Val Thorens ski resort is the highest ski resort in Europe. It is one of the valleys in the Three Valleys ski network and offers excellent skiing for intermediates and advanced skiers. As well as good off piste skiing, Val Thorens is connected to the Orelle valley which offers two spectacular red ski runs. Apres ski in Val Thorens is lively, with La Folie Douce starting around 2pm every day and plenty of bars and clubs in the town centre.

The ski resort itself, as demonstrated on the Val Thorens piste map, is designed for all abilities of skier, for example the ski area in and around the town is gentle and easy. There is a large, wide open ski space in the town around the Campagnols beginner ski lift, and all of the pistes in the town are either green or blue runs. Therefore, Val Thorens is a great place to learn how to ski – although the altitude is something to be aware of as Val Thorens is one of the highest ski resorts in Europe. The “Flocen” and “Combe de Thorens” green runs are both next to the town, and are very accessible for those learning to ski. They also link to a small area called “Espace Junior” with a café and toilets, which makes the first few days skiing very enjoyable for a beginner.

Those looking for more advanced skiing should head towards Orelle, which includes going over the 3000m mark where the slopes meet. This provides extensive views over both the Val Thorens valley and the Orelle valley. In addition, the “Gentianes” and “Mauriennaise” ski runs on the Orelle side of the mountain both offer excellent skiing with a variation of scenic twisting pistes and some steeper and faster sections which head towards “Bouchet”, where there is a great spot for a coffee. On the Val Thorens side, going up to Glacier de Péclet provides stunning views of Val Thorens, and the Les Aiguilles de Péclet bar is an excellent place to catch a drink before the sunset. It also worth mentioning that Val Thorens has access to the Three Valleys ski area, which is the largest ski resort in Europe.

The more adventurous skier will want to experience the Sommet Des 3 Vallees, which is over 3200 metres above sea level as marked on the piste map. There is also a zip line ski lift which grants access to the Glacier Du Bouchet at the summit, which passes over La Tyr Lienne – the white wild. From here, two red runs merge in to blue runs, all of which are on the Orelle side of the ski resort. Again, venturing the other way towards the three valleys opens up to a completely different ski area.

Overall, Val Thorens certainly deserves its status as one of the best ski resorts in Europe, with its open plan ski in ski out designs, extensive views and most importantly, excellent on and off piste skiing.
