The Ski and Snowboard Short Break Specialist

Arêches-Beaufort – a special place for a short ski holiday

At the heart of the Beaufortain area of the Savoie, Arêches-Beaufort is a charming traditional ski village, with a range of ski runs meandering through the forests that pass beside beautiful wooden chalets, overlooked by Mont Blanc.

The piste map only tells half the story; a magnet for ‘local powder heads in the know’, Arêches-Beaufort prides itself on its accessible back country off-piste terrain. It has the reputation of being the ultimate secret spot, and a great place whether for those venturing off-piste for the first time, or for more experienced powder junkies.

Arêches-Beaufort – Key Facts:

  • 50km of beautiful skiing & snowboarding
  • Ski area between 1050-2350m altitude
  • Stunning natural scenery
  • Very accessible off-piste
  • Introduction to ski touring available

With a transfer time from Geneva of 2 hours it’s a bit further than some other resorts, but this location offers the ideal opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy some unspoilt authenticity with plenty of opportunity to try something a little different.

Traditional Mountain Charm for a Genuine Mountain Experience

Situated at the head of a valley, at an altitude of 1100m, the eco-responsible resort of Arêches-Beaufort offers an exceptional snow fall record – one of the best in the Alps – meaning you can ski in stunning natural surroundings from just before Christmas right through to April.

With high altutide skiing, an abundance of accessible off-piste terrain, and options for a combined vertical drop in excess of 1000m, this is a small resort with plenty on offer for skiers of all abilities.

Yet Arêches-Beaufort offers so much more than just piste skiing. It also offers the rare opportunity to experience ski touring within a safe environment, with marked trails rising up above the resort.

If you want a genuine mountain experience from your short break ski holiday, Arêches-Beaufort might just be the perfect ski resort for you.
