Les Arcs is made up of four modern, purpose built resorts: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000, each offering direct access to the slopes. Each resort is largely pedestrianised and self-contained, and have their own bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a range of activities. You can take a shuttle bus (free with your lift pass, running every 20 minutes) between villages so you can easily enjoy the entertainments in each resort.
There are also three outlying villages within the ski area – Plan Peisey, Vallandry and Peisey Nancroix. These are smaller, traditional villages.
Les Arcs & La Plagne were joined together in 2003 by the Vanoise Express cable car from Plan Peisey, a huge double decker ski lift that boasts a capacity of 200 people, making it the biggest, longest and fastest cable car in the world.
The Paradiski area gives you access to 425km of piste, 171 lifts, 2 glaciers (at over 3000 metres), 2 snow parks and 100km of cross-country ski trails.
