The Masse summit offers an incredible 360° panorama. A unique view of the Alps with the Mont Blanc as highlight.
Thanks to the new blue piste, skiers of all levels can enjoy a relaxing moment before skiing down the 1000 m of vertical height fall.
This is also a popular place for freeride and technical-slope enthusiasts. In fact, Kevin Guri, winner of the Xtreme de Verbier in 2013, has made the area his ‘playground’. “La Masse in Les Menuires is one of the best spots in the 3 Valleys! The Lac Noir along with the Yvozes and Lac du Lou itineraries are not to be missed if you are a freeskiing fan."
Mont de la Chambre summit faces the Pointe de la Masse. At 2800 m, it is the essential link point of the 3 Vallées. Accessible by chairlift but also by cable car, it allows pedestrians to enjoy a unique view of the chain of the Alps and Mont Blanc. From its summit, the routes are multiple ... red, blue or black trails allow skiers to reach Les Menuires, Val Thorens and Meribel-Mottaret. Snowshoe enthusiasts can also discover a 1000m vertical drop downhill course.
On individual sledges, children and adults take on Boukty, the resort’s mascot, over a 1000 m long run on the twists, descents and raised bends... and all in a sumptuous setting. The run is landscaped (little stone house, tree trunk...) and has about ten Boukty challenge themed signboards: the aim is to beat his record! Thanks to 3 control points, the tobogganist knows how he is getting on: as prudent as a snail or a marmot, fast and agile like a hare or an ibex.
Open to children from 5 years old sharing a toboggan with an adult, Speedmountain is a real family activity.
Roc'n Bob is 4km of tobogganing on a snow covered run. A magical moment to be shared with the family.
Enjoy the pleasure of steering your way down: a long series of bends "the Roc rapids" and quickly into the "Never ending Canyon" with smaller turns.
