Winter fun in La Tania
At the bottom of a northern slope in the Alps lies La Tania, it is easily accessible via the descent that winds through the forest. Because it is a northern slope be sure to take into account that in January winter is king. To reach the other areas you need at least two lifts, the fast gondola and either of the chair lifts. With the fast chairlifts you are in Courchevel 1850 in heartbeat or you cross over to the valley of Méribel. In La Tania there are also a number of trails, it is even possible to use the cross country trails to go to Méribel Village. The friendly resort of La Tania is a great way to explore the vast Three Valleys ski area.
The village has its own ski shops, tourist office, supermarket, post office and cash machine, as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars. There is a vibrant après-ski scene and often live music in the evenings – ask your chalet hosts which not-to-be-missed bands are playing during your stay so that you’re sure not to miss out on any of the musical action in one of the many bars and restaurants that the area has to offer. As you know the French gastronomy is to die for.
After a good day on the slopes, people often get together for a good raclette or fondue and then everyone goes about their business before going to sleep: watching a film with a good hot chocolate by the fire, playing games on their mobile like Amazon Slots, Bingo. You can find useful reviews at CasinoRange.com. Or maybe play some nice and cosy board games with the family. And as a car-free village, it is ideal for children who can sled and board safely after the ski-lifts have closed at the end of the day. There is also a park with climbing and swings that are great fun in the snow, and there are plenty of walks nearby that are ideal for non-skiers and those with smaller children who don’t yet ski.
It is one of the top 2 places in the area to learn how to ski, with beautiful long green and blue runs and snow cannons to ensure good coverage all season. A collection of attractive Scandinavian-style chalets in the woods above the village adds to the cosy mountain atmosphere. The cost of lunch or dinner here is lower than anywhere else in the Trois Vallées. And who doesn’t love to enjoy a cosy après-ski with a nice glass of French warm mulled wine? We wholeheartedly agree that this is the best way to warm up after a day in the pristine snow!
