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, from November to May. The area links four fabulous French resorts - Europe's highest (Val Thorens), the ultimate chalet resort (Méribel), iconic Courchevel and Les Menuires. The skiing more than lives up to the resorts' star billing. For enthusiastic, mileage hungry skiers, 600km of pisted perfection awaits you. The area has more than enough to keep even the most advanced skiers happy with 32 black runs, mogul challenges, chutes and couloirs galore plus vast acres of off piste to explore. Beginners and groups of mixed ability love the Three Valleys as they can all appreciate the area at their own pace and individual level.

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.

  • Courchevel doesn't have to be expensive, there's self catering apartments in great locations and our chalet in 1650.

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 Chalet group.
