Skiing in Val Thorens

Country: France

In a nutshell: Snow-sure and epic skiing in Europe’s highest ski resort

We like:

  • As the highest ski resort in Europe, Val Thorens is one of the most snow-sure ski resorts in the world
  • Amazing skiing for all abilities in the 3 Valleys – the world’s biggest ski area
  • Lots of ski-in / ski-out accommodation in the well-designed resort
  • Some wonderful high-end hotels and restaurants to match
  • A lively apres-ski scene

We don’t like:

  • Being a purpose-built resort from the 70s, Val Thorens isn’t the prettiest of ski villages
  • The high altitude location means there are no trees, and it can get bleak when the weather closes in

RESORT DESCRIPTION

With a village altitude of 2,300m and skiing up to over 3,200m, Val Thorens is the highest resort in Europe and offers some of the best snow-sure skiing on the planet. Throw in a great range of ski-in / ski-out accommodation, some fabulous restaurants and a great apres-ski scene, and you have a truly world-class ski resort.

The skiing in Val Thorens is fantastic; as part of the 3 Valleys ski area there is 600km of piste to explore so mile-hungry advanced and intermediate skiers will get the most out of it, but it is also a wonderful ski resort for beginners. Snowboarders will love the lack of drag lifts, huge snow park and endless off-piste.

The Val Thorens ski village is purpose built and designed with convenience in mind. The resort centre is mainly pedestrianised which makes it a great place for families and provides an abundance of ski-in / ski-out accommodation. Val Thorens has been attracting an increasingly well-heeled clientele over the recent years, and as a result there are some fantastic restaurants. There is still a great range of budget-friendly hotels and apartments in the resort too.
