Not wishing to sound exactly like every other guide out there...but, yes, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe
at 2300m. And yes, there are obvious pluses and minuses to skiing holidays in Val Thorens. At such an altitude, a ski holiday in Val Thorens offers excellent snow conditions
throughout the season, with the Glacier de Péclet allowing summer skiing. However, when the weather turns, you'll know it. But there's normally plenty of sun
, so you should be able to do both.
