resort info

The old stone farming village of Saint-Martin de Belleville is full of character, in complete contrast with neighbouring Les Menuires, a purpose-built resort with a somewhat controversial architecture, and the above-perched snow-sure resort of Val Thorens.

 

Saint-Martin de Belleville is a lived in, unspoiled charming village with an old church (floodlit at night), small square and buildings of wood and stone.

 

Saint Martin de Belleville has a quiet location, a chic atmosphere and a good variety of bars and restaurants away from the maddening crowds.

 

Saint Martin de Belleville new 8-person gondola whisks you to the ridge overlooking the valley of Meribel.

 

Why St Martin de Belleville?

·          Real village life in a chocolate box village

·          Quick access to massive 3 Vallees area

·          A peaceful base

SAINT MARTIN SKI AREA

St Martin is a little alpine village which is linked to the large 3 Valleys ski area so you get the best of both worlds. Saint Martin de Belleville is blessed with lightly wooded slopes unlike its neighbour ski resort Val Thorens. There are fast lifts that get you to the slopes of Les Menuires and Meribel.

 

SAINT MARTIN BEGINNERS

Beginners can start on the nursery slope from the centre of St Martin de Belleville village (running alongside our featured residence – Les Chalets du Gypse) and then progress on to easy blue runs from the top of ‘Tougnete’ and explore the rest of the Three Valleys. There are 5 free beginners’ lifts in the valley.

 

SAINT MARTIN INTERMEDIATES

Intermediates will find endless opportunities to explore the whole Three Valleys and St Martin de Belleville. 3 Valleys has extensive intermediate slopes with big lift networks. Locally, at Les Menuires the slopes above the village on the west-facing side have lots to offer and are all pretty much blues and reds.

 

SAINT MARTIN EXPERTS

Advanced skiers and boarders won’t feel left out with a choice of moguls, steep runs or off-piste in just about every corner of the ski area. The Orelle area above Val Thorens is particularly worth a try. Head to the upper slopes of La Masse for steeper slopes. It also has some of the best snow in the 3 Valleys at La Masse. There is also a huge amount of off piste runs within the 3 Valleys.

 

Enjoy a non-groomed area! It’s now possible to enjoy safe powder skiing on nongroomed pistes in Les Menuires. Thanks to the various « Nature Zones » created on the ski area, families, friends, expert or learner riders can enjoy skiing in an area reserved for great sensations! New in Les Menuires for 13/14, 100% natural, 100% pleasure!
 

SAINT MARTIN SNOW COVERAGE

Les Menuires and Saint Martin de Belleville (highest altitude 2850m) benefit from an exceptional natural snow cover. This is reinforced by more than 410 snow cannons covering 50% of the pistes. Two summits (at 2700 m and 2850 m) benefit from artificial snow, from the top of the pistes right down into the centre of the resort. The production of artificial snow starts in November and continues throughout the winter.

With its untouched nature, La Vallée des Belleville is an ideal place for walks or snowshoe outings. Thanks to the system of snow-compacted and marked-out footpaths, walkers can wind their way around the valley. Several snowshoe itineraries are also marked out on the snow covered slopes: the Mont de la Chambre itinerary which covers a remarkable 1000 m vertical height fall, the Girauds footpath and Le Châtelard-Téton circuit. The Pelozet path links Les Menuires to Saint Martin either from Le Roc des 3 Marches gondola or the Saint Martin gondola. Certain lifts are open to pedestrians or snowshoe walkers, giving access to the altitude paths and the panoramic views of the summits. Free walking map available from the Tourist Offices.

Historical Snow

 

Saint Martin de Belleville Snow Report – 2004-2014 (10 season average)

 

Here is the snow record data for St Martin. The first row shows the week for which the measurement applies eg. February 3 is the 3rd week in February. Top slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the top of the ski area. Bottom Slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the bottom of the ski area (this is generally where the nursery pistes are located). About 10 cm is generally enough to ski but it very much depends on what’s below ie. grass or more rocky surface.
