Facilities: Club Med Arcs Extreme features

Ski
Whatever your level, there's a slope waiting for you and your skis. The top of the ski area is 2000 metres above the bottom. Between the two lie 200 kilometres of slopes. Runs include the iconic Aiguille Rouge, 7 kilometres of pure pleasure. Grab hold of your poles and push off. The great outdoors is waiting.

Snowboard
Try out your jibs and grabs in the snowpark. Snake down the marked pistes. Or strike out onto the fresh snow. The enormous winter sports area holds an incredible range of possibilities. Put on your boots and make your way to the lifts, mere yards from the Resort. They will take you as high as 3250 metres above sea level. It's seventh heaven for snowboarders.

Entertainment
There's a party atmosphere every night at this adults-only Resort. The lower the temperature drops outside, the more fun you can have indoors. Winter sports and exciting evening entertainment are two sides of the same coin. When you take off your skis, the fun has only just begun. Cocktails in the bars, shows the theatre and plenty of chance to dance. Get ready to finish off your day in style.

Fitness
Carve out time for yourself and take care of your body with our fitness classes. Each morning, get off on the right foot with a workout. When you come in from the slopes, treat your muscles to some stretching. Soon you'll be ready to dance the night away. And if you've still got some energy left, you can take advantage of the cardio training and weights room.


Please Note: Some services are at extra cost. We advise you to pre-book these services. They may also be purchased on site at the start of your holiday.

Les Arcs came to be in 1968 after a group of ski instructors and architects dreamt up a resort with all the perks of a village but a mountainside location. It grew into one of the largest, most incredible ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of a couple of hours, plus transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble. Present-day Les Arcs consists of four main purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was created for doorstep skiing and is linked by a funicular ...
As you'd expect from one of the biggest ski areas on the planet, there's everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to wild, white-knuckle off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has 'ski tranquille' zone, and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients perfect for practising. Local instructors are on hand to show you the ropes, with ski schools based in each of the main villages (1800 has the most). There are magic carpet lifts at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for newbies to get up ...
If you're looking for a party, Arc 1800 is the place to be. With heaps of watering holes like the Red Hot Saloon (or the 'Red Bar' to use local lingo), Benji's and La Folie Douce. If you're looking for more of a French-style après spot, Ambiente Cafe has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails (happy hour usually starts at 4) while Le club 1950 your venue if you're looking to party into the wee hours. Arc 1600's a little quieter but for good music and a scenic terrace check out Les 2 Têtes. In te...

"Manager Jean Pierre is amazing"

Lorraine
5/ out of 5
The best thing about this Club Med hotel is the guy that runs it, Jean Pierre. He made the whole experience and I hope they keep him! He was like energy on legs and was everywhere, all the time, dressed up in some different outfit – at the bar at 2am and 4am, there when you were having breakfast, sitting on top of a bubble gun when you came in at 11... The staff had a different theme every day, they’d be dressed up in Alice in Wonderland costumes one day and something else the next. The staff’s energy was tremendous and they always said hello to you. It was really impressive and made you want to be in the staff, they seemed to have more fun than anyone else! It’s not a posh hotel, but they counter balance it with this astonishing amount of effort. The whole thing was an experience overload - it’s like hi-de-hi gone bonkers. The bedrooms were fine and the rest of the hotel was slightly on the tired side, but we knew that before we went. There were rumours that it was being knocked down/upgraded this summer… My daughter’s feedback is that they need more lifts. The cleaning staff were really good, folding everything up beautifully (probably Jean Pierre's influence!). The food is probably everyone’s idea of happy heaven, but for me it was a bit too much. They serve up everything all in one go, things like foie gras, beef wellington, smoked salmon, roast lamb…. For afternoon tea you could have anything and everything. I think it was a bit over the top and there was too much waste, people can’t resist trying everything and then you end up leaving things. If they scaled back and served 3 or 4 options rather than 23 it would have been better. Location-wise, 2000 has nothing to do, but you have no reason to go out when you’re staying at Club Med. The ski in and ski out is definitely not for beginners, but you can do it by walking around if you don’t want to ski. My girls went out on the lessons with the ski instructors and were reluctant at first but ended up enjoying it. Overall I would definitely recommend it to people who want all inclusive.
