Hard work pays off


For those who want to exert themselves, our selection of nordic skiing and snowshoe trails to find in the 3 Vallées resort!



What skier hasn’t dreamed of speeding down a wild, untouched slope? You can now make this dream a reality thanks to Maurienne Hors-Piste, which offers a 30-minute ascent in sealskins to reach an unspoiled alpine setting before taking on long, thrilling, off-piste descents.

Les Menuires

Ski touring and Splitboarding! This activity offers true freedom in an unspoiled, pure mountain setting. An alpine guide maps out an impressive, safe route based on ability. After an ascent on touring skis, participants can use unique Splitboard technology to transform their skis into snowboards before taking on the downhill run!


Courchevel was the first French ski resort to create a safe, marked-out piste for ski touring in 2012. Every winter since, skiers have enjoyed the 2-mile run with an elevation difference of more than 500 metres from Courchevel Le Praz to the foot of the slopes in Courchevel. Accessible throughout the day, with one night-time descent per week during the Millet Ski Touring event.

A second run has also been added, from Le Praz to the summit of La Loze. The new 3.2-mile circuit offers an elevation difference of more than 1,000 metres, and is the setting for the Plum KV cross-country race.

Val Thorens

Accompanied by the skiing pioneers of Val Thorens, the Dynafit Snow Leopard Track night-time ski touring expedition begins at dusk. Expect a host of stories about the resort’s history, and mulled wine and onion soup at Chalet de la Marine to finish.

The Gébroulaz glacier is known as the “White Valley of Vanoise”. A magical setting in which to discover glacier skiing, against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery. Starting in Méribel, the ski lifts take daring adventurers up to Val Thorens, where they put on their sealskins and hike an hour up to the Gébroulaz mountain pass.

Skiers can choose from several options. The first offers gentle slopes leading to the Tueda Natural Reserve. The second includes a downhill run on the Gébroulaz glacier before another hour-long ascent to reach the Borgne glacier and a descent into Méribel-Mottaret.

The third and most exciting takes hikers to the village of Pralognan as part of the most beautiful circuit in the Vanoise region, with a taxi ride back to Méribel.

La Tania

Calling all high-level hikers! The snowshoe hike offered by Raquette Evasion begins at the Ball Trap and continues for 2.8 miles and 3 hours, with an elevation difference of more than 600 metres. The perfect way to discover the region’s secret spots such as the Creux du Loup and the Creux de l’Ours…

Saint Martin de Belleville

The ESF ski school in Saint-Martin organises night-time snowshoe hikes. Equipped with flaming torches, participants set off with a guide and enjoy dinner in a farmhouse or alpine chalet.
