Val Thorens is one of our most popular resorts. It’s perfect for groups of any size and for skiers and boarders of every level. Furthermore at 2300m it is the highest resort in Europe which means excellent snow is guaranteed from November until May.
Part of its popularity is because Val Thorens is the highest part of the famous 3 Valleys, one of the largest linked ski area in the world; with 600kms of pistes and 183 lifts linking up the resorts of Meribel, Courchevel and Les Menuires, the 3 Valleys gives you access to every kind of slope you could want. Just make sure you catch the last lifts back over to your valley at the end of the day, as it’s a long bus journey if you don’t!
Val Thorens itself is based in a natural bowl, with lots of sweeping blue and green runs through resort which makes it ideal for beginners. At the same time the sheer expanse of the 3 Valleys means even the most experienced skiers and snowboarders will be kept well entertained. The snow park in Val Thorens offers 70,000 square meters of kickers, rails and boxes for all abilities, great to go and ride in or just to watch! The ski cross track leading into resort is on the world cup circuit, and accessible to all outside of competitions - definitely worth trying out!
You can’t fault the resort itself either – it was built in the 1960s with function in mind, so there’s easy access to all of the slopes and a whole host of actvities available. There are lots of atmospheric places for après ski on piste with La Folie Douche and Bar 360 only one run back to town, dancing on tables in the mountains has never been easier. Back in town there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants for later on which are all conveniently no more than 5 minutes walk from each other and 10 from your accommodation.
We have a range of accommodation from 2 star self-catered studios to 4 star chalets and 5 star self catered aparmtents complete with saunas and Jacuzzis and spas, and the best bit...you can ski straight down to and from them all.
