Reference the review on Les Arc coppied below. This report is complete nonsence. The Vanoise Express was withdrawn from use in December 2007, check official website for Paradiski. They have detailed in full the reasons why. Very brave of them considering the financial implications this may have for the resort. Les Arc and Paradiski offer fantastic sking for all levels. The locals are very friendly. Having skied there many times we love it. Yes it's basic in places but your there to ski! Food fantastic, resturants great, no fast food no McDonalds or other Yankee crap. Andy the Scotsman January 19th, 2008

Overall 2 of 5Family Friendly 2 of 5Downhill Terrain 2 of 5Terrain Park 2 of 5Apres Ski 2 of 5my party went to les arcs just before the season started, to get an idea of what we would be skiing on later on at our next visit. We visited the lower cable car station of the Vanoise express, and wow!! we watched it crash into the station - man was i glad we werent on it - broken necks for sure!!
Anyway, having returned in early january, we werent surprised to see the lift closed for the season!! - This has severely restricted the amount of skiing you can do unless you have wheels. The snow was great though, although the attitude of quite a few of the locals left a lot to be desired - hardly a friendly and welcoming place - if you dont stay in one of the top hotels, then facilities are pretty limited, ok though if you dont mind roughing it for a week.
I will return to les arcs, when i get bored with all the other fantastic resorts in the zone
