• Arc 1950 Le Village in the French Alps is expanding fast, with two new appartment blocks, a deluxe spa, a clutch of new restaurants, snack bars, creperies, fashion shops and a new medical centre. Phew!

Breckenridge is building a new Peak 8 summit high-speed quad, which will be the highest chairlift in North America (reaching 12,840ft). It will serve 400 acres of double-black terrain, previously only accessible with a 45 minute hike.
