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 24-Apr-2014)

This is the last week of winter operations for a number of resorts across France, including some of the larger ski areas. Meribel (10/65cm) and Courchevel (46/122cm) in the Three Valleys ski area are both scheduled to close for skiing on Friday 25th April, along with Les Saisies (26/102cm). The Paradiski area, which includes Les Arcs (26/160cm) and La Plagne (0/215cm), closes for the season on Saturday 26th April, as does Montgenevre (50/70cm). Isola 2000 (55/265cm), Risoul (20/60cm), Vars (20/60cm) and Cauterets (150/250cm) should all then close on Sunday 27th. The state of skiing at the open resorts is good at the moment, with the best snow conditions high up. The Grands Montets ski area at Argentiere (65/205cm) in the Chamonix area reported 10cm of new snow in time for the lifts opening Thursday 24th April at 3,275m. Fresh snow could fall at all of the open ski resorts over the weekend, with heavy clouds forecast and a drop in freezing level to below 2,000m

European Weather Outlook

Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
