Powder potential


St Martin de Belleville’s local slopes are quite exposed to the sun and can suffer later in the season.


Access to the higher parts of the 3 Valleys (including Val Thorens) is relatively straightforward, however, and decent snow-making ensures that you can nearly always ski back to base.

Where to ski in bad weather:

The Belleville valley has very few trees to retreat to in the event of a storm or poor visibility. If you can get there, the nearest real shelter is in the trees above Méribel, on the Altiport side.

Where to head in poor snow conditions:

If snow conditions around St Martin de Belleville are poor, head over to Val Thorens (the highest ski resort in Europe) which normally has the best snow in the entire 3 Valleys. The upper half of La Masse (above Les Menuires) can also be a good bet.
