Europe's Highest Resort Adam Luto, Ski Specialist

"If you’re looking for a first-class ski resort, you will love Val Thorens. There are lots of cruising wide pistes which are incredibly well groomed. Its high altitude means it has a great snow record with excellent off-piste opportunities. Isn’t this pretty much all a skier needs?"
