Situated at the top of Les 3 Vallées, the largest ski area in the world, in the heart of a natural rock and ice circus, Val Thorens offers a complete range of skiing. At 2300 metres, Val Thorens, the highest resort in Europe, is situated in the heart of a 360° Alpine Circus, orientated in all four directions, with a grandiose countryside, optimal sun throughout the day and nearly guaranteed snow from the end of November through to the beginning of May. There’s easy skiing around the resort, medium and difficult on the summits.
It’s the highest ski resort in Europe, it’s part of the largest ski region in the world, and that altitude means Val Thorens can open for snow sports from November to May.
Since it was first established in 1971, one of the newest as well as the highest of the French purpose-built resorts, each new development at Val Thorens has been carefully planned and thought out. Over the past 45 years the resort has reinvented itself many times and moved with the times, extending the choice it offers to respond to holidaymakers needs.
Besides those 600km of skiing and boarding in the 3 Valleys, Val Thorens also now offers a big choice of outdoor activities for everybody, wherever you are skier or not.
With 150km of runs in its own valley shared with Orelle and of course 600km in the 3 Valleys, Val Thorens offers a huge choice of terrain for all tastes and abilities.
