As one of the largest ski areas in the world, the Three Valleys provides high altitude, world-class skiing, as well as a guarantee of great snow all season long, from November to May. The area links four fabulous French resorts - Europe's highest (Val Thorens), the ultimate chalet resort (Méribel), iconic Courchevel and New for winter 2017/18 Les Menuires

The skiing more than lives up to the resorts' star billing. Best of all for enthusiastic, mileage-hungry intermediate skiers, with 600km of piste perfection awaiting you, the area has more than enough to keep the most advanced skiers and boarders happy too. There are over 30 black runs to choose from, mogul challenges, cutes and couloirs galore, plus vast acres of off-piste to explore after each fresh snowfall.

There’s an air of change in Les Menuires. Whilst the original, purpose built buildings constructed in the 60s and 70s remain one of the resort’s distinguishing features, newer and attractive Savoyard style properties in the surrounding suburbs have helped to soften Les Menuires’ once harsh exterior.
