Les arcs is a top resort, no doubt about it. I go there nearly every year and it never disappoints - great wide runs for carving, jibs at the pisteside, nice park and loads of off piste to enjoy. Even better now is the paradski pass with la plagne, which opens up all the amazing off piste over there too. Loads of great places to eat and the nightlife is top in 1800. If you're there to enjoy yourself, stay in 1800 as 1600 and 2000 are very family orientated.

I stayed at the 1950 resort in the Radisson Apartments and it is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed at. I'm not much of a ski resort expert, but I have stayed in some very nice places, 1950 would be in the top 3. It is a wonderful, beautiful place with some excellent restaurants. The Spirit 1950 ski and snowboard school were top notch. The people and staff were very friendly and made my stay incredibly enjoyable. Everone in m party had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back in a few months!

Having an apartment in Arc 2000, means we have skied there 10 weeks in the past 4 years and it remains my favourite resort for skiing with its varied selection of pisted runs. I agree that there is not so much for the absolute beginner but there are masses of blues, reds and blacks which always seem different as the conditions change. There is masses of off-piste too. Both near/inbetween pistes and out of the way places if you know where to look. There are lots of options to link between the 4 main resorts so you never have to queue. I particularly like the on-piste refreshment huts which mean you can stop and snack without spending a fortune and the fact that there are public toilets all ov

Les Arcs is split over several resourts, named after their height; 1600, 1800, 1950 and 2000. Sitting above Bourg St. Maurice, you can get the TGV from Paris or London, and then take a furnicular train upto 1600 ... no planes and hire cars necessary! I would recommend the new 1950 resort for its 100% ski in-out, facilities (pools, jacuzzi's) and fantastic luxury apartments. I stayed in the HMC Hameau in 2006, and plan on visiting the Radisson Hotel in 2007 (free WiFi). Les arcs has lots of terrain, with paradiski it's one of the biggest linked ski areas in the world! You won't be disappointed!
