The skiing links in to the massive 3 Valleys system - you’re 2 lifts away from either Meribel or Courchevel 1850. The stats are massive - 200 lifts with a capacity to carry 260,000 skiers per hour, 2500 hectares of groomed pistes some 600km in length with 293 marked runs and 130km of cross country tracks. There’s also 1500 snow cannons, 70 piste bashers, 320 ski patrollers and over 1500 instructors to keep everyone happy.

There are now 3 runs down into the resort, a roller coaster blue through the forest, a wide red run with a consistent gradient down to the gondola and new for Winter 2005/6 was a new green run winding it's way down the mountain through the forest back to the top of the Troika beginners run. 

The blue run is now helped by 38 new snow cannons which were installed for the 2001/2 season along the entire length of the run - this has kept it open from the start to the end of the season ever since. There's a free drag lift and a short run for absolute beginners in the heart of the resort. For intermediate skiers, a day's skiing / riding to Val Thorens and experiencing the whole Three Valleys is a must - only 4 (or 6) lifts away.

Because La Tania has been built and developed fairly recently, all ecological and environmental advances have been included from its conception, the apartment blocks are built in a semi-circle around the completely pedestrian centre which gives the holidaymakers the chance to forget that cars exist during their stay.

All the buildings are wood clad, a material which adds to the general quality of the environment, and helps the integration of the resort into the countryside.
The traditional chalets have been developed whilst all the time respecting the architecture of the local Savoyard hamlets. The Commune of La Perrière is essentially supplied with electric power from a local hydro-electric power station, a very non polluting source of energy. To help limit the consumption of energy further, all the buildings are built with a very effective system of insulation
