La Tania (France)

Based on 6 reviews

La Tania in short

  • Height: 1400 metres
  • Pleasant, pedestrian ski resort
  • Attractive setting
  • Beginner's slope in resort centre

La Tania was pretty much purpose-built to house journalists and athletes during the 1992 Winter Olympics and care was taken to give this ski resort a cosy feel. Nowadays, it's a popular alternative for skiers and snowboarders who want access to the world-famous slopes of Courchevel and Les Trois Vallées without the glam and the price tags that go along with them.

Peaceful La Tania is located just off the main road connecting the ski resorts of Méribel and Le Praz/Courchevel 1300. The newest ski resort in Les Trois Vallées, this pedestrian village consists primarily of wooden apartments and chalets in a pretty, wooded environment which creates a very charming atmosphere. La Tania itself has two practice ski slopes and some challenging valley downhill runs. However, the real draw is the easy access to the ski slopes of the Trois Vallées ski area, largest linked ski area in the world, via connections to Méribel and Courchevel. Other winter sports activities such as cross-country skiing and hiking are possible in La Tania too with many different options available. La Tania is less than a 2-hour drive from Chambéry Airport.

Skiing in the Three Valleys

A tranquil village with easy access to winding green and blue slopes, La Tania is popular with intermediate skiers as well as families. From an expert skier's point of view La Tania is quite small, although it does have limited off-piste terrain and one or two black slopes. That being said, you're not exactly suffering: advanced and expert skiers who venture further afield have the whole Trois Vallées ski area at their disposition, including the resorts of Courchevel, Méribel, Brides Les Bains, Saint Martin De Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens and Orelle. Coming back to La Tania at the end of the ski day, you'll pass through the pretty wooded slopes of Folyères, Plan Fontaine and Moretta Blanche. This is a good area to spend time in when it's snowing as the trees will provide some reprieve. Many of the slopes at La Tania also have snow cannons in case the snow cover is lacking.

Off the slopes in and around La Tania

The region surrounding Courchevel and La Tania has several dozen kilometres of cross-country skiing and winter hiking trails. You can also find non-skiing activities like dogsledding and yoga. Neighbouring Courchevel has the full range of usual winter activities, including tobogganing, paragliding, ice skating and even learning to drive a snow cat. La Tania is a compact ski resort with only a few bars and a couple of nice restaurants serving good food so it's not the place for lively après-ski. If you want to stay up all night, you'll have to visit the neighbouring resorts of Courchevel and Méribel.
