Skiing the 3 Valleys (Les Trois Vallées)
The Trois Vallées covering Courchevel, Méribel and Val Thorens needs little introduction. It is one of the world's greatest ski areas, with over 600km of marked pistes and 200 ski lifts. The 1230 snow cannons, including snow cannons installed on the lower half of the Folyères run into La Tania, ensure snow cover is maintained to optimal conditions throughout the season.

Given the enormous size of this area and variety of piste, there is something for everyone from the perfectly groomed green runs for the absolute beginner to off piste for the expert. There is a Family park in Courchevel 1850 which has something for everyone to include a variety of rails, kickers, and a ski cross course. Beginners have the use of a free draglift on La Tania's nursery slope where they can learn the basic techniques and there are a number of easy blue runs above Courchevel for later in the week.
