Perfect Powder Pistes Outside Val Thorens Catered Ski Chalets

Sports,Travel & Tourism
When it comes to amazing winter holidays, Val Thorens catered ski chalets come pretty high up on the list. This destination is famed for being the highest resort in Europe and is a favourite among the seasoned experts, who are very well aware that the higher altitude equals better powder and more off-piste options. From any of the many wonderful Val Thorens catered ski chalets, you can stand on the terrace and marvel at the lofty peaks that tower above this beautiful part of the Three Valleys. Those peaks are the doorways to a host of fun-filled powder riding opportunities just waiting to be discovered.

The great thing about this resort is that there are off-piste opportunities for all abilities; but if you’re very experienced and want to get off the beaten path with a local guide then there are even more possibilities.

Safety First

Of course, you must first make sure that you have all the necessary safety equipment. This includes a receiver, a shovel, a probe, a map and a compass, as well as a first aid kit and survival blanket. Helmets too, are an absolute must!

Lac du Lou

A thrill seeker’s dream, this 1400m vertical descent is famous among the powder junkies. There are two main routes to the lake, which is always frozen in winter, with one starting from the Cime de Caron and the other from the top of Boismint.

From Cime de Caron

The first route is the more popular and is actually more forgiving for the less experienced. From the top you head towards the Vallon du Lou. As you make your way down, look for the yellow sign that signals the start of your off-piste adventure. The diversity of slopes that lead down the valley is vast, making for an interesting and exciting journey to the stream, from where it gets a little flatter. Soon you reach the glassy lake where you can indulge in the magical views of Mont du Chat, a mountain shaped like cat ears that towers behind you.

From Boismint

Shorter and definitely tougher, this route is steeper and there are no flat sections, therefore no reprieve for tired legs; so be prepared! That said, the effort is definitely worth it for the exhilaration of the experience. Head down this one in the mid afternoon when the warm sun bathes the slopes and you’ll be in for an extra special treat.

Pierre Lory

The Col de Pierre Lory can be accessed via the steep slopes that lead down from the highest chair lift in the Three Valleys. This route is a lot of fun and not too taxing. The extensive snow cover and flatter sections make for a smooth and relaxed journey down.

These are the main off-piste routes, but if you go with a guide you’re sure to find more in the fabulous resort of Val Thorens. Catered ski chalets are run by hosts who are there all season and they will no doubt have more inside info on other routes you can try. As long as you prioritise safety, you can enjoy some incredible trails. Many lead right back into the resort.

When booking Val Thorens catered ski chalets, going through an experienced and reliable tour operator is advisable. They are experts in creating special holidays and will take care of all the logistics, while you get busy planning your off-piste adventures!
