Snowboarding in La Tania
Snowboarders won’t be disappointed in this snow paradise either. You won’t have to travel too far too far to spin some tricks as the Meribel or La Tania-Courchevel skiing area is home to an excellent boardpark for freestylers. There are also half pipes, steeps and drops scattered across the Three Valleys skiing area. Beware of the long flat over to Courchevel though as you might have to walk a little. If you fancy a decent long freeride then head to the tree-lined blue Folyeres, or the Morette Blanche red.
