The giant Les 3 Vallées ski area in France, with its 600 kilometres of lift linked piste, will open for winter Dec. 5.

In Les Menuires, four ski lifts will be open from Dec. 5, guaranteeing skiing over a vertical of at least 1000 metres.  A six-day Les Menuires area pass will cost €124 and Les 3 Vallées pass will cost €151 in this promotional period.

Les Menuires Reservation is also currently offering special early booking prices - the earlier you book, the less you pay. This offer is only valid for accommodation + six-day ski pass packages, sold for white weeks or low season.

Price examples include €678 for four people, a reduction on the full €859 price for an all inclusive holiday (four-person studio and four six-day 3 Vallées ski passes), staying between Dec. 5 and 19  2009, if booked before Nov. 1.  This represents a saving of more than €180 on the regular price. 

Similar deals are available in a two- or three-star hotel or in a tourist residence, depending on availability. The early booking offers are available for holidays taken during the periods: Dec, 5 -19; Jan. 2 - Feb. 6; March 13  - April 3; or April 17-25.

Participating accommodation providers can be recognised on the Les Menuires Web site through an early booking logo next to their entry.
