Europe's Highest Resort Adam Luto, Ski Specialist

"If you’re looking for first-class skiing you will love Val Thorens. There’re lots of cruising wide pistes which are incredibly well groomed - perfect for those long carving turns. It is a high altitude resort and so has a great snow record with excellent off-piste opportunities. Isn’t this pretty much all a skier needs?"

Skiing in Val Thorens

Val Thorens is the highest resort in the Alps, sitting at a snow-sure 2300m, so is a great choice for early or late season trips. It sits at the head of the Belleville valley, which also includes Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville and offers a huge amount of skiing for all abilities of skier and snowboarder.

The majority of the runs, suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers, start from above 2000m and from here there is plenty of interesting off-piste between the marked trails for the more adventurous skiers.

Val Thorens has one of the best terrain parks in the Three Valleys with separate areas designated for different abilities.

All extras bookings worked smoothly with the voucher system. Especially nice to find out that it was organised for our ski school instructor to meet us in the hotel boot room!
