Nestled in the Haute-Tarentaise in Savoie, Les Arcs ski resort was founded in 1968 thanks to the meeting between Robert Blanc, a mountain enthusiast, and Roger Godino, a polytechnicien from the valley.

A true architectural land, the resort bears witness to the meeting between tradition and modernism, where the passion for the mountains and the outdoors is paramount.

In winter, Les Arcs Film Festival is a program of nearly 120 films from Europe in competition and the presence of guests of honor from the film industry. And in April, the Ski2Bike event celebrates the transition from winter to spring by organising a ski and bike relay race.
Committed to sustainable development, the resort of Les Arcs is implementing actions to reduce its ecological impact. Every year, it organises the "Le Grand Nettoyage" event to raise awareness of waste collection after the winter season. In addition, it has launched the Cap Energie programme, which is committed to building more eco-responsible buildings by reducing their energy impact.
