Have you heard of Club Val Thorens? It’s an unmissable opportunity from Val Thorens! Membership is free with no expiration date. It allows you take advantage of some amazing benefits.
First and foremost, club membership lets you take part in a prize draw to win an experience during your stay. You must have heard of our flagship experience: the life of a piste groomer. Accompany a piste groomer at nightfall and find out all the secrets of the job and the machine itself!
Live my life as a piste groomer
We asked Lucile about her piste groomer experience:
“It was the best! We learned all about Yves, who’s driven a piste grooming machine in Val Thorens for years.
He took us to the Boismint sector, on the Tetras run. It’s a fascinating job and when you love skiing as much as we do, it helps you understand just what we owe these night-time workers. It was also incredible to see how the machines have been improved, the onboard computer and how comfortable the cabin was! It was amazing to be facing vertically down the slopes, in the middle of the night, in a machine that weighs several tons.
Yves was very kind, especially to the children who bombarded him with questions.
Thank you again for letting us have this experience, and for unlocking the mystery of the machines that work so hard for our well-being and safety.
How lucky we were to be in a resort like Val Thorens!” Lucile A.
Zen, sportive, gourmet, unique and original ...
Big vehicles not really your thing?
No matter, Club Val Thorens has experiences to suit everyone: brunch for two in the 5-star Le Pashmina hotel, introduction to avalanche victim rescue, introduction to ski touring, free entry to the Sports Centre Aqua Spa, taking part in the ski instructors’ torchlit descent…
This winter, Club Val Thorens has a great many surprises in store! Spoiling you comes naturally to us !
Are you a thrill-seeker? An exclusive night-time ziplining evening took place on the 3rd of January on the new La Bee zip line. After the ski runs closed, we met the Club’s special guests to go up to the top of the toboggan run in a tracked vehicle. The Club members were launched onto the zipline two at a time, with a magnificent sunset as their backdrop… A Savoyard aperitif awaited them on arrival, to help them warm back up and calm back down after all the excitement !
What did the Club members invited to this unusual experience have to say?
- “Thank you Club Val Thorens for this wonderful gift: this zipline descent will be forever etched in our memories” C.R
- “Thank you Club Val Tho and SETAM, it was incredible, magical and doing it at night-time was totally off the scale, thanks again!” B.D
- “Thanks to the whole team for this fabulous, thrill-packed experience! It was amazing! You’re the best” J.T
Go behind the scenes !
Would you rather go behind the scenes? Your wish is our command! This year, the Club is launching two new experiences packed with discoveries!
If you meet a member of the ski patrol, it’s generally either for an off-piste safety briefing, or because you’ve suffered an injury, neither of which is much fun… But there’s so much more to the ski patrol than that. Their job is really involved and they have a great deal to teach us.
This winter, we launched “live the life of a ski patroller”, a chance to share a unique experience with ski patrollers after the ski runs have closed. If you’d like to know more: we’ll tell you (almost) everything.
We’re also shedding some light on another unsung job… The ski lifts are an integral part of Val Thorens. You take them every day, but do you really know how they work?
In February, we launched “live the life of a ski lift operator”. Share the day-to-day experience of Grégory or Julien, who will explain how a driver-less gondola lift works and show you around the Moraine arrival station. An exciting experience awaits.
If you aren’t lucky enough to win the prize draw for this experience, don’t worry! We’re also running visits to the ski lift station during school holidays. Sign up at the Tourist Office reception. Please note that places are limited, and the visit is only accessible to Club members!
So, what are you waiting for – sign up now !
