Cheap ski hire Arc 1800
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.
Arc 1800, just a couple of kilometres from Arc 1600, is the biggest of the Les Arcs resorts, and getting bigger with expansion up the hillside. Arc 1800 has a lot to offer, not least the breathtaking views across the Alps and the peak of Mont Blanc, which creates a beautiful backdrop for all the opportunities of Les Arcs. Enjoy snowshoeing, dog sledding, ski-joëring, or take a break from the snow with a bowling alley, cinema, and the best selection of shops on the mountain. When the evening draws in you’ll find yourself in the nightlife centre of Les Arcs with some of the best bars and clubs on the Alps; try Chez Bou Bous for a place that’s friendly and always busy, or perhaps Apokalypse, the biggest club in the resort complex, staying open until the early hours. For food you’re also spoiled for choice, with over 50 restaurants operating here. Mamie Crêpe is easily the best established eatery in Arc 1800, and is a local favourite. All in all, Arc 1800 is the place to go if your desire for activity goes beyond the slopes.
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, long, 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.
