La Tania Ski Resort Review

The skiing from La Tania links in to the massive Three Valleys system - you're only 2 lifts away from either Méribel or Courchevel 1850.

Skiing In La Tania

There are now 3 runs down into La Tania, a roller coaster blue straight down through the forest in to the resort, a wide red run with a consistent gradient down to the bottom gondola station, plus a green run winding down through the forest from the top gondola station in to the resort.

The blue Folyères run from the top gondola station is now helped by 38 snow cannons and it's own snow making reservoir which were installed for the 2001/2 season along the entire length of the run - this has kept it open from the start to the end of the season ever since. New for 2008/9 will be snow cannons on the Bouc Blanc (red) and Boulevard des Arolles (blue) pistes above the gondola thus guaranteeing the link from 1850.

There's a free drag lift and a short run for absolute beginners in the heart of the resort.

For intermediate skiers, a day's skiing to Val Thorens and experiencing the whole Three Valleys is a must - only 4 (or 6) lifts away.
