Courchevel’s little sister La Tania has grown up to be an attractive and welcoming place since her inception in 1992 for the Winter Olympics. On the last leg of the 80 minute journey from the airport into the village, you’ll pass the perilous ski jumps in Le Praz before entering the forest in which the village of La Tania nestles. It's a fantastic location for skiing too as you can be in the Meribel valley within just 2 lifts, definitely an advantage for exploring the 3 valleys.
The heart of the village is car-free, making it quiet and an easy place to wander, especially with children. The bottom of the piste is lined with attractive chalets and a popular selection of French and English-owned bars, restaurants and souvenir shops.
There’s great access to the other four villges in the Courchevel valley using the free shuttle uses. Entertainment could include iceskating, shopping or bowling up in 1850, not forgetting good old bumboarding which you can do closer to home. La Tania is also a short bus journey from Aquamotion with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa and wellness, indoor climbing wall and much more...
There is a weekly entertainment programme in resort which our Guest Services Managers will keep you updated on. During peak weeks you can usually expect to see some impressive firework displays! There’s a mixture of French and British-owned bars, often featuring live music during après-ski or later in the evening. There are a number of restaurants varying in price and menus, ranging from take-away crepes or chips, via pizza and steak up to Michelin-starred fare.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a medical centre but no pharmacy in La Tania so please make sure you pack a supply of essential toiletries and medication to take to resort.

This pretty, family-friendly resort boasts delightful intermediate pistes. La Tania has easy access to neighbouring Méribel and the rest of Les Trois Vallées. For beginners there are two magic carpet lifts for first ventures into skiing, moving up to long, winding greens and the undulating blue Folyères when they progress to the gondola. For intermediates La Tania also offers a good selection of quieter runs and, within two lifts, access to the whole of the Courchevel valley. For experts, there are long steep blacks leading down to Le Praz, and in the ‘Dou des Lanches’ sector, where there’s usually some untracked off-piste. The tree runs into Le Praz and La Tania are the best place in all the Three Valleys to spend your time in snowy weather.
If you're a keen skier and want to go into the Three Valleys even once during your week, then it's worth opting for the Three Valleys pass which gives you access to the largest ski area on Earth! There are also family versions, pedestrian passes for non-skiers, discounts for children and seniors and freebies for the very young and err... 'extra-mature' skier!
