Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Piste Lists 3 Valleys Area

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi All
I was wondering if there was a list of all the pistes for the 3 valley area in France.
I was hoping to have a table of all the green, blue, red and black runs so I could tick them off as I completed them.
Does such a thing exsist ?
Thanks
Alan

Welcome..

Just get the piste map and that would enable you to tick off the pistes as you do them

@Alan Ski, welcome snowHead to snowHeads. If someone has a list I'm sure they will be along shortly. Otherwise, you could simply cross them off a piste map.

A fun challenge to do them all.

Hi

I have had a look at the piste map but it covers such a large area when you print it out on A4 at home its unreadable.

I will obviously use one when we go on our family Ski trip over Christmas but some of the fun of it is the preparation, checking the forecast, snowfall and planning the routes.

My 11 year old daughter has been twice before but still reverts to snow plough on more difficult slope, so was thinking of easing her in by doing all the greens, then the blues, then the reds over the week. Very Happy

I always warn women there are two types of men — those that must ski every single run, and will never ski the same run twice; and those that once they find a good run will happily ski it all day.

The first guy is the type you need for the best genetic material; but the second guy is the best for a long-term marriage Laughing

@Alan Ski, given the size of the area it's not that straightforward to "do all the greens, then all the blues".

Try the smartphone app though, that might have a thing you can tick off runs that you've done.

That's logistically impossible to do. While you can definitely ski across all 3 valleys using nothing but blues (not always the most optimal route), greens in different areas are not linked so you will need to use blues to connect.

The piste map for each resort has a main map for its lift pass area as well as the whole 3v piste map in the reverse. That would make your exercise easier. So..you could pick up one as you pass through Courchevel, Meribel, lesmenuires/st Martin, and finally, VT. There are however one or two runs I would never recommend or want to do more than once-“Ours” in Meribel for example.... (flat).

@Alan Ski, there a book called Snowfinder France published around 2007, inot sure if its been updated, I bought (in about 2009) it for similar reasons to you to check how challenging a run might be, there might be some missing runs or ones that have been reprofiled.

@Perty, blvd Cumin can also be particularly painful, although I seem to remember hearing that it had been slightly reprofiled.

This plus even if it were possible commuting from say Courchevel to Val T by green run would be unspeakably tedious.

Even if you could avoid repeating any piste, and ignoring the blacks, there are something like 300 pistes; so over say 6 x 8-hour days you need to complete one every 10 minutes (with no breaks and including queuing/uplift time). Is she aiming for the Olympic Downhill team? Very Happy

I must confess @Alan Ski, that I’m not sure whether your quest is really worth it.
-My experiences of 11 year olds is that improve hugely compared with adults year on year, so your concern for your daughter may well be overtaken by her increasing confidence and strength.
-it’s easy to get hung up on the grading of a run, (been there myself). The reality of the 3v is that you can’t “do all the greens” before advancing to blue runs. It is pretty easy to get about on blue runs exclusively, though sometimes the blues can be a hard (eg skiing down to the Chaudanne in Meribel from the Courchevel side), compared with a nice open quiet red, such as Pramint -above St Martin.

Where are you staying? It might be worth asking for recommended runs, plus those to a avoid!
