The Three Valleys is without doubt the largest and finest linked ski area in the world. The area is naturally blessed with good snow falls and, along with 2,383 snow cannons, skiing is virtually assured from Christmas through to the beginning of May.
The ski area is truly inexhaustible and with 600+km of pistes in the Three Valleys (150km in Méribel and 150km in Courchevel), there is something for every standard of skier. The valleys are superbly linked, with Val Thorens under an hour away from Méribel and Courchevel even closer. So whether you are looking for beautifully groomed pistes, bumps, steeps, or out of the way off-piste runs you will find it in the Trois Vallées.
In Méribel, try the Ladies Olympic Downhill, or the exhilarating runs from the top of Saulire all the way down to Méribel, a vertical drop of 1,300 metres. Then there is Mont Vallon, with its two fabulous sweeping red runs and amazingly varied off-piste.
Courchevel has miles of wonderful cruising runs, beautiful pistes through the trees to Le Praz and La Tania, the gentle runs of 1600, as well as the Saulire Couloirs, Suisse and Chanrossa, which will challenge even the most expert skier.
The Vallée des Belleville offers some excitingly different terrain. On La Masse and in the Fourth Valley there are some great runs both on and off piste. Click here for piste maps of The Three Valleys.
Snowboarders – Boarding is very popular in the 3 Valleys and is very well catered for, with many board parks and huge amounts of off piste.
