From the top of the gondola, there are three beautiful, tree lined runs, (green, blue and red) that wind back down to La Tania, the blue of which is serviced by snow cannons all year round to maintain utmost piste conditions right up until the end of the Easter season.

There is plenty of off piste for those not wanting to stick to pisted runs and enough gondolas and chair lifts to make it possible to completely avoid drag lifts. The Three Valleys is also host to seven snowboard parks, three of which are in Courchevel and a plentiful number of snow trails amidst the dense evergreen forests which offer breathtaking views of the mountainsides.

White water raft the rapids of the Doron de Bozel river which runs to the foot of the Bozel valley in Courchevel or try Canyoning, and battle rapids and waterfalls and climb rocky canyons. The fast flowing Doron de Bozel river runs amidst treelined canyons and staggering snow capped mountains, and combined with the glorious blue sky and soaring temperatures, it guarantees a truly spectacular experience! Their centre is located close to La Tania village, (on the left as you start the road ascent up from Moutiers) or you can book the directly at the tourist office.
Or attempt hydrospeed and brave the rapids on a polystyrene body board, whilst desperately attempting not to swallow too much water! (Recommended for confident swimmers only).
