You don't have to be a champion to climb to the top! They are also accessible to apprentice skiers, and the proof is in the pudding:
The canyons of Courchevel Moriond At the Canyon of Indiens, Yepa, the trail’s guardian invites you to encounter the spirits of the nature whilst enjoying a ride down the slope. Look out of the boxes of the eagle, the slalom of the wolf, and the straight under the bear’s claw mark and try to hit the bison feature with your pole. A real adventure!
Another canyon to explore is the Fun Park, which runs alonsgide the blue Ariondaz in the Courchevel Moriond ski area. It’s a wide natural half pipe and youngsters will love the sensation of momentum as they ski up the sides of the hills! It isn’t groomed so it changes naturally as people ski it, giving you 1000 different ways to ride it!
The Family Park Do not miss the Family Park whilst you are here! It is located in the heart of the Courchevel ski area and it features a race down the boardercross, your initiation into boxes and ‘getting air’ on the small jumps, moving up through the medium and large runs as you become a real freestyler… Add a moment of fun to your ski day, but don’t be surprised if you get requests for a repeat!
Courchevel Moriond is the most eastern part of Courchevel and the 3 Valleys offers, without a doubt, the best skiing for families. In sunshine for the whole day, the pistes are wide and gently undulating making them fun to ski. This wide open space helps to build confidence quickly. A special mention for the trails accessed by the Pyramide button lift – they’re wild, unfrequented, and really enjoyable to ski. The green run Praline also deserves a visit – it twists through the terrain which is dotted with snowy mountain huts and is just as fun for the grown-ups as the kids!
Firstly, bravo! Bravo, because the name of the largest ski area in the world didn’t put you off! Big doesn’t always mean difficult… And as proof, we promise you a huge variety of green and blue routes to explore throughout this incredible area. Here are a few examples
Ski among the pines in Altiport Meribel Surrounded by nature amongst the magical forest, the gentle, wide slopes are ideal for enjoying beautiful snowy trails in the sunshine. The area is even more interesting with the ‘Piste des Animaux’ – the animal trail – a green run which is fun and educational. Call upon your five senses to recognise the footprints, sounds and fur of local animals. A sensory slide!
Learning is fun in Meribel-Mottaret
Head over to ‘the heart of the 3 Valleys’ in Méribel to discover the many fun trails accessible to small and more grown-up children! At the Yeti Park your kids can twist and turn through the slalom poles, whizz through the talking tunnels, hit the gongs, and test their skills on the bends and loops... Carry on the fun as you head from the Himalayas to meet the Inuits on the Altiport sector. A morning spot and an afternoon spot = a perfect day!
Brush up against the glaciers
Destination the Mont-Vallon. In the heart of the central valley of the 3 Valleys, Meribel, travel on this mythical summit of the valley. Central, pyramid-shaped when viewed from below, this summit is accessible to the less experienced because it is accessible to pedestrians, both up and down. If you pass by, dare to climb up there, at almost 3000m of altitude (2952m very exactly)! The view on the glaciers is sublime and if the sun shines, it is an ideal place to enjoy a picnic. You can explain the phenomenon of glaciers to your children, and the importance of preserving our beautiful nature to be able to keep them.
A white horizon - towards Saint-Martin de Belleville Head over the border and visit the neighbouring valley with its sublime snow-covered pastures: Saint Martin de Belleville. A reinvigorating escapade and perfect for learner skiers. We award top marks to the Jérusalem piste: one of our absolute favourites in the 3 Valleys for adults and children alike. The terrain is stunning with wide open fields and sherpherds’ huts. It’s also usually in great condition. It’s easy to return to the Méribel valley via the top of Tougnète on the two Saint Martin lifts.
