Three Valleys ski area

The 8 ski resorts of the Three Valleys join collectively to represent the largest ski area in the world.

As one of the largest ski areas in the world, the Three Valleys provides high altitude, world-class skiing with 85% of the ski area above 1,800 metres and a guarantee of great snow all season long. The area links four fabulous French resorts - Europe's highest Val Thorens, the ultimate chalet resort Méribel, iconic Courchevel and modern Les Menuires. The skiing more than lives up to the resorts' star billing and for you enthusiastic, mileage hungry skiers, a whopping 600 kilometers of pisted perfection awaits you. 

Ski holidays in the Three Valleys ski area

Groups of mixed ability love the Three Valleys as you can appreciate the area at your own pace and individual level - not to mention the breath taking panoramic views you'll see along the way. For quality time with your family, we'd recommend visiting the Friendly Natural Park in Les Menuires to learn more about the mountains and it's wildlife whilst participating in a fun range of ski games. On the other hand, if you're a thrill seeker, push your limits with the vertiginious couloir slope at Meribel's Vertical Xperience which has a 37° gradient. There are also many opportunities to have fun off of the slopes - ice skate in Courchevel, soar across Val Thrones on a zipline or explore the whole of the Three Valleys by toboggan.

What We Say
  • La Masse (accessible via Les Menuires) is our hidden gem of the Three Valleys with 360º panoramic views over the Alps.

  • Staying in Méribel Mottaret can help beat the lift queues plus Mont Vallon can be your own private red piste if you get the timing right.

What You say
  • Courchevel 1650 is a great resort and one to keep - less glamorous and perhaps therefore less busy but a gem. The luge evening run was a great activity and thanks to our Rep for sorting this for our group.

    Courchevel, A Robson
