Les Trois Vallées or The Three Valleys is the largest ski domain in the world with 600km of interconnected pistes serviced by more than 180 ski lifts.
Les Trois Vallées not only has a diverse ski offering, but it comprises an eclectic array of resorts including some of the most popular ski spots on the planet such as Méribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens.
A vast ski domain
Sustainability and environmental impact are of great interest to the region. All snow cannons in the valley are ultra-modern. The snow produced is UV filtered as a means of eliminating bacterial and microbial risks. The ski lifts have undergone a renewal in the past fifteen years. Many have been replaced by more efficient models and reduced in total number to improve the visual impact on the landscape.
Satellite villages are at various altitudes and are dispersed among in the mountains, making some of the villages less convenient if skiing is a priority. The villages that are located farther down the mountain are connected by free shuttle buses and ski lifts in an effort to connect all the villages in the region.
Given the importance placed on respect for the environment, the villages tend not to attract wild partygoers and teenage visitors. There are a few bars and restaurants and après-ski activities in some villages, but largely the region draws families and people looking for a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the outdoors and skiing slopes. The ambience of the village reflects just that. Meribel and Courchevel tend to be the most frequented resorts by cosmopolitan jet setters. These are villages to be enjoyed by walking through the streets or dining in one of the 60 restaurants (some of which are Michelin starred).
Les Trois Vallées Selected.
“Les Trois Vallées is vast and each satellite village offers a drastically different culture. Before purchasing, do your research and decide what you are looking for, whether it is après-ski or a relaxing sports resort. This way, you can be sure to choose the right area for you.”
