A Beginners Guide To Ski Holidays In Les Arcs

Jul 20, 2008
The winter seasons are best enjoyed curled up in front of the fireplace with a hot beverage (preferable hot chocolate, whipped cream and marshmallows) and the television on watching old movies. However, sometimes this can become boring, therefore, one way to get rid of the winter blues is to go abroad for an active holiday (making the freezing cold weather that much more bearable).

Keeping generally active on a regular basis keeps your body's blood circulating, keeping you warm and maintaining a stable contented mood. One good way of enjoying a winter holiday is to go skiing at one of your favourite destinations. Ski holidays are probably one of the most popular forms of activity holidays, keeping people fit whilst allowing to unwind and relax abroad. One of the most famous ski resorts is Les Arcs in France.

Ski holidays in Les Arcs are so popular because of their multiple terrains that are suitable for skiers of all levels, including absolute beginners looking to go skiing for the first time. Les Arcs was a purpose built resort to reduce the amount of walking and increase ski time. It became more popular for its continuous snowfalls and long challenging runs. Experts enjoy trying out their unpredictable bumpy slopes and off-piste challenges.

For e beginner considering their ski holidays in Les Arcs will need to book their own instructor and gain some experience on the dry slopes before jumping in the deep end. Even though there are a number of simple terrains for beginners to practise on, it is always a good idea to get a good feel of what it would be like to slide down the slopes. Of course, there is a big difference between dry slope skiing and real skiing on snow, as often skiing in the mountains is not as smooth or flat as a dry slope.

The runs in the mountains tend to be filled with deep holes, rocks, bumps and unevenness from previous skiers. These can also form raised surfaces, which could be good for more experienced to practise their jumps. Beginners can take part in the famous Ski Evolutif, which is Les Arcs very own ski school that uses short skis and easy meadow slides to help beginners become accustomed to the skiing method. This method is also good for improving on balance, stability and practise on many nursery slopes.

As well as skiing, beginners could even try their hand at snowboarding, which is an experience that cannot be missed. Originally snowboarding were held for competitions. Now young people prefer to go snowboarding and practise on some of the more challenging ski slopes off cliffs and mountains. Beginners will obviously feel intimidated by this, yet the thrill of trying out snowboarding challenges down nursery slopes is incomparable. Les Arcs offers a wide variety of displays and skiing opportunities, making it a top choice for skiing holidays.

Part of the skiing experience in Les Arcs is about enjoying the mountain scenery, as well sampling the diverse terrains and varying hills, beginners can enjoy the modern nightlife culture and visit the local markets. Locals are generally very friendly and offer great deals on locally produced foods.
