Alpine ski resorts – the next big thing in business travel?

Businesses are always looking for new destinations for incentive travel experiences, conferences or team-building exercises. Over the past few years, France’s Alpine resorts have developed into real contenders in this segment of the market.

Catering to corporate clients at Les Arcs

One type of client not often associated with ski resorts is the businessman or woman. However, Alpine resorts such as Les arcs, in France, are actually very well placed to cater to this kind of customer. Les Arcs 1950, the newest village at Les Arcs ski resort, has anticipated this demand with the inclusion of dedicated function and meeting rooms in a number of residential apartment complexes. A large main function room (485m²) may be subdivided into 6 smaller rooms seating between 50 and 280 people, whilst other meeting rooms seat from 45 to 120 individuals. In the summertime, there’s also the option of putting up an outdoors marquee. Your guests will be put up in luxurious five star accommodation (hotels or apartments), with views of either the village, the ski slopes or Mont Blanc itself. Bed and breakfast, half-board and full-board options are all available, and of course, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the village itself, serving local dishes and more international cuisine.

A wide variety of activities tailored to business customers

There are lots of activities that are suitable for corporate clients, whether your event’s focus is on team-building, rewarding co-workers, networking with customers or something else. Naturally, winter sports form a big part of what Les Arcs 1950 has to offer. Your clients or colleagues will get the chance to enjoy snowshoeing, snow mobile rides, tobogganing, dog sledding and more. They’ll also be sure to love the ‘igloo village’, which boasts an igloo bar, an ice cave with ice carvings, a restaurant and space for dancing! After an intense seminar or a long day in the conference hall, who wouldn’t want to relax in a sauna or get a massage? Your guests will be able to do just that thanks to the Deep Nature Spa located at the heart of Les Arcs 1950. Open until 8pm, the spa extends over 1000m². One unique aspect of this facility are the panoramic views of Mont Blanc to be had from some of the treatment rooms.
