About Three Valleys
The Trois Vallées claims to be the largest ski area in the world and provides exceptional skiing for all standards of skier. The area encompasses Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens - altogether offering a massive 600km of skiing.
PGL groups are accommodated in Brides-les-Bains which is an excellent base for skiing either Meribel or Courchevel. Both resorts are a short 20 minute coach ride away and, depending on your choice of hotel, it is also possible to walk from your accommodation and hop straight on the Brides-les-Bains gondola to reach the centre of Meribel.
Inclusive lift pass: Groups choose from either the Courchevel or Meribel passes as their basic pass, or they can opt to pay a supplement for the whole 3 Valleys area. Meribel are currently waiving the youth group lift pass supplement for pupils aged 13-17 years, however this is restricted to full groups skiing Meribel only.
