Best Ski Areas in Les Arcs

Discover the best of the Les Arcs ski area


Les Arcs is part of the Paradiski linked ski area, which is one of the largest ski areas in Europe and the second biggest linked ski area in the world. 

The Paradiski incorporates all of the resort villages of Les Arcs with those in La Plagne, meaning that no matter where you stay, you have access to the whole Paradiski area with its 141 lifts, 260 pistes and 425 kilometres of ski terrain. Of these 260 pistes, 12 are green, 135 are blue, 77 are red and 37 are black (see the piste map).

Over 70% of the Paradiski ski area is above 2,000 metres which means plenty of snow throughout the season. You can ski from village level at 1,250 metres all the way up to 3,250 metres at the highest point.
