"Ski-universe", "Largest integrated skiing area in the world", "Powder paradise"; a small selection of the description used to define the ski region of Les Trois Valées. This extensive ski region, located in Savoie, covers over 600 km of pistes and offers about 200 ski lifts. Due to its high altitude (3200 meters) the ski region is snow certain; from the beginning of May this area is open. Furthermore, also the lifts located on a lower altitude stay open, even during bad weather conditions.
The different villages in the Trois Vallées offer an appropriate accomodation for every budget. There is i.e. the popular Val Thorens, the small-scale and quiet La Tania, the chic Courchevel, the cheaper Les Menuires and the traditional Méribel.
In the Les Trois Vallées ski area you'll also find the largest cable car in the world, which takes you from Courchevel to Le Saulire, to an altitude of 2738 meters. Here you'll mostly find red and black runs. In the funpark there are half-pipes and quarter-pipes for snowboarders and there are plenty of possibilities for off-piste skiing.

The village of Les Menuires has completely been renovated for the winter games of 1992.

Most lifts go to the Mont de la Chambre and the 3 Marches, from where you can discover the rest of the Trois Vallées. Méribel and Val Thorens are quickly reached from Les Menuires. On the snow-certain north-west slope of the Point de la Masse (2804 meters) there are some very nice and steep slopes for advanced skiers. For snowboarders there is a fun park with half pipes reaching 110 and 400 meters with quarters, tables and moguls.
