The Three Valleys online
The most useful apps and resort information for your ski holiday in the Three Valleys…
A one-stop-shop for the most useful links and resort information for your Three Valleys ski or snowboard trip.
First things first, where’s the WiFi?!
Handily, the Three Valleys piste map features all the Free WiFi spots. There are around 35 in total, at the major lift stations and in resort buildings such as the ‘salles de pique-nique’ and gondola lift stations. From these spots you can share photos, tag friends and use the free 3 Vallées app to find your way around.
The 3 Vallées app is highly interactive and you can search open or closed runs, snowparks, blues, reds etc, highlight the restaurants and click for an introduction and useful information for each dining spot. You can even search by Michelin star restaurants (see also our guide!)
Three Valleys Webcams
Another useful feature of the 3 Vallees Map is the webcams, so you can see how the weather’s looking in another valley and plan your route accordingly. Simply click on the webcam and a live feed pops up!

Free photo points

The ‘couloirs’ (very narrow gullies) from the top of La Saulire between Meribel and Courchevel are the stuff of legend… And now you can get a video of your ski down! There are two couloirs you can ski – one into Meribel and the other into Courchevel.

Top 5 Three Valleys photo spots
The Three Valleys is prime territory for photography, with huge expanses of white peaks, tree-lined pistes, sunny terraces, powder runs, tobogganing, and fantastic après ski!
St Martin de Belleville
Le Corbeleys is a friendly restaurant with quirky décor and fab views from the sun loungers. Soak in the views and enjoy a drink.
Take a stroll up to the Notre Dame de la Vie church. With stunning views, this baroque beauty makes for a great shot of the local architecture.
La Masse, 2804m altitude
Presiding over the wilderness… A visit to the Three Valleys wouldn’t be complete without a snap of the beautiful carved ibex (or “bouquetin”) at the top of this iconic peak.
On the peaks of Saulire, Vizelle, Chenus and Biollay you’ll spot the bold works of art by Richard Orlinski and Julien Marinetti which add vivid colour to the monochrome backdrop. Get creative with your camera!
Back to the Wild
Beautifully carved, this gorgeously tactile sculpture is located at the summit of Roc de Tougne in Meribel. Admire the views of Mont Blanc in the distance!
Don’t forget to hashtag #meribel #backtothewild, your pictures might be published!
In the frame
