Quick Guide To Val Thorens
The highest ski resort in Europe has plenty to offer families, friends and large groups. Unlike some of the surrounding resorts, Val Thorens reputation as an affordable ski resort means that all budgets are welcome here, not just the super rich.
The ski resort was purpose built back in 1960’s and despite the controversy caused with suggestions it was ‘too high’ the resort has become one of the largest and most popular in the Alps.
Contrary to most other purpose built resorts, Val Thorens high rise apartments have been carefully reclad and blend in well with the village that arose around it in the years after, because of its height you’ll also also find most accommodation is ski-in ski-out.
Its dramatic location places tourists in the perfect position for breath-taking 360 degree shots of the surrounding peaks. The excellent high-speed lift network gives easy access to a fantastic variety of skiing from expert to beginner. In addition to the vast amounts of piste skiing, there are world-renowned snow parks that often host slopestyle events and a ski cross arena where the FIS Skier X World Cup is held.
Les Trois Vallées is renowned all over the world; the area delivers on all levels with 600kms of connected runs and over 180 ski-lifts across the resorts of La Tania, Méribel, Brides-les-Bains, Courchevel, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, St Martin de Belleville and Orelle.
The Après ski scene here is also legendary; there are plenty of bars on offer, but at least one visit to La Folie Douce should be on the agenda. It’s pretty hard to miss if you take the Plein Sud lift in the afternoon. Booming DJ’s and flowing drinks all on a sun drenched terrace make its reputation as one of the best Après spots in the world a solid claim.
In addition to all the fun to be had on the slopes, Val Thorens is a bustling town with hundreds of shops, bars, and top restaurants as well as a sports centre with swimming pool, bowling alley and they also boast the biggest nightclub in the Alps.
With over 1.6 million guests each winter Val Thorens strong position and growth over recent years makes it a hugely desirable ski resort for a holiday.
Val Thorens is partly pedestrianised, in a car they only allow drop offs for your luggage, all cars must be parked in the Valthoparc. All the more reason to let us whisk you away and save money on car parking.
