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 01-Mar-2017)

Monday 27th of February was the calm before the storm in France, which is awaiting the arrival of a storm tonight. There are some interesting conditions in Le Corbier (45/115cm) where resort runs were looking more like what you would expect to find in the Pyrenees in April – spring snow with brown patches. The snow is much better at the top, but it nonetheless reflects the frankly bizarre season we are having in the Alps this year. Resort runs are also suffering in Les Orres (60/120cm) where slopes are surrounded by mud and grass. Still, the snow looks soft and grippy so it’s not as bad as it could be. There are similar conditions in Orcieres (15/90cm) and Pra Loup (25/145cm). The coming snowstorm, which starts tonight, should address some of these issues with loads of new snow forecast. It will start snowing this evening, with Chamonix (20/215cm) getting around 20 cm tonight with heavy snow continuing into tomorrow. Other hot spots include Les Deux Alpes (40/160cm) and Alpe d’Huez (90/160cm) with La Grave (40/190cm) also on track for a rejuvenating snowstorm.

European Weather Outlook

It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far. This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions. Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent. Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
