We’re off to another bright and sunny week in the Espace Killy and Les 3 Vallees!
The forecast for both areas looks clear through Wednesday, and (dare we say it?) the update later this week just might include snow. Wouldn’t we like to keep the best of both worlds: balmy, sunsoaked temperatures (just above zero at the summit and around 10 degrees down below) AND some nice, fluffy snow?
In the meantime, Courchevel has begun to open the lower portions of the resort, meaning that there’s still some untouched snow left on 1650 pistes. If you squint hard enough, you can even spot some decent places to sneak off-piste amidst the sunshine. For a live glimpse into what’s going on in Les 3 Vallees, check out the live cam on Val Thorens.
These new openings, accompanied by the FIS Men’s Alpine Ski World Cup in Val D’Isere, Women’s World Cup in Courchevel, and Ibiza Rocks the Snow in Meribel (just to name a few) all happening this week, indicate that there is plenty of activity going on in resorts across the Tarentaise as the winter mindset sinks in. With Christmas less than 10 days away, think of how you can make this season memorable: by giving your loved one the gift of a lifetime with one of our heliski, reverse heliski, Mickey’s Ears half day experience, or off-piste guiding packages. As the season is just beginning, now is the time to make your reservations. Visit our heliski packages page today for descriptions and price lists and take the leap—we’ll see you in the skies!
