Skiing enthusiasts needn’t look any further this season for the perfect place to ski: St Martin de Belleville is one of the best resorts around and perfect for both snowboarding and skiing. It is a wonderfully laidback and beautiful location to hone your skills and enjoy the variety of pistes.

The town has charming traditional village vibes, so there is a relaxing après scene after a busy day on the slopes. You can also take in the simply breathtaking views of Three Valleys as you tackle some excitingly challenging terrain.

What’s in Store

Advanced skiers will not be disappointed by the outstanding skiing experience at this fantastic resort. On-piste terrains reach unbelievable altitudes of 2,850 metres, and the 36 lifts in the area make them highly accessible. Off-piste terrains offer a brilliant chance for intermediate skiers to move up to expert level. Being based in St Martin de Belleville is ideal, as it is at the core of a network of slopes that could not be easier to access.

To best enjoy the stunning surrounding area, take a lift to Méribel and admire the view during the peaceful descent via ski.

Delights for Intermediate Visitors

For both skiers and boarders, the Three Valleys are exceptionally diverse in their variety and the vastness of their offerings. Hop on the main lift from the village and be brought up an astounding 2,434 metres before cruising down to Méribel, Mottaret or Les Menuires. Whichever direction you end up heading, you’re always only an easy lift ride away from where you started. Head to the slopes above St Martin to enjoy blissful, gliding descents and, for extra tranquillity, go first thing in the morning when they are at their quietest.

Challenges for Advanced Skiers

The challenges of the Three Valleys are easily accessible via St Martin de Belleville, so there is no excuse not to get stuck into some snowy fun! If you are description to navigate the off-piste routes on your own feel free to get started, but if you’d like company or to explore the hidden gems of the off-piste terrains, ask a local guide from the village to take you on a tour – they will be delighted to assist you.

Tackle the seven formidable black runs which total twelve kilometres, and prepare yourself for a real adventure on the toughest of them all – the two-kilometre long Lacroix piste. For more black-graded skiing in the Three Valleys, head to Courchevel, Val Thorens or Méribel and really push yourself!

This resort is a wonderful location to ski. St Martin de Belleville has excellent slopes for exceptionally keen sportspeople and is the quintessential location for advanced skiers. The chilled-out atmosphere and exemplary views, along with the magical setting of the traditional French village, make this resort the perfect spot for an unforgettable skiing adventure.
