Skiing in La Tania
The local skiing is, of course, amongst the world's best. Head to the left and you're in the Courchevel Valley, to the right and its Meribel then on over to Les Menuires and Val Thorens.
Courchevel's valley provides 150km (nearly 100 miles) of marked trails for all standards as well as excellent off-piste opportunities with one of the many professional guides. The ski area is especially pleasant having one of the highest tree-lines in the Alps, up at 2300 metres (just over 7500 feet).
Beginners will find long wide greens and blues just above the resort, served by a free drag lift.
Intermediates will find probably the world's best selection of blue and red trails in the Courchevel Valley and the easily accessed additional terrain of the 3 Vallées. A fast gondola takes you over from Courchevel 1300 to 1850. One of the best red runs is 'Park City', named after Courchevel's twin-resort in Utah. The runs from La Saulire are some of the most challenging, and it is here too that experts will discover some of Europe's most challenging couloirs - known as 'The Ugly Sisters' and graded black but in some cases nearly 'off the scale' in reality.
Experts have plenty besides to entertain in the Trois Vallées and around Courchevel in particular. Some of the best loved blacks in the valley in-clude the steep and mogul covered Jockeys or Jean Blanc. Another long black mogul run is accessed from the Chanrossa lift after the huge Les Creux bowl. Off piste opportunities are enormous and guides may take you to the empty expanses beneath Le Signal. Heliskiing in Italy is available through the Mountain Guides office, which is also your starting point for courses or tours in glacier skiing, off piste, powder and extreme.
There are several cross country routes. You can reach Courchevel or Méribel on the Bouc Blanc itinerary (the two resorts are each six kilometres away in either direction)
Snowboarding in La Tania
Obviously the Trois Vallees has a vast array of snowboarding opportunities from parks and pipes to huge powder fields for free riders. That's all waiting to be explored, but you don't have to travel far if you don't want to as Courchevel-La Tania keeps its end up with its own snowboard park for freestylers. There's also good beginners terrain for those just learning the sport.
Over in Courchevel there's a larger dedicated railpark under the Plantrey chair. Freedriders will catch some of the best powder turns down below the Dou der Lanches chairs.
Freestylers will have easy access to Moon Park in Meribel, one of the best snowparks of the French Alps.
A Family Park was created in the Verdans area new for the 2009-10 season.
La Tania Aprés Ski
La Tania has an informal atmosphere with the intensity of the nightlife largely dependent on the people in the resort during any given week. The tourist office organises a weekly entertainments programme which usually includes theme evenings, concerts and live music in the pubs.
The centers of après activity are normally the Ski Lodge Bar and the Chrome Bar, quieter alternatives include the bar at the Hotel Montana. It's easy to get over to Meribel or Courchevel however, if you're looking for a wider selection.
Also, there is a free shuttle to Heribel and Courcheud.
