RESORT INFO

Why Les Menuires in Les 3 Vallées?

  • Fantastic position within the 3 Valleys ski area.
  • Great mixture of terrain for all abilities.
  • One of the more affordable ski resorts within Les 3 Vallées.
  • Welcoming resort, good for families.

The purpose-built ski resort of Les Menuires is situated at 1850m in the Belleville Valley within Les 3 Vallées ski area - in complete contrast with the old stone farming village of Saint Martin de Belleville below and the snow-sure resort of Val Thorens perched above. Sitting on the west facing slope of the valley, Les Menuires is lucky enough to get the sun all day long.

Once known for its controversial urban style, the architecture of Les Menuires has undergone extensive renewal in recent years to make it a recommended place for sport enthusiasts as well as for families. The original high-rise feel to the La Croisette, Preyerand and Brelin areas has been softened by the development of the Les Bruyères and Reberty areas with more chalets and quality ski residences made from local wood and stone, creating a true Savoyard feel.

Thanks to the quality of the welcome guests receive and its open arms to children and families as well as the attention to detail and the resort’s traditional French atmosphere, Les Menuires has definitely built itself a solid reputation of friendliness and hospitality. Les Menuires has been awarded the ‘Family Plus’ label for many years now – guaranteeing successful family ski holidays. Les Menuires is also one of the more affordable ski resorts of the 3 Valleys ski area, not only in terms of the accommodation cost but also in-resort prices and dining out.

The overall resort of Les Menuires is quite long and spread out, slowly winding itself up the mountainside with different areas along the way: Preyerand, Brelin, La Croisette, La Sapinière, Reberty 1850, Reberty 2000, Les Fontanettes and Les Bruyères – all of which are linked by free resort shuttle buses or by the slopes.

A bit of history….did you know?
During the 1950s SEATM (Service of the Study and Development of Mountain Tourism) was created by the local authorities to create the ski resort of Courchevel. Due to its great success, in the 1960s the mayor of Saint Martin de Belleville decided to follow suit and create a society with the plan to create 100 000 beds divided between the two main resorts of Les Menuires and Val Thorens plus five satellite resorts.
In 1964 the first three drag lifts were installed. In 1967 the first accommodation residences in the Croisette area were opened as well as the second stage of the La Masse cable car. In 1969 the tourist office was created together with Les Menuires first hotel and the west side of the mountain was equipped with ski lifts. 1973 saw the first stage of the impressive 3 Valleys ski area, with the Allamands drag lift linking Les Menuires to Meribel, at the same time that the nearby resort of Val Thorens was starting to be developed. Up to the early 80s there was an intense period of development in Les Menuires and Val Thorens. The initial plans were changed along the way with the main objectives being controlled development and preservation of the environment. The number of beds was scaled right down to 26,000 in Les Menuires and 20,000 for Val Thorens, the idea of satellite resorts was scrapped and instead the traditional village of Saint Martin de Belleville was created with 1200 beds. In the end 47,000 beds were created instead of the initially planned 100 000.

Les Menuires offers a good range of 3 Star, 3 Star Superior, 4 Star and 4 Star Luxury self-catering ski apartments sleeping up to 14 people plus one 4 Star ski hotel. All Ski Collection’s featured accommodation in Les Menuires offers door-step skiing and some are even ski-in/ski-out. Many also benefit from added facilities such as a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, fitness room and spa treatments.

Ski Collection also features self-catering ski apartments and hotels in other 3 Valley ski resorts: Val Thorens, Meribel, Meribel-Mottaret, Courchevel and Courchevel Moriond - Please see our resort list for full details.

SKI INFO

Les Menuires is part of Les 3 Vallées ski area that many skiers quite rightly regard as the greatest of intermediate ski playgrounds in the world. This massive lift-linked ski area is formed with the neighbouring resorts of Val Thorens, Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania.

The 3 Vallées ski area has slopes of all extremes. On the edge of the traditional wide ski runs, the eastern side of the 3 Vallées ski area is waiting to be discovered: in the Saint-Bon Valley and on the borders of the Courchevel ski area you will find sunny Moriond. The Saint Bon Valley offers some of the most beautiful wooded sectors of the 3 Vallées. The western side of the 3 Vallées is represented by the Belleville Valley and at the top of the valley sits the imposing resort of Val Thorens and its circle of glaciers and peaks that reach over 3000m.

Great skiing can be had from the very beginning of the season in the 3 Vallées and there is something for everyone no matter your style or ability.

So what makes Les 3 Vallées so snow-sure?
Well apart from the superb quality of snow Les 3 Vallées is blessed with each winter, the skiing altitude of Les 3 Vallées ski area ranges from 1300m to 3230m – meaning that 85% is located above 1800m. In total you will find 25 accessible summits, 10 of which are above 2500m. And that’s before we have even talked about the 2000+ snow cannons that cover 1/3 of the whole ski area or the 80 piste grooming machines that beaver away at night to keep the ski slopes super-velvety – all whilst you are all cosy, tucked-up in your apartment, chalet or hotel!

Les Menuires probably holds the best position within the Les 3 Vallées ski area, is set above the tree line and has almost entirely open slopes. The majority of the slopes are spread across the west-facing mountainside between Les Menuires and Saint Martin de Belleville. One side will take you down into Meribel, which then allows you quick access into Courchevel. Alternatively you can drop down into nearby Saint-Martin de Belleville or head much higher towards Val Thorens.

Les Menuires/Saint Martin offers a large ski area which is split into 3 areas:
The Mont de la Chambre area, offers many lifts and long trails above the resort.
The Masse area, is well exposed and is towards the resort offering the best snow.
The Grangerais and Saint Martin area offers wide, open spaces and a slope to the alpine village of Saint Martin.

Obviously the fast, easy and mostly queue-free access to the 3 Valleys ski area is the great appeal to choosing Les Menuires but the ski area of Les Menuires itself provides a great range of skiing for all abilities, a quality lift system and above all excellent snow coverage. The fun areas provide just that – fun: including the ‘Walibi Gliss’ a favourite family playground with blue slalom, boardercross, musical zone (located in the Masse area) and the ‘BK Park’ for the enthusiastic freestylers out there. There is also some fantastic off-piste skiing possibilities in Les Menuires, including Lac du Lou and Vallée des Encombres.

So what makes Les Menuires so snow sure?
- Les Menuires and Saint Martin de Belleville have a high top altitude of 2850m which provides exceptional natural snow cover. This is reinforced by 411 snow cannons that cover 50% of the slopes.
- The two highest summits at 2700m and 2850m also benefit from snow cannons, covering the top slopes right back down into the centre of the resort.
- The sophisticated artificial snow making coverage starts as early as November and continues throughout the whole winter season.

The Skiing

Les Menuires Beginners/Low Level
Novices are well catered for in Les Menuires, making it an ideal choice for families with young children and beginners.

The nursery area is wide and a specific lift pass called the ‘Mini Ski Pass’ is available to beginners to help keep the costs down, giving them unlimited access to 10 extra ski lifts serving gentle ski slopes. 5 of these chairlifts are equipped with a special safety system on the safety bar for children, making them even safer and giving you even more peace of mind.

There are 2 beginner areas where you can learn and improve in complete safety. 6 free magic carpets (1 of which is covered) and 1 free drag lift – allowing completely free and easy access to the slopes for beginners and novices.

Other elements that make Les Menuires great for beginners, novices, children and families are: The Bruyères, Saint Martin and 3 Marches gondolas have been given easier access thanks to the installation of ramps instead of stairs. Fun itineraries have been created around the ski area especially adapted for family fun.

Once you feel more confident you ski from Les Menuires down to Saint Martin de Belleville, on blue slopes the whole way.


Les Menuires Intermediates
The terrain on the Les Menuires side of the valley is more gentle, making it perfect for intermediates. The ski areas above Les Menuires and Val Thorens offer great skiing for intermediates with a good selection of wide, open and cruising slopes.

There is a great long red/blue run towards Saint Martin de Belleville called Jerusalem which is very enjoyable.

Although the Pointe de la Masse sector at 2804m is a little steep and does have a couple of blacks, it is still good for intermediates and the views from the top of the gondola are certainly not to be missed.

Don’t forget to watch out for the impressive 3.5m high ‘Le Bouquetin’ wooden goat sculpture on the red Fred Covili slope! From this slope you have the option to take the red Crêtes but beware that this does feed onto the black Lac Noir. Alternatively you can continue and opt for the large network of blues further down.

If you take the Roc des Trois Marches gondola then ski over to take the Mont de la Chambre chairlift this will take you right up to 2850m. From here you have the option to head straight into Meribel or choose from a great selection of reds and blues back towards the village – perfect for practising those parallel turns!

Les Menuires Experts
Les Menuries has great terrain for experts.

The La Masse sector of Les Menuires at 2804m offers advanced skiers some excellent long and technical blacks as well as off-piste runs, which all tend to be less crowded. The snow coverage here is amazing.

Les Menuires Off-piste
You can enjoy safe powder skiing on non-groomed pistes in Les Menuires thanks to the various ‘Liberty Rides’ created around the ski area:
La Masse: accessible via the La Masse 2 gondola.
Ariondaz near Saint Martin: accessible via the Saint Martin 2 chairlift.
Pylônes: accessible via the Sunny Express chairlift.
At the top of the Roc des 3 Marches gondola you will find the DVA Park (Avalanche Victim Detector), where off-piste enthusiasts can practice their skills at searching for avalanche victims. Open 09:00 – 16:30.

Pointe de la Masse and nearby Cîme de Caron offer exceptional off-piste skiing, probably the best in the 3 Valleys ski area.

As always we highly recommend hiring a mountain guide or instructor to find the best possible off-piste skiing that Les Menuires and Les 3 Vallées have to offer, whist ensuring your safety.

Les Menuires Snowboarders
There is huge amount of terrain for free riders in Les Menuires.

‘Le BK Park’ is located in the Becca area which is accessible via the Becca chairlift. There are 2 boarder-cross (1 blue and 1 red) for the racers as well as bump and rail zones.

The ‘Big Air Bag’ is located at the bottom of the slalom stadium in the La Croisette area of Les Menuires and is perfect for trying out your tricks and jumps in complete safety. Helmets are compulsory (available on site). Open daily 10:00 – 12:30 & 14:00 – 16:30. Approximate cost: €2/jump or €10/6 jumps.

Les Menuires Cross-country skiing
There are 28km/17 miles of prepared trails along the valley floor between Saint Martin de Belleville and Val Thorens.

From Les Menuires you can start from Plan de l’Eau along the Doron river and head towards the villages of Saint Martin de Belleville and Châtelard.

Our prices are calculated at the exchange rate that applies when our currency is bought.

Please note that we do not offer the basic ‘Green’ category as we feel these are generally inadequate skis even for beginners.

 

 

We have 5 conveniently located hire shops in Les Menuires for all your ski and snowboard equipment needs. We offer competitive prices and special offers are also available. Pre-booking your equipment hire will allow you to save precious skiing time once in the resort and means you can budget for your ski holiday, knowing that it is already book and paid for.

We ensure only the highest standard of equipment and service will be provided for all levels of skiers: regularly waxed and edged skis, boots disinfection between each rental and bindings adjusted by a qualified technician in the resort. We are confident that most adequate equipment will be provided and adjusted when you arrive at the shop.

Important Note: For peak periods (Xmas, NY, Feb half term & Easter), we strongly recommend that you book as early as possible and in any case at least 6 weeks prior to the required dates. Morning lessons tend to get booked up first and therefore we may only be able to offer afternoon classes within 6 weeks of departure. In some resorts, English speaking instructors may not always be available, particularly at peak times. Please note that lesson times are subject to change right up until the last minute. Outside French school holidays, the Ski School reserves the right to cancel group lessons should numbers be insufficient. If numbers are low, children may join adult ski school groups. Cancellation or modification of your lessons between 16 and 0 days before departure will incur a cancellation charge of 100%.

Our prices are calculated at the exchange rate that applies when our currency is bought. We cannot always guarantee that prices will be cheaper than in resort but you can be assured that if the pound depreciates, you will not be charged more for your equipment, enabling you to budget for your holiday at the time of booking.
