The biggest ski resort.
Winter resorts in France take a special position, and among them, doubtless, there are Three Valleys, stretching for as many as 140 hectares of the Alps. The three Valleys resort-the champion in many respects. It is the highest ski centre of Europe, where the longest ski runs – as many as 600 km, the greatest number of lifts – 200, the most enviable team of instructors and lifeguards. The season is open from November until may.
The name “Three Valleys” is not just nice hearing the lyrics, he’s got a literal meaning. The whole resort area is divided into three parts: Saint-Bon, Belleville and Des-Ala. For sale is a ski pass that lets you freely run between them. In each of the zones are located Podgorica-villages for every taste, purse and riding skill, so in the Three Valleys find refuge from many different people. But especially popular are the two villages
First – Meribel, heart of the Three Valleys, located right in the centre. World famous resort acquired thanks to the Olympic games in 1992. Meribel managed to avoid violating the local atmosphere architectural fashion of the 60s on the high-rise, concrete houses-boxes – the entire resort consists of Chalet with light wood, which preserves Alpine authenticity and gives a good mood. For tourists in Meribel equipped with 75 runs and 58 lifts for both beginners and advanced skiers.
And, of course, Courchevel – a word familiar to the ear of almost every Russian, because it is perhaps the most popular among our countrymen winter resort and host to about 30 thousand tourists from the CIS countries per year. The name Courchevel has become almost a household word, as here I love to visit the stars – not so many come for the opportunity to ride, but because it is required by their status. But this resort really worthy.
The ski area is rather for beginners and intermediate skiers than advanced Amateurs and professionals.
No wonder the world’s elite and royalty choose Courchevel for your vacation – this place really has a special secular atmosphere. This is one of the best places in the Alps for non-skiers. Courchevel boasts excellent shopping, a rich cultural program with hockey matches, concerts, shows and performances. This is a real Paradise for gourmets – the restaurant business is thriving at the highest level. To visit in Courchevel means to join high society.
In addition, the Three Valleys can improve not only coniferous mountain air. Here are located Spa complex with mineral water to reduce excess weight as a Wellness centre with thermal baths, salt water which will help to cure skin diseases and rheumatism.
Can be called Three Valleys, the most contrasting ski resort with the widest range of possibilities, so every self-respecting skier will probably want to check in here.
