Enjoy a spot of pampering…
During your stay, recharge your batteries in the fresh mountain air. On the menu: well-being, beauty and relaxation!

After a great day’s skiing, sample some other pleasures! In the late-afternoon, head to one of the slopes’ open-air clubs to catch the last rays of the sun, the bowling alley for a laugh with your friends, the Mongolian Yurt for a magical evening, a classical music or jazz concert, or one of many new entertainment activities for even more fun.
Whatever your preferences, whatever your age, everything has been designed so you can round off your day in style. Val Thorens, “the place to be”!
