Ski Addict

  • The peak of perfection!

    Set your eyes on a real treat before hurtling down the slopes. Get on board one of the Caron cable car’s panoramic cabins and little by little, you’ll discover one of the most beautiful views over the Alps. Unobstructed views over Mont-Blanc and a 360° panorama over more than 1,000 summits in the French, Italian and Swiss Alps.

    Such a wealth of runs! Two of them, the Combe de Caron black and the Col de l’Audzin red, are north-facing and boast extremely high quality snow. A third option is to head over to the south-facing Orelle sector to try your hand at the famous Combe de Rosaël black run!

  • A taste of the exquisite!

    When you arrive in Val Thorens, it’s impossible to miss the spectacular sight of the legendary emblematic Péclet Glacier. Its summit, the Aiguille de Péclet, reaches a height of 3562 metres!

    Whether you’re an average or a seasoned skier on the hunt for maximum fun, the choice is yours: Glacier black run, Béranger reds, Lac Blanc, Christine or finally, the most accessible, the wonderful Tête Ronde blue run.

  • Snowsports in the sun!

    Want to know how to go home with a tan that’ll turn your friends pale with envy?

    It’s easy in Val Thorens! Located at the heart of a natural geographical bowl, the area provides sun and skiing all day long.

    There’s something to satisfy skiers of all abilities in the Orelle and Plein Sud sectors, so why not give them a try? One word of advice, don’t forget to pack sunscreen and shades!

  • Time for a snack!

    Whether you want a chic picnic or a restaurant to take care of it all, midday means it’s break time!

    With 3 picnic areas across the domain, 11 slopeside restaurants and a wide range of resort restaurants you can ski right up to, all you’ve got to do is decide what you’d like to eat: anything from a classic sandwich to an authentic traditional meal or creative Michelin starred cuisine, treat yourself to the max and make the most of the time out for a bit of lazing around in the sun!

  • The joy of XXL snowsports

    Set off from Val Thorens to storm the world’s largest ski area, the 3 Valleys, with 600 kilometres of slopes suitable for a range of abilities.

    Its 330 runs, 13% of which are green, 39% blue, 38% red and 10% black, make for an almost fifty/fifty split between easy and expert, ensuring that there’s something for everyone.

  • A thirst for the immense

    The ideal playground for mountain enthusiasts, the Val Thorens ski area is located on the borders of the Vanoise National Park. Enjoy larger than life adventures against a wide range of backdrops and locations that are guaranteed to keep a smile on everyone’s face.

    Guided by a mountain professional, set off on an exploration mission gliding over pure virgin snow.

    The most beautiful, legendary off-piste runs in Val Thorens, as well as 400 kilometres² covering the whole of the 3 Valleys is all yours (the equivalent to 4 times the surface area of Paris)...

  • Warning !

    Only the signposted runs are entirely safe. When you go off the marked runs you’re exposing yourself to the dangers of the mountain and are solely responsible for your own safety: competence, experience and safety equipment is required.

    We can’t be held responsible and to keep risks to a minimum, we firmly recommend and strongly urge you to make sure you’re accompanied by mountain professionals: ski schools or high mountain guides.

  • Immaculate white as far as the eye can see!

    Looking for incredible landscapes and a complete change of scenery? Head for the Col chair lift which will take you up to an altitude of 3,130 metres between the Chavière and Thorens glacier.

    Once you get there, welcome to a moment out of time! A huge area of immaculate untouched white snow is ready and waiting. The unobstructed view over part of the Vanoise National Park and its Glaciers is a truly striking sight.

  • Oh, the beautiful Blues!

    Looking for a peaceful ski experience? With 29 blue runs, getting around Val Thorens is absolute child’s play. In the morning, head for Orelle to take advantage of the first sunshine of the day.

    Then set off for the stunning Tétras slope for a trip down to the area’s lowest point at an altitude of 1,800 metres. Get back up on the Plan de l’eau chair lift before exploring the Plein Sud sector and soaking up the very last of the sunshine!

  • A family outing...

    Use Val Thorens as the starting point for a lovely family outing by taking the blue runs to discover the Belleville Valley!
    Explore little villages, authentic local restaurants and other Savoyard curiosities.

    A trip that provides an invigorating change of scenery, taking you from an altitude of 2,300 metres at Val Thorens, to an altitude of 1,400 metres at Saint Martin de Belleville.

    And you’re off! Skis on, ski pass in your pocket, head for the Boulevard Cumin blue run!

  • Snowsports & Love!

    Looking for a romantic couple’s getaway?

    Set off for Europe’s highest resort and enjoy a taste of the Val Tho experience with a stay at the summit!

    A change of scenery and a romantic break that creates instant magic. Share the joy of sumptuous panoramic views, the moving experience of watching the sun set from Péclet or the pleasure of a cosy meal for two next to a crackling fire...

  • The mountains forever!

    The mountains are precious, so take care of them!
    Sustainable development, ecology and environmental responsibility is everyone’s business!

    Local professionals have devoted themselves to taking clear steps to preserve this exceptional natural setting.

    Don’t litter the natural environment, litter bins are dotted all over the resort and ski passes are all recyclable.
