The highest ski resort in Europe and the gem of the Three Valleys, Val Thorens is a haven for snow sports lovers. Every year Val Thorens catered ski chalets, hotels and apartments are full to the brim with people enjoying this magnificent winter wonderland. Thanks to its altitude, snow conditions are amazing and the views from almost anywhere are spectacular. In fact, many consider this incredible spot to be the ‘World’s Best Ski resort’, an accolade that has also been confirmed by the World Ski Awards for several years running. A trip here is definitely one that you will always remember… |
To make the most of a fun-filled week here in Val Thorens, catered ski chalets are a great accommodation option. Off the slopes you can enjoy a marvellously luxurious home from home, while on the slopes you can soak up the stunning views that stretch in all directions. Loftily hovering above its neighbouring valleys of Courchevel and Meribel, this lovely resort sits at the head of the Belleville Valley.
On a clear day, you can head up the Cime de Caron and feel like you’re literally on top of the world. If you are really lucky and the clouds are kind, you may catch a glimpse of majestic Mont Blanc. You don’t even have to head high to get the picture postcard dramatic scenery that many associate with this resort; on a sunny day you can stand in town and take a snap of the horseshoe mountain range that envelops it for an equally beautiful picture.
Even when the weather closes in, the ambience is alluring, and the scenery takes on an even more wild and magical aesthetic.
Internationally Acclaimed Location
While the views are amazing, the snow conditions are probably even more so. Covered in snow for almost half the year, it means this is a prime spot for avid skiers and snowboarders. There is a real variety of visitors here too, which ranges from the keen and enthusiastic 20-somethings who love it for its variety, to the seasoned and more wealthy clientele, who love it for its reliability. The diversity of people who stay add to its charm and help to create a fun and friendly atmosphere wherever you go.
Adventure for All
Thanks to its size and shape, this resort offers so many opportunities on the slopes for people of all abilities. There is a vast range of terrain and a good selection of pistes that are carefully graded from absolute beginner to advanced, meaning that there’s lots of potential fun for everyone. Newbies can start out on the magic carpets and nursery slopes, while intermediates can choose from endless sweeping blues and greens. Advanced skiers will love the Cime de Caron, which offers a long piste leading down from 3200m right back into the resort.
On top of its own 140km of pistes, it has easy links to the Meribel Valley and from there to the Courchevel Valley, which between them offer access to a further 400km! Not only that but the off-piste options here are seemingly endless.
After a fabulous day out on the slopes of Val Thorens, catered ski chalets await. This accommodation is always a good option if you just want to kick off the skis at the end of the day, sit by the fire, enjoy a home cooked meal and plan for your next day's action.
