Val Thorens Resort Info

Val Thorens skiing

At 2300m, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, meaning the resort has a great snow record. Put simply, if there's no snow in Val Thorens then there's no snow anywhere! Forming part of the 600km Three Valleys ski domain, Val Thorens' extended skiing is excellent, with intermediates being particularly spoilt for choice. Advanced skiers also have plenty to play on with big moguls and access to the Maurienne Valley for off-piste adventures. In addition there's an excellent Snowpark to keep freestylers busy. Beginners too can enjoy Val Thorens with several gentle greens and easy blues scattered around the resort. There is no better all-around ski area anywhere in Europe, possibly the World.

Val Thorens ski resort

As the resort is traffic-free and purpose-built, most accommodation options offer ski-in-ski-out accessibility. As well as being Europe's highest resort and part of the biggest linked ski area, Val Thorens has gained a reputation in recent years as a lively apres ski destination. The arrival of the raucous Folie Douce and the slightly more chilled Bar 360 mean that your apres ski party begins on the slopes in mid-afternoon. Back in resort you've got a choice of several bustling pubs, including Europe's highest in the Frog and Roastbeef. If you're still thirsty for more then the Alps' biggest underground nightclub, Malaysia, stays open almost until first lifts in the morning!

It's not all partying though. Val Thorens has developed many facilties over the years, including an indoor leisure centre with pool, extensive shopping, ice-driving, the list goes on!

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 09-Dec-2016)

Thursday the 8th of December was a good early season day in for both of France’s mountain ranges. The best conditions are undoubtedly around the Southern Alps, which benefited most from the second dump of the season that occurred towards the end of November. Resorts like Serre Chevalier (0/145cm) (opened today), Montgenevre (70/180cm), Vars (25/110cm) and Isola 2000 (30/100cm) have slope in good condition, though off-piste is variable and certainly not fresh. Great skiing also on offer in Tignes (40/140cm) and Val d’Isere (5/140cm), as well as Val Thorens (60/135cm). It’s a hot day all over France, so don’t forget your sun cream, a bottle of water and a couple of bananas to keep you going.

European Weather Outlook

It’s been dry and sunny for most of Europe recently, and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. Austria and Eastern Europe could see some snow over the next week but it will be mostly dry. It’s a similar story in the Pyrenees, where sunshine is set to dominate.
