Resorts in the French Alps
Courchevel is part of the vast Three Valleys ski area, so there’s enough varied terrain within reach to keep all ability levels happy for weeks.
Whether you’re trying snowsports for the first time, looking to ride the superpipe used in the Winter X-Games Europe, or just hoping to perfect your off-piste riding, Tignes has something to offer everyone.
Val Thorens lies at the top of one of the valleys, above Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville. Generally more suited to beginner and intermediate skiing, advanced skiers have the whole of the Three Valleys at their ski tips.
Located between mighty Val Thorens and pretty St Martin-de-Belleville, and with excellent links to the Méribel Valley, Les Menuires acts as a fantastic gateway to some of the Three Valleys’ highest peaks and most varied terrain.
Whatever your ski or snowboard level, Les Arcs is an excellent resort – home to some of the best ski terrain in the Alps. It also has one of the easiest and cheapest train-to-resort links - via the funicular that runs from Bourg-St-Maurice to Arc 1600.
If you want to glam it up and be seen in one of the trendiest locations in the Alps then Val d'Isère could definitely be a resort for you.
With its excellent slope grooming and pretty chalet-style accommodation Méribel is one of the most popular resorts for English-speaking skiers.
