February is a popular time to ski. The snow is already deep in resort, the days are getting longer and the temperatures are typically a bit warmer than January. The UK half-term weeks generally coincide with similar European school holidays, so Les Arcs lay on plenty of additional amusements both on- and off-piste to keep everyone entertained.
In Les Arcs, the ski lifts stay open longer as the season progresses and the evenings get longer and lighter. From Saturday, February 9th, you spend even longer out on the pistes as the majority of gondolas, chairs and buttons continue working for an extra 20 minutes every day. It is, therefore, possible to do your final runs in most sectors after 17:00, giving you an even greater appetite for tartiflette and après ski drinks.
When you are not shredding the slopes, however, there are numerous large- and small-scale events happening in the villages. February may be a have fewer days than the other months but punches above its weight with extra-curricular activities. Here is some of what’s happening in Les Arcs this month.
