Cheap ski hire Arc 1600
Les Arcs consists of several villages, all located at different levels of altitude. Starting down the mountain, the valley town of Bourg Saint Maurice is linked to the mountain and other towns of Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000 via a quick funicular ride. This is where you can expect to arrive if you choose to make your way to Les Arcs by the super convenient Eurostar service from London. On either side of the valley the villages of Vallandry and Villaroger along with some smaller hamlets, make up Les Arcs. The villages differ greatly in architecture, atmosphere, and price tag, so finding one to suit your taste and budget shouldn’t be a problem. Each resort has its own individual feel, is well serviced and, most importantly, gives easy access to the incredible terrain on offer at Les Arcs.
Arcs 1600 sits roughly at the treeline on a broad, steep mountainside overlooking the town of Bourg-St-Maurice, with stunning views across to Mont Blanc. Arc 1600 was the first of the Les Arcs towns to be established, but throughout the rapid expansion of Les Arcs it has retained its character as a peaceful family resort. The uncrowded centre and convenience here makes it a choice setting for families wanting to explore the Alps, and as such the après ski is slightly muted. Spots like Café Sol can provide you with live music and a pleasant atmosphere, but for the real focus of apres ski in Les Arcs, you’re only about 2km away from the buzzing nightlife of Arc 1800. For food we recommend Chalet de L'Arcelle for a cosy Alpine dining experience, or The Cairn if you’re tempted by the Italian and Savoyard specialities there.
With Les Arcs alone reaching 200km of pistes, the total skiing area of the Paradiski area is more like 425km, and the two resort complexes are joined together by the biggest, longest, and fastest cable car in the world. The slopes vary greatly, both on and off-piste. For amateurs, the smaller slopes are linked by the quick, comfy chairlifts that have been recently brought into service at Les Arcs, and the views across Mont Blanc and the Nancroix Valley make learning at Les Arcs an absolute pleasure. Experts and adventurous intermediates will find endless joys here, not least taking advantage of the opportunity to cover some serious ground. The snowboarding here is excellent and the terrain park is one of the best, meanwhile the 10 ungroomed pistes will definitely appeal to freestyle skiers. It’s no wonder that Les Arcs has been award of the status of Top of the French Alps, a prestigious award celebrating the resorts that represent the best of French skiing.
