The youngest valley
The Three Valleys area is a well-known hub for skiers and snowboarders, with whopping mountainous sights and incredible slopes for all abilities. 130km of pistes turns into 600km if you fancy heading further afield, but the quaint La Tania is the youngest, freshest valley.
The powdered pipes lend themselves to avid snowboarders, with plenty of curvaceous, snowy inclines to provide a challenge. Freestylers can hit the snow parks, too. Of the amazing black mogul runs, ‘The Ugly Sisters’ is the toughest of the bunch, and not for rookies.
The small resort is filled with slopes running through the town and the hills are scattered with cosy chalets. Bed down in the gorgeous wooden buildings in the centre, or wander upwards and settle into a hidden mountainside retreat. Either way, it’s utterly tranquil.
