Escapade 2023 – Successful completion by Paddy, David, Sean and Toby on Saturday 25th February Taking advantage of the great weather and the fact that it was changeover day Paddy, David, Toby and Sean started the 2023 Escapade route in Courchevel Village at the Tovets lift at 08:58. lift and a couple of runs later they reached the official start point in La Tania.  Good progress was made until we ascended the Olympic chair to the Roc de Fer only to find that the Verdet run down to St Martin De Belleville was closed due to lack of snow.  Undeterred, we descended back towards M ..read more

What a Snowy Day!

From around 7am it just snowed, a break about 4pm and then started again. A lot of new snow high up – we certainly weren’t expecting that on first lift this morning. Saulire and Chanrossa areas didn’t open up although Col de Loze did eventually and there was a link to Méribel. Could be an epic day tomorrow. Looking like weather will clear although the off piste avalanche risk could be full on 5/5 black flag day – no doubt they’ll be working all night to secure the ski area. No action pics today – just fun! Some trees with snow on from the chairs today ..read more

ESCAPADE 2023: Mark D on a Snowboard for a Bet!

25 February 2023 From Mark: This was actually my third attempt over a few years. Previous navigational blunders and the drag lift had been my downfall.  I picked changeover day as the queues were very small relative to the rest of the week.  I did wonder if it was actually possible so I was very surprised to complete with so much time to spare.  There were two lift breakdowns, plus some board maintenance. Other than that I was either boarding or on a lift 100% of the time. ESCAPADE 2023 – What’s this all about… The 3 Valleys Escapade was the lift company promotion of visitin ..read more

Noticed this morning at the La Tania Gondola Station – this refers to the multi-year project of piste developments for 2023-2026 and the public consultation / planning enquiry required. Generally it’s all about safety, saving water, improve grooming, develop beginners and “increase comfort and interest for skiers”. So not about any new terrain for example. They start with Anemones piste and details will appear on this website by 17/03/2023. https://www.registre-dematerialise.fr/4501/ Auto translation of this below: Presentation of the public inquiry Attention !

18 February 2023 Despite the Verdet run down to St Martin from Olympic being closed they made it (never duck the rope here even if it looks fine – just out of sight from the ridge the piste turns and faces direct sun for most of the day and can mean a 100m walk down mud – it’s closed for a reason!). A detour via Cherferie chair rewarded them with a trip down the terrific Jerusalem piste and then onwards down to Saint-Martin-de -Belleville).

ESCAPADE 2023 – Doug, Brendan & Henry utilising the Zip Wire from the 4th Valley!

Escapade – Saturday 18 February 2023 Team: Doug (46); Brendan (47); Henry (16).  Background: Doug (your narrator) and Henry have been coming to the 3Vs every year (bar Covid) since 2018 at the UK half term. From the off, I became obsessed with skiing as much of the 3Vs as possible before I even knew about the Escapade. In 2020, we attempted an official Escapade, but I stupidly stacked it on the bumps run shortcut from Loze Est to the Biollay chair after some 20km of downhill, tore my calf, and skied home in shame on one leg. Brendan joined the team in 2022, but terrible co ..read more
