The Three Valleys ski area should be on every skier and snowboarders to do list. One of the worlds biggest ski areas is made up eight separate but linked ski resorts.
These Include Meribel, Mottaret, Couchevel, La Tania and Val Thorens.
Val Thorens is the highest resort in France and offers some great ski in/ski out opportunities.
The exclusive Courchevel is the favoured hang out for the rich and famous, but also has some great runs for all abilities.
Meribel sits in the heart of the Three Valleys and is renowned for its night life, but also has great off piste and the best snow park in the area.
Mottaret in the same valley as Meribel gives access to the same ski area, with a slightly quieter atmosphere.
La Tania is a great all-rounder with tame wide pistes for beginners but also a pretty good nightlife giving it something for all.

2 connected ski resorts, great nightlife
The two main resorts that comprise this area are the world famous Val d'Isere and Tignes.
Val d'Isere has some of the best après and nightlife in the alps! Tignes in contrast is much more modern, the original town having been sacrificed beneath the reservoir in the valley below the 'new' Tignes.
Both resorts offer tons of interconnected slopes, great nightlife and an abundance of tourists- who appreciate this area!
