Les Menuires is situated in the Bellville Valley at 1800m, just 500m from Val Thorens, the highest ski resort in Europe. It is linked to both the Meribel and Courchevel Valleys. It has great skiing and sensibly priced activities. Consequently it has become an ever more popular resort, especially as the slopes of the Three Valleys are easily accessed.
Its local slopes are some of the best for good skiers: challenging, usually with good snow, and rarely used by visitors from the other valleys. There are many satellite villages off Les Menuires, which hold more charm and authenticity. Le Bettaix is one of them, situated just outside of the main resort, with its own blue ski run from Les Menuires back to the village.

For the real enthusiast looking for the best snow, it is difficult to beat Val Thorens, Europe’s highest resort. It can always guarantee snow and what fab quality snow it is! Val Thorens is completely unique; a ski area not for the faint hearted with raw majestic beauty.
This is a place of extremes; extreme drops, cold and wind but also of beauty, views and thrills.

There are various choices for you when you consider which ski passes to purchase. These depend on your ability and how much of this awesome ski domain that you wish to explore.
If you want to explore the whole of the Three Valleys you can buy a 3 Valleys pass for 6 days (or for however many days you wish). If however you are happy to stay closer to home you can buy just the local St. Martin/Les Menuires pass. Alternatively, if you want to stay close to home but enjoy a little more adventure take the Belleville Valley pass which gives you the local areas plus Val Thorens/Orelle.
You can buy a Three Valleys or St. Martin/Les Menuires Family pass for 2 adults and 2 children (up to 18 years) but you cannot buy a Family pass for the Belleville Valley. Children up to 5 and seniors from 75 can ski for free. Pietons (people on foot) passes can be purchased for any lifts across the Three Valleys.
