Should you wish to know anything else about skiing La Tania and the Three Valleys (and for tips on which runs are truly unmissable!) please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ski Area

The Three Valleys has over 600km of piste consisting of 300 runs and 120km of cross country slopes, all serviced by 200 ski lifts, and an endless variety of mountain top restaurants.

La Tania village itself is served by a gondola and tow lift, giving skiers access to Courchevel, Méribel and the rest of the Three Valleys. From the top of the gondola, there are three beautiful, tree lined runs, (green, blue and red) that wind back down to La Tania, the blue of which is serviced by snow cannons all year round to maintain utmost piste conditions right up until the end of the Easter season. There are, in fact, a plentiful number of snow canons throughout the entire area ensuring you can enjoy skiing late into the season.

Skiing

The surrounding ski area is ideally suited for any standard of skier.

  • If you are just learning to ski, La Tania is ideally equipped for you, with gentle nursery slopes and a free beginners tow lift (Troika) overlooking the idyllic La Tania village.
  • For intermediate skiers, La Tania has unbeatable access to an extensive variety of green, blue and red runs in The Three Valleys ski area.
  • Advanced skiers prepare yourselves! There are 28 black runs throughout ‘Les Trois Vallées’ and an abundance of off-piste to challenge even the most demanding of adrenaline junkies! Courchevel is also home to several couloirs which are renowned as some of the hardest black runs in the world!

Snowboarding

There is plenty of off piste for those not wanting to stick to pisted runs and enough gondolas and chair lifts to make it possible to completely avoid drag lifts. The Three Valleys is also host to seven snowboard parks, three of which are in Courchevel and a plentiful number of snow trails amidst the dense evergreen forests which offer breathtaking views of the mountainsides.

Standard warnings apply to err on the side of caution when venturing off piste as avalanches do occur.
