Overview

Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe. Thanks to its six impressive glaciers, the resort provides doorstep skiing on guaranteed snow, which makes it an ideal base for keen skiers and families all season round. A car free resort, Val Thorens has two shopping centres, many bars, over fifty restaurants and three night clubs.

The ski area is good for beginners and intermediates with green and blue runs down through the trees.  For more advanced skiers there are plenty of red and black runs, and skiers can take advantage of some good off-piste.  Access to the varied skiing is possible from 5 bases along the valley floor.  There is a link, via the Orelle gondola (40 minutes drive/35km away) straight to Val Thorens and the vast skiing area of the 3 Valleys.

Facilities

Sports centre with indoor tennis, squash, badminton, table tennis, volleyball, football, basketball, swimming pool, hammam, jacuzzi, sauna, solarium, relaxation area, fun park (trampolines, bouncy castles, ball pools), aqua gym, fitness courses and a wellbeing centre. Other activities include tobogganing, bowling, snow shoe walks, snow scooters, paragliding, mountain biking on snow, ice driving school, micro light, ice waterfall, concerts and cinema.

Facilities for children

The ESF baby club cares for infants from 3 months to 3 years and the ski kindergartens take 3, 4 and 5 year olds. From 4/5years, children’s ski lessons are available.
