Les Menuires Ski Holiday Resort
Les Menuires offers reasonably priced accommodation and great links into the Three Valleys. The original centre of the resort is unattractive but newer satellite villages are far prettier where there is a better selection of attractive looking chalets and apartments.
Situated between Val Thorens and St Martin de Belleville in the same valley, the resort has excellent links over to the Meribel valley by taking the two stage Roc des 3 Marches. From here at the top 3 Marches at 2704 metres you take a quick ski down to Mottaret or Meribel.
The slopes immediately around the resort are fantastic for all ability of skier and are relatively uncrowded with the exception of some crowding over peak periods.
In addition to the slopes around the resort there is huge amount of off-piste to suit all experts. Intermediates have a good selection of slopes both locally and throughout the Three Valleys, and there are some good beginner slopes close to this high altitude resort.
There is a reasonable selection of both mountain restaurants for lunch and evening meals. There are also bars and discos for the night owls.
A great cheaper alternative for those wishing to ski the Three Valleys. Not the prettiest place in the world but fantastic ski in ski out accommodation. Mainly hotel and apartment accommodation although there are some chalets now.
