NEW SNOW MAKING EQUIPMENTS ON THE 3 VALLÉES SLOPES
To guarantee a snow of quality all season long on the 3 Vallées ski area, new snow making equipments will be installed:
- 46 snow making machines on Les Creux ski run (Courchevel)
- 12 on Cospillot ski run (Courchevel)
- And 5 new silent snow making machines at the foot of the resort in Val Thorens
PLEIN SUD SLOPE in VAL THORENS
Even more comfort on the Plein Sud run!
The Plein Sud run, which welcomes 80% of visitors to the 3 Vallées, used to have a tricky passage in its lower section due to the way the terrain was configured.
This zone has now been improved by widening the run as much as possible and lengthening the passage to make it easier for skiers of all abilities. As the improvement works disrupted the existing artificial snow cover network, we took the opportunity to increase its output.
At the start of the season, it will now be easier to open and maintain this run, improving the quality of Val Thorens’ ski area even more.
"LES 3 VALLÉES FOR EVERYONE" GUIDE
On the initiative of the ski lifts companies and the French Ski School (ESF) of the 3 Vallées, a guide listing accessibility for disabled people over the whole 3 Vallées ski area will be published this winter, and distributed at the ski lifts offices.
NEW BLUE RUN, BETTEX, IN LES MENUIRES
An easier access to the Preyerand sectorAccessible from the Roc des 3 Marches, Becca and Saint Martin sectors, the new Bettex blue run has been specially designed to improve access to the Preyerand sector. Not only will it make it easier to ski back to this area, it will also reduce the mass of skiers and non-skiers on La Croisette’s snow front.
GRAND DUC SLOPE in MÉRIBEL
Méribel: The 2015 World Cup is the perfect opportunity to carry out improvement works to the Grand-Duc run, on which part of the finals will be held: the improvements will make the descent more gradual and less abrupt. You don’t have to be a champion to enjoy this run!
BOURBON BUSSET SLOPE in MÉRIBEL
Skiing back to la Chaudanne via the Bourbon Busset run has been made more accessible to skiers of all levels, particularly around the area where it meets the bottom of the Mauduit run.
MARTRE SLOPE in MÉRIBEL
Reshaping the La Martre blue run
In order to make it easier for beginners and intermediate skiers to ski back from the bottom of the Méribel Valley (links to Les Menuires and Val Thorens), the Martre blue run will be reshaped.
S3V (ski lifts of Courchevel, La Tania, Mottaret) is setting up handiski access at the ski lift departure points, with specific signage to make the entry clearly visible.
