Europe's Highest Resort Aodhan Boylan, Senior 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?"

Après Ski in Val Thorens

If you're looking for a resort with lively après ski then Val Thorens will tick the box. With a good selection of bars on offer, the hardest choice will be where to start.

The most popular choice on the slopes is La Folie Douce. There really is no better place to finish a day's skiing than on their terrace, dancing on tables and enjoying the shows they regularly put on.The outdoor après bar at the slopeside Hotel Fahrenheit Seven is also ideal for a post skiing drink. 

For wine lovers, the Zinc wine bar at Hotel Fahrenheit Seven has a choice of over 150 wines which can be accompanied by a charcuterie platter. If you're staying at the Hotel Altapura, the bar does some excellent cocktails too.

If you've still got some energy left, you can head to Malaysia for a spot of dancing into the early hours.
