As part of Paradiski, Les Arcs gives you access to one of the biggest linked ski areas in the world. Combined, Les Arcs and La Plagne have more than 20 locations, 2 summits higher than 3000m and 261 pistes. The whole area is navigable using only blue runs, making it ideal for intermediate skiers. There’s plenty for advanced skiers too, including some legendary off-piste.
Les Arcs have appointed a team of resort ambassadors who are making the most of the ski area. All of them get involved in promoting the resort and you can read about them here.
We met with Marion Grognet, Marketing and Communications Director for Les Arcs who told us a little bit more about the programme. And then we were lucky enough to catch up with two of the Riders Team, Marielle Berger (ski cross) and Nicolas Secerov (mountain biking), to find out what they love about Les Arcs and ask them about some of their favourite places in resort.
In case you didn’t catch the French names of Marielle and Nico’s favourite spots to eat and drink, here they are along with contact info and locations:
