Val Thorens

3 Vallées Enduro: the ski event for everyone

Where?

  • The 3 Valleysthe largest ski area in the world. This day gives you the chance to ski the whole area in exceptional conditions.
  • 5 resorts to choose from: Courchevel, Méribel, Les Menuires, Val Thorens or Orelle.

How do we do it?

The events take place on dedicated/secure tracks and areas. The rankings are based on the points accumulated in the special stages. Each team decides whether to take part in some or all of the special stages, depending on its level of skiing and physical fitness.
