There’s no doubt about it, this is a significant point. The immensity of the 3 Vallées awaits you from Les Menuires. 600 km of slopes and 7 resorts linked together by the summits. A playing field of exceptional quality, the Holy Grail of the French mountains ❄️😍

2. What’s new in La Masse

The secret corner of the ski area is getting a makeover! A little less crowded and all the more enjoyable, the La Masse sector is becoming an unmissable spot for skiing this winter. A new cable car has been installed and it is one the fastest in France. It takes 8 minutes to go from 1,800m to 2,800m, from the foot of La Masse to the summit, do you want to give it a go?

3. High altitude, guaranteed snow, guaranteed skiing

With 85% of the ski area at an altitude of over 1,800 metres, you have every chance of getting good snow for skiing. Powder and light snow... it makes you want to go! And what's more, most of the accommodation is ski in/ski out, so you can put your skis on directly from the foot of your accommodation ⛷

4. Extremely practical resort

In concrete terms, the Les Menuires resort is designed to make your life easier. The vast majority of accommodation is ski in/ski out. You don’t need a car here, leave it for the week and you can reach the various areas with their different atmospheres and styles by the pedestrian paths or via the free shuttle service.

5. Fun areas

As well as the traditional slopes, the Les Menuires resort has three fun areas: the Pixel Area with the snow park and the snowboard cross, as well as the Friendly Natural Park. You can go there to jump on moguls, race with your friends and discover the local fauna for the little ones.

For fans of powder snow and untouched spaces, Liberty Ride is also worth a visit.

6. Slopes for all levels

A large area means a large range of possibilities for the slopes. Beginners and experts alike will find what they are looking for. In the 3 Vallées area, 17% of the slopes are green, 39% blue, 33% red and 11% black. In other words, there are virtually as many easy slopes as there are challenging ones.
