“Charming old spa town below Meribel in France's Three Valleys. The old spa town of Brides-les-Bains was 'the Olympic Village' and thus home to the athletes participating in the 1992 Winter Olympics. Its 'real small town' feel contrasts with the internationally better known resorts up the mountain which include arguably France's choicest resort Courchevel, Europe's highest major resort Val Thorens and Europe's ugliest resort - Les Menuires.

   Brides-les-Bains is a small village on the main road at the bottom of 'Les 3 Vallées'. We chose Brides as we got a ridiculously cheap deal but if you pay full whack you may get cheesed off with having to ride the twenty minute bubble lift up into Meribel every day and then get another lift before you can start skiing. It is however a cheaper way of skiing Courchevel, Meribel & Val Thorens
