Village and ski system
Arc 1950 is a well-designed picturesque pedestrian only village which is truly ski in ski out. Les Arcs consist of the four resort areas Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950, and Arc 2000. They are linked to La Plagne via the double decker Vanoise Express cable car which gives access to La Plagne to form the second largest linked ski system in the world – Paradiski. More than 425 km of pistes and two glaciers. It serves beginners as well as expert skiers and has a range of “safe” off-piste to really challenging back-country. Most of the ski area is above 2000 meters which makes it very snow safe.
The village has a well-stocked supermarket, bakery and as well as a good selection of bars and restaurants, ski-school, ski and clothes shops, etc. There is an entertainment program each week and lots of free activities for children. Arc 1950 has a direct connection (also in the evenings) to Arc 2000 where you find additional bars, restaurants, shops, and bowling.

Les Arc 1950 is within easy reach from major airports such as Geneva, Chambery, and Lyon. From there you can access the villages by bus, coach, car or private taxi. If you are arriving to any of the mentioned airports and are a party of 4 or more, consider a rental car instead of coach/bus as it tends to be cheaper. If you choose to drive, there is a secure underground parking at approx. €98 per week. With your own car you can also easily access the mega resorts Val Thorens/Courchevel, Val d’Isère /Tignes or smaller Ste Foy and La Rosière (where you can ski into Italy and La Thuile).
Weekly train connections from Paris and other French locations. At the railway station in Bourg Sainte-Marurice there is access to the free Funicolar to ARC 1650 and then there is a free shuttle to ARC 1950
