Les Arcs - high altitude skiing & guaranteed snow

For your family ski holiday, Les Arc 2000 is built on the extensive snow-sure slopes of the fabulous Paradiski area, high above the Tarentaise valley. Les Arcs is made up of four purpose-built ski resorts at the ascending heights of 1,600m (Arcs 1600), 1,800m (Arcs 1800), 1,950m (Arcs 1950) and 2,000m. The doorstep skiing of Arcs 2000 is a major plus for skiing families. The whole family can put their skis on practically outside their front door and be off on the slopes together.

For your Les Arcs ski holidays, our Hotel Les Mélèzes is situated in the best of the four – Arcs 2000 at the foot of the Aiguille Rouge, in a secluded snow-sure bowl close to the guaranteed snow of the Glacier du Varet.
