The Trois Vallees is simply amazing in the amount and range of skiing it has to offer. One of the toughest choices you will have is deciding which part of this vast area to go to. La Tania has its own nursery slopes and some of the tree-lined runs around the village will interest more advanced skiers. Above the tree-line, in Courchevel and Meribel, the skiing domain opens up, with a wide array of challenges for all levels of skier. Beyond Meribel the domain extends to cover Les Menuires and Val Thorens. If you think you might run out of trails, think again.
In addition to the seeming endless options, the snow is usually great and there are some magnificent views to see, at times all of the Alps seem to be laid before you as you slip down the slopes.
If being on the piste isn't enough for you, then get yourself a guide and head for one of the powder stashes, or the steeps, or the couloirs.
The well-groomed slopes and gentle approaches back to the areas resorts make them excellent training grounds for beginners to ply their new trade. The more adventurous snowboarders can really enjoy the huge number of wide and challenging pistes and vast number of adrenaline off piste areas to explore (Guide needed). Snowboarding is cool and if you are in the Trois Vallees it is hard to be cooler!
There are a number of different ski schools to choose from, all of which offer regular lessons, either for individuals or as part of a group. The schools cater for all levels of skier and snowboarder alike and pre booking is highly recommended especially during peak holiday dates. There are also children's ski facilities and a kindergarten.
