What is the 3 Vallées Guaranteed Skiing Contract?
The 3 Vallées guarantees the greatest number of open connected slopes throughout the season in Europe.
The 3 Vallées slopes are located between 1,100 m and 3,230 m in altitude and 85% of the skiing area is over 1,800 m. Snow is guaranteed throughout the winter due to the ability to produce snow, the high altitude of the entire ski area and connections between the Vallées, which are all over 2,000 m in altitude.
If a European resort can offer you a larger number of open, connected slopes, the 3 Vallées is committed to reimbursing you for any unused days during the validity of your ski pass. This guarantee is applicable to every day of the open season in the 3 Vallées and applies to all 3 Vallées holiday passes lasting 6 days or more (Out of season, 3 Vallées Liberté, pedestrians) purchased on the Internet, or in an all-inclusive form from the Booking Centre or your host, or from a tour operator offering this offer in its brochure or on its website.
If any European resort can offer you a larger number of open , connected slopes, the 3 Vallées is committed to reimbursing you in the form of a credit note for any unused days during the validity of your ski pass. Reimbursement can only be made for the unused day(s) on which another European resort could claim to have a greater number of open connected slopes than that in the 3 Vallées ski area. Proof of better opening elsewhere must be verifiable and supplied by the customer. Only slopes closed due to a lack of snow will be counted. Closures due to bad weather, technical breakdowns or for safety reasons (avalanches, ice crevasses, etc.) cannot be invoked for the implementation of the guarantee. A slope is deemed as connected when it is linked directly, or via a ski lift, to another slope, creating a connected set of slopes. Any day with the use of at least one ski lift is considered as a day used.
How do I stand to benefit?
Simply return your pass, its proof of purchase and proof of better opening elsewhere within 2 months of the end of your stay to the ticket offices of your ski lift operator or by post to the Association Les 3 Vallées – 378 avenue des Bellevillle – 73600 MOÛTIERS TARENTAISE – France who will then reimburse you for the unused days. The refund will be made in the form of a credit note with a value corresponding to the pro rata temporis of the unused days within 4 months following receipt of the documents. The credit note will be available for the current and following season.
