Overview

Located between Chamonix, Verbier and Les Portes du Soleil, Les Marécottes enjoys consistent snowfalls and is a haven for off-piste enthusiasts. As the preferred resort for professional skiers, photographers and film-makers as well as mountain guides who bring clients seeking easily accessible powder, Les Marécottes is quickly developing a reputation among powder connaisseurs. A 7km luge run, snowshoe trails, indoor pool, natural ice rink, and Alpin Zoo are particularly appreciated by fair weather skiers. Combined, Les Marécottes’ unhurried place, uncrowded terraces and the absence of lift queues makes for an idyllic mountain holiday.
