A guide for powder hounds looking for thrills.
Les Arcs, situated in the Savoie region of France, is up there as one of the most varied resorts on the planet. What it lacks in quaint mountain village charm, with its 70’s tower blocks dominating the town, it makes up for with its excellent skiing and stunning views of Mont Blanc. Most of the runs are over 2,000m, so the snow reliability is very good, and there’s heaps of seriously steep ungroomed black runs and off-piste to roam.
Les Arcs is connected to neighbouring resort La Plagne to form the gigantic Paradiski area. With a mega 425 kilometres of slopes across 3 resorts and the highest peak towering at 3250 metres, Paradiski can confidently claim itself to be a “playground with no boundaries”, especially for free-riders who have tonnes of lines to try. Here is an extensive list of routes to help you plan your adventure.
