La Tania Ski Area
La Tania links in to the massive 3 Valleys system - you're 2 lifts away from either Meribel or Courchevel 1850. The stats are massive - nearly 200 lifts with a capacity to carry 260,000 skiers per hour, 2500 hectares of groomed pistes some 600km in length with 293 marked runs and 130km of cross country tracks. There are also 1500 snow cannons, 70 piste bashers, 320 ski patrollers and over 1500 instructors to keep everyone happy.
There are now 3 runs down into the resort, a roller coaster blue straight down through the forest in to the resort, a wide red run with a consistent gradient down to the bottom gondola station plus a new green run winding down through the forest from the top gondola station in to the resort, a great skier/boarder cross track on a first run down in the morning!
The blue Folyères run from the top gondola station is now helped by 38 snow cannons and it's own snow making reservoir.
There's a free drag lift and a short run for absolute beginners in the heart of the resort. For intermediate skiers, a day's skiing / riding to Val Thorens and experiencing the whole Three Valleys is a must - only 4 (or 6) lifts away.
Getting Around La Tania
A free ski bus (a ski pass is now no longer required) runs about every hour to Le Praz, Courchevel 1550, 1650 and finally 1850 (takes about 30 mins to 1850). This runs all day until around 10pm at night - timetable here.
