What's new in the ski area
Giant letters on the slopes
There are (at least) 197,223,000 of you who ask us every year... so we've done it!
You'll find our 2 giant letterings on the green Traversée des 2 lacs piste (2 lacs chairlift) and the blue Traversée de montaulever piste (3 Vallées chairlift or funitel).
Two easily accessible slopes and carefully chosen vantage points for perfect shots!
A panoramic footbridge at Cime Caron
Inaugurated this winter, the new panoramic footbridge at Cime Caron gives access to a rotunda suspended in mid-air, offering an exceptional panorama of the resort and the surrounding peaks.
A central shaft gives you a view of the void beneath your feet, and the peaks are engraved directly on the glass, so you'll know everything the next time someone asks you "Is that Mont Blanc?
Upcoming projects: Already in the process of being transformed, Cime Caron will be home to a new building from the 2024/2025 season. Linked to the existing pedestrian tunnel, it will house a panoramic terrace, a wine cellar and a bar and restaurant service. It's sure to become the place to be if you want to enjoy a 360° panoramic view of Mont Blanc.
A new ski touring trail
Open since the beginning of January 2024, the new ski touring piste, in partnership with Salomon, is made up of two sections: Petite Sud and Grande Sud.
The trail starts in the Balcons district at the Les Balcons Platinium residence in Val Thorens and arrives at the picnic area of the Chardons red trail.
With a total length of 3.83 kilometres, this trail offers a positive vertical drop of 408m.
A ski run named after Chloé Trespeuch
It's an honour to have a track named after me on my home turf, where I grew up, from my first snowplough to my Olympic goals.
At the age of 29, Chloé Trespeuch already has a great track record: eight years after winning bronze in Sochi in 2014, she is Olympic snowboardcross vice-champion at the Beijing Olympics in 2022 and world No. 2 this season. A member of the Val Thorens club since the age of 6, she started out as a skier but quickly moved on to snowboarding. She joined the French snowboard team in 2009 and quickly achieved results that promised her a bright future in the discipline. Val Thorens had to honour its ambassador with a radiant smile by inaugurating a slope in her name, where she "learned, fell, progressed, doubted and loved".
The Chloé Trespeuch stadium can be reached by taking the blue Chalets piste from the 2 Lacs chairlift.
Malaysia, a complete makeover for the world's largest resort club
A legendary club in Val Thorens, the Malaysia underwent a complete transformation last summer. For its 39th season, clubbers can look forward to an entirely new concept. With a new logo, a new space, a new concept and new sound and image techniques, the Malaysia has a real ambition to be the "nightclub of the 3rd millennium".
As for the sound, none other than Laurent Garnier, an icon of international electronic culture, helped rethink the acoustics of the club. He went to Vienna, to the Grelle Forelle club, to find "the best sound in the world" and install it at Malaysia. In terms of space and visuals, the club called on renowned film and music video director Alexandre Courtès to rework the entire concept and visual design. The general idea behind the project was to transform the entire venue into a visual space, with a volume and animations that immerse the spectator in a playful universe.
Finally, on the practical side, the entrance to the club will be moved down Place Caron so that clubbers can wait in the warmth of an underground access corridor that can accommodate up to 200 people. So it's a brand new, cutting-edge club for party-goers this season!
Wellness experience at the Spa de l'Oxalys
To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, the 4-star Oxalys residence in Val Thorens is renovating its "Wellbeing" area and opening a new Spa. Designed to meet the needs of today's travellers in search of a moment out of time and absolute well-being, the Spa de l'Oxalys is a veritable haven of peace. A modern, soothing environment with a team of qualified practitioners, for an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and recovery.
The Altapura Pure Altitude Spa becomes a Spa Codage
The new Spa Codage at Altapura plunges you into a world of snow and ice dedicated to muscle relaxation, physical preparation and recovery. The Day Spa package includes a 1,000 m2 wellness area with an indoor/outdoor pool, the only one of its kind in the resort, and a one-hour treatment. The day is rounded off with a gourmet break in the hotel restaurant, 2Mille3.

Hotel Fahrenheit 7 ****
The establishment is continuing to renovate and redecorate its rooms while retaining its sporting and festive DNA. The spirit of °F7 is impertinent, quirky and warm: the decor, staff uniforms, menus and music programme leave nothing to chance. Whether it's a live acoustic performance in the cosy atmosphere of the Zinc (the hotel bar), a private DJ set during the Seven Parties or après-ski on the terrace, the events at °F7 make the hotel The Place To Be!
