An exceptional weekend
When the call of the mountains becomes irresistible, don't wait for the holidays to take advantage of the largest ski area in the world! For a weekend, organise a fully packed time out from the daily grind, with your partner or friends, to enjoy the great outdoors together and create unforgettable moments.
Sports challenges on the ski runs or off-piste in the company of an instructor; laughter on the huge sledging slopes; a slower paced activity on snowshoes or an old-world experience on a dog sled... A rich and varied programme to be perfected by well-deserved breaks for lunch on the terrace in the sun or at the extra-ordinary Folie Douce for entertainment that matches the altitude. To make sure you don't miss a thing, book accommodation at the foot of the slopes.
What are you waiting for to pack your bags and succumb to the pleasures of an impromptu ski weekend?
Whatever your level, your available days off, the level of your winter sports friends…
there is a holiday for everyone in Les 3 Vallées.
Les 3 Vallées from Sunday to Sunday
Take advantage of clear road access, discounts on accommodation, special opportunities on the slopes... so many reasons to start your stay in Les 3 Vallées on a Sunday!
Take advantage of the ski slopes from Monday to Saturday, when the ski runs are less frequented and the ski day is cheaper on Saturday. Don't worry, at the height of the season, everything is as available in the seven resorts that make up Les 3 Vallées on Sundays as on other days of the week. Equipment rental shops, tourist offices, small shops, restaurants... all will be ready to give you a warm welcome.
The icing on the cake: arriving at your holiday destination on a Sunday is an opportunity to take advantage of the greater availability of staff. The very best of Les 3 Vallées experience!
A short break with the gang in March
Because there is so much to do, see and to experience in Les 3 Vallées, prepare your short stay by choosing your ideal programme of activities!
On a four-day long weekend in March, for example, start gently stretching your ski legs on the delicious green and blue slopes of the ski area. Then after a leisurely start, it's time for a challenge! Discover the ski area as you have never seen it before in the company of a ski instructor who will reveal all its secrets. Between well-hidden itineraries and secret spots for souvenir photos, you'll have a great time.
The adventure is rounded off with a relaxing moment in a mountain restaurant to taste the local specialities. Four days is perfect break from everyday life!
April with the family
It's wonderful to be able to enjoy the wide-open spaces to the end of the season!
The temperatures are milder, the snow is still there, the budding skiers have already gained confidence after having taken some ski lessons at the beginning of the winter... In April, all the conditions combine to ensure that your family ski holiday will be a privileged interlude in Les 3 Vallées! Ski instructors are still available to help you perfect the right techniques or to guide you off the beaten track.
Make memories during your last descents. In the world's largest ski area, the pleasures of winter last a long time!
The last snows of winter, shared with friends
April, spring, yes, but it's not yet time to put away your ski suit, instead organise a stay with friends in Les 3 Vallées to finish the winter in style. The days are longer and the temperatures milder for ski days that last longer!
With your 3 Vallées Tribu Pass in your pocket and ski equipment rented, the extended weekend promises to be a busy one. To each his own programme, between gentle green or blue runs, more technical famous ski runs or off-piste descents. You can take the time to once again admire the exceptional panoramic views along the slopes and to enjoy nature to the full. At lunchtime or in the early evening, meet up to exchange tales of the fabulous day.
One last magical stay before spring!
