Val Thorens, Europe’s highest ski resort and part of the 3 Vallées, the largest ski area in the world, has an excellent snow coverage at the moment – there is an average of 160cm on the slopes.
Thanks to its high altitude, the resort opens until early May. March and April are excellent months to go as the days are longer and warmer, and the resort organises some fun events and festivals.
