Arc 1800 (Les Arcs) Informatie
Les Arcs ligt in de Savoie regio, in de noordelijke Franse Alpen, op de rand van het Vanoise Nationale Park. Les Arcs bergdorpen zijn autovrij. Het maakt deel uit van het enorme Paradiski skigebied die zowel Les Arcs als La Plagne als skigebied heeft. La Plagne en zijn skigebieden kunnen bereikt worden via de Vanoise Express kabelbaan die skiers over de vallei meeneemt in 4 minuten. De dubbeldekker kabelbaan heeft, naast het 360° panorama, een 3 dimensionaal uitzicht, dankzij een transparante glazen venster op de grond van het lagere niveau van de 2 kabines.
Les Arcs ski gebied bestaat uit 4 ski oorden: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 en Arc 2000 - elk een modern, gebouwd voor het skien oord, ontwikkeld met super winter ski en plezier in gedachte. Het oudere en kleine ski dorp van Peisey-Vallandry ligt lager in de vallei van Les Arcs ski oord en biedt een meer traditioneel gevoel, terwijl het recent gebouwde, award winnende Arc 1950, een goedbekend dorpachtig skioord is geworden, die charme van een traditioneel dorp beidt, met alle voorzieningen en gemakken van een modern skioord.
Elk Les Arcs skioord biedt een andere sfeer, van functioneel tot charmant, maar allemaal met super winter ski met ski-in ski-uit faciliteiten binnen het Paradiski skigebied. Verwend met ski- en snowboard opties, strekt de Tarentaise Vallei zich nu helemaal uit tot La Plagne en het hele skigebied biedt geweldige uitzichten over de Mont Blanc bergtoppen.
Arc 1800 - opgericht in 1975, heeft een westelijke bergkant op de boomgrens en is het grootste, meest ontwikkelde en levendigste dorp van het Les Arcs skigebied. Het bestaat uit vier verschillende voetgangers gebieden: Charmettoger, Le Charvet, Les Villards en Le Chantel met Les Villards in het centrum van het oord waar de hoofdzakelijke faciliteiten en diensten zijn.
Les Arcs als geheel heeft het label ‘P'tits Montagnards’ gekregen, wat hoge kwaliteit faciliteiten voor kinderen en hun ouders op vakantie in de bergen garandeert. Dus als je het leuk vindt om in het hart van de actie te zijn, dan is Arc 1800 zeker voor jou!
Voor jouw comfort en gemak, gaat er een gratis shuttlebus gedurende de dag van 07.30 - 21.00 tussen Arc 1800 en Arc 1600, waar je een andere bus kunt nemen naar Arc 1950 en Arc 2000. Er is ook een nieuwe gondellift, 'Le Dahu', die tussen het hoofdzakelijke oord van 1800 en het "Le Chantel" gebied gaat, tussen 07.30 en 23.00. Er is ook een shuttlebus voor deze route tussen 07.30 en 23.00.
Ski Collection biedt een reeks van Arc 1800 accommodatie opties van waar-voor-je-geld 3-Ster Superieur tot modern 4-Ster, met self-catering ski appartementen voor 12 pers. Sommige van onze ski residenties hebben zwembaden en spa's inclusief Jacuzzi, sauna, stoom-, fitness en uitrust ruimtes.
LES ARCS SKIGEBIED
Les Arcs maakt deel uit van het grote ‘Paradiski’ skigebied en is het op 1-na-grootste verbonden skigebied in de wereld. Paradiski heeft uitstekende faciliteiten en met zijn enorme variatie in hoogte (1200m-3250m) en met meer dan 70% van het gebied boven 2000m, is er een grote varieteit aan verschillende typen landschap en pistes om te ontdekken. Dit indrukwekkende skigebied die door liften verbonden is, bestaat uit 18 ski oorden (de eerste 7 onderin in Les Arcs en de andere 11 in La Plagne):
- Arc 1600
- Arc 1800
- Arc 1950
- Arc 2000
- Peisey Vallandry
- Bourg St Maurice
- Plagne Montalbert
- Plagne Bellecote
- Les Coches
- Champagny en Vanoise
- Belle Plagne
- Plagne 1800
- Plagne Soleil
- Aime la Plagne
- Plagne Centre
- Plagne Villages
Les Arcs biedt een paar moeilijke afdalingen voor expert-skiers onder de Aiguille Rouge. Voor gemiddelde skiers is er een grote concentratie aan blauwe en rode pistes boven Arc 1800 en die gaan allemaal naar beneden in de dorpen van Peisey-Vallandry. Er zijn oefenweides dichtbij alle dorpen van Les Arcs, maar de beste groene pistes liggen in La Plagne. La Plagne heeft een verdere 225km aan pistes - toegang via de Vanoise Express dubbel-dekker kabelbaan (grootste kabelbaan in de wereld), die in Peisey-Vallandry ligt. Deze neemt u over de vallei heen naar Montchavin (La Plagne).
Arc 1800 ligt rond de bomengrens, aan de voet van de Aiguille Grive en is een geweldig skioord om te verblijven als u een groep hebt met gevarieerde skivaardigheden, omdat de meeste paden zowel een makkelijke als moeilijkere optie hebben. Het is ook het makkelijkst gelegen oord voor toegang naar de Vanoise Express en het skigebied van La Plagne: Een stoeltjeslift en een blauwe piste is alles dat nodig is om naar de kabelbaan te komen vanuit Arc 1800. De zonnige, brede en boom-omzoomde pistes bieden iedereen ruim genoeg plaats.
Het levendige oord van Arc 1800, die ook de grootste is van de Les Arcs dorpen, krijgt steeds meer populariteit met de ontwikkeling van ‘Mille 8’ in de afgelopen jaren, wat de introductie van een paar super nieuwe voorzieningen betekent (voornamelijk geschikt voor familie's). Mille 8 is het nieuwste van het nieuwste, centrum van activiteiten/faciliteiten die skien tot 7.30 's avonds biedt, een 3800m2 water recreatiecentrum, thematische ontdekkingspiste door het bos, een grote glijbaan met slee, een freestyle hindernisparcours en video voorzieningen. Er zijn ook twee gedeeltes binnen de ontwikkeling die volledig toegewijs is aan beginners en jonge skiers die in een gespecialiseerd en veilig gebied beter kunnen worden.
Handige tip: als het mogelijk is, zouden we aanraden om de onderkant van de Charmettoger, Maïtaz en Villards pistes in Arc 1800, waar ze samenkomen met de Transarc gondel, te vermijden. Dit deel is vaak nogal ijzig en kan redelijk druk worden met mensen die proberen weg te blijven van het ijs! Om naar boven naar Arc 2000 te komen, raden we aan om het midden station te gebruiken van de Transarc gondel.

LES ARCS SKIING
LES ARCS BEGINNERS
There are 10 green slopes in Les Arcs:
- Vezaille, Millerette, Piste des Animaux in Arc 1600
- Step by step progression zone 1-3 steps (first slides, turns and runs) at Les Cabanes in Mille 8 in Arc 1800
- Low KL, Marais in Arc 2000
- Flocon, Cabri in Peisey Vallandry
Children and beginners are well catered for in Arc 1800 as 90% of the runs back to the resort are blues. There are some free lifts for first-timers: Lapin draglift, Jardin Alpin chairlift and the magic carpet in the children’s area. The wide and open nursery slopes in the ‘Front des Neiges’ area (right in the centre of Arc 1800) are easy and offer plenty of room. Whilst the wide tree-lined runs that lead back to the resort offer great practice space in a really good learning environment. In Arc 1800, the two green pistes can be found at the Mille 8 complex using the step by step progression system.
Watch out for the dedicated ‘Ski Tranquille’ slow skiing and snowboarding areas dotted around Les Arcs, as you may feel a little more at ease in these parts with like-minded skiers and boarders around you and not having to worry about holding anyone up.
LES ARCS INTERMEDIATES
Intermediates are sure to love the blue and red runs just above the resort of Arc 1800. The best snow can be found at Grand Col (2800m), which offers equally attractive runs for the intermediates and experts. The fantastic Malgovert run into Arc 1600 is often quiet and is accessible from the top of the Comborciere chairlift. Arc 2000 is also brilliant for intermediates with the majority of the runs being red and black.
LES ARCS EXPERTS
Les Arcs has over 30km of black runs for experts. The Olympic speed-skiing track can be tested by strong-hearted members of the public, starting at various heights according to experience.
Arc 2000 is perfect for experts. If you want to try the impressive and demanding longest run in the world, then head to the top of the Aiguille Rouge cable car in Arc 2000. Here you will find the Aiguille Rouge black run which is 16km long! Handy tip: about a third of the way down it does change from a black to a red run and it can get quite busy, so we recommend that you head here early on and make it your first run of the day.
For the mogul lovers out there head to the top of the Comboriciere and Ours black runs. They are steep and demanding and are accessible via the Arc 1800 lifts.
LES ARCS OFF-PISTE
Les Arcs deserves its very good reputation for fantastic off-piste skiing. The powder is excellent, due to the resort being spread over a large area, a lot of which is not touched by lift systems. Arc 2000 offers truly amazing off-piste possibilities.
The main off-piste area is, of course, the Aiguille Rouge glacier (in Arc 2000), where you have the longest run in the resort at 7km, with a 2100m vertical drop! The most popular runs can be found on the north face with an immense area of off-piste skiing in the direction of Villaroger.
A large part of this area is, in fact, a restricted nature reserve so this really is one of the last untouched areas of the Tarentaise. The most accessible and easiest run is the ‘Petit Face Nord’ and is easy to get to from the Traversee chairlift. The next step up involves a hike: the ‘Couloir Canadian’.
Parts are very steep and avalanches are common. The ‘Couloir en S’ is one of the hardest descents – a rope and ice axe are useful! An easier alternative s the ‘Col du Génépi’. The north-east slopes of the Aiguilles Rouge are classed as moderate. For any off-piste skiing on the glacier we would highly recommend a mountain guide.
The ‘Grand Col’ at 2835m to Villaroger, beneath the glacier, is a popular off-piste area. Alternatively, a longer climb from ‘Grand Col’ takes you to ‘Col des Roches’ on a west facing slope – however getting there does involve a scramble and a cable attached to the rocks would be helpful!
For novices, from the top of the Dos Rond there is a gentle off-piste slope that follows the Les Bauches blue. There is also an eay route from Col de la Chal down towards Nancroix.
LES ARCS SNOWPARKS
You will find Les Arcs' Apocalypse Parc (snowpark named after Regis Rolland for the cult film 'Apocalypse Snow') between Arcs 1600 and Arc 1800 and is served by a snowboarder-friendly J-bar lift. For years now this has been one of the most advanced parks in the French Alps and is on a par with the main park at Avoriaz which is highly rated. If you're after snowcross runs, you will find them below Col de la Chal at Arc 2000 or above Plan-Peisey.
From Arc 1600, take the Cachettes chairlift then join the Belvédère piste to reach the SnowPark chairlift.
From Arc 1800, take the Vagère chairlift and follow the Arpette.
From Arc 2000, you have to go downhill to Arc 1950 to catch the Bois de l’Ours chairlift then go back down on the other side towards Arc 1600. You then have a choice of several pistes of different levels to get to the Snowpark.
LES ARCS CROSS-COUNTRY
The ski area of Les Arcs/Peisey Vallandry has 55km of cross-country trails (131km in La Plagne also).
In Arc 1600 there is a loop starting at Courbaton, the top of the funicular.
In Arc 1800 a trail starts from the top of the Jardin Alpin chairlift.
In Arc 2000 the trail begins near the ESF 2000 ski school office.
Each trail is free to use and is approximately 5km in length.
However, for the best of the best cross-country skiing you need to be further down the valley in the Peisey-Nancroix Nordic area (Peisey-Vallandry), at the entrance of the Vanoise National Park – 44km of well kept and marked trails await you. There are also paths here for walkers, snowshoe trails and toboggan runs. You do have to purchase a pass to use these trails, but the good thing is that any profit they make purely goes into the daily upkeep of these beautiful trails.
LES ARCS SNOWBOADERS
Les Arcs is a hot spot and firm favourite with snowboarders, where many of the Pros choose to come. Les Arcs offers brilliant freeriding including steeps, trees, gullies, natural jobs and hits. Arc 1800 and Peisey-Vallandry offer the best wide-open rolling slopes for beginners and intermediates.
LES ARCS IN BAD WEATHER
If the weather turns bad, the clouds creep in and the snow falls heavy it can be hard to know where to ski. Avoid the high and open glaciers at all costs. The trick is to head for the tree-lined slopes as they provide definition when the slopes and the sky merge into one and everything seems white! Head to the lower resorts of Arc 1600, Arc 1800 and Peisey-Vallandry.
From the top of the Chantel and Les Villards chairlifts, you can take some long blue slopes through the trees from Arc 1800 to Arc 1600. La Plagne Montalbert is another safe beat with gentle blues that cut through the trees and as you will be lower here you may even completely miss the high cloud causing the bad weather. There are also plenty of trees to be found in Vallandry, Plan Peisey and Montchavin/Les Coches.
