Val Thorens Ski Holidays: The Skiing
As part of the 600km Three Valleys domain, Val Thorens' extended skiing is excellent. Intermediates are certainly well provisioned for and advanced skiers will love the big moguls and access to the Maurienne Valley for off-piste fun. There is an excellent snowpark to please boarders and freestyle skiers on their ski holiday in Val Thorens. Scattered around the resort are several gentle greens and, once these are mastered, beginners can easily start on the blues, many of which end up in the neighbouring resort of Les Menuires.

Because the resort is traffic-free and purpose-built, almost anywhere you stay will allow ski-in-ski-out accessibility. The Apres-ski scene in Val Thorens has improved greatly over the years. The arrival of La Folie Douce made this a true partygoers destination!

Overall, Val Thorens is a great ski holiday destination for people who want the guarantee of snow, a vast ski area and lively off-slope activities. You have Méribel and Courchevel to slide over to, varied terrain and incomparable convenience. The only box not being ticked here is alpine charm!
