SEASON 2015/16

There's still a week of the season to go at Les Arcs, and all sorts of silly things are taking place (#BubbleFoot, Ride'n'Golf, Zumba at 2600m.....).  Full details on the resort's Facebook Page.

But it's never too late to start thinking about next season, and there are some new things in the pipeline.

Over in La Plagne, the final go-ahead for the Montalbert telecabine is about to be granted by the département.  There are big changes planned to the lifts at Les Arcs' neighbour over the coming years; for more click here.

Back in Les Arcs, watch out for:

  • A new Col des Frettes chairlift which will link Arc 1800 with Arc 2000.  Planning permission has just gone in.  I am advised that it's a formality, but let's see
  • A new "lodge" on the Mille 8 site - it's half built already, so this is definitely happening
  • The long-awaited pedestrian lift which will finally link the Chantel slopes with Chantel & Edenarc
  • A new hotel at the Edenarc development, which is opening on 4 July


The lift will (I believe) leave from Edenarc rather
than the Arc 1800 front de neige
