La Tania resort review

Snowboard Guide rating 6 out of 10 “A cheaper yet good option to board the Trois Vallees. It can suffer if there's not enough snow early/late in the season, you may find the only way home is in the bubble.”



Tree runs & some good off-piste

La Tania is an offshoot of the Albertville Olympics village built to house the spectators, it’s steadily grown ever since and is popular with the Dutch and Brits. Built between Courchevel and Meribel, the resort has good access to the Trois Vallees. It’s got a couple of drags, one just for total beginners and a big bubble with bench seats that aren’t big enough to get half your arse on.

At the top of the bubble you’ve got two choices, take the Praz Juget drag to access Courchevel or the Dou Des Lanches chair for Meribel. If you don’t do drags, you can get to Courchevel off the Dou Des Lanches - but the run's flat and you’ll be walking.

If heading for Meribel, make sure you’ve got a Trois Vallees pass, and best to endure the flattish path to reach Meribel proper as if you drop down too soon, you’ll end up at the altiport and the only way out is a flat track or a slow drag.
