Skiing at Les Arcs, French Alps

By Leroy from UK - Last Easter some friends and I went on a once in a lifetime skiing holiday in France. We went to a beautiful resort in the French Alps called Les Arcs. It was the birthplace of snowboarding! Our days were active and full as we would get up at 8 in the morning and one of us would pop down to the bakery to get us French sticks and croissants for breakfast.

We would then be out the villa for 9 ready to get on the ski slopes! At around 11 we would have a hot chocolate break and then finally have lunch at 2ish. We would return to our villa every day at 5 and then just chill! On the slops we had a fantastic time bombing down slopes or going over little jumps and bumps. It is the perfect vacation idea for any other adrenaline lovers like me and I would love to do it again next year if I could!
