Courchevel Ski Area, Winter Fun In La Tania
It’s in the heart of the largest ski area in the world, Les 3 Vallées (Tarentaise – Savoie), halfway between Courchevel and Méribel, that we find the young ski resort of La Tania, born in 1990. The resort designed by architect Jacques Labro, is made up of chalets, residences and hotels. Perched at an altitude of 1400 m, La Tania, labelled Station Verte, manages to blend harmoniously into its natural site. We’ll now have you discover this beautiful mountain resort.
The Village Of La Tania, A Friendly Space for The Whole Family
The village of La Tania has its own ski shops, tourist office, supermarkets, post office as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars. There is an interesting music scene in the evening after a good day of skiing. Renowned restaurants are also an essential place of conviviality. People often get together for a raclette or fondue and then everyone goes about their business before falling asleep: watching a movie, playing games on their phone like Jazzyspins.com. The village is also perfect for children with its park, swings and slides. Many nearby walks are possible for non-skiers and those with small children.
A Ski Area Popular with Tourists
The resort mainly attracts families looking for a rejuvenating stay in the mountains. Children can play there freely and in complete safety whether on foot, skiing or sledding. The La Tania ski area offers a few slopes with the Zen Zone located on the snow front (free Troïka ski lift), the Zen Zone Montania located at the arrival of the La Tania cable car, a beautiful green slope (Plan Fontaine) and finally the long blue slope of Folyères. The ski slopes of La Tania provide quick access to the largest ski area in the world: that of the 3 Valleys and its 600 km of slopes!
Activities In La Tania
Whether you are a skier or not, La Tania offers many activities during the day or in the evening. In summer, La Tania, Courchevel, Méribel and Brides-les-Bains, all close to each other, offer a wide range of activities ranging from water sports to hiking at altitude. If La Tania does not have real play areas, a few minutes of skiing is enough to reach its very close neighbour Courchevel where you can find the Western Skipark, Snake Park, Fun Park, Family Park or the Carabosse Piste. So many scripted and furnished spaces for even more fun!
Snowshoeing: The Resort’s Asset
For the practice of snowshoeing, two routes departing from La Tania allow you to enjoy the large wooded areas that surround the resort. There is the Chevreuils circuit allowing you to reach Courchevel – Le Praz (return or shuttle or by the same route). There is also the path to La Clairière des Teppes leading to a beautiful clearing which invites a picnic break.
