La Tania sits at 1330m in the middle of the 3 Valleys, between Meribel and Courchevel. The resort is relatively new located in the heart of a pine forest, initially it was built to house the competitors for the 1992 Olympic Games.

La Tania is a quiet village with an attractive collection of accommodation including both chalets and apartments dotted all over the mountainside, due to its location many of the accommodation offers ski in/ski out access. There is one main gondola servicing the resort which takes guests directly up the mountain. At the base of the La Tania gondola there are a few lively bars and restaurants.

La Tania is a popular choice for families who are attracted by the timber clad chalets and relaxed atmosphere, ideal for their children. The resorts is frequently used as a base by groups to explore the 3 Valleys ski area as it allows access to Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens at a fraction of a price as actually staying within these resorts.

At first glance you would presume that the après ski and nightlife would be limited in such a small family focussed resort however there are a few bars placed around the base of the slopes and are all good value for money.

Pub le Ski Lodge is the heart of apres ski in La Tania. The bar serves hearty cocktails and throughout the week they also play host to many live bands which adds to the atmosphere. Many call it the ‘Jagaerbomb Heaven.’

The La Taiga bar is another popular spot with a modern and bright cocktail menu. The bar has plasma TVs displaying all the local sports matches and live music regularly throughout the week. A cosy fire and relaxing atmosphere tempt people who looking for a calmer night.

If you have a non-skier in the group or if you fancy taking a break from the mountain you might want to consider some non-skiing activities that are available both in the resort and close by.

Snowshoeing is a popular sport in La Tania. Take a stroll through the trees on cleared snow paths with an experienced guide to offer local titbits about the surrounding nature and area. You never know what wildlife you will stumble across! Many of the local ski hire shops offer snow shoes for rental.

Tobogganing is always tempting in the Alps and La Tania has made this even more attractive. In the early evening the Troika run is lit up by floodlights. Many of the local shops have sledges to rent or buy.

Swimming is always a popular choice for children and adults alike. La Tania has a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna in the Hotel Montana. This is available for people who are not guests of the hotel at a slight cost. Alternatively the complimentary shuttle bus that runs to Courchevel stops at the Aquamotion pool. This is an enormous pool complex with rapid river slides, salt pool, outdoor pools just to name a few.

La Tania and the 3 Valleys all offer a pedestrian pass which allows pedestrians to take any of the bubble lifts up the mountain. Whether you want to meet the rest of your group for lunch or just bask in the sun, it is a lovely thing to do when in the Alps.

If you are wanting something a bit more adventurous why not try a paragliding flight form the top of the La Tania gondola or head over to Courchevel for some luxury shopping and spa treatments.

La Tania is very much a family-friendly resort and the pistes around the area are sheltered, but as it is quite a small resort, non-ski activities off the slopes are a little limited. If you have a car then you can drive through to neighbouring resorts Meribel or Courchevel where a whole host of further activities are available including the sports centres, swimming pools and climbing walls. In La Tania itself there’s not a great deal to do off the slopes but you could try the following activities:

Husky Sledding
Husky sledding is a fun activity for all the family and a great one to keep the kids entertained. The nearest husky sledding track sits in Le Plantin, and hamlet located between Meribel Village and La Tania. To get there you’ll usually need to get a taxi, although some companies do meet in Meribel Village as well so you could simply get the bus there. http://www.whitetracks.co.uk/Meribel_Dog_Sledding_Husky_Sledding_Sled_Dogs.htm

Snowshoeing
Snowshoeing is a great way to experience the thrill of the mountains away from the groomed pistes. Hiking through the snow with not a sound in the air, you feel far away from the hustle and bustle of resort life and the fresh air is wonderful! Different walking paths cater for different fitness levels and ages of participants so do speak to the guide beforehand to make sure he understands your requirements. The ESF run regular trips and more information can be found here:
