The low down
A charming village set in the heart of the Les Arcs collection, just nestled within the tree line with one cracking ski terrain waiting above it. 1800 is a purpose built resort made with the ethos of ease and convenience in mind, meaning it is no more than a couple minutes walk to the shops or the slopes from your accommodation. With the whole area split up into several different villages Arc 1800 is the liveliest of its 5 siblings, and with it being easily accessible from Bourg St Maurice on the funicular there are loads of travel possibilities. With this up and coming resort a lot of time is being put into improving the village so keep an eye out for this steamer.
With 200km of pisted runs for you to carve up, there is something for everyone; with a good infrastructure of blue runs around the base and the intricate workings of red and black runs that expand throughout the higher parts of the Les Arc area. Not only that but after a day of powder surfing through the Vallandry, you’ll question why you even need to leave!
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a corduroy king then get the Paradiski lift pass extension to open your world up to 420km of pistes with a ride over to the La Plagne ski area. Powder monkeys can also get their fix where there is no other way to ride apart from waist deep in powder at the Bellecote glacier before heading back to Les Arcs for the infamous Aprés on the sun soaked terrace of Les Allobroges.
The social side
Once the sun goes down the partying really starts! Why don’t you drop in to a Wasteland favorite, Red Hot Saloon, where our very own Welsh dynamo has been running the place this season so you’re sure to get the best deals and a few cheeky freebies here and there. If you’re a bit of a night owl carry on the party into the wee hours of the morning in Bar King Mad club then head to the best kebab shop in the Alp’s – Le Kebab ! Where the kebabs are ace and you could possibly be served by some of our Wasteland Reps when it gets really busy.
If late nights on the lash aren’t your thing then there are many other activities to do in Les Arcs, but one of our favorites is to take a wonder round the village or visit 1950 to take in the scenery.On top of this Wasteland has perfect en-bloc accommodation here that’s in such easy reach of all the great bars, 2 nightclubs, shops, slopes and facilities on offer- so why not try a bit of paradise in Paridiski?
