La Masse is fabulous! Along with the Mont de la Chambre mountainside, it makes up the ski area of Les Menuires. It’s a great place for skiing in the morning sun, but that’s not all! Overview of this must-do sector of the 3 Vallées ski area 😎


Big news in La Masse! This winter, a brand new, ultra-fast gondola lift looks set to bring a few changes when it comes to reaching the most beautiful summits of the 3 Vallées. From the bottom to the tip of La Masse, the trip will take you just 8 minutes, which makes it one of the fastest gondola lifts in France.

The new Pointe de la Masse gondola lift will enable many more people to reach the top of the mountain, even though the Masse 1 gondola remains in place to make life easier for novice skiers.

The ski area’s photo spot

You may recognise it if you’ve already been in the area. The ibex of La Masse is something of an emblem for the ski area and regularly has its photo taken. Watching over the valley from the top of La Masse, it is happy to share the panoramic view with its visitors 😉
