The purpose built ski resort is very contemporary and practical by design with most accommodation being ski in ski out centred around the snow front. Since La Tania is the most wooded area of the 3 valleys, developments were done in accordance with the environmental protection requirement which has earned them the Green Resort Award.

The 3 valleys offer a wide range of ski runs that are maintained nightly by 80 piste grooming machines. With the minimum altitude for skiing being 1300 meters and the maximum being 3230 meters, a huge 85% of the ski area is located above 1800 meters, however La Tania does what it does best, to provide skiers with an attractive and affordable base where they can explore the highly and immaculately groomed terrain of the largest ski area in the world.  

The ski resort is equipped to accommodate all levels of skiers, right from beginners, intermediate to experts.  A gondola lift from the village leads up to the slopes with the nursery slope at the doorstep. The slopes just above La Tania are wooded and ideal for skiing during bad weather. A little further up this area you will find open slopes. From the main gondola, skiers can take chairlifts or draglifts to go higher up to Courchevel or over to Meribel.
