If you’re eager to hit the slopes and put your new-found skiing skills to the test, you’ll find it hard to find somewhere as spectacular and inspiring as the Three Valleys.
The area first consisted of the three valleys themselves; Saint-Bon, Allues and Belleville. Since then, frequent expansion and extension has led to a ‘fourth valley’ known as the Maurienne valley. The largest ski space in the world, and connected exclusively by ski lifts and slopes, this is the snow-obsessed sports fans dream.
As if you needed any more convincing, here’s our top five reasons to visit the Three Valleys. You’re missing out if you give this one a skip!
The Size Means You’re Spoilt for Choice
It may seem like a remarkably obvious point, but the sheer scope of the Three Valleys means you’ll never be depleted of options or choice. In fact, there’s no real urgency to ride the same slope twice, as you’ll have so much variety in pistes, scenery and courses.
With eight ski resorts to pick from, and with different qualities present at each, finding the perfect one for you can be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. You can pick from 25 accessible summits, 321 Alpine ski runs, 169 ski lifts and over 600 kilometres of interconnected ski runs.
What’s more, the plentiful alternatives mean you can repeatedly visit the Three Valleys and find something new each time. This isn’t a one trip experience by any means! There’ll always be a new place to come back to here.
The Leisurely Lifestyle is Next to None
Being such an internationally renowned skiing destination, the Three Valleys never comes up short when it comes to restaurants, cafes and night time bars. Each resort has a buzzing social scene that offers fine foods, plenty of drink and a heap of atmosphere.
If you visit at special times of the year, many resorts feature special seasonal events and performances that you won’t want to miss. Places like Courchevel and Meribel offer plenty of activities, even in the January weeks, which will enrich your experience and offer something a little different.
It’s not just the ongoing festivities, either, as you can browse and choose from many high-end accommodation services. At Alpine Infusion, we have top-of-the range, luxury chalets in both Courchevel and Meribel that offer the very best experience the Three Valleys has to offer.
There’s a Slope for Every Skill Level
The Three Valleys is an ideal family destination for skiing, or for any group with a mix of abilities and skill levels. There are so many different pistes to choose from, all ranging from the very demanding black runs to the gentle, beginner areas. From kids to seasoned professionals, everyone is welcome at the slopes here.
Make sure to check out the resort you’ll be staying at before you go and work out which runs look best suited to you and your family. Always prepare before you head out to get the best experience!

It’s Not Just About the Skiing
While we know you’re likely to want to spend your time skiing, sledging and carving through the snow, there’s also a host of other activities that you can get stuck into during the less chilly months. Should you venture out to the Three Valleys when the summer sun is shining, you’ll have a wide range of options to pick from.
Whether it’s hiking across the terrain, mountain biking or even shopping, you won’t run out of things to enjoy. Make sure to pack a camera to grab social media-worthy snaps of the stunning views, and have your money saved up for some excellent and unique spending opportunities!
