Val Thorens, a gateway to Les Trois Vallées, is the highest ski resort in Europe, with a ski area that starts at an altitude of 1800 m and rises to 3230 m. The village itself sits at 2300 m and provides very easy access to the slopes. Val Thorens is often one of the first ski resorts to open its doors to skiers, usually in early November. A resort in a league of its own, its presence in the heart of Les Trois Vallées means that visitors have access to 600 km of runs. The resort itself also has 150 kilometres of runs for all abilities.
A semi-pedestrianised resort, Val Thorens offers accommodation at the foot of the slopes and a wide variety of skiing and non-skiing activities, with an ice driving circuit, the longest toboggan run in France (6 kilometres and a 700-metre elevation difference), a giant snowpark (70,000 m²), a bowling alley, an arcade, spas, as well as restaurants, bars and clubs.
In terms of visitor numbers, Val Thorens is one of the top ski resorts in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. For some unforgettable moments among friends or family, head to Val Thorens to enjoy its varied slopes. For families, day-care services and skiing lessons are available, so everyone has a chance to enjoy winter sports in this spectacular setting.
