Les Arcs Ski Resort

Located in the Tarentaise Valley Les Arcs and La Plagne are two excellent resorts combined to create the Paradiski area. Les Arcs ski resort consists of 4 purpose built villages, 1600, 1800, 1950 and 2000. Everyone from beginners to free-riders sing the praises of Les Arcs skiing and the quality of the pistes, snow and lift system are hard to beat.  Positioned in the centre of a huge bowl, La Plagne ski area is contained to the east, south and west by towering mountains which help to preserve the snow and act as a perfect suntrap. Skiing La Plagne is a mecca of cruisy blues, great for families or beginner ski holidays. However, any advanced skier should be aware that the resort also boasts some seriously undervalued off-piste terrain, including the famous North Face du Bellecote.

We stayed in belle plagne. We spent a week here driving up from Grenoble. With the link to Les Arcs there are more than enough slopes to keep you busy the whole week. The queues in Jan were mostly ok. The resort is quite spread out so you can use up a lot of time commuting from one end to the next. This is a great resort if you like exploring. There's some awesome cafés. A tunnel to ski through which the kids loved. They had some lovely ESF teachers. La plagne doesn't have too many trees high up but some of the lower runs, especially those on the way to Les Arc had lots of trees. In summary I'd say this area is like a lot of little towns linked by ski runs. Fun to explore.
