Sledging down the slopes in Brides Les Bains`


To ensure great snow throughout the whole of the Three Valleys, there are over 2000 snow cannons. With 170 lifts, most of which are modern chairlifts and gondolas, this ensures efficient ski weekend skiing around the 600kms of the Three Valleys ski area. With the vast majority of the slopes above 1800m, there is a pretty good guarantee of snow around the 3 Valley’s area especially in Val Thorens which is the highest ski resort in Europe. Courchevel is also known for holding its snow extremely well throughout the season with most of its slopes being mainly North facing.

With Meribel Chaudanne likely to be the starting and finishing point of your skiing each day it would probably be useful to know a bit more about it. The slopes up high in Meribel are great, especially in the morning if you are up early enough to get the first tracks on those freshly groomed pistes a great example of this is the red run ‘Eterlou’ just off of the Plan de l’Homme chairlift which is a beauty first thing. In the late afternoon though it does tend to get a bit slushier the closer you get to Chaudanne and it is also not always possible to ski down to the Les Allues or Raffort stations on the Olympe gondola. Whatever the skiing is like down low will more than be made up for up higher though so fear not!
