This winter, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Travelski, who’ll be offering direct trains to the Alps as part of a package. Find out more here.
You can also hit the slopes by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then hopping on a TGV train to Moûtiers and Bourg-Saint-Maurice. You will be able to book tickets for the whole journey through our website from autumn.
And you won’t need to worry about missing your connection in Paris. Because Eurostar is a member of Railteam, your ticket will allow you to jump on the next available train in Paris if you’re delayed or your train is cancelled.
Whatever your ski or snowboard level, Les Arcs is an excellent resort – home to some of the best ski terrain in the Alps. It also has one of the easiest and cheapest train-to-resort links - via the funicular that runs from Bourg-St-Maurice to Arc 1600.
With four different slope-side villages, Les Arcs makes a great base from which to explore the huge 425km Paradiski area. The quick access to the pistes is wonderfully convenient and the variety of terrain caters for every level of skier. High-altitude, gentle blue runs mean that beginners can enjoy the panoramic views; intermediates, meanwhile, will be in their element, clocking up the miles on the network of pistes; and experts will find plenty of steeper descents to tackle, as well as an abundance of off-piste terrain.
The majority of the accommodation in Les Arcs is self-catering apartments although there are a few 3* hotels in Les Arcs 1800 and a new 5* hotel, the Taj-I Mah, in Arc 2000. Sitting on the edge of the forest, the centrally located Résidence Charmettoger is just 300 meters from the slopes and lifts leading to Espace Paradiski.
For higher end ski-in/ski-out apartments Arc 1950 is hard to beat. As well as offering excellent access to the pistes, take advantage of its spa and wellness area alongside its outdoor pools and jacuzzi.
