Learning to Ski in Les Menuires

14 Dec 2015

Les Menuires hardly needs an introduction, but as one of the best-known resorts in the Trois Valleys, with over 77 pistes, 30 plus ski lifts and host of alternative activities, it may come as a surprise that it is also one of the most affordable options too.

Get the Whole Family Skiing in Les Menuires Resort

The resort is also referred to as the most family-friendly resort in The Trois Valley. This is due to an ideal mixture of green and blue pistes, and flat practice areas. There is also plenty for the kids to do between ski lessons such as the mini-toboggan run and playground areas. For us, what makes the Les Menuires Resort a great family option is the attitude, not the altitude. Les Menuires doesn’t take itself as seriously as some of the other resorts in the area. While it’s true that the architecture might not be as picturesque, the runs not as steep and the restaurants not quite as filled with celebrities, we find this makes skiing in Les Menuires Resort rather more comfortable, especially for those just starting out.

A Perfect Choice for Beginner Skiers

What Les Menuires lacks in jet-set trappings, it makes up for in practicality. There are superb pistes on both sides of the resort for near guaranteed snow conditions. It is also ski-in –ski out, making it a great choice for learners who aren’t yet comfortable coming on and off lifts. It sounds such a small detail, but safe lift use is a ski skill all of its own and one you’ll learn in your first week of lessons. What’s more, with the centrality of the village bowl, it’s easy for skiers of all levels to meet up for lunch and coffees. There’s no need to expect beginners to navigate the piste-side bars on the higher slopes.
