What’s On In Les Menuires This Season?

If you are looking for a wonderful family skiing holiday where you can enjoy some of the best skiing around, as well as a huge range of apres ski activities, then Les Menuires is the perfect resort for you.

We offer luxury catered skiing chalets with our own in-chalet childcare service. This means parents can take advantage of the fantastic skiing conditions with the peace of mind that children are being well looked after and entertained back in your cosy home from home.

Les Menuires is home to our Reberty 2000 chalets and our (new for 2016/17) Les Bruyeres Chalets. Reberty and Les Bruyeres are beautiful satellite resorts of Les Menuires meaning you get to enjoy a traditional Savoyard atmosphere, with all the amenities of Les Menuires.

Christmas in Les Menuires

Saturday 24th December from 6 pm.

For a truly unique Christmas this year why not pack up your bags and head to Les Menuires? You can forget about slaving over a hot stove on Christmas day and let us look after your every festive need!

Christmas Eve is a wonderful time of year and you’ll no doubt want to do something together as a family. In Les Menuires there is lots going on. There is a magical fireworks display, multiple festive Christmas activities, and, of course, plenty of mulled wine available!

For the more adventurous families why not take a look at the resort’s Torchlight Descent? You can watch instructors as well as Santa and his elves take to the slopes when the sun has gone down, creating an atmospheric procession of lights all down the slopes. This all takes place in Les Bruyeres (home to our Chalet Aigrette and Chalet Corbeau). For those staying in Reberty, the action takes place a short 5-minute bus ride away.
