SKI HOLIDAYS IN LES MENUIRES

Les Menuires offers some of the most competitive deals in the Three Valleys area. If you are looking for the cheapest way to explore the Three Valleys ski area then Les Menuires is the way to do it. Situated directly beneath Val Thorens (the highest resort in Europe) a ski holiday in Les Menuires gives you access to the biggest linked ski area in the world with over 600km of breathtaking pistes.

The resort of Les Menuires itself is split into 6 smaller villages, with a shuttle bus running between them all day, reliably, every 20 minutes. To reach Les Menuires from Moutier, in the valley, it is only a 40 minute transfer bus up the mountain, and the whole journey from Geneva airport is doable in less than 3 hours, or less than 2 hours from Chambery airport.

 

SKIING IN LES MENUIRES

Skiing in Les Menuires caters for every ability with lots of beginner zones and lots of easy green and blue runs. For the intermediate and expert skiers the access to Val Thorens, Courcheval, Meribel and Saint Martin De Belleville means you will not stop discovering new terrain to play upon.  

Les Menuires is one of the first ski resorts to offer the ‘Snow Guarantee’ label due to its high altitiude and excellent snow making facilities when it is looking a little thin on the ground. With over 600km of piste in the entire linked ski area, there’s too much piste to let it go to waste.

If you fancy yourself as a budding freestyler then be sure to check out Les Menuires' BK Park, or any of the other 3 snowparks in the linked area including Courchevel’s famous DC Park. Les Menuires also has the Walibi Gliss area, a family fun area with a boardercross, blue slalom, and a musical zone.

Skiing Les Menuires is famous amongst The 3 Valleys ski instructors for its abundance of breathtaking off-piste skiing. Until you have straightlined through the Les Menuires powder fields to skim across the top of the river in Lac De Lou, you've not experienced the real heights of off piste, it is a firm favourite.

 

 

 

 

 

ACCOMMODATION IN LES MENUIRES

Accommodation in Les Menuires is split across 6 smaller satellite villages. There is a huge range of accommodation to choose from, with budget self catered accommodation and luxury chalets nestled side by side in all six. Previously an unsightly, purpose built collection of dated buildings, Les Menuires has recently undertaken an entire resort refurbishment meaning the accommodation is now a lot more aesthetically pleasing both inside and out.

When choosing your accommodation in Les Menuires it helps to look at each smaller village and see what they offer. Although the villages are all very close to each other and have a frequent bus service operating between them, it is good to have a base that best suits your needs:

Accommodation in La Croisette is the most popular as it is the most vibrant area of the resort with the most bars, shops and restaurants. Reberty 2000 is perhaps best suited to families wanting a quieter place to stay and has a very short walk to amenities such as the ski hire shops, supermarkets and ski schools. For the ‘get-up-and-go’ skiers, perhaps Reberty 1850 would be top choice due to its quick access to the Bruyeres bubble lift and beyond.

 
APRES SKI IN LES MENUIRES

When the last lift slows to a halt and the sun is dropping behind the mountain, it’s time to ditch your skis for the day and find something else to do. It is at this point that the true variety Les Menuires has to offer really comes to light. Although it is a quieter resort in terms of drinking, partying and clubbing, with a much smaller selection of bars and a more peaceful vibe, for the action hungry and families it has huge appeal.

Apres ski attractions to keep the kids busy in Les Menuires include the aquafun swimming pool (complete with wave machine and massage jets); the Fun Park soft play area with trampolines, ball-pits and big slides; and the ‘Sliding Castle’ which consists of snow structures built purely for sliding down on their plastic shovel toboggans. In short, there is a LOT of fun to be had off the slopes in Les Menuires.

 
TRANSFERS TO LES MENUIRES

Ben's Bus offers shared Les Menuires Airport Transfers and are almost certainly the cheapest way of getting from the airport to Les Menuires.
