Visitor Reviews of Les Arcs

Ollie from United Kingdom writes:

From a 45yr old experienced skier with 2 young daughters:
Les Arcs is a fabulous, family find. Having skied all over, I can't think of a better established European resort for all the gang to enjoy. It's 'ski in - ski out' (truly!) It's high so during those warmer, Easter holidays it invariably has snow. It's well linked with a variety of intermediate runs, along with snow-parks and a ski/snowboard-cross course. Oh, and Euros are cheap right now, so France is a winner over Switzerland for all but the least cost conscious by a long way. Ok, there is minimal nightlife compared to other European resorts and truly challenging terrain is limited, but those are relatively unimportant for a family trip. What you do get is plenty for adults and kids to enjoy together, until maybe your kids start outstripping you which happens all too quickly.
