Guaranteed Snow

Les arcs, guaranteed snow from the opening of the resort!

And for several reasons:

1/Les Arcs is a high-altitude resort: 70% of the Paradiski area is situated above 2,000 metres and its highest point, the Aiguille Rouge, is at an altitude of 3,226 metres. Accordingly, natural snow coverage guarantees exceptional snow conditions from the opening date in December until the end of the season in April.

2/The ski area is also equipped with the very latest in high-performance artificial snow systems which enables us to guarantee quality snow coverage and to ensure links to the various parts of the resort. Snow is produced in autumn using water from the melting snow in spring, which is held in Europe’s biggest reservoir. 
 


SNOW PRODUCTION

The area is equipped with 600 snow machines supplied with water by a 70-km network.
This "growing snow" is produced from compressed air and water sprayed under pressure at sub-zero temperatures.

The water comes from the reservoir of l L'Adret des Tuffs, based at Arc 2000. Its capacity is 400 000m³ and is filled in spring when the snow melt. 

Snow production is well thought through and adheres to the seasons’ cycle.
