France’s 3 Valleys ski area is the largest in the world, combining world-class resorts including Méribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens. With over 600km of varying pistes and over 200 efficient lifts, the 3 Valleys area boasts some of the best skiing in the world.
An estimated 260,000 skiers are transported hourly, all of which get to enjoy the breathtaking backdrops of mountains whilst whizzing around the well-kept slopes. The rather appropriately named 3 Valleys ski area consists of, obviously, three valleys. Méribel is situated in the middle valley, surrounded by Courchevel and Val Thorens, with other smaller villages scattered around.
The 3 Valleys ski area is a perfect location for beginners and advanced skiers alike, with a wide range of comfortable and challenging slopes. And for any thrill-seeking skiers, the Grand Couloir run in Courchevel is known to be one of the scariest in Europe.
