Les Arcs MTB Videos

Les Arcs is split across a number of different villages collectively known as the Paradiski area. Bourg-Saint-Maurice sits at an altitude of 850 m. Arc 1600 is directly above Bourg, then as you head south from here, you hit Arc 1800 followed by Peisey, Vallandry and Les Coches. Arc 1950 and 2000 are located in the next valley to the east. In the summer Bourg-Saint-Maurice is by far the busiest town and there's always something going on for bikers.

The bike park is easily accessible from Bourge-Saint-Maurice and possibly the best area is just up the funicular at Arc 1600. Highlights are the super flowy blue track that you can pedal flat out and a black run that starts with a nice set of jumps and gets more technical through the trees.

Les Arcs also has loads of XC/Enduro trails which link the villages. Don't miss the 30 km run from top of the Transarc cable car. The run descends over 1700 m over varied terrain from high mountain rocky tracks to alpine meadow traverses and flowy singletrack through the trees.
