Welcome to Val Thorens - the super-friendly resort which offers the best of skiing in the best of atmospheres!
1- The promise of quality snow all season.
Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe – nestling at an altitude of 2,300 metres at the top of Les 3 Vallées (the world’s largest ski area). Due to its unique position, the snow is always great and you can ski right through into early May. It’s the first resort to open and the last to close! With 150km of runs accessible to all types of skier, there’s no chance of running out of inspiration on the slopes in Val Thorens. Ski into the centre of the resort, relax on a mountain restaurant terrace or enjoy the specially designed fun spaces within the ski area. The resort also has some of the latest innovative ski lifts, and the operating company is always looking for new ways to provide a great experience for visitors.
2- So much to do: Val Thorens - skiing, yes, but that’s not all!
From crazy fun to total chillout - you’re sure to find what you’re looking for: dog-sled rides, ice diving, helicopter rides, yoga with mountain views, snowshoeing or zip-lining - go to our "Activities" page for all the ingredients of an unforgettable holiday.
So, the weather’s not being kind for your holiday? Don’t panic! If you’re looking to relax, you can head to one of the resort’s many spas for some healthy me-time. Rather work up a sweat?
