Off-piste skiing and ski touring

Off the beaten track...

Explore the domain in another way thanks to exceptional tours proposed by the High Mountain guides and ski instructors. A great way to discover the glacier zones of the Vanoise, one of the most beautiful off-piste sites of the 3 Valleys and the immense mountain-side of the Maurienne and admire the stunning views of the Alps.

Simply choose your formula, in line with your experience level (beginner to advanced) and desires (day tours or longer treks lasting several days) and head off to adventure!

Ski Touring

CARDIO VERSION : GET UP EARLY AND GO FITNESS SKIING!

Ski fitness is to ski touring what jogging is to running; a cardio activity carried out wearing lightweight clothing, close-fitting trousers and a thin jacket. Armed with water and a stopwatch, you’re off, burning calories as you go! Ski tourers, more and more of whom are to be found in Val Thorens, now have a dedicated safe run open daily from 7am and 9am, and from 5pm to 8pm. The specific slope area will change over the course of the season to vary the fun for fitness-skiing enthusiasts!

Ski Slope Maintenance Team - +33 (0)4 79 00 01 80 - Free access

Free taster session: every Tuesday between 7am and 8.30am, the Mountain Office runs group sessions offering useful advice on technique and cardio training for beginners who’ve always wanted to give it a go.
Registration is required the evening before. Excluding cost of equipment hire.


REFLECTIVE VERSION : “DYNAFIT SKI LEOPARD TRACK” SESSIONS

Led by Val Thorens pioneers, this walk begins at dusk with an hour of climbing interspersed with stories about the history of the resort, and is rounded off with a well-deserved glass of mulled wine and a bowl of French onion soup at the Chalet de la Marine. The journey back down takes place under the stars. A unique experience to share with locals who love their mountains.
