Skiing the Three Valleys in France last year was one of our favourite travel adventures in 2012. With over 660 kms of ski runs and 180 ski lifts in the Three Valleys, we were completely spoilt for choice.
Skiing the Three Valleys in France
The 3 Valleys are a snow lovers dream. We spent 6 days skiing the Three Valleys in France and it felt like we didn’t even scratch the surface. We tried to explore as much as possible but the size of the ski field blew us away.
Every new run we ventured down would lead us to a new chairlift and every chairlift led us to even more breathtaking views. It felt like the ski area just went on and on and on.
And the facilities in the Three Valleys are outstanding. We were there off-peak so the lines were non-existent and we were even lucky enough to get a few fresh inches of powder to enjoy.

Extra Travel Information
How to get to the Three Valleys in France
There are only two feasible options to getting to the Three Valleys. You can either catch the overnight Ski train with Eurostar from London. Or you can fly into either Geneva or Grenoble, with cheap flights from Monarch, before jumping on a bus for 2 hours to the villages in the Three Valleys.
Where to stay in the Three Valleys
We stayed in the very cute town of Brides-Les-Bains. It was slightly quieter than most of the other villages in the Three Valleys as it was a 40 minute gondola from the first ski runs. This also means that Brides-Les-Bains is a lot cheaper than other options like the ridiculously expensive Val Thorens.
