Ski area Les Menuires/Saint Martin

The lift pass "Les Menuires/St. Martin" enables use of the 160 kilometres of piste and 34 lifts around Les Menuires and Saint Martin. The ski area is multifaceted and has variety for beginners as well as the advanced. There are some deep snow slopes waiting for their fans. The panoramic view is worth the visit, as the ski area comprises some peaks close to 3,000 m altitude, e.g. the Le Mont de la Chambre (2,850 m) or the Le Roc des 3 Marches (2,704 m).

A few quite challenging runs can be found at the Point de la Masse (2,804 m) with e.g. the "Dame Blanche", but ski enthusiasts will also find enjoyment on the valley run to St. Martin. Since winter 2015/16. going down from the mountain station to the valley is possible for all abilities as the new blue piste "La Bouquetin" is available to use. The 12 km long Cime de Caron is the longest slope in the Les 3 Vallées and is located in Les Menuires.

Boarders will find first-class conditions in Les Menuires. Between the districts La Croisette and Les Bruyères there is a half-pipe, quarters and pyramids. A boardercross run is to be found at Le Becca. And the little ones will find ideal conditions to learn skiing in the children's clubs Piou Piou in La Croisette and Les Bruyères.

In the coming winter season 2018/19, the ski area will offer some new features. On December 8th, for example, the "Les Menuires 24 Hours" will take place as a welcome event, with all sorts of festive activities for all ages and skill levels for a 24 hour period. In addition, moonlight trips with the snow groomer as well as a torch-lit hike for children older than 3 are possible, and the "Snow Arena" maze will be opened. Touring skiers will also be pleased, as a few new and exciting tracks are coming this year. Furthermore, the ski area is equipped with cameras, ready to film your runs down different slopes, an opportunity available in, for example, the new Pixel Area in the Snowpark. If you'd like to take a selfie of everyone on the ski lift, this can be done without any effort on the Saint Martin Express chair lift - on this lift you'll be photographed on your way up and can therefore let your creativity run free. On top of that, the efficiency of the lift systems has been improved through investments of around 9.5 million euros and, as a result, the lifts use less energy and trips take less time.
