APARTMENTS in la Tania with PV Holidays
The small purpose built ski resort of Courchevel la Tania lies in the Three valleys just along the road from Courchevel 1300 on the way to Meribel. It consists of a small number of apartment blocks and a small village of well built modern chalets in the trees above. As it is in the same valley as the Courchevel ski resorts the snow stays long into April and has some very good trails cut through the trees which makes it ideal for bad light skiing. It is a friendly little place - never crowded - and great for families.
The vast three valley lift system is connected to the other six resorts in two more valleys, Meribel, Mottaret, Val Thorens, Reberty, les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville.
The skiing is some of the best in the world catering for every standard, and the off piste can be exceptional. The snow stays longest on the Courchevel side as the resorts face north and locally get the highest snowfall, but at Val Thorens the Cime de Carron cable car goes to 3200m (10400ft) where good snow is guaranteed all season. There is also some good off piste glacier skiing to 3400m (11000ft).
There is a fourth valley with excellent skiing from the top of the Cime de Carron down to a half way station. In mid season it is possible to ski down to Orelle which links the Chambery-Albertville road with la Norma, the Frejus tunnel and the Italian border fifteen miles away. The straight distance from la Tania to Orelle is 25km (15miles) and can be skied in a morning by intermediates, although the lift to the Cime de Carron can sometimes be half an hour's wait in busy times.
All the resorts in the Three Valleys are serviced by snow cannons and there is usually a skiable piste down to the low lying villages (le Praz, la Tania and St Martin de Belleville) until mid April, when the flowers are starting to come out and it is definitely shorts and shirtsleeve skiing.
