Les 3 Vallées is considered a magnificent playground for Alpine skiers, but it’s also brimming with wild locations only accessible to ski tourers.
The 3 Vallées resort offers several marked ski touring itineraries. Between 2 and 6 kilometres long, they are accessible to beginners and experts alike.
Starting out from the Jean Blanc car park in Courchevel Le Praz, you’ll find a groomed, safe route that covers a distance of 3.2 kilometres with a 500-metre vertical gain. Discover the vertical kilometre and take part in weekly night-time races, as well as the Plum KV Courchevel.
Set off from Le Hameau du Mottaret and finish at the Plateau des Combes. Experienced ski tourers can head to the Géboulaz glacier via the ski lifts to reach Val Thorens. Put sealskins on to climb to the Col de Gébroulaz then descend to Lac de Tueda via the Glacier du Borgne (option).
Starting in Val Thorens, La Camille was named after one of the resort’s major figures. Rising gently, it features photographs from the resort archives. Get away from it all and learn some history on this 1.5km route with a 280 metre vertical gain, and enjoy plenty of sunshine along the way!
An unmissable Belleville Valley route! Take the gently rising path from Les Ménuires to Lac du Lou. After the Lou mountain refuge, follow the route up to the summit passing the Monfiot and La Masse lakes. Total duration of 4hrs 30mins with a 1,050 metre vertical gain
