A number of new ski runs will open in the 3 Valleys in France, already the world's biggest ski area with 600km of piste.
Two of the new trails will be intermediate grade red pistes in Méribel's Roc de Fer area.
The first, La "Gypaète" will be accessible via the Cherferie chairlift. This run will stay "as natural as possible" the resort's management say with plenty of moguls and banked turns ending in a small series of tight bends before joining the Roc de Fer blue run.
The second new run, La "Daguet", will be accessible from the infamous La Face black run. To access it skiers will need to swing left after the first big wall. The run then winds its way down virgin slopes and then goes through the forest, away from the main ski area.
