To celebrate the 10 year anniversary for both Stoked and Progress we have decided to organize an epic snow trip together. For this week we will be snowboarding and partying together in the beautiful Les Menuires, France. The trip will take place from 19-26 of March 2022 and it promises to be a week to remember.
The world’s largest ski area
Welcome to the largest skiing area in the world with more than 600 km of slopes! As the name suggests, Les Trois Vallées consists of three linked valleys, each with its own character. Trees clothe the ﬂanks of the Courchevel and Méribel valleys while the terrain becomes much rougher on the sides of Val Thorens and Les Menuires. This varying terrain provides not only a varied and extensive range of slopes but also exceptional oﬀpiste possibilities.
A wintersport paradise for all levels
Les Trois Vallées is a true wintersport paradise for both beginners and the most experienced skiers. Whether on the slopes or in the air in one of the eight snowparks. What many do not know is that there is also a fourth valley, the valley of Orelle, which is often unjustly overlooked. The large gondola above the village of Val Thorens takes everyone to this ‘forgotten’ valley via the ‘Cime Caron’ mountain peak at an altitude of 3200m with a view of some of the highest peaks in Europe.
La Folie Douce
If this name does not ring a bell, it is time to discover what La Folie Douce means. In short, a mind-blowing open-air discotheque in the middle of the slopes with live performances, dance acts and spectacle for an unforgettable après-ski. Located above the village of Val Thorens, it is also accessible to those who only have the ski pass for Les Menuires, although you will have to be careful of the lift closing times to get back to Les Menuires. A taxi ride from Val Thorens to Les Menuires will cost you several hundred euros.
Several districts, each with their own atmosphere
The gigantic winter sports village Les Menuires consists of no less than 11 districts, each with their own atmosphere and appearance. From the more family-oriented La Croisette district to the lively Les Bruyères district, where we are situated. Located at an altitude of 1800m, with direct access to the slopes of the world’s largest ski resort Les Trois Vallées.
From relaxing in the spa to partying into the small hours
Sitting still is not on the agenda here with plenty of activities to discover! Only recently, the Les Bruyères area boasted a real spa complex with an indoor pool where you can enjoy an evening of relaxation at affordable prices. If you prefer to party after a day’s exertion on the slopes, you can go crazy on the cosy après-ski terrace of Plan B where the party starts until the early evening and ends only in the early hours in the Leeberty Club.
Enjoy Les Trois Vallées for less
Whilst Les Trois Vallées is generally known as a ski resort of the more expensive class, in our district Les Bruyères you can always enjoy affordable prices in the bar, in the supermarket and even in the club. The best of both worlds combined!
We stay at a recently renovated residence located in the heart of the Les Bruyères district just 50m from the ski lifts with direct access to shops, bars and restaurants. Well-kept and modern studios and apartments, all with balconies, offer stunning views of the ski slopes or the Vallée des Belleville. Comfort at its best for the avid skier who wants to enjoy nature and the beauty of the surrounding Alpine giants both on and off the slopes.
We love the ocean and we love nature. And although we cannot solve the world problems, at least we can try to help. That’s why we’ve partnered up with Eden Reforestation Projects and are happy to be able to donate 10 trees for booking of our snowtrip!
Furthermore we encourage everyone to travel together. If you don’t know yet how to get to Les Menuires, please contact us and we will try to help you to find a travel buddy(buddies). If there are many people in need of transport we could arrange a bus, so please let us know if you are interested in this!
