Skiing in St Martin de Belleville
The Three Valleys is a truly HUGE ski area, but some of the best skiing both on-piste and off-piste can be found on the doorstep of St Martin de Belleville.
Whisking you up to mid-station 35% faster than previous years is the brand-new for 2021/20 St Martin 1 gondola. From mid-station take the still new 6-person St Martin Express chairlift, and in just 15 minutes you’ll be at the top of the mountain surveying the vast extent of skiing available to you here in the Three Valleys!
Beginners can start on the dedicated nursery slope with two magic carpets, running parallel to the main gondola out of St Martin de Belleville. Beginners can then progress onto the easy blue runs from the top of ‘Tougnete’ and start to explore the rest of the epic Three Valleys. The Grand Lac blue from the top of the "Granges" chairlift is one of the best runs in the Three Valleys in our opinion!
Intermediates will find endless opportunities to explore above St Martin de Belleville and on to the whole 3 Valleys. There are extensive intermediate slopes within easy access because of the fast and efficient lift network. The slopes above Les Menuires on the west-facing side have plenty to offer intermediate skiers and are mostly blue and red runs.
Expert skiers and snowboarders will be entertained with a choice of moguls, steep blacks and some of the best off-piste in the world in just about every corner of the 3 Valleys. Head to the upper slopes of La Masse to avoid the crowds and to find steeper slopes. It also has some of the best snow in the 3 Valleys. Also, why not take a guide out for the day to show you the best pistes and the deepest powder stashes...
Thanks to the various “Liberty Ride” areas created around the 3 Valleys, families, friends, experts and learner skiers can enjoy skiing in specially selected areas that are safe to ski off-piste without a guide. Liberty ride on la Masse: access via la Masse 2 gondola, Liberty ride on Ariondaz near St Martin: access via the St Martin 2 chairlift, pylons Liberty ride: access via the Sunny Express chairlift.
