Les Menuires

If you're all about the skiing and snowboarding and aren't concerned with a vast array of bars and shopping, Les Menuires in France is a brilliant choice for you.

 

It doesn't carry the price tag of the other Three Valley's resorts either, but it does have all of the convenience as many of the places to stay here are slopeside.

At a glance...
  • 600km Three Valleys ski area
  • Snowsure with a glacier
  • Beginner & family friendly
  • Quiet nightlife
  • Saturday flying from Gatwick, Heathrow, Birmingham or Manchester
  • 3 hour transfer

Les Menuires is quite quiet compared to other Three Valley resorts so the choice of bars, clubs and restaurants is small, but good. 

 

We have a small but superb choice of accommodation here. The cosy Neilson Chalet Reberty is close to the slopes and Le Menuire Chalet Hôtel & Spa is very comfortable and has (unsurprisingly) a lovely pool and spa area.

On the mountain

Les Menuires sits in the midst of the largest lift-linked ski area in the world. It has the most skiing of all the Three Valleys resorts with 160km of mainly blue or green runs. 

 

Families and beginners are well provided for with a superb carpet conveyor lift and gentle slopes in the Croisette area. The closest black runs are on La Masse; try the Bouquetin, Dame Blanche or the off piste run down into Orelle for some real challenges. Definitely worth hiring a guide and transceivers for that!

Off the mountain

Relax in the indoor pool or hot tub at the new leisure centre, dine out on Italian, Tex-Mex and Savoyard specialties or seek out the few bars that stay open after midnight. Try Bar pub Le Kube or the only nightclub, Le Leeberty.

 

For an afternoon off the slopes, head to Aquafun and Wellness Centre and relax in the waves and water jets. There's even a dedicated kids area. If you want to stay on the snow, try out the sledging, cross country skiing or the new activity of Speed Mountain tobogganing! Ideal for mini speed demons.
