In each of the residences, there are swimming pools, jacuzzis and fitness rooms where you can relax after skiing. For even more relaxation, hit up the 1000m2 Deep Nature Arc 1950 Spa, complete with themed grottos, counter current pool, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, nail bar and massage rooms with an incredible view of Mont Blanc. Or why not stay all day?

The Village offers a wide range of activities for visitors, with a different theme every week. Many of them are free, and there’s even spectacular fireworks. From meeting reindeer during Christmas week to the big air free-ride event, there is something for everyone.

The resort of Arc 1950 le Village is situated right in the heart of Paradiski, one of the world’s largest and most beautiful ski areas. Combining Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne, this massive winter playground offers breath-taking panoramas and 425km of slopes. Ski right back in to the village with snow covered streets to the doorstep of each residence and even to the doorways of most of the boutiques: ski and shop! When you ski through the Village, your gaze is captured by the views of Mont Blanc, the Aiguille Rouge and the mountains of the Tarentaise valley. The slopes are wonderfully groomed and you can enjoy skiing at every altitude, from the top of the Aiguille Rouge at 3226m to Villaroger at 1200m.

Did we mention the thrilling new zipline? From the top of Varet gondola, Les Arcs’ new zipline highlights an emblematic place in the history of Les Arcs. Indeed, the zipline flies over the “flying kilometer” slope that was created for the 1992 Albertville Olympics. The descent at 130 km/hr is bound to test your limits!
