Resort information from the Crystal web site:

Renowned for everything from wooded beginner runs to high-altitude skiing, variety is behind the enduring popularity of Les Arcs. Linked with La Plagne to create the Paradiski area, its varied villages offer access to 425km of piste for all abilities. And with 70% of the skiing at over 2,000m altitude, snow conditions are reliable throughout the season.

Advanced skiers in the mood for something special should head up to the Aiguille Rouge for the exhilarating 2km descent to Villaroger. Alternatively, above Arc 1600 there’s also a snow park ripe for hours of freestyle fun.
