Arc 1800 (Les Arcs) Information

Les Arcs can be found in the Savoie region of France, in the Northern French Alps, on the edge of the Vanoise National Park. It forms part of the massive Paradiski ski area which as well as Les Arcs includes La Plagne. La Plagne and its ski areas can be accessed via the Vanoise Express cable car which whisks skiers across the valley in 4 minutes. The double decker cable car has, in addition to the 360° panorama, a 3 dimensional outlook courtesy of a transparent glass panel inserted into the floor of the lower level of the 2 cabins.

Les Arcs ski area is made up of 4 ski resorts: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000 - each a modern, purpose-built resort, developed with superb winter skiing and enjoyment in mind. The older and smaller ski village of Peisey-Vallandry sits lower in the valley of Les Arcs ski resort and offers a more traditional feel, whilst the recently built award winning Arc 1950 has become a well-known village-style ski resort offering the charm of a traditional village with all the creature comforts and conveniences of a modern ski resort.

Each Les Arcs ski resort offers a different flavour, from functional to charming, but all providing superb winter skiing with ski-in ski-out facilities within the Paradiski ski area. Spoilt with both skiing and snowboarding options, the Tarentaise Valley now stretches as far as La Plagne and the whole ski area offers splendid views of the Mont Blanc mountain range.

Arc 1800 was established in 1975, has a west-facing mountainside and is the largest, most developed and liveliest village of Les Arcs ski area. It is made up of four different pedestrianised areas called Charmettoger, Le Charvet, Les Villards and Le Chantel - Les Villards being the centre of the resort where the main amenities and services are located. 

Les Arcs as a whole has been awarded the ‘P'tits Montagnards’ label which guarantees high quality facilities for children and their parents on holiday in the mountains. So if you like being at the heart of the action, then Arc 1800 is definitely for you!

For your comfort and convenience, a free resort shuttle bus runs throughout the day from 07.30 - 21.00 between Arc 1800 and Arc 1600 where you can take another bus to Arc 1950 and Arc 2000. Also, a new gondola, 'Le Dahu', operates between the main resort and the Le Chantel area between 07.30 - 23.00. There is also a shuttle bus for this route between 07.30 - 23.00.
