The 3 Valleys boasts some of the best skiing in the world and is a playground for all abilities and interests. The restaurant and après choices are fantastic too.

Ben Nelson

With 180 lifts, 600 km of skiing on 330 marked pistes, The 3 Valleys in the northern French Alps is the world’s largest connected ski area.

It’s high altitude, snow-sure terrain with 85% of the runs being above 1800m. Unsurprisingly then, Les 3 Vallées is home to Europe’s highest ski resort, Val Thorens, with its highest lift bringing skiers and boarders up to 3,200m.

The ski area is a perfect location for beginners and advanced skiers alike, with a wide range of comfortable and challenging slopes. And for any thrill-seeking skiers, the Grand Couloir run in Courchevel is known to be one of the scariest in Europe.

The 3 Valleys in figures
  • 600 km of ski pistes
  • 339 downhill skiing pistes
  • 163 ski lifts
  • 2,100 snow canons
  • 10,500 hectares of ski
  • 1,512 hectares of pistes
The 3 Valleys Ski Pass

All 8 resorts of The 3 Valleys are accessible with a single lift pass. You could ski all week here and not do the same run twice.

Perfect for beginners

Beginner skiers have 43 green runs and 129 blue runs, plus the new ‘Easy Rider’ signposting makes life even easier if you’re new to the sport. Look out for the pink sign which indicates that the piste is nice and wide with a gradual incline, just what you need as a first-timer finding your feet.

The best après...

Party lovers head to Méribel and Val Thorens where there are a large number of bars to choose from, including the well-known piste-side après venues of the Rond Point in Méribel and the Folie Douce in Val Thorens. For something a little quieter, head to the typical French villages of St Martin de Belleville or Les Allues, where you'll find pretty bars and restaurants.
