Enjoying Les Arcs From A Different Perspective-guitarpro5

Travel-and-Leisure Les Arcs has long been renowned for starting new crazes. In fact, it has often been described as cutting-edge, an adjective you rarely find applied to a ski resort! It has been the birthplace of many innovations that have now spread to other ski resorts. Consisting of four base villages – with a wide selection from which to choose a tastefully appointed catered chalet where you and your family can stay in luxury and .fort – Les Arcs is the destination of those who crave not only an expansive ski space, but also who want to see something unique, interesting, and ultimately memorable. Up in the Air While the magnificent back country surrounding Les Arcs (as well as the other neighbouring ski resorts) can be viewed at leisure astride a chairlift, you can actually up the ante by getting on board a helicopter for some unforgettable sightseeing. There is a local .pany that operates helicopter sightseeing tours around the Paradiski region, which can be a perfect opportunity to test any new photographic equipment youve brought along. Within easy access of your catered chalet, head to the Heli-mountains office or, better yet, arrange for a tour in advance. Behind a Horse A different way to ski, ski-joering is actually a traditional way of getting around the snow on your skis but while being pulled by a horse! Centuries old and mostly forgotten, ski-joering has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity – due largely to the efforts of a man named Jacques Fillietroz, who reintroduced the activity here in Les Arcs. He also applied some safety-related innovations that allowed children as young as seven years old to take part in the activityensuring riders would not find themselves sliding in to the horses rump at sudden stops! So if youre staying in a catered chalet in the resort and youre in the mood to try something different, ski-joering could be for you. It is offered at the resorts equestrian centre. Shop till you Drop You didn’t .e all the way to Les Arcs just to go shopping, right? But as long as youre here, why not try out Les Arcs local shopping scene? It’s a very good reason to leave the temporary .forts of your catered chalet – the resorts literally hundreds of shops and boutiques serve every possible need, from hypermarkets to high heels. Everything you can possibly need in relation to a skiing holiday can be found in the local shops, and then some. Arc 1950, for example, has dozens of wonderful boutiques for adults and children, and you will certainly find something worth taking home as souvenirs from any of the many gift shops located throughout the resort.
