Keep the La Tania Tourist Office - Sign the Petition Now!


We’re giving this another push for some more signatures… Sign Here!
The Tourist Office is a valuable resource in La Tania but there are plans to close it down and rely on the services of 1850 and Le Praz. Despite spending hundreds of millions of Euros on the 2023 World Cup as a huge publicity drive and kudos for Courchevel, removing the Tourist Office that really provides the PR, support and help for visitors seems to be a step backwards. There were reports that the ESF were going to provide some kind of Tourist Office support but surely this would be a secondary and hardly independent service. More information here...


Lifts Open on Saturdays this Summer!



Confirmation from S3V and Le Mairie that the Summer lifts will be open 7 days a week in 2021


This is something we've moaned about for 20 years as it ruined a weekend mountain biking break or for those working out here Mon-Fri. It was always considered a transfer day and that's all - common sense prevails for once, well done to all involved.

La Tania Snow Report 11 April 2021



With news of Summer opening and what's happeniung for Winter 2022


Opening Dates & 3V Lift Pass Prices for Winter 2022



Opening Dates and Lift Pass Prices for Winter 2022
A bit of positivity and we can start looking forward to Winter 2022 with the opening dates and 3 Valleys lift pass prices released. La Tania is not included in the above generic Courchevel date but almost certainly will be Saturday 11 December 2021 (unless of course they're thinking (correctly) we're desperate to ski and opening everywhere a week earlier....).
A 3 Valleys 6 day pass rises by 2.8% to €330 for Winter 2022 to ski in the largest ski area in the world and the one day pass price is up from €64.50 to €66, a 2.3% rise.
3 Valleys Season Passes and the 3V one day extensions from a single valley pass have not yet been released and we're still waiting for the Courchevel prices too.


Ski Amis, VIP Ski, Alpine Elements & Silver Ski

No doubt as a direct consequence of no revenue due to the French Government ("no business will fail") closing the ski lifts. It's sad news to all those who had stayed, worked or were going to in the future to these places.
Ski Amis (Catered chalets in La Tania, Les Menuires, La Plagne and Les Arcs plus plenty of self-catering places across the French Alps), VIP Ski (nothing in La Tania but catered chalets in Méribel) and Alpine Elements (ran Hotel Montana in La Tania and lots of properties across the French Alps plus Summer Holidays in Greece too)are now all in Administration.
Hotel Montana did have the bar open occasionally this Winter with the owners family running it.
Come-Ski who have a catered chalet in La Tania took a break for Winter 2020/2021 but will be back next season.
Silver-Ski did not operate for Winter 2020/2021. Their website seems to be permanently closed for maintenance. Ski First Tracks have taken over 2 of their La Tania properties - more here...
Meanwhile Hotel Pomme de Pin is being re-branded as Hotel La Pomme and is now part of the Maison Tournier group - expect the end of €11 Pizza, €5 Stella and €50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot - more here...
