Ski Village (Arc 1950):
The Canadian resort developer Intrawest began creating the ski village “Arc 1950” in 2003. (They also built ski resorts in Whistler, Mont Tremblant, Keystone etc.) The Savoyan architecture of the village is a positive move away from the bleak, concrete blocks of earlier French ski developments and will positively surprise the guest by its old, traditional style of cobblestones and traffic-free village life. It offers boutiques, bars, a supermarket, bakery and restaurants within walking distance. Further the ski hire, ski school, lift pass office and nursery are also at your door-step.
Only a few minutes walk away there is free access to a large, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pool. The village offers a “Deep Nature Spa” complex with wellness and beauty parlour (payable locally).
