Les Arcs Invites Skiers To Test The Snow A Week Before Opening

On Saturday  8th December, French ski resort  Les Arcs invites skiers to enjoy the early season snow as part of a new initiative,

A week before  the official opening  of the resort,  La Belle Aventure offers a day of ski touring when no lifts are open, to enjoy the new snow and the serenity of the mountains. It is a friendly day open to all levels – for free!

Skiers   will start in  Arc 2000  and in groups  accompanied  by mountain  guides,  steadily  go up to either  the Igloo Village or Col de la Chal. They will then descend and enjoy making first tracks in the Vallee de l’Arc before heading back down to enjoy lunch together. More details  on lesarcs.com.               

On the official Les Arcs website there is the chance to enter a competition to win a weekend  in Les Arcs to participate in La Belle Aventure.

The prize is for two people and includes accommodation, transport,  equipment, meals  and of course  the day  ski touring as part of La Belle Aventure.
