At Chalet Floralie, we are very lucky to have the magnificent Three Valleys literally on our doorstep and as such to have some of the best skiing in France within our ski poles’ reach! Below are listed our top 5 favourite ski runs in the Three Valleys that you have to try!
1. The (Blue) Jerusalem Run in Saint Martin de Belleville
In a magnificent setting with views looking down the valley, this easy track has lovely undulations and a natural landscape, to the extent that you can barely see the lifts. A perfect way to end a day’s skiing – the slope is just a few hundred metres from Chalet Floralie!
2. Covili (Red) Run in Les Menuires
An unmissable red run overlooking Les Menuires below, the Masse is reached via the “Masse 2” gondola lift. From there it drops almost 1000m via Covili, then the (blue) Enverses run.
3. Combe du Vallon (Red) Run in Méribel Mottaret
This run is for powder-hounds and is often where the best snow is found. This exceptionally long track has an incomparable quality of snow. If you like to ski off-piste, you don’t have to venture too far.
4. The (Black) M Run in Courchevel
When it has just been groomed this is a must in the Three Valleys. Overlooking the altiport, the M symbolises the very definition of Courchevel. It’s also a great place to spot a celebrity or oligarch spraying champagne.
5. Les (Blue) Folyères Run in La Tania
Leaving arguably the best until last, Les Folyères has long been one of our favourite ski runs at Chalet Floralie. Accessible to all, the trail that winds between the spruces is best skied as the first run of the day. It’s a fantastic run, and can be more fun if preceded by a perfectly groomed (black) Dou des Lanches, which can be reached from the Dou des Lanches chair lift.
