Chalet Taureau

Features

  • Sleeps 6 (30 available)
  • Catered chalet

Location:
Chalet Taureau is a chalet apartment located in the Altitude Val 2400 Residence in the Balcons area of Val Thorens. It is ideal for those wanting quick access to the slopes – the complex is just 200 metres (approx.) from the piste and the ski lifts are a 5 minute walk away. Alternatively, if your ski legs need a rest, you can catch the ski bus from right outside the complex. The centre of Val Thorens is a 10 minute (approx.) walk and there are several pubs, restaurants and ski shops nearby.

Chalet Taureau is excellent value for a snow-sure resort of this calibre. The open-plan living/dining area is decorated with lovely local furnishings and comes complete with wood-burning stoves, giving a cosy and intimate atmosphere. The large balcony allows you to take in the mountain air in peace, while the chalet’s convenient location on the second floor of the residence (accessed via a lift) also means that guests can benefit from the use of the swimming pool and sauna in the Altitude complex.

Chalet Layout:
Room 1 = double with balcony, private bath and WC (not en suite)
Room 2 = twin (beds close together) with private shower and WC (not en suite)
Room 3 = small double, private shower and WC (not en suite)
Open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with wood burning stove and balcony

Meals:
Start your ski day with fresh bread, a choice of preserves, cereals, porridge (on request), yoghurts, fresh fruit, fruit juice as well as tea and coffee, plus a cooked option of eggs and two other hot items. Hot items include bacon, sausages, hash browns, tomatoes, baked beans and mushrooms (or equivalent). 

  • A hearty breakfast
  • On your return from the slopes
    A freshly baked cake or biscuits with tea and coffee awaits you
  • In the evening
    Enjoy a delicious freshly cooked 3 course meal with house wine until coffee for one night less than the duration of your holiday.
Breakfast and dinner will be served on 6 out of 7 days and a continental breakfast will be left out on 1 morning.

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 04-Dec-2017)

Lots of fresh snow was falling all around the French Alps on Thursday 27th April. With a lowering freezing level and heavy snow falls continuing, many French mountain villages are looking very Christmas like. On snow conditions are generally fresh, although the lower slopes are still very spring like. Up top powder conditions are abundant, however, poor visibility and limited lift access is keeping the options restricted. The current snowy and cloudy weather will break for the weekend, presenting an excellent chance to get in one last lift access powder day for the season. Many resorts will be closed next week, but there is still loads of fresh snow in the forecast. With a good knowledge of the avalanche problem, touring conditions will be exceptional well into next weekend.

European Weather Outlook

Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late. Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm. Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
