Les ArcsBy Will • Mar 11th, 2006 • Category: Doreen, Snow
We just arrived home after a week skiing at Les Arcs France high in the Alps. We stayed in a great resort – Les Arcs 1950 (all parking underground – leading straight to hotel and a quaint village above.

Unfortunately, we had too much snow. It took us 5 hours to climb the last 20 kilometres. We bought chaims at the bottom and I learned how to install them about half way up. 5 kms from the top a bus got stuck ….. yuck.
This was three and a half hours longer than it took me to bike the route this summer (photo below).
We had a great little suite with views right onto the slopes.
There was too much snow. The continuous storms meant that most lifts were closed several days. Still there were a couple of days of very good skiing.
