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, but can be vulnerable to bad weather with freezing temperatures and possible whiteouts. Forming part of the Three Valleys 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 theres an excellent Snowpark to keep freestylers busy. Beginners too can enjoy Val Thorens with several gentle greens and easy blues scattered around the resort.

Val Thorens ski resort

As the resort is traffic-free and purpose-built, most accommodation options offer ski-in-ski-out accessibility. However, après-ski is quite limited, while the list of non-skiing activities is a little short. Overall, Val Thorens is a resort for people who come on their ski holiday to ski and want the guarantee of snow.

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 01-Apr-2015)

The weekend saw precipitation return to the majority of French resorts. Unfortunately this fell as rain at many locations, then the drop in temperature during the night on Sunday turned the rain to snow, providing some fantastic powder skiing conditions on Monday morning, 30th March. Rain did fall at some lower locations though, with slopes below about 1,500m worst affected. The deepest snowfall was reported at the highest part of the Chamonix valley skiing area (0/222cm). Here a metre of fresh snow was reported up on Aiguille du Midi, with around half that amount 600m lower on the Grands Montets skiing area. Val Thorens (145/240cm), the highest ski base in the Three Valleys, reported 50cm of new snow on Monday morning, although Courchevel (79/146m) did not report any new snow. Lift operations in the Espace Killy were limited on Monday morning. You could not ski up on the glacier at Tignes (115/185cm) and many other high lifts were also closed due to the severe weather and heavy snowfall. At Val d’Isere (115/185cm) it was a similar situation with only 50% of the lifts operating on Monday morning. This meant that the slopes were relatively busy across the Espace Killy due to the increased visitors this week for the Easter break and the limited amount of terrain that was open. This was not too much of an issue though as the snow was fantastic. The British Universities Snowsports Council (BUSC) Main Event takes place in Tignes this week too, with over one and a half thousand students. The Northern Alps will have cloudy weather for most of this week, with light snowfall expected on most days. The Southern Alps and Pyrenees should remain a lot brighter although these resorts will not benefit from the fresh snowfall seen further north.

European Weather Outlook

With the seasons end just a few weeks away for most resorts it looks as though there will be plenty of fresh snow falling over the next few days in the northern regions of the Alps, a perfect gift for the Easter holidays. The forecast is indicating that Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd April should bring the majority of the snow alongside and average mid-mountain temperature of around -7C. With this is mind the current cloudy skies are expected to remain throughout the week so it should keep all the fresh snow in perfect condition. The amount of predicted snowfall can fluctuate from day to day but early indications are saying as much as half a metre will drop on Wednesday and Thursday. It seems that it's safe to say that if you are skiing in the Northern Alps this week or over the Easter period then you're in for a treat. The Southern Alps and the Pyrenees will most likely remain clear and sunny, so pleasant spring skiing will be available. The temperature should remain quite hot too so pack plenty of sun cream. If you are skiing a little closer to home in the Scottish ski resorts then weather forecasts are suggesting quite a cloudy week with a good chance of light snowfall. Eastern Europe and up into Scandinavia looks quite changeable with scattered sunshine and clouds but there could be light snowfall so fingers crossed.
