      The skilled skiers' dream come true!

      Of course every ambitioned skier dreams of visiting the largest ski resort in the world – „Les Trois Vallées”. 250 km of intermediate trails (red) amounting to 42% of the entire resort make sure that the intermediate skier can spend several days on adequate slopes. Especially nice are the intermediate descents from the 3101 m high “Glacier de Peclet” to Val Thorens as well as nearly all the descents to the base in Méribel. The slopes around Courchevel might be too easy for intermediate skiers. We especially recommend intermediate skiers the middle one of the three valleys around Méribel. If experienced with difficult runs also the black runs in “Les 3 Vallées “can be skied on risk free. We recommend the difficult black run Tétras from the 2274 m high “Col De La Loze” to Méribel Altiport (1700m). For those who want a truly breathtaking extraordinary view have a look at the north of the Mont Blanc massif from 2738m high Saulire (between Courchevel and Méribel).

      Of course also experts will find suitable slopes among the 600 km of skiable terrain. We recommend the very skilled skier to try one of the numerous round trips. Those can be calculated on www.les3vallees.com/uk/012_plan.html. A total of 150 km of difficult trails (25%) can be found in Les Trois Vallees. No other ski resort features as many. Very nice are the parallel running trails Combe de Caron and Cristaux descending from the 3130m high Mont Brequin in the sub area Val Thorens as well as the the two slopes Léo Lacroix and Étélé in the subarea Menuires. In the villages Val Thorens and Méribel permanent slalom racing circuits can be found: the “Stades de Slalom”.
