Les Menuires Ski Holidays - Excellent Value Ski Area
The skiing in Les Menuires radiates out from the town in all directions so it poses a tough choice of which direction to head in at the start of the day. With over five different tailor-made passes to choose from, there really is something for everyone in this great resort.
The les Menuires and St Martin ski pass gives you skiing on over 160 km of piste serviced by over 40 lifts. This is roughly a third cheaper than the Three Valleys ski pass. There is also the option of the Belleville Valley ski pass which allows skiing on over 300 km of piste serviced by 75 lifts, it is however only about 5% less than the Three Valleys pass. The Three Valleys pass gives you access to over 600 km of piste and also access to L'Espace Killy, La Plagne, Les Arcs, Les Saisies and Pralognan..... A staggering total of over 1,500 km of some of the best skiing in the world!
Last Minute Ski Holidays In Les Menuires - Great For Beginners
The ski school Le Ecole de ski Français has created a beginners' village which is away from the main pistes to teach the basics in an enclosed and safe environment. There are also six free lifts allowing beginners to access the nursery slopes without having to pay a penny. There is also the possibility of buying the special beginners ski pass at a very low price allowing access to 11 important lifts giving access to the best beginner slopes throughout les Menuires.
Cheap Ski Holidays In Les Menuires - Laid Back Apres Ski
For something a bit different on your cheap skiing holiday, snowshoe outings are available as well as off-piste tours around the Three Valleys skiing area.
The Snowpark, which is 400 metres (450 yards) in length is equipped with about ten different elements for snowboarders (or surfers, as the French prefer to call 'boarders) to enjoy.
Events are staged regularly at the Park, which is easily accessible at the junction of the two largest skiing sectors, near the da Becca chairlift, with a separate half pipe by the Club Med building and to the left of the Boyes piste. The Becca Park has snow cross, eight slides, rails, tables, hip and quarter pipe.
Both the ski schools offer snowboarding lessons. The ESF's six-full-day or six-half-day courses include tuition in slaloms, moguls, off piste.
Les Menuires is somewhat off the beaten track for après ski hedonists, but there are plenty of choices if you are not desperate for a wild time every night! The most popular establishments include La Mousse, with the Leeberty disco the main late night spot.
Ice skating, snowmobiling and the cinemas are all available in the evening.
Non skiing attractions are centred on sports or healthy relaxation in les Menuires. There are two health centres, le Capricorne in the quarter of la Croisette and 'l'Espace Tonic' in the quarter of les Bruyères, both have hamman saunas, regular saunas and sunbeds. Le Capricorne also offers massage and a beauty parlour whilst l'Espace Tonic also has a gym.
There is a public outdoor heated swimming pools and a popular outdoor ice rink whilst out on the snow snowmobiling is available. Parascending and microlight flights can be taken above. Other facilities include a cinema in les Bruyères quarter which shows English language as well as French language films sometimes.
A new leisure centre opened for winter 2005-6 with everything from Finnish saunas, jacuzzis, hydro-massage to swimming pool and fun pool and a state-of-the-art gym.
Relatively unique to the Valley are guided winter tours of local Baroque sites, taken by a guide from the French Society of National Historical Monuments. The tours are offered weekly and take up an afternoon.
There are over 30 restaurants and bars in les Menuires, most of them relaxed affairs. However arguably the best restaurant, marginally, is possibly the Latitudes hotel's own, with La Mascotte also receiving repeat mentions in a number of guides and other gastronomique choices including la Bouitte. The restaurant in the hotel "Ours Blanc" also has a reputation for its quality gastronomic food at fair prices.
Other good choices are La Ruade in Preyerand for Savoyard ambience or the L'Etoile restaurant.Fondue and raclette evenings are organised in some of the 13 mountain restaurants above the resort, followed by torch lit descents back to les Menuires.
The Medz-e-ty in the Preyerand quarter offers activities, shows and a variety of dining options.
