THE LOWDOWN

“No other winter playground can match it for size, or for the way it’s lifts and pistes knit together to create a seamless and seemingly never-ending whole. Boredom will never be an issue.”

The Sunday Times, December 2013

 

Les 3 Vallées (the clue’s in the title..) consists of three valleys: Saint-Bon, Allues, and Belleville. Since 1973, it has been possible to ski the interlinked valleys using a single ski pass. This makes Les 3 Vallées the largest ski area in the world, connected solely by ski lifts and slopes.

This area truly is an exceptional ski domain designed as much for seasoned skiers as it is for beginners and children. You’ll experience maximum comfort with minimum waiting thanks to the world’s most modern and comfortable ski lift network comprising of 180+ ski lifts, including 2 cable cars, 33 gondolas and 40+ high speed chairs.

The vast and stunning mountainous area is located within the Savoie department of France. As well as being famous as a winter-sports destination, Savoie is known for its cows – and the superb cheeses they produce, including Beaufort, Gruyère, Reblochon and Tomme de Savoie. Numerous wines are also grown in Savoie; mostly blending Gamay, Pinot noir and Mondeuse grapes.
