Overview of Les Menuires

Les Menuires offers a fantastic base for a week exploring the world’s largest ski area, the 600km of skiable runs in the Three Valleys. With a foundation of purpose-built accommodation, more recent developments have led to more picturesque and traditional mountain architecture in the 8 micro-villages of Les Menuires.

Unlike many little sister resorts, Les Menuires is a veritable Cinderella with features that many skiers look for – ski-in/ski-out accommodation, high altitude (1850m) and connected to a huge ski area. It certainly shouldn’t be overlooked as a potential for your next ski holiday, especially if you’re self-catering.

        The Trois Vallees is arguably one of the largest and most famous linked ski areas in the world. The Les Menuires local pass is ok for first time beginners or for those that do not want to venture too far. To make the most of the terrain a full area lift pass is available from each resort that covers all three valleys. Due to the great links between resorts and a variety of runs connecting each, anyone from intermediate ability and above will benefit from the full area lift pass which will allow them enjoy and explore a world class ski area.

        • Les Menuires offers a great cheaper way for beginners to get a first taste of skiing in the Three Valleys, with four free lifts accessing the beginner area, and a local pass for those just progressing off the nursery slopes.
        • For intermediates there are 44 blue and 22 red runs just in the Les Menuires area, let alone the rest of the Three Valleys. When the snow is good, the whole mountainside from Roc de Fer (2290m) above St Martin, to Col de la Chambre (2850m) above Les Menuires is a great place to head for blue and easy red pistes.
        • For advanced skiers, most thrills in Les Menuires will be found off-piste. For the best expert runs we recommend exploring the massive ski area you have access to in the whole 3 valleys area – Courchevel being just a 90 minute ski away.
