Les Arcs - Resort Information

Les Arcs
Find resort information here. We appreciate that you may not know very much about the resort you are travelling to so we have put together a really handy page of information about Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Peisey Vallandry, including details on parking and buses.

Arc 1800

Arc 1800 has 3 covered car parks located at Charvet, Villards and Charmettoger.  There are also 3 outdoor car parks. As soon as you arrive into resort you are in a ‘pay for parking’ zone, including along public roads. After taking your ticket at the entrance you will have 4 hours free. You can then choose your space in an outdoor or indoor car park, according to where your accommodation is.

If you have not pre booked your car parking space, you have the option of pre-payment when you arrive, or payment at the end of your stay. You can pay either at the exit pay point, the automatic cashdesk or reception of the car park. After paying, you have one hour to leave by one of the exits.

Arc 1950

Parking is simple and essential in Arc 1950, as the resort is traffic free. There is a secure underground car park with direct access to all residences via lifts. Parking spaces can be reserved in advance  or paid for in resort. There are 721 spaces (the height limit is 3.70m).


Peisey Vallandry

Plan Peisey and Vallandry have several free outdoor car parks but there is not any communal covered parking in either resort. It is best to enquire about covered parking with the accommodation itself, as hotels and residences may have their own.

Free Shuttle

Les Arcs operates a shuttle bus between the different levels, which is free to those with lift passes. These start at 7.30am and continue until 7.40pm. There is a short gondola that links Arc 1950 and 2000, which runs at the same times as the bus.

Plan Peisey and Vallandry are serviced by a free shuttle bus service which runs every 30 minutes between the 2 villages normally from 9am to 6pm. Arc 1800 and Peisey-Vallandry are linked by La Fðret ski run which can be used to walk between the 2 places. Otherwise you would need to organise a taxi to travel between the two.



Pistes & Connectability


For someone not used to the squiggly lines on a piste map, here are the colours of piste explained. Everyone will have their favourite pistes and discovering them is all part of the excitement, but here are a few of our favourite runs that we highly recommend.


Type of run
Our Favouites
Nursery and easy runs, some with a slight gradient increase and a few more bumps and uneven ground that may test your balance
Vallée de l'Arc and Mont Blanc
Suitable for the intermediate level skier who is confident on steeper slopes with increased bumps, can be challenging in places
Arandelieres and Gold
For advanced and experienced skiers only, who can master very difficult, steep and uneven terrain
Aiguille Rouge and Refuge
When a black piste is marked as Nature, or with an orange diamond, this donates an ungroomed black piste. Expect difficult mogully terrain
Robert Blanc and Ours
