Les Menuires/Saint Martin - Activities back to previous page

Leaving Les Menuires or Saint Martin de Belleville to Travel all over the 3 Vallees ski area means going from one magnificent panorama to another, discovering majestic peaks and continually changing horizons and being drawn towards infinite open spaces. This is where the purity of white rivals the depth of blue, where the sky and the earth move apart so as to join up even better.

Walking Snowshoe Outings
Tourists especially appreciate the traditional stone houses and villages. After the paths Sentier Balcon, Praranger- Les Granges and the Promenade du Doron, comes the Sentier de l’Oratoire, created in 1999. It links the villages of Les Granges and Saint Marcel. Like the other paths, it is cleared of snow and maintained by the Town Council. A track links the summit of Le Mont de la Chambre and the centre of the resort. The departure at the top can be reached by Les Bruyeres cable car (purchase of a pedestrian ticket is necessary). Snow scooters and sleigh dog rides possible.

Lugeland
Young and old, on huge rubber rings, slide down the two 200m long pistes, protected by barriers. The pistes are situated in a specially created area. After the joys of the descent, you go up on your rubber ring toboggan on a moving carpet : hoots of laughter guaranteed …. An alternative snow sport for children and adults alike.

Because a mountain holiday wouldn’t be a success without a few toboggan runs, an area has been specially created for tobogganing on rubber rings.

Fun descents on the two specially created pistes : a 200 m long easy piste and a more difficult 150m long piste. And so that the whole experience is fun, at the bottom you get back onto your rubber ring on a moving carpet which will take you back up to the top. Comfort, pleasure and fun.

Rendez-vous a few steps from the resort, between La Croisette and Preyerand (free access using the Preyerand cable car).
