Les Trois Vallées (French pronunciation:
[le tʀwɑ vale]; The Three Valleys) is a ski region in the Tarentaise Valley, Savoie département of France. It lies to the south of the town
of Moûtiers, which is partly in the Vanoise National Park. Since 1973, it has been possible
to ski the interlinked valleys using a single ski
pass. Thus, it is the largest ski area in the
world, which is connected solely by ski lifts
and slopes. It claims to have over 370 miles of
ski slopes. Les Trois Vallées has 183 ski lifts,
which can transport 260,000 skiers per hour.
