Still wondering where to take your mountain holiday this winter? What if we told you our resort is great for snowsports, sun-drenched terraces and trying new things - with a few thrills and chills thrown in? Parents and kids? Partying or chilling out? 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.

3- The ideal resort for all the family

There are several nurseries and day-care centres for little ones, and older children can start learning to ski at one of the resort’s kid’s clubs. If you don’t ski as a family, there’s plenty of other kinds of fun to be had, including the Cosmojet toboggan run, spa family zones, twin zip-line, dog-sledding and the ice-fall. Believe us when we say that Val Thorens is a really happening place !
