Les Arcs’ reputation as a world class mountain bike destination cannot be denied. Featured in numerous articles in Dirt Magazine and most recently August 2013 Coven magazine, this resort incorporates something for all riders, from a world class downhill course to northshore trails and from slopestyle parks to massive backcountry.
We know, however, that for you it’s the awesome singletrack descents that will bring you to Les Arcs. With the highest lift accessible start point at 2700 metres and the valley floor 2000 vertical metres below there are literally hundreds of kilometres of trails to throw yourself down, jaw-dropping open tracks of the high mountain lead down into the forest for some seriously technical adventure.
Whether you want an adrenalin-charged challenge or a more leisurely appreciation of the stunning trails and breathtaking views of the Tarentaise valley, the trails here will not fail to satisfy.
As well as having some of the best terrain in the world on our doorstep we also have some other fantastic resorts within easy reach of the chalet. In 2016, subject to minimum numbers, we will be offering optional away days to enable you to experience some of the other amazing riding the region has to offer. (Prices to be confirmed)
La Thuile – (1hr drive) Downhill, freeride and singletrack. Typically dusty, steep and flowing. Great fun on any bike although some suspension is advised as it can get a bit hairy in places
Tignes –(40mins drive)
Freeride and Downhill and smooth flowing trails with some large man-made features such as wall rides, step downs, creek gaps and the infamous step up. (none are compulsory). With the addition of the lake activities available in Tignes (although the water is a bit chilly for most of the season) this is a great day out.
Val D’Isere – (50 mins drive) Downhill and freeride. Can be easily combined with Tignes as the lifts link the resorts together.
Pila(3 hours drive) – Downhill. Ex world cup track and seriously steep prolonged descents. Fantastic for a days riding, fully recommended for those that really want to go fast and get loose. Downhill bike recommended.
