Arc 1600

Arc 1600, the perfect destination for forest-skiing enthusiasts

Arc 1600 was the first resort village to open in Les Arcs, in 1968. This family-friendly, welcoming and reasonably sized village combines authenticity and calm. Despite its small ski area, Arc 1600 offers numerous possibilities for snow sports, allowing enthusiasts to try out more wide-ranging, comprehensive sectors thanks to the range of infrastructure.

A ski area in a forest

Lying within a compact stretch of terrain, Arc 1600 consists mainly of low-altitude forest runs. With the right equipment from the ski hire shop, snow sports fans of all abilities can amuse themselves on the natural tracks, weaving between the trees.

Good to know: the forest ski area has a variety of runs

With good snow cover more often than not, the Arc 1600 forest ski area is a playground for all skiers, from absolute beginners to the most seasoned of experts. You’ll find mostly blue runs, as well as a fair number of red runs, including one known for having served as the location of the Ski World Cup.

Arc 1600, a short journey from the Les Arcs ski area

While its own ski area may be small, this resort village pulls out all the stops to boost its appeal. Ski hire shops, group lessons and modern ski lifts await holidaymakers today, and getting to the larger Les Arcs ski area is quick and easy.

Easily accessible by car or high-speed rail, the Arc 1600 resort village offers holidaymakers a calm and friendly atmosphere, with its pedestrian streets and compact ski area. Wait no longer! Get yourself to the Skiset ski hire shops and head straight out onto the slopes.
