Long gone are the days when cycling was reserved for an elite of ultra-fit, ultra-trained sports fans. Now that E-bikes are so easily accessible, everyone can venture onto Les 3 Vallées’ varied range of steep and craggy paths.

Especially because here, in addition to your E-bike, you also have a second good reason to get in the saddle: Les 3 Vallées summer ski lifts provide access to new horizons which would be difficult to reach by pedal power alone.

Discover panoramas over the mountains of the 3 Valleys!

Imagine this: you board a gondola lift to take you to high altitudes, with panoramic views leaving you breathless, and making you feel instantly reinvigorated. But that’s not all! From there, itineraries take you even higher, even further, along trails that you never thought you’d be able to enjoy!

To be sure that you don’t miss this spectacle, pick up a 3 Vallées lift pass on arrival so you can enjoy use of all the summer ski lifts.

Accessible from Courchevel on one side and Méribel on the other, the Col de la Loze cycle route is a mountain path connecting Courchevel to Méribel! This legendary Col forged a solid reputation in summer 2020, when Tour de France racers were tasked with reaching its summit!

NEW this summer: set off to make the ascent of the Col de Tougnète at an altitude of 2430m from Les Menuires or Saint-Martin-de-Belleville. A new cycle path reserved for bikes is born. And for the more athletic, take a short detour to Val Thorens, the highest resort in Europe!
