FEBRUARY, the perfect month for ski holidays and getting together with family
Admittedly, it’s the shortest month of the year, but it’s also the month that you count down the days to with the most impatience and excitement. The pure pleasure of reconnecting, coupled with an amazing week of winter sports. It’s so wonderful to be able to enjoy this precious experience with the family every year. Children and parents alike look forward to their holiday with a smile on their lips and a sparkle in their eyes, as they know for sure that everyone, in their own way and at their own level, will make the most of this quality time out in the snowy wide-open spaces, enjoying unforgettable experiences in the world’s largest ski area.
Open your eyes and let yourself go: Welcome to Les 3 Vallées in February!
1. Making the most of Les 3 Vallées’ ultra-modern ski lifts
The February school holidays are the busiest time of year, both in resort and on the slopes. Luckily, the wait at the foot of the mountain is almost non-existent, thanks to the ultra-modern and high-performance equipment available in Les 3 Vallées.
4 funitels (a technology developed in Val Thorens and exported across the world), 3 cable cars, 32 gondola lifts, 61 high-speed chairlifts, 2 télébenne gondolas, 36 button lifts and 25 magic carpets… all in all, there are 163 lifts working to maximise passenger flow and reduce queues… thus giving you more time on your skis.
2. Enjoying the great outdoors
With 600 kilometres of doorstep skiing, 339 downhill runs and more than 35,000 hectares of natural landscapes, one thing is certain: even in February, you can enjoy the unique pleasure of making the mountains your own, with the possibility of heading off to quieter runs if you like.
And thanks to many dedicated safe areas, beginners can learn with complete peace of mind.
3. Being smart!
When organising your stay, book your accommodation from Sunday to Sunday to avoid the busiest departure and arrival times.
Get ahead by checking out the many great deals still available in Les 3 Vallées, even in the busiest times of the year.
4. Reconnecting with your inner child on Les 3 Vallées’ fun runs
Initially designed with young skiers and snowboarders in mind, now the whole family can have a blast on these fun areas! Throughout the week, enjoy fun snowsports experiences and plenty of laughs at the Yeti Park in Méribel Mottaret; an amazing world with Yooni, the friendly blue Yeti, or head over to the Western Ski Park, home to Courchevel’s cowboys and Indians, not forgetting the Friendly Natural Park in Les Menuires.
Kids and kids at heart will love testing their skills on the boardercross, whoops, big air bag and other jumps at Meribel’s Open Park, Courchevel’s Family Park and the VT Park in Val Thorens.
5. Treating yourself to some me-time
Take advantage of the excellent supervision at the Les 3 Vallées’ esf French ski schools. With ski kindergartens and day care centres available in all Les 3 Vallées’ resorts, you can entrust your children to them for a few hours with total peace of mind.
This is your chance to explore everything the world’s largest ski area has to offer, and to set off to discover mythical runs like Béranger, Goitschel, Léo Lacroix, Mauduit, and others, like Jean Blanc or the Combe de La Saulire...
