Vallee de Belleville
This is such an excellent location for access to the whole of the famous Three Valleys, the largest linked ski domain in the world. You have options each day to ski either the Belleville Valley with great scope to ski Les Menuires, Val Thorens and into the fourth valley of Orelle or over to the Meribel Valley or even farther afield into the Courchevel Valley taking in La Tania on the way. You will be totally spoilt for choice here.
Les Menuires is situated in the Bellville Valley at 1800m, just 500m from Val Thorens, the highest ski resort in Europe. It is linked to both the Meribel and Courchevel Valleys. It has great skiing and sensibly priced activities. Consequently it has become an ever more popular resort, especially as the slopes of the Three Valleys are easily accessed.
Its local slopes are some of the best for good skiers: challenging, usually with good snow, and rarely used by visitors from the other valleys. There are many satellite villages off Les Menuires, which hold more charm and authenticity. Le Bettaix is one of them, situated just outside of the main resort, with its own blue ski run from Les Menuires back to the village.
For the real enthusiast looking for the best snow, it is difficult to beat Val Thorens, Europe’s highest resort. It can always guarantee snow and what fab quality snow it is! Val Thorens is completely unique; a ski area not for the faint hearted with raw majestic beauty.
This is a place of extremes; extreme drops, cold and wind but also of beauty, views and thrills.
