Snowbeds says

 

Very large ski area with big vertical drop gives loads and loads of variety.

There is also a big variety of accommodation centres from purpose built up high, to villages lower down.

Les Arcs is made up of four modern resort units, all purpose-built, traffic-free and apartment-dominated.


Arcs 1600 and 1800 stand a couple of km apart, roughly at the treeline on a broad, steepish mountainside overlooking the town of Bourg-St-Maurice.

Both consist mainly of large apartment blocks sitting below their slopes, with some development beside the slopes. 


Arc 2000 and 1950 are  separate – on the far side of the mountain ridge, at the bottom of a high, treeless bowl. Arc 2000 consists of half a dozen huge, linked apartment blocks, plus more recently built chalet-style blocks.

Arc 1950 was built from scratch by IntraWest (of Whistler fame) in traditional style.

Most of the accommodation is conveniently located,beware some of it is pretty basic but if you are looking for value than there are some great prices to be has especially in Arc 1600.

Great ski area for mixed abilities,good beginners slopes,with lots of wide intermediate slopes,and plenty for the high mileage experts to go at.

Where is it?
 
Apres ski
 
Family based restaurants and bars in each centre.
 
Arcs 1800 is definitely the liveliest village in Les Arcs.
 
Try the Red Bar for live music.
 
In Arc 1950 La Belle Pinte is a large Irish pub and Club 1950 goes to the wee small hours.
 
There are nightclubs in Arc 1800, 2000 and 1950 all of which are open until 4am. The Apokalypse club in 1800 is probably the most popular and KL92 in 2000 is also a good choice.
 
What others say
 
From The Telegraph
"We’ve always liked Les Arcs’ slopes: they offer long descents, plenty of steep stuff, plenty to keep intermediates happy plus woods to head to in a storm. And for those who really like to travel on skis, the link to La Plagne takes the amount of skiing into the Trois Vallées league."
