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 03-May-2015)

Good late season skiing can be found at the handful of French resorts still open for skiing. All resorts benefitted from some fresh snow this week, refreshing the slopes and providing a little fresh off piste. Val Thorens (70/180cm) is still offering skiing from 28 of 31 lifts and on Thursday, 71 of its 79 slopes were open. 13cm of new snow was recorded through the middle part of the week, providing some great skiing conditions. Val Thorens is set to remain open until May 10th. Tignes (22/134cm) and Val d’Isere (22/134cm) were still able to offer 67 lifts between them, with the Espace Killy link still open and 10cm of fresh snow on Thursday morning. Val d’Isere is set to remain open until Sunday 3rd May, with Tignes closing a week later on May 10th. Skiing is also on offer on the Grands Montets above Argentiere (0/120cm) until the end of play on Sunday. 20cm of fresh snow was reported on Tuesday, providing a great late season powder day. Sadly the weather is forecast to deteriorate during Thursday afternoon and night, with heavy rain expected to fall over the weekend. Snow may initially fall on Friday to 2,500m, but with the freezing level soaring above 3,000m from Saturday onwards, rain is expected at most levels. All of our other featured French resorts are now closed for the season.

European Weather Outlook

The weather in the Alps is set to take a significant turn for the worse over the coming days, as heavy rain sets in and the freezing level continually climbs upwards. Snow should initially fall on Friday to around 2,500m but will readily turn to rain up as high as 3,000m by Sunday and Monday. Current forecasts are calling for over 200mm of rain by early next week in places, so flooding may become an issue and certainly the snow conditions will deteriorate rapidly if this much rain falls. Norway can expect great weather for its final weekend of skiing, however with cloudier skies forecast for Sweden, low light lenses might be appropriate than sunglasses. Scotland is forecast a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend, with long sunny spells expected across the country. A few showers are possible to end the week, but come the weekend these are expected to be more scattered.
