Skiing in St. Martin, Les Menuires and Val Thorens

Val Thorens offers one of the longest ski seasons in the world often running from the months of November to the following May. With altitudes climbing to over 3,200m, 6 glaciers plus the villages of St. Martin and Les Menuires the Belleville valleys really does have something for everyone.

No matter your style Val Thorens has slopes for you to relax and find your mountain legs or to get away from the bustling slopes higher up you can make some secluded laps on the lower slopes down to St. Martin.

There is also the La Masse area which is only accessible via Les Menuires where you can take your pick of the slopes from 2,800m back down to 1,850m.

Getting to the top of La Masse is now via the new Pointe de la Masse gondola, completed in 2021. The stats of this lift are mighty! It’s overall length is 3,319m and the change in altitude between bottom and top is 1,051m. Each cabin has 10 seats and the lift can carry 2,800 passengers per hour. The journey time is a mere 8 mins after which you can stop off at the Restaurant d’Altitude and take in the stunning views before taking your pick of blue, red or black runs to make your descent.
