With the 2.5-mile luge piste with 22 Roc ‘N’ Bob turns and the 1,000-metre thrill-ride at Speed Mountain, your holidays in Les Menuires are sure to slip by in a flash!
3. Yéti style
The Yeti Park in Méribel- Mottaret is accessible via the Combes chairlift, and offers fun skiing for all. This year’s park has a couple of extra circuits in store!

5. Discover the profession of ski patroller

6. First track
The restaurant Les Pierres Plates at the top of La Saulire welcomes lucky skiers every Wednesday morning to watch the beautiful sunrise at 2,738 metres of altitude. This magical event is then followed by a hearty breakfast and a run down the freshly-groomed piste.
Every Wednesday morning discover another incredible summit of Les 3 Vallées : La Pointe de la Masse in Les Menuires. Make the first descent of the day with mountain professionals. You will share with them, in all conviviality, a breakfast under the morning light of an extraordinary landscape.
7. Drive a snow groomer
It’s big, it’s powerful, and it’s usually out of bounds, but Courchevel Adventure offers the public one-hour sessions at the wheel of a snow-groomer and the chance to discover this exciting profession.

8. Mega and double zip-lines
Fly for 1,300 metres at almost 62mph and experience pure pleasure for 1min45 while you admire the breathtaking panoramic view! Start at the top of the Bouchet ski lift in the Orelle ski area at 3,230 metres of altitude, and finish at the top of the Thorens funitel.
Run down two-by-two a length of 1800 meters and a maximal flying height of 65 meters. The double zip-line The Bee awaits you for thrills! Let's meet at the top of the Moutière chairlift! THE good deal: to be done in the morning as the price is cheaper.
9. Ice diving
A timeless experience under the ice of the Lac du Lou, in a magical world of air bubbles and dancing sunlight.
Our tip: The ice is thinner and there is less of it on the surface during the spring. This creates a certain transparency that lets you see the mountain’s reflection for a totally different experience…
10. Les 3 vallées seen from the skies
The highest resorts in Les 3 Vallées, such as Val Thorens, are perched at more than 2,300 metres of altitude, and their ski slopes let you get up close and personal with the peaks. But why not venture a little higher? With hang-gliding, paragliding, hot air balloons, and rides in planes and helicopters, you can admire this snowy paradise from the air. Information on the flights is available at your local tourist information centre.
And those looking for an experience filled with pure air and wild nature, Air Mauss Parachutisme has been organising tandem skydiving jumps in Courchevel for more than 20 years. Expect 45 seconds of freefall at 125mph with impressive views over the Alps and the Vanoise National Park!
