Arc 2000 (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 2000 is a great family ski destination due to Les Arcs as a whole has being awarded the ‘P'tits Montagnards’ label. This label guarantees high quality facilities for children and their parents on holiday in the mountains.
The original purpose-built architecture has enjoyed many improvements and is now counter-balanced by a more cosy extension made up of wood and stone chalets. Although Arc 2000 is more about the skiing than the après-ski, it now has at its centre a welcoming piazza or "place centrale" which takes on a Mediterranean feel during the warmer spring months with "al fresco" dining or drinking at the restaurants and bars. For those looking to explore nearby on foot, Arc 2000 is linked to the neighbouring resort of Arc 1950 by a gondola, which runs until 21:00.
Arc 2000 is renowned for hosting the annual Speed Skiing World Championships - a high-speed ski race that demands nerves of steel.
For your comfort and convenience, a free resort shuttle bus runs throughout the day from 07:01 – 20:51 between Arc 2000 and Arc 1600 and it is just a short gondola ride (Cabriolet) from Arc 2000 to Arc 1950.
