There is no doubt that a Val Thorens ski holiday has a lot to offer any visitor. Europe’s highest resort has a charming and welcoming atmosphere, as well as everything a party animal could ever dream of from a skiing destination. Its buzzing après ski scene is regarded as one of the best on the continent and, with slopes to suit all abilities and wonderful alpine vistas, a Val Thorens ski holiday will leave you wanting to return time after time. |
Other Sports & Activities
The resort has recently put a lot of effort into developing its off-the-slopes activities. From paintballing to swimming and mountain biking, there is no shortage of things to do when you’ve had your fill of the slopes or simply want a rest day.
Val Thorens has over 40 bars and the resort attracts visitors from all over Europe who want to sample the renowned nightlife. The excellent après scene is extremely well regarded, with everything from happy hour deals to heavy bass and dancing into the early hours.
La Folie Douce
A Val Thorens ski holiday has plenty to offer when it comes to nightlife, with La Folie Douce offering an exciting and fun-filled evening out on the town. It’s probably the first time that you’ll have danced so high up on a mountain, with fabulous music pumping out from the bar into the wee early hours of the morning.
This bar has become famous throughout the skiing world, and holds the status as the highest open-air club in Europe. Opening at midday and stretching right through into the small hours, the party rarely stops at La Folie Douce, with DJs keeping everybody entertained and friendly bar staff making sure everyone has a drink in their hand.
Once you’ve been to La Folie Douce, why not head on to Bar 360? Situated conveniently at the bottom of La Moraine lift, whilst it is similar in ambience to La Folie Douce, it’s a little more intimate and not on such a grand scale.
Now one of the busiest bars in the Three Valleys, Le Saloon opened around 12 years ago, and has since gained an excellent reputation with many keen customers ready to party. Ideally located, this bar affords skiers the perfect chance to unwind and relax after a hard day’s skiing.
Le Malaysia is the biggest underground nightclub in the Alps and is famous for giving its visitors a very good time and a highly exhilarating night. Don’t miss out on the fun on offer!
Many of the hotels and accommodation in the resort also have their own in-house bar or restaurant, so don’t forget to check a few of those out at your leisure.
Ultimately, a Val Thorens ski holiday can offer the best of both worlds. The wild and crazy party animal will find plenty to keep them entertained, while those looking to enjoy a more relaxed, intimate atmosphere on the mountains also have multiple choices.
