Press kit

Located at the gateway to Les 3 Vallées in France, the world’s largest ski area, the resort of Les Menuires provides access to 8 resorts, 600 km of runs, of which 85% are above altitudes of 1,800 meters, 50,000 meters of vertical drop and some of the most epic Alpine peaks, including La Cime Caron (3,200 meters), La Saulire (2,700 meters), La Masse (2804 meters) and Le Mont du Vallon (2,952 meters). Les Menuires hosted the men’s special slalom event during the Albertville Olympic Games in 1992. Part of the ‘Snow Plan’ and built from scratch in 1964, Les Menuires is now considered a symbol of modern architecture. Typical 1970’s style buildings rub shoulders with more recent designs (Savoyard-inspired chalets, luxury complexes…), to create an unusual and much acclaimed architectural heritage. The resort’s historic ‘Brelin’ cruise liner-style building on La Croisette was awarded the ‘Patrimoine du XXe Siècle’ heritage label in 2003, whilst its contemporary clock tower won the first-ever Prix d’Architecture Métallique in 2000. With the ‘Speed Mountain’ toboggan run on rails boasting 1,000 meters of thrilling twists and turns and ups and downs, the mini KL speed skiing run, the ‘Roc’N Bob’ toboggan run and the ‘Roc’N Bike’ fat biking on snow, adrenaline junkies will get their fix here! Not forgetting the Fun Park and Aqua-Fun Centre with paddling pool, waterslide, ice cave, pools with water massage jets and underwater seating. To know more, have a look at our Press Kit.
