Val Thorens Snow Guarantee Offer

In Val Thorens, because of its 2000m height advantage on other resorts in the area, they have now started to offer a "Snow Guarantee” claiming they will have the largest open ski area in Europe, if you find better opening elsewhere they’ll issue a credit note for any days you have been unable to use. For more info check out the article here.

“If a European ski area offers a larger number of open linked pistes, SETAM and STOR undertake to refund you in the form of a credit note for any unused day during the validity of your ski package. The refund can only be made for the unused day(s) during which another European ski area can assert a number of open linked pistes superior to the ski area of the 3 Vallées or Val Thorens-Orelle at the beginning and end of the season.”
