As the biggest and liveliest resort of the Les Arcs ski area, Arcs 1800 is comprised of four villages: 'Charvet', 'Villards', 'Charmettoger', and 'Chantel.' Within the Les Arcs ski area, there are over 100 downhill runs and 200 kilometres of terrain in total. As a west facing resort, you will enjoy sunny afternoons and great snow conditions, as the fresh snowfall is usually blown down from Arcs 2000, where its settles at Arcs 1800.
The resort is good for beginners and experts alike. Most black runs are now 'Natur' runs due to the huge mogul fields which are created, and are often deserted. A great run for experts is the Aiguille Rouge-Villaroger run. Even in peak season, you will not find this slope busy as the top part is fairly challenging. All you will find is a fabulously long, wide slope with great snow, no matter what the weather. For beginners, there are 'ski tranquille' beginner zones at each of the three main Arcs.
Snowboarders will be happy at Les Arcs 1800, as there is plenty of freeriding, including: gullies, trees and natural jibs.
The bars are definitely more popular than clubs, and popular spots are the Etranger, Chez Boubou and the Red Hot Saloon. There is often live music playing in bars as well, and if you want to watch the sun rise, your best bet is heading to The J.O. bar.
