Welcome to Trois Vallées

Trois Vallées

The ski-holiday destination of Le Trois Vallées is the largest ski area in the world and is made up from the linked valleys of Courcheval, Meribel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens. Courcheval actually consists of three resorts named after their heights; Courcheval 1850 and 1650 are the most exclusive and expensive in the Trois Vallées.

Meribel is the middle valley and is the most popular option with families on holiday; the slopes here are easier to navigate. It was founded by the British, and English is spoken everywhere. Val Thorens has the highest skiing slopes but it is an ugly resort with large grey apartment blocks providing the background; however it is the favoured holiday destination of many German tourists.

The combined ski area comprising the Three Valleys is excellent for beginners and experts alike. There is also a good variety of off-piste skiing when the conditions are right.
