In winter

In winter

A white paradise

There’s something quite magical about watching the myriad of snowflakes as they fall silently, as light as air…. preparing to cover the land and, much to our delight, transform it into a whole new playground.

From mid-November, the most eager skiers will head up to the high altitudes of Val Thorens to kick-start the season. Others will wait until the Christmas and New Year break to enjoy this special time as a family, watching their little ones’ eyes sparkle with joy. Then come January and February, so close and yet so different, both the perfect time to learn, to discover, to go the extra mile, or to relax in Les 3 Vallées.

March and April follow suit, bringing warmer temperatures, softer light and a totally different ambiance. Take advantage of the longer days and sun-drenched terraces…

Boasting many different qualities, depending on the month, the altitude and your desires, winter in the mountains promises the coolest snowsports experiences.

Welcome to Les 3 Vallées in winter.
