Brides Les Bains

Three Valleys - France
Largest Ski Area in the World
Brides les Bains

March 1 - 9/12, 2019

Three Valleys, France is the largest ski area in the world. It is a gorgeous destination that all skiers/boarders should experience. The beauty is not only in the panoramic views of the Alps, but also in the efficient connections between all of the valleys. The lift system is among the most modern in the world, with over 200 lifts and 386 miles of ski trails, eight ski areas that connect Brides-Les Bains, Meribel, Courchevel, Val Thorens, La Tania, Les Menuires, St Martin De Belleville, Orelle. Three Valleys hosted many of the 1996 Olympic ski events and hockey games. One ski lift pass is good for all areas. A skier/boarder would need at least a month to experience everything Three Valleys has to offer! Meribel is the heart of the Three Valleys located between Val Thorens and Courchevel. This village gives skiers/boarders easy access to the entire ski region. Meribel is a modern and well-equipped ski area however; it maintains the charm of an old village in the Savoie area of France. There are ski trails for all abilities from wide, gentle well-groomed slopes for the beginners, to steep trails with moguls to challenge the experts.
