3 Vallées Explorer : discover the 3 Vallées

Helping you exploreles 3 Vallées

The 3 Valleys… A vast ski area, extremely vast. With 600km of ski slopes, it’s the largest in the world. So vast, in fact, that the majority of our visitors only visit 20% of it, and only make use of around 10 lifts. Is that through habit or fear of getting lost?

Because there is SO much to discover, from hidden gems to secret pistes and unseen panoramas, and because it’s SO exhilarating to get off the beaten track, let us reveal a new way to discover the 3 Valleys. The ‘3 Vallées Explorer’ is a new, fun, and personalised experience to show you another side of the ski area, according to your mood on the day.

In adventure mode or freestyle mode, let us guide you and help you discover the 3 Valleys, highlighting the points of interest you must not miss. Take your phone and we’ll show you around!

Forests of fun

Slide into the pine forest at the heart of this hidden playground away from chilly breezes, and lose track of time! The luckiest few may glimpse the local fauna at picnic time or whilst you’re cruising along a fun track through the trees.
Méribel - Menuires

Peaceful pastures

Welcome to this tranquil haven at the heart of the 3 Vallées, unfrequented and with a 360-degree vista. Untouched, typically alpine landscapes invite you to linger on iconic pistes and enjoy an unforgettable secluded picnic.
Méribel - Menuires

White peaks

At the heart of the ski area, this strategic zone is high altitude yet easily accessible, and gives you the impression of being on top of the world. You’ll ski on excellent quality snow, and the efficient ski lifts guarantee you plenty of ski time on the various slopes.
Menuires - Val Thorens

Wild landscapes

A mineral space, where vegetation struggles to grow, and gives way to a gentle but vast landscape.

Bathed in sunlight, this is a spot which offers riders challenges with its significant elevations and always unobstructed views.

Val Thorens - Orelle

Polar panoramas

A lunar destination waiting to be discovered (with the right equipment!) Between 2400m-3000m altitude, get dressed in your warmest gear and head to the North Pole: to the peaks of Val Thorens and Orelle, white as far as the eye can see and where the Alpine panoramas will leave you speechless.
