From here, beginners will be able to see the lower nursery slopes where they can gradually build upon the basics. With a great range of slopes for beginners to progress to, it won’t be long before they swap the wide open green runs for the easier blues from the Becca chairlift. More advanced skiers will appreciate the variety of interconnecting blue and red runs across Les Menuires as well as some testing black runs.
