Vallandry, the new “go to” sector of the ski area

 +  A new gondola

A comfortable 10-seat gondola, installed where the old Vallandry chairlift used to be, will take skiers from the bottom of the slopes to an altitude of 2138 m in just 6 minutes. It is open to both skiers and pedestrians.

 +  A new panoramic terrace and relaxation area for an informative halt

This terrace is a real panoramic belvedere and a spot where skiers and non-skiers can meet up for a “suspended” moment. A lovely “Relaxation Area” has also been created where people can take a break or have a meal in a welcoming decor that highlights the local pastoral culture with exhibitions of traditional objects and local plants.

 +  A Mountain Animal Museum to raise holidaymakers’ awareness

On the upper floor of the Relaxation Area, a Mountain Animal Museum will present some thirty species of local fauna. The unique museum has been put together in close collaboration with the Vanoise National Park whose experts will make regular visits to hold discussions or offer presentations of the mountains’ ecosystem. A fun way of learning more about the local biodiversity and the best ways of preserving it. Entry to the Mountain Animal Museum is free.

Dizzying sensations on a zip line

Les Arcs’ zipline is bound to be THE new attraction of the winter. The zipline, which passes over the old Flying Kilometre run which held the world speed skiing record for many years (251.40 km/hr, Simone Orgone’s performance, 2006), will make it possible to reach speeds of 130 km/hr, on your own or on a dual ride! After the descent, you can collect a souvenir photo to share with your friends. Don’t forget to smile!

A new panoramic terrace and an eco-responsible café

A new 40-seat terrace 2700 m above sea level has been designed as a place where skiers and non-skiers can meet up. A convivial café created by Maison Falcoz has also been installed there, where you will be able to get homemade soup, a tramezzino sandwich, a baker’s calzone or a pie. The bread is homemade, baked in the wood fire. The Falcoz family do not compromise on eco-responsibility and all their products will be organic, fair trade and, as far as possible, from short circuits. The organic waste will be recycled and used for compost. There will not be any bottles of mineral water, but good Les Arcs water in either a flat or fizzy version and a selection of explosive hot and cold drinks that will get your taste buds tingling! The café is a partner of the “Une bouteille à la mer” Association. Spending time together on a balcony overlooking fabulous scenery, enjoying a snack prepared ethically and expertly and “flying like a bird”: that is what Les Arcs is promising this winter!

Carreley, THE Instagram spot !

This winter, to make the most of this viewpoint and its 180° panorama of Mont Blanc and Le Roignaix, skiers will be able to relax on a terrace that has just been fitted out with very trendy 2-person deckchairs, a picnic area, Wifi access and recharging points. THE EYE-CATCHING DETAIL "LES ARCS" in huge letters and a swing, with Mont Blanc in the background for some unusual photos!

In Les Arcs, we have dusted off our ski passes!

Two winters ago, we created the new “Essential” and “Premium” multi-activity passes in Les Arcs, a small revolution in the world of ski resorts. We listened to our guests’ requirements and came up with this new way of enjoying the mountain in response to their thirst for freedom, experiences and discoveries.
