Les Menuires is becoming a big player in The Three Valleys sitting at 1850 metres just below Val Thorens.
The underrated ski resort boasts a wide selection of amenities plus a secret ski area hidden from the wider Three Valleys chaos.
Les Menuires has undergone massive development in recent decades creating a ski-in/ski-out destination competing with the A list French ski resorts. It is particularly popular with the French who take family holidays here year in, year out.
Apartment blocks and chalets mingle among the south-facing slopes and ski lifts. Ski shops keep your gear in top condition along with high-quality ski rental. Restaurants sit slope side serving various international cuisine. Stock up on supplies in local supermarkets to keep you fuelled all day. Plus a selection of international ski schools tune your technique on request.
Connect to other local resorts like Val Thorens and Saint Martin de Belleville via the regular local free ski bus.
The Ski Area
Les Menuires creates a unique skiing experience for its guests with long winding runs connecting to a 600km ski area.
The cool thing about Les Menuires is instant access to the quiet La Masse ski area which is only approachable through the town.
Wide-open slopes for all abilities surround the ski resort, perfect for beginners and for getting your ski legs back.
The abundance of south-facing slopes do suffer in the sun. Not to worry. Just head to the high altitude of Val Thorens climbing up to well over 3000 metres. You can even explore another Three Valleys secret - Orelle (The fourth valley!!)
Adventure everywhere along a network of blue and red runs including a devilish 6km top to bottom run. Challenge your limits on black runs and off-piste for epic world-class skiing.
Les Menuires is a major player in The Three Valleys with everything you could want from hidden ski areas to sunny lunch spots.
