Car Park - When arriving by taxi or car, head into the underground carpark underneath the resort. Follow the brown signs to the Refuge du Montagnard and park near the door. The door leads you straight onto the 3rd floor, which is our floor.
To book a car parking space, follow the instructions on the Les Arcs 1950 website http://www.arc1950.com/en/book-a-covered-car-park-in-arc-1950.html
Key collection - To collect the apartment's door keycards (and key codes for the ski lockers), go to Reception on the 5th floor of the Refuge du Montagnard. If Reception is unmanned, go to the Reception of the Hameau du Glacier which is directly opposite and is manned 24 hrs a day.
Timings - The apartment will be available from 4pm. You should leave by 10am on the day of your departure.
SKI PASS OFFICE
The Ski Pass Office is situated directly opposite the front of the Refuge du Montagnard on the right of the Hameau du Glacier.
You can buy any amount of days that you wish and they will also offer blood wagon cover.
You can buy a pass for all the Les Arcs and to cover you in La Plagne.
Again, go to the Les Arcs 1950 website for more details https://en.lesarcs.com/ski-pass.html
When you check in, you will receive key codes for the locker rooms which are on the 1st floor. These have access directly onto the piste. The access is just below where ski school meets so if time is tight and you have not got time to do a chair lift and run down to the village you may wish to take your kit up to the 5th floor hall where you can put your boots on and ski straight out to the ski school meeting point.
