What’s On in La Tania & The 3 Valleys – The 2017 Diary

and a “normal” week in Winter…

Saturday: Full English Breakfast in the Ski Lodge then out to ski on empty slopes for the lucky few. The SSSC (Sad Saturday Soccer Club) meet at 5pm in the Ski Lodge to watch the footie results come in on the vidiprinter on Sky and check out the new arrivals in resort.

Sunday: A free welcome drink outside the Tourist Office and the first lively Happy Hour of the week plus live music tonight at La Taiga

Monday: Buy a shot and win a pair of skis or a snowboard in the Ski Lodge with Les Deux Roux

Tuesday: Biggest night of the week (it’s chalet girls day in bed tomorrow) with the best live bands in the Three Valleys at The Ski Lodge – See The Bands in the Alps page.

Wednesday: Après ski live music plus it’s usually chalet staff day off so book early if you want to dine out anywhere – make a night of it and end up at Dick’s Tea Bar (now O’Sullivan’s) Méribel.

Thursday: Live music in the Ski Lodge at Apres Ski with Bring Your Sisters.

Friday: Last night – packed Happy Hour, live music at Après and usually later at La Taiga too.
