The world offers plenty of ski resorts to tempt skiers and boarders from all over; from New Zealand to Canada, there’s plenty to choose from. Be that as it may, The Three Valleys remains one of the most popular, and that’s no accident. Here are just four reasons why it remains unrivalled.
- It’s the Largest in the World
As the name implies The Three Valleys links up, well, three valleys. That means you’ll have the largest ski area in the world at your disposal, with around 600 km (370 miles) of open slope to explore, or up to 18.5 km² of groomed runs. The Three Valleys is home to eight separate ski resorts that are linked together by a network of ski lifts and ski runs, so finding your way across all three valleys is easy.
- Beginners Will Love It
One of the most fantastic things about The Three Valleys is that the resort provides a perfect blend of run difficulties. Beginners will find plenty of blue runs on which to hone their skills, while a multitude of reds and blacks will cater to experts. There are also plenty of ski schools available across each resort.
- It Can Handle the Crowds
The Three Valleys is rightly popular, but that doesn’t mean that it ever feels crowded. The entire area boasts 183 ski lifts that are together capable of transporting 260,000 skiers per hour. The fact that there is no one single centre to the area means that there is no bottlenecking at the bottom. You’ll be onto the lifts quickly each morning.
- It’s Perfect for Everybody
Some ski areas cater to more mature skiers, while others are best for families and still more suited to young party-goers; The Three Valleys can accommodate them all. There are crèches for children, family-friendly evening activities, and a whole host of bars, many of which are on the slopes themselves.
Whether you’re a newbie or an expert, a family or a university society, The Three Valleys can provide miles of slope and the snow holiday of your life.
