable set-up Arc 2000 is a great deal and with more snow the skiing will be even better.
Apres Ski: 4/5
Club Med Arcs Extreme straddles the main road into Arc 2000. Centrally located & within easy reach to a number of lifts. The regular bus that serves 1800-1600 & the funicular to Bourg St Maurice is only a few minutes walk away. (The swimming pool in Bourg is free with a 6 day lift pass). The Club Med building has a large bar area with great views of the surrounding mountains. There is a band playing live music from 7pm each evening, behind the bar is the very comfy theatre area where the evening shows can be seen. The ski/boot room is located at the basement of the hotel. There are plenty of runs for skiers & boarders of all ability, plus off the top of the Aiguille Rouge lift at 3226 metres there are plenty of off piste opportunities. There is a boarder cross circuit worth a try a ski run that goes through water & a long luge run restricted to 12yrs and older.This does not include the opportunities to be found in the neighbouring resort of La Plagne via the Vanoise express (lift pass to cover La Plagne is an extra supplement). So if your looking for a great skiing experience why not give Club Med Extreme a visit soon.
