Trois Vallees, France

A Vast and Fantastic Skiing Area Suitable for Everyone

A Vast and Fantastic Skiing Area Suitable for Everyone This superb and vast area provides 600km of excellent skiing ranging from pistes carved out of wooded slopes to fast and exhilarating runs set below glaciers. The Three Valleys has been described as one of the best skiing areas to be found anywhere in the world; little wonder then that much of the 1992 Olympics were staged here.

There are 3 cable cars, 40 gondolas, 68 chair lifts and 87 drag lifts with no shortage of runs for all abilities. The 49 green, 101 blue, 146 red and 28 black runs are more than enough to keep the most ardent enthusiast happy for an entire holiday and have a combined uphill capacity of 243,259 peresons per hour.

From expertly groomed pistes to the deep powder of the runs beneath the glaciers, and gentle beginners slopes around each of the resorts to testing mogul fields, here you will find something for all.

The Three Valleys region comprises a number of resorts. There is the original village of Brides-les-Bains set deep in the valley but served by a long gondola which runs up to Meribel at 1450m. There is the small, but excellent village of La Tania set amongst delightful woodland at 1350m with links to Courcheval 1850m, or the picturesque and "rustic" village of Saint-Martin de Belleville at 1400m with a two-stage high speed chair which links across to Meribel. Then there are the famous mountain resorts of Les Menuires at 1815m, Val Thorens - at 2300m the highest of all, Meribel Mottaret 1700m, and the three villages of Courcheval at 1550m - 1650m - and 1850m. Each resort has its own attractions and appeals, and links in with all the others. And with 40 mountain restaurants there are no shortage of excellent stopping places to visit whilst on a days' skiing expedition.

If you are a very good skier, the black runs beneath the Caron cable car will test you to the limits. If you want a long and punishing run, then try the pistes of Les Suisses and Jean Blanc.

Bars, discos and night life are in abundance. This is the Three Valley region and whilst most of the accommodation is in apartments, there are some excellent small to medium sized hotels, which offer the entire family total comfort and relaxation.

Special Offer: We have teamed up with PV Holidays, leading supplier of French Skiing accommodation to offer a Christmas offer of one night free with every booking.
