Our friends at Alpine Infusion know Val Thorens, so we asked them to tell us why they think you should visit!
If you’ve ever been involved with the world of skiing before, it’s likely you’ve heard of the Three Valleys. With spectacular views, a huge choice of pistes and top-quality resorts, it’s no surprise that it remains a huge priority for anyone looking to hit the slopes.
Consisting of the valleys themselves, Saint-Bon, Allues and Belleville, the Three Valleys is the largest skiing area in the world. All are connected exclusively by ski lifts and mountain sides, meaning there’s plenty for sport fanatics to dig their skis into.
With so much to enjoy, we’ve decided to put together the top five reasons to visit the Three Valleys. So, pack your things and get ready to hit the Alps this season!

You can afford to be picky when it comes to resort options too, with eight unique selections to choose from. Finding the right one for you is essential and will make your stay as perfect as possible.

Be sure to visit at festive times of the year, as you’ll be able to enjoy special seasonal events and performances exclusively to the region.

You can hike across the terrain along many designated walks, mountain bike and even shop! Bring along a camera for those picture-perfect views, bring some spending money and discover the unique views, goods and services available all year round.

This is a great destination for families, mixed groups and different levels of ability. There’s so much to choose from that you can opt for an intense black run if it suits you, or take on a gentler, green run. From kids to seasoned professionals, everyone is welcome.
