2300m at the top of the Three Valleys, VT is the highest ski resort in Europe and part of the biggest linked ski area on the planet. While it’s a place for people who above all else, love to ski, you’ll also find some of the country’s best après including the legendary Folie Douce, as well as weird and wonderful activities like the 1300m Tyrolienne zipwire. Olde worlde gallic charm it isn’t, but skiers will wake up to find some of the best snow in the Alps literally on their doorstep, and the views over ...
At the summit of the largest ski area in the world and bordering the Vanoise National Park, this is a spectacular place to ski and board. Beginners are well catered for on nursery slopes by the Rond Point des Pistes, where the magic carpets often don't require a lift pass. Kids will love the Junior Park, while the Musaraigne and Campagnols runs in the beginner’s area and the new Deux Combes green are perfect to practice on. With a bit more confidence, take the Pionniers or Plein Sud chairs for some lovely lon...
The après ski here easily rivals other top resorts in the Alps. If you haven't already had the Folie Douce experience, head just under the Plein Sud lifts where the “dancefloor on top of the world” is heaving from 3pm. Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper plonk. Back in town, Rue de Gebroulaz is a hub of lively bars where O’Connells is the local Irish pub and the Frog and Roastbeef is a long-time favourite of Brits (if you can drink the...

"Might be better for good skiers"

Jennifer Furmidge, Chiswick
2/ out of 5
Getting to the beginner slopes from Les Olympiades apartments is a bit of a trek unless you can ski – we were beginners and it took 45 minutes – too much of a chore for us. We didn’t love skiing enough to ski for the whole week and there wasn’t much to do in the apartments so we didn’t stay for the whole week – the rep was friendly though and very helpful with sorting out our early departure. I didn’t like the apartments and there were a few things we weren’t expecting when we got there – there was supposed to be a double bed in the lounge and a bunk bed in the 2nd room (which was actually more like a cupboard!) but the double bed was more like pull out bunk beds and even though we were 2 people in a 4 person apartment there wasn’t much room. In terms of the self catering, it was easy enough to get food from the supermarket and all the restaurants around the accommodation were good – we particularly enjoyed a place that did Chinese / Indonesian / Swiss food which was a nice change from the usual ski resort food.

"No complaints."
