Val Thorens, however, has many options for those looking for a tasty evening meal, so it is certainly worth booking at least one dinner out to see what the resort has to offer.
If you fancy treating yourselves to a dinner date with a difference, why not check out the popular Mongolian Yurt?
Make your way to the spacious and atmospheric Mongalian yurt at an altitude of 2500 metres. Enjoy authentic dishes, such as a seafood and meat fondue with noodles, alongside wonderfully cooked regional dishes concocted by the Chalet de la Marine chefs. As the evening draws to a close, make your way back to the resort on snowshoe or ski and by torchlight.
After you’ve eaten your meal in your lovely catered chalet, Val Thorens has plenty of after dinner activities to keep your party entertained. Why not pay a visit to Le Bowling? Open until 2am the centre offers arcade games, pool, big screen televisions showing sporting events, a bar and, of course, classic ten-pin bowling.
If culture is more your style, Val Thorens plays host to both classical and jazz music concerts once a week throughout the season – best of all, they are free. For a less high-brow live music experience, the bars and restaurants of the town have a variety of live events happening all week long. Pop your head in to one and have a drink.
For a lively pub experience, head to the Red Fox, with karaoke and happy hours galore this fun, friendly bar with cheerful staff is the ideal place for a warming drink to ease sore muscles.
