When is the best time to ski Les Menuires?
Les Menuires has a fair share of lovely sunny slopes, and the best conditions can usually be found earlier in the season during January and February when snow is aided by lower temperatures. However, with top altitudes at soaring peaks of 2850m, the tourist office has been confident enough to offer their own ‘Snow Guarantee’ all season. For late season skiing get the lifts up the Col de la Chambre and ski over to the snow-sure glacial areas of Val Thorens to find the very best snow in Europe’s highest resort. A direct link to the huge 3 Valleys and slopes facing all directions means there is never really a bad time to make your way over. 411 snow cannons heavily cover the slopes above the resort which will keep things together in case there are delayed deliveries of fresh powder.
