Courchevel & La Tania have announced that lifts will be free for Summer 2018!!!

 
For Summer 2018 the La Tania gondola lift was once again FREE and open every day except Saturday (9.30am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 4.45pm) from Saturday 7 July to Friday 31 August.

Tougnette 1 & 2 in Méribel opened EVERY DAY for Summer 2018 (yes France, people do come out for weekends, it's not purely a changeover day with nothing to do!).
 
Adult prices for Méribel Mountain Biking for Summer 2018 are €17.50 for a full day, €82 a week or €260 for the Summer season.
 
Pedestrian passes are €7.50 for one trip up or €12.50 for two trips, €17.50 for a full day, €52.50 a week or €160 for the Summer season.
 
Remember - Winter season passes are valid in Summer too with a single valley pass being upgradeable to 3 Valleys for €49 for the whole Summer (and of course remember there are free lifts in Courchevel and La Tania).

 

 

 

All Tariffs and Options listed below... (Main Season prices quoted unless stated)

 

Discounts for Winter 2019

The main news for Winter 2019 is that a trip to Aquamotion is included in 2-day and above Courchevel Passes (not season passes) and the "Wellness 3 Valleys Pass" includes 2 trips to Aquamotion.
 
The Courchevel 6-day pass is now €272 and the standard 3 Valleys 6-day pass €306 (a €34 difference) so if you're not going to Aquamotion and will ski another valley just once it's cheaper to get a 3 Valley Pass (you used to have to visit a second time to make a 3V pass worthwhile).

 

The DUO pass discount introduced from Winter 2014 continues (2 adult passes, min 6 days, same type and duration, bought together). This for example, gets a 2019 Three Valleys 6 day pass for €296 as opposed to €306.
 
Introduced from Winter 2013 and continuing since, is a discount if 3 are more passes of the same type, dates and duration (min 6 days) are bought together. The “Tribu” discount works out at around 6%. A 2019 Three Valleys 6 day pass is €291 instead of €306 and it does include Season Passes.
3 x Tribu 3 Valley Season passes bought together saves €180.

 

The family pass that was re-worked back in 2013 remains so all pay the same price from 2 to 7 children skiing with 2 parents. Again they must be of the same type, dates and duration (min 6 days) and bought together. Note that kids in this instance are under 18 rather than under 13 for a “normal” kids pass (and you don't have to ski together!).
 
So in 2019 two adults with four kids who are aged 13 to 17 (buying 6 x 6 day 3 Valleys passes pay €1468.80 with a family pass rather than €1836 – a saving of €367.20

 

There is a €12 discount (€50 instead of €60) when buying a 1-day 3 Valley pass for a Saturday, so it is actually cheaper to ski The 3 Valleys than one! NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY FOR PURCHASES ON-LINE AND THE DISCOUNT IS NOT AVAILABLE AT TICKET OFFICES. (2019 Prices TBC)
 
In 2013 the Courchevel residents preferential rate on season single valley passes was extended to include 3 Valleys season passes for the first time with a 50% discount. From 2014 a Workers 3 Valleys season pass was introduced giving a a 30% discount More information on Season Passes here
 

 

3 Valleys Wellness Pass - 2019 Prices

New for Winter 2019 to include 2 trips to the Aquamotion Centre in Courchevel 1550. An adult 6 Day Wellness Pass is €369 (compared to a 3 Valleys standard 6 day pass at €306).
 

 

3 Valleys Transferable Season Pass

For the 1st time in 2017 a new transferable package (used by different people, but not simultaneously), The 3 Valleys Transferable Season Pass was available for €5,600 (Winter 2019 TBC)

 

Launched in Winter 2016 - The Superpass. 2019 Prices TBC

Introducing the Alpine Legends Superpass

 
New for Winter 2016 was a lift pass covering the huge ski areas of The Three Valleys, Paradiski (Les Arcs / La Plagne) and Espace Killy (Tignes / Val d'Isère).
 
With 5 glaciers, 1300km of pistes, 391 lifts for 6, 7 or 8 days for 2017 it costs €348, €398 & €448 - no other discounts.
 
A 3 Valleys Season Pass did get you 3 days at Shiga Kogen, Japan and Mt Buller, Australia, 2 days in Paradiski or Espace Killy plus 3 sets of 2 day passes for Vail Resorts USA which include Vail, Breckenridge, Park City, Canyons, Heavenly, Kirkwood (a personal favourite) & Northstar. Some La Tania locals did this in 2017...

 

More Skiing than anywhere else, GUARANTEED

 
"The 3 Valleys guarantee you the largest number of open connected runs in Europe for the whole season"

Of course there's some Ts & Cs but it's a very impressive claim - Why would you go and ski anywhere else?

Hands Free Passes

Introduced for Winter 2005/6 were automatic hands free lift passes that operate turnstiles as you approach (you keep the pass in a left hand side pocket). A photo is only required for season passes and the free under 5 and over 75 passes (for Season Passes it is taken by the cashier digitally and can be checked on hand held monitors at lift stations - it's not on the pass itself.)
 
Plenty of people get caught using passes not belonging to them every year, any unusual patterns of riding lifts etc alerts the lift companies and automated facial recognition as well as manual spot checks are made. So they can track you big brother style but this can also help in rescues and season pass users can be told the amount of vertical they've skied and number of lifts ridden in the season.

 

The hands free turnstiles at the La Tania Gondola

 

A re-chargeable pass that can be charged up via the internet for an additional 3 Euros is now available, therefore no requirement to visit the lift pass office ever again! Passes can be replaced if lost (less an admin fee) too.

 

 

 

Buying your lift pass

The deposit charge for re-chargeable passes was removed from Winter 2017.
 
Lift passes are available all day from the Gondola lift pass office in La Tania from 08:45 to 16:45 (open to 17:05 from 10 Feb 2018) or available on-line. Photos are only required for season passes or the free under 5 / over 75 passes - the lift staff take these photos and store them electronically (they can be checked at lift stations on screens and hand held units).
 
All staff speak English and they do take all major credit and debit cards.
 
It used to be possible to buy passes for the next day from 3:30pm and get several runs in at the end of the day for "free" but this has now ended as passes can be bought well in advance and are validated the first time they are scanned at a turnstile. A once only trip up the Gondola can be purchased for €10 (or €16 up Dou Des Lanches too - 2019 Prices TBC) if you fancy one run the day before your pass starts though. Or get a mini-pass to use the La Tania gondola only. Lifts down are free by the way...
 
These individual once only ride up specific lifts mean that you can get back from Méribel Village without purchasing a Three Valleys extension - ask for a Golf Chair ride and a Loze Chair ride (use the free drag to get high enough for the Loze Chair). Cost is €16(2019 TBC) and cheaper than a taxi...
 
Note however that your chalet staff, rep or apartment agency may sort passes out for you, have included it in your deal and have them delivered to you on the morning of your first ski leaving you without any hassle or queuing.

The Courchevel Valley Pass

Gives you access to all the lifts in 1850, 1650, 1550, Le Praz and La Tania - still a huge area to ski and will usually be fine for beginners. It is possible to buy 1 day extensions to make it a 3V pass (Adult €37 for 2019) and this may be an option if you only intend to head over to the Méribel side once in the week (Méribel can be a lot sunnier in late afternoon in January than the Courchevel Valley).

 

 

The Three Valley Pass

Lets you use any of the 185 lifts and is recommended for most skiers and boarders to explore the entire 600km of pistes throughout Courchevel 1850, 1650, 1550, Le Praz, La Tania, Méribel, Mottaret, Méribel Village, Val Thorens, Orelle, Les Menuires, St Martin de Belleville- even Brides Les Bains.

 

 

Other Ski Pass Agreements - 2019 TBC

A 3 Valleys Season Pass gets you a 3 days at Shiga Kogen in Japan and Mt Buller in Australia plus 2 days in Paradiski or Espace Killy. Also 3 sets of 2 day passes for the Vail Resorts in the USA which include Vail, Breckenridge, Park City, Canyons, Heavenly, Kirkwood (a personal favourite) and Northstar amongst others.

 

 

 

The Family Pass 2019 - 2 adults and from 2 to 7 kids, Minimum 6 Days

All skiers pay the same price (eg €244.80 for a 6-day 3 Valleys - 2019 main season instead of €306).
 
They must be of the same type, dates and duration (min 6 days) and bought together. Note that kids in this instance are under 18 rather than under 13 for a “normal” kids pass and that separate passes are issued, you don't have to ski together!
 
So in 2019 two adults with four kids who are aged 13 to 17 (buying 6 x 6 day 3 Valleys passes pay €1468.80 with a family pass rather than €1836 – a saving of €367.20

 

 

Pedestrian Pass. Prices 2019 TBC

For access to the main gondolas and cable cars. Note that from 2005/6 the ski bus no longer requires any pass - it was very rarely checked anyway.
 
Pedestrian Pass costs €23.50 per day or 6 days for €72.50. You can have one ride up the La Tania gondola for €10 (or €16.50 up Dou Des Lanches too) if you fancy lunch at the Bouc Blanc or Roc Tania... All descents are free.
 
(Folie Douce via Saulire Express is €12)

THE 3 VALLÉES LIBERTÉ PASS or FREEDOM / OPTION PASS. Prices TBC for 2019

This is now a pay as you go pass - debits from your bank account when used and updates as you cross in to another valley. There's a 10% per day discount on the single day rate of Courchevel or Three Valleys prices.
 
€12 saving on Saturdays on The Three Valleys (but anyone can get that on-line).
A free 3V day on your 9th day of skiing and then a free day every 6 days after that - that's 2 free days after spending over €700.
Always based on Adult full day prices (no kids or afternoon only discounts).
Admin charge on top of all this of €30 per year - will be automatically deducted the year after too!
 
Generally not worth having unless you hardly ever ski some consecutive days (and not Saturdays as anyone can get the €10 discount online). If you take advantage of the free days note that a season pass starts looking attractive after only 21 days.

FREE LIFTS 2019

Troïka in La Tania, plus Envolée, Mickey, Belvédère, Petite Bosse, Roys, Bellecôte, Etoiles, Cospillot and the 4 Practice ZEN zones. Note Belvédère in 1650 is no longer a free lift from Winter 2018.
 
 

 

FREE SKIING

As well as the free drag lift Troika in the centre of the resort for absolute beginners and a further 7 free beginners drags around the Courchevel Valley (see above) - All under 5s and over 75s ski free everywhere (proof of age and photograph required to obtain the pass).

 

 

Season Passes

Discounted season passes for workers and residents are now available for the 3 Valleys as well as the single valleys. A fair bit of bureaucracy and proof of income and/or income tax paid locally required to get these, not easy to fiddle as in years gone by and there are plenty of checks for the remotely stored photo - lifties have WiFi enabled hand held terminals to do spot checks in the queues.
 
If you're paying full price and going to ski most days then it's worth getting a Three Valley pass (as long as the people you ski with have got them of course!). It saves the hassle of getting extension passes and you will be encouraged to ski more. Note however, that multiple extension passes can now be bought in advance, loaded on to your pass and then they are triggered by simply using another valley lift turnstile.
 
Residents preferential rates now include the Three Valleys season pass option from 2013 and in 2014 a Three Valleys season pass option was introduced for workers too.
