Brides-Les-Bains was put on the map as a result of the 1992 Winter Olympics when it was designated an official Olympic Village and the necessary modern infrastructure was installed including the 'Olympe' Telecabin.  Chalet La Cascade is one of the closest accommodation to the 'Olympe' Telecabin lift station and perfect if you do not like to do a lot of walking with your ski's or board. A 1 1/2 minute walk from the villa's front door to the lift station, 'Olympe' takes you on a wonderful scenic ride directly to the centre of Meribel. The journey takes approximately 25 minutes, which is quicker, cheaper and more convenient than driving by car and takes no more time than walking from many of Meribel's chalets to its lift stations. Once in Meribel, five different lifts leave from the lift station to ski slopes across the entire Meribel/Mottaret Valleys and beyond. Lifts from Meribel will take you directly to Courchevel 1850, Les Menuires.and on to Val Thorens and the fourth valley. All in all 600KM of piste for your pleasure with 330 x separate runs, 184 x Ski Lifts 5 x Snowparks, dedicated children's play areas and 1,800 x Snow cannons covering 30% of the ski area. When conditions allow an outstanding off piste run through the forest with a vertical descent of over 2,000 Meters from Meribel to within 30 M of La Cascade is possible for the experienced and recommended with a Ski Guide.
