Les Arcs is a very family-friendly ski resort and many of the pistes are wonderful to learn and improve on. The range of non-ski activities is decent too so if the kids feel like a break from the slopes you can rest assured there’s a range of alternative activities to enjoy together.

The ice caves of Les Arcs sit at the top of the mighty Transarc gondola lift and make for a wonderful visit for families with children. Cold, dark and exciting, the caves are populated by all manner of interesting creatures. Construction of the caves begins in November and the theme changes each year. It’s a sure-fire way of getting the kids excited! http://en.lesarcs.com/ice-cave-going-out

There’s a brilliant sports centre in Les Arcs, the Club de Sports in Arcs 1800, which offers visitors a range of activities including tennis and squash, swimming, climbing and trampolining. If you need a non-ski sport to keep the kids entertained, this is the place to visit. http://www.sports-lesarcs.com/vad/commander/index.php

If you are keen to try a spot of tobogganing, Plan Peisey sits at the base of the resort and there’s a brilliant tobogganing area for kids there. The Discovery Pistes area in Arcs 1800 and 1600 is a great place to come and learn about nature in the mountains, and the dedicated children’s area also in Arcs 1800 is also great for tobogganing and climbing.

Ice skating is popular and the resort has two rinks; one natural rink and one artificial. The rinks are located in Foret du Beauchet 1800 and Place Haute 2000.

And of course for something simple, families can take kids to the cinema in Arcs 1600 and 1800, or to the bowling alley.
