Located just below the village of Arc 2000, Arc 1950 offers excellent access to the slopes and great high altitude skiing. More experienced skiers can access the Aiguille Rouge, at an altitude of over 3,000m within three lifts from the resort, while there are plenty of cruising blues above Arc 2000 for more recreational skiers.

Les Arcs offers a huge diversity of skiing with pistes for every standard of skier or boarder.  All the villages have easily accessible nursery slopes and intermediates will love the interlinked blue and red runs that range from high, wide, open space to sheltered tree runs.  Experienced skiers will enjoy the variety of black runs and the guided off-piste or they may even wish to try their hand at speed skiing.  Les Arcs has fantastic facilities for boarders with a snow park and 3 permanent boardercross (one in Arc 1600 and two in Arc 2000). New this winter: Rodeo Park, at the top of the Col de la Chal (arrival point of the Transarc gondola lift or Arcabulle chair lift): 3,000 metres of pure fun and exhilaration!
