Visitor Reviews of Les Arcs

joe from Lebanon writes:

En mi mars 2018, j ai ete aux Arcs 1800.
Belle station, acces facile aux pistes qui sont bien amenagees et entretenues(
malgre le mauvais temps et frequentes chutes de neige, ns avons pu continuer a skier presque normalement).
A recommander, surtout du cote de Vallandry.
Le passage vers La Plagne ne vaut pas la peine.
