LES MENUIRES - Information

Resort Information  LES MENUIRES

This terrific French resort is located right in the heart of the Belleville Valley, part of the extensive 3 Valleys ski area. Les Menuires boasts some of the most sought after skiing in the 3 valleys with beginners and intermediates well looked after, while experts have the whole of the 3 valleys to explore. The town, at the foot of the slopes, enjoys good restaurants and great nightlife. Les Menuires shares the Belleville valley with its sister resort of Val Thorens and they offer a varied and extensive selection of accommodation, from simple apartments to 4-star hotels, along with a number of chalets and apart-hotels. So whether you are looking for a budget weekend break or a full service week-long stay the resort has something for you. Due to the altitude and the vast ski area, the resort usually enjoys good snow conditions from November until late April. Lying as it does above the tree line, you will often find Les Menuires is just a scene of beautiful white snow in every direction, surrounded by rugged peaks and topped with blue sky. There is an extensive lift system, which provides quick and easy access to a vast array of piste. Within a few minutes you can be heading up to Val Thorens and within half an hour you can be skiing down towards Courchevel. With around 160km of piste in the Belleville there is plenty on offer close to home. There are good facilities for beginners and plenty of blue terrain for early intermediates. The local red trails usually enjoy good snow, with areas such as La Masse being of particular interest, and with another two valleys to play in, intermediates will never get bored. Experts will find lots of piste to enjoy too, such as the awesome Combe de Caron and with a guide can find some of the most spectacular off-piste in Europe.
