When it comes to active holidays fit for the whole family and filled with snow and skiing, La Tania is a top choice. This modern resort is located in the French Alps and has become a hotspot for cold weather activities. Powder hounds from around the world flock here, and it’s especially popular among families due to its friendly and safe atmosphere, its traffic-free city centre and its affordable accommodation. |
When it comes to the actual skiing, La Tania offers a superb selection of diverse pistes – meaning no matter your ability, you will be able to find a slope that is well-suited to meet your athletic aptitudes. There’s also the added bonus of its reliable weather conditions throughout the ski season.
And that’s just the beginning. Read on to see why this may be the right resort for you and your brood on your next skiing holiday.
Something for Everyone
• Beginner – Those who aren’t yet accustomed to setting foot in skis will still have more than enough to keep them occupied. La Tania offers two ski schools, the French school and the Magic school. Private and group lessons are available, and both have English-speaking instructors on hand.
Once you’ve gotten the basics down, you can test out your newfound skills on the Troika beginners’ piste, the nursery slopes or the long run that takes you through the woods and down to the nearby village.
• Intermediate – With a plethora of fantastic trails (some up to 8km long) and a speedy gondola that brings you to runs that will take you directly to the Courchevel Valley, skiers will love La Tania’s wonderful intermediate level terrain.
Top Tip: Consider checking out the popular Park City trail.
• Advanced – Skiers looking for a challenge will be very pleased with La Tania’s close proximity to the Courchevel Valley and the town of Le Praz. The former has steep terrain, off-piste trails, ski schools and mountain guides, while the latter offers a fantastic black run that takes you down through the forest.
But Wait... There’s More!
Although it is known for its downhill skiing, La Tania is also a great base for those interested in snowboarding, cross-country and freestyle skiing. In the nearby Verdans area you will find a family-friendly park that freeriders will love. There is also a cross-country trail that links the resorts of Courchevel and Méribel – and La Tania is right in the middle of it.
Whether you and your family have been tearing up the slopes for years, this is your first time touching skis or you’re somewhere in between, the skiing opportunities in La Tania are versatile enough that those of all abilities can thoroughly enjoy a powder-perfect holiday in the French Alps. What are you waiting for? Pack up the kids and your kit and get outside – there’s snow time to waste.
