Les Menuires & St Martin As Alternative Base For Alpine World Championships

Les Menuires and Saint Martin de Belleville are the perfect village ski resorts from which to see all the action at the Alpine World Championships 2023, without the cost and the crowds of the host resorts.

Gateway to Les 3 Vallees, these quieter villages of the Belleville Valley, provide unrivalled access to 600km of pistes, with 85% over 1,800m, and some of the most iconic summits in the Alps.


Witness the thrills and spills of the Alpine World Championships from 6th -19th February 2023 being held in the neighbouring, lift-linked resorts of Meribel and Courchevel, whilst staying in Les Menuires or Saint Martin de Belleville, just two ski lifts away from all the action of the racing in the World Championships.Some description

Escape the crowds and stay in the NEW 4* Higalik Hotel*. Opening on 10th December 2022 the Higalik stands proudly in Les Menuires and boasts panoramic views from the pool and alpine spa as well as a huge terrace for après ski. Or choose to stay in luxury at the new 5* M Lodge* piste-side in Saint Martin de Belleville.

Les Menuires Tourist Office Director Marlene Giacometti adds, “We are excited to have the Alpine World Championships just a valley away. By taking two fast lifts, our guests can soak up the vibe of a world class event, but then ski back to the quieter slopes of the Belleville Valley. We still have some great availability in our resort accommodation for the first week of the Championships and look forward to welcoming our visitors this winter season - it’s just 24 days until we open on 10th December!” 


Dine in style at the Maya Altitude restaurant nestled at 2,300m at the top of the Tougnète chairlift above Saint Martin de Belleville and Meribel. With a focus on Savoyard specialities, choose from two exceptional cooking methods – charcoal grill or Tandoor oven, previously unseen anywhere in the world at altitude.  The exquisite menu is created by Christophe Dupuy, executive chef of the Maya Collection.



Last winter saw the introduction of one of the fastest cable cars in the world, providing speedy access from Les Menuires to the peak at La Masse at 2800m in just eight minutes. A huge decked platform provides 360° panoramic views from the top and as the furthest of the ski areas in the 3 Vallees circuit, offers quiet slopes and varied terrain.
