Les Arcs – anyone been biking there?
Les arcs is amazing, especially for more natural all mountain riding. It’s plenty technical enough. you can do about 2-3 days on the marked stuff but to get the best riding get a guide. We used rob from cool bus.
I’ve done morzine twice now and after the second visit much preferred les arcs, it’s higher with longer descents and less braking bumps. I’m tempted to return but so many other places to try.
Stayed at chill chalet in bourg which was also very good.
Def go for it.Posted 5 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
awesome like your favourite UK trails but 20 times longer…
also search a bit 🙂
Usual advice from me the resort is only half the story, the rest of the valley is not lifted but awesome riding, solo it’s hard work guiding is great, guiding with a van/trailer is heaven 🙂

I guided in the valley over three years and can safely say it’s an absolutely ENDLESS supply of techy, long, scenic singletrack. The chap I worked for is still finding new trails and he’s lived there for 12 years. You could do a week of using the lift assisted stuff and never ride the same trail twice, then you could ride for another three months and do the same.
It’s awesome, Bourg St Maurice is a lovely quaint town and the transport links are excellent. Have a look at bikevillage.co.uk for a tasterPosted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
We spent a day riding at Les Arcs with White Room, really enjoyed but tbh, I don’t think any of the best riding we did in the area was in the resort. Getting guided around sainte foy, bourg and la rosiere was better. La Thuile just over the border was amazing, best place I’ve ever ridden, almost like they built the place with me in mind.
But to be fair to Les Arcs I doubt we more than scratched the surface and it could be if we’d spent days there I’d be raving about other trails we didn’t ride 😉 And it was still fantastic- just that it was outshone by even more great trails. The riding around there is godly.Posted 5 years ago
