Snowboarding Routes

The Three Valleys has a fantastic choice of Snowboarding Parks, with 7 in total.

Meribel & Mottaret Snowboard parks

There are two terrain parks in the Meribel Valley for riders and freeriders of varying ability, all very accessible from our Meribel chalets.

Meribel Moon Park - Tougnete side

Meribel Moon park has 2 halfpipes. One of them is maintained at competition level. It has plenty of different level jumps, plus 1300m boardercross with a vetical drop of 200m. In addition there is a fun park. To access the park you take the high speed Plan de L'Homme chairlift from La Chaudanne (central liftstation in Meribel). The snow board park is served by its own Arpasson drag lift and is usually kept in really excellent condition for free riding.

Meribel Mottaret Snowpark - Plattieres side

This is the main Snowboard park in the Meribel valley and is very popular with both snowboarders and skiers. Take plattieres gondola from Mottaret and get off at the 2nd station. The board park is situated between Plattieres 1 & 2 station and is served by its own chairlift. It has a vertical drop of more than 300m with 2 half pipes, 2 quarter pipes, 3 tables and 1 spine. It also has a 700m long 4 man border cross plus a test equipment chalet alongside.

Val Thorens

A dedicated snowboard park is to be found alongside the Cascades chairlift. Access from the top of Cascades, then take the blue Dalles piste down. This snowpark features a 500m boardercross, with half-pipe, high jumps, tabletops, fun boxes, rails and lots more. It is also open to skiers, if you want to take a break from your Meribel skiing and head out of the valley. There is also a border cross in the 4th Maurienne valley accessed by the Grand Fond Funitel.

Les Menuires

It has a superb snowboard park by the Boyes piste at the top of the Doron chair. The half pipe is always kept in god condition and the park has been awarded 'Air Space' quality by the French Snowboarders Association. There are easy table and quater pipes plus the long half pipe that sees real action throughout the season when many major competitions are held here. Well worth making the trip over.

Courchevel 1850 - 3 official snowboarding zones.

The best snowboard park in Courchevel is on the Loze sector between the Plantrey chairlift and the Epicea draglift. The Parc Plantrey has baby and half pipes, tables, hips, and more. There is also some interesting and fun natural bumps to be found by Verdons-Biolley under the Biolley chairlift in the area officially know as Zones Thermatiques du Biolley et des Verdons. There is more of this natural terrain under the Pralong chair nearby. Courchevel 1650 also has good snowboarding terrain with good natural halfpipes and with this area now serviced by high speed chairlifts (all the drag lifts have been replaced) it makes it very accessible to entry level snowboarders.
