A few words about the 3 Valleys

La Croix des Verdons, montagne emblématique des stations de Courchevel et de Meribel.
Sur les deux versants, de nombreux couloirs très pentus sont assez rapidement accessibles, mais réservés aux skieurs expérimentés: Un petit paradis pour freerider.

With more than 500 km of marked and regularly maintained pistes, 180 ski lifts that can move 260,000 people per hour, The 3 Valleys is the largest interconnected ski area in the world.

Even more than these impressive figures, what makes The 3 Valleys an incomparable ski area is:

  • A modern network of lifts: Even during the school holidays, there’s rarely more than 10 minutes of waiting at the busiest lifts. On the flip side, the pistes can become crowded
  • Fast and easy connections between different areas of the ski area: Except when you need to take a gondola or a cable car, you never need to remove your skis or push over flat ground to reach any point of the ski area.
  • The pistes are all well signposted and well maintained, and with more than 2000 artificial snow canons, The 3 Valleys resorts are as snow-sure as anywhere in the Alps.

SKIPROGRESSION is present in the following ski resorts of the 3 Valleys:

La Tania seen through the trees

La Tania 1400m

The forest is ubiquitous in La Tania and its greatest wealth:
It preserves the quality of the snow, protects it from the wind, guarantees good visibility whatever the weather and brings an incomparable charm to the small resort.

The pass of Fruit in winter

Meribel

The Col du Fruit, which separates the valleys of Meribel (right) and Courchevel (left). Very nice off-piste on both sides but beware:
Avalanche risks are often very high.

Face of a smiling skier in the valley of Val Thorens

Val Thorens 2300m

First tracks in the unnamed combe in Val Thorens. Spring snow at Christmas. What to have a smile!
The route is very beautiful, little known as its name suggests, but the risk of straying towards cliffs is very important if you do not know the area perfectly.
