Why Visit Val Thorens?


One of Europe’s best resorts for early and late season skiing.



Ski area

Part of the Trois Vallées, Val Thorens has 140km of slopes on the doorstep and is linked to a further 600km. The extensive lift system is being constantly improved, so you can get round the mountains remarkably quickly and easily.




Val Thorens sits way above the treeline, with slopes for all types and level of skier. There are superb beginner slopes and those new to skis will progress quickly, and the resort is an intermediate skier’s dream. Experts can take a guide to explore some great off piste terrain.




This resort is now firmly on the gastronomic trail. On the slopes, head for Chez Pépé Nicolas, their sharing platters are tremendous. Or for traditional Savoyard classics, a lively atmosphere and great views, La Maison is a firm favourite. And in town, make sure you try Les Enfants Terribles at Hotel Altapura.


Après ski

One of the liveliest resorts in the Alps, Val Thorens promises its fair share of hot spots. Start at La Folie Douce at the top of the Plein Sud chairlift, then take your pick. 360 Bar attracts a young crowd, whilst Au Perchoir has a more relaxed and convivial atmosphere.
