About La Tania
La Tania is ideally situated giving very easy ski access to both Courchevel and Méribel. A 12 person gondola lift links the resort with slopes above Courchevel and a chair lift heads up to the Col de la Loze to connect with the Méribel Valley, both journeys take a few minutes from La Tania.
La Tania is the newest resort in Les Trois Vallées. It is located in the Courchevel valley at an altitude of 1350m, in the heart of a pine forest. It is just over a mile by road from Courchevel 1300 and 4 miles from Meribel. Built for the 1992 winter Olympics, the village features "pretty" chocolate box chalets situated in the trees and a pedestrianised centre within easy walking distance from the chalet.
The village is self-contained with a number of bars and restaurants, cinema, tourist office, post office, supermarket and local shops. There is free open-air parking, or underground parking which costs approximately €45 a week.
The local hotel has a small gym with splash pool and sauna which is open to the public. Other activities include ice skating, husky sledges, paragliding, skidoo rides, and snowshoe walks.
Après ski in La Tania is leisurely and informal. The drinks are reasonably priced and the popular "Le Ski Lodge" provides regular live music and a great party atmosphere. Internet and Wi-Fi is also available in the resort.
Travelling around the Courchevel Valley is easy with the free bus service that links all the resorts of the Courchevel Valley to include La Tania. To return to La Tania either take the green run, La Plan Fontaine, the blue run, Les Folyères or the red run, Moretta Blanche. Both the green and blue runs have snow cannons.
Skiing in the Three Valleys:
The Trois Vallées covering Courchevel, Méribel and Val Thorens needs little introduction. It is one of the world's greatest ski areas, with over 600km of marked pistes and 200 ski lifts. The 1230 snow cannons, including snow cannons installed on the lower half of the Folyères run into La Tania, ensure snow cover is maintained to optimal conditions throughout the season.

Given the enormous size of this area and variety of piste, there is something for everyone from the perfectly groomed green runs for the absolute beginner to off piste for the expert. There is a Family park in Courchevel 1850 which has something for everyone to include a variety of rails, kickers, and a ski cross course. Beginners have the use of a free draglift on La Tania's nursery slope where they can learn the basic techniques and there are a number of easy blue runs above Courchevel for later in the week.
