A SKI AREA IN CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT

The great ski champion Emile Allais, visiting the site of Les Arcs before it was built, said at the start of the 1960s: « This is really is a perfect place for a winter sports resort ».

Today, just like in the past, the resort has preserved its philosophy of discovery and the ski runs are still an innovative playground.

For this season, Les Arcs remains at the cutting edge of technology.

 

- Aiguille Rouge, a great view from the summit of Les Arcs

This year, ‘The Aiguille Rouge footbridge’, a real innovation, has been built so that everyone can admire the exceptional beauty.

Accessible to pedestrians and children as well as skiers.

On one side, you have a view of the whole Alpine in all its majesty. On the other side, you look down on the Villaroger Nature Reserve. From there, the views of Mont Turia and Mont Pourri are quite stunning.

As an additional aesthetic touch, the cabin of the Aiguille Rouge cable car has been given a full facelift and will be a beautiful bright red.

 

- The Vallée de l’Arc continues to improve

After the upgrading of Pré Saint Esprit chair and the widening of the Vallée de l’Arc run last year, Comborcière chairlift is being replaced this winter to make it easier to get to Arc 1600 from the bottom of the Vallée de l’Arc. This simple and robust lift will carry up to 2400 skiers/hr.

At the top, a connected picnic area

A new run will allow skiers to discover an unknown side of the Arc 2000 sector.

 

-Ski like a star

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Les Arcs Film Festival, Arc 1950 is dedicating a run that goes right through the village to the stars who have marked the festival, with autographed pictures of the artists.
