Although there are some fabulous and glitzy resorts across Europe, not everybody wants to rub shoulders with the rich and famous on their ski weekends, and for those who like great value during their winter sports trip Les Menuires is a great option.

At a height of 1,815 metres in the famous Three Valleys, Les Menuires has a great skiing area designed so that everyone, from beginners to experts, can make the most of their ski weekends.

In addition, they will not have to break the bank to do so, as the accommodation, restaurants, bars and shops all offer excellent value.

The advice site If You Ski described Les Menuiers as a "fabulous" resort for ski holidays, with the major attractions being residences on the piste, shops sheltered in the shopping arcades, and different quarters linked with footpaths and mechanical lifts.

"Les Menuires, everything has been thought out to simplify life for young and old. It remains a largely French venue that is becoming a more and more attractive destination. Beginners are very well catered for and the resort is certainly amongst the cheapest in the Three Valleys," the source explained.

It noted that the skiing will suit people of all ages and abilities, with particular emphasis being placed on La Masse, which offers expert skiers some great black runs and off-piste opportunities.

There are also some good restaurants and bars which offer tasty food and drink at reasonable prices, both in the resort village and on the slopes, giving people plenty of low-cost options.

However, the quality of the skiing is arguably the main reason why people head to Les Menuires, as Meribel and the rest of the Three Valleys are effectively on the doorstep, offering a superb variety of slopes.

"Les Menuires provides a great range of skiing both around the resort itself and on neighbouring slopes. To suit this overwhelming landscape, Les Menuires has developed a high-standing accommodation programme over the past few years, with traditional chalets out of wood and stone," the source explained.

Although in the past Les Menuires may have been overlooked by people on the hunt for ski destinations, the resort has a plethora of attractions, with 48 restaurants, 39 ski lifts and 62 trails.

Best of all, the resort has both advanced and beginner slopes, with the quality of the former highlighted by the fact that the resort held the men's slalom alpine skiing event at the 1992 Winter Olympics.

People who like to try their hand on different parts of the mountain are also very well catered for, as Les Menuires' slopes are connected to more than 600 km of slopes in the Three Valleys, making it a part of the largest ski area on the planet.

As the resort is also situated at an altitude of 1,850m, people heading on ski weekends to the area can be fairly sure that snow conditions be excellent, while those in search of super high altitude can make the short journey to Val Thorens – the highest ski resort in Europe.

When people step off the slopes, there are also plenty of apres ski activities that can suit people of all ages and abilities, with the recent awarding of a "Family Plus" honour testament to this.

There are two heated swimming pools - one in the main village and one in the sports and wellbeing complex, as well as a fitness room, massage and spa facilities and traditional sports options such as squash, badminton, table tennis, volleyball and many others.

In addition, there is a tobogganing piste, snowscooters, quads and buggies if people are in search of something a little more adventurous.

One thing is for sure – people in Les Menuires will be able to enjoy everything you would expect from thrilling ski weekends, without having to break the bank to do so.
