In season, 2018/19, Arpette had the somewhat dubious distinction of being the busiest lift in La Plagne. Along with the Bergerie out of Plagne Soleil, this lift almost always suffers from long queues – though it’s easy to understand why. Just like Bergerie, this lift forms a main arterial link between different sectors of La Plagne – in this case, it’s the primary link from the main areas over to Montchavin and Les Arcs. A new lift is planned from the foot of Inversens up to the top of the Crozats which will help alleviate the load on this chair but, until it’s built, the only realistic route for most riders wanting to go to the Montchavin sector will remain the Arpette lift. From the top, riders can choose between heading back to base on the Fun Slope, Dunes, Arpette or Laines pistes. Alternatively, you can ride down the other side on the short Replat blue to access the Montchavin sector. The Arpette chair also gives access to the new Ange beginner area, served a magic carpet of the same name. The views at the top over Les Arcs, the Isère valley and Mont Blanc are spectacular.
