Based on 45 reviews

Les Trois Vallées in short

  • Height: 1300 - 3200 metres
  • Uncrowded, endless ski slopes
  • Skiing until May
  • High tech ski lift systems

The Trois Vallées ski area is nestled in the heart of the Savoy region in the Northern French Alps. As the name suggests, the ski resorts of Les Trois Vallées are divided across three valleys. It's the largest linked ski area in the world, with 600km of ski slopes shared by 8 ski resorts: Courchevel, La Tania, Brides Les Bains, Méribel, Orelle, Les Menuires, Val Thorens and Saint Martin De Belleville! Such a versatile offer is hard to find elsewhere in the Alps. The Three Valleys ski area has more than 200 ski lifts and over 1200 snow cannons and you can ski on the powder snow in the skiing paradise of the Three Valleys until May. From every ski resort, lifts will take you up to high altitudes and some fantastic skiing and snowboarding in no time at all. Every skier and snowboarder, regardless of their budget and/or level, will find their ideal ski resort in Les Trois Vallées.

Snow is pretty much guaranteed in the vast Three Valleys ski area due to the high altitudes - 80% of the ski slopes are located higher than 1800m above sea level and the highest slopes are located at 3200m altitude. However, the best snow can be found on the slopes of Courchevel, as most of the slopes are north-facing. The ski slopes in the Three Valleys ski area are always immaculately groomed, even after heavy snowfalls. The lift system is ultra-modern and long queues at the ski lifts are rare - only to be seen during the highest peaks of the ski season. The Three Valleys ski area is so vast that you sometimes have the impression you are skiing on private ski slopes as there seems to be no-one else around! There are some fantastic facilities for snowboarders with some world-class snow parks, and you can get Michelin-starred views of the Mont Blanc and surrounding French Alps from the Cime Caron in Val Thorens. The Three Valleys is less than 2 hours from Lyon Airport, making it easy to reach from the UK.
