About Val Thorens

The Val Thorens resort in the Belleville Valley has the enviable distinction of being the highest in Europe. At an altitude of 2300 m it is one of several resorts in the 3 vallées area, the largest continuous ski area in the world, offering 600 km of skiing, snowshoeing, boardercross, Segway, dog sledding, snow driving, ice diving, snowmobiles and paragliding. It should therefore come as no surprise that it is the most visited international ski resort in France. Many of the slopes are north facing, so the snow is good as it is not so sunny. In contrast, the resort itself is facing the sun, so visitors get the best of both worlds.

Val Thorens Facilities

The resort offers on-site accommodation in 11 slope-side chalets, ski instruction, snowparks and ski equipment. Creature comforts in the form of a sports centre and aqua-spa are available on-site and numerous restaurants serve top class cuisine. Shops provide an opportunity to purchase local goods and the après-ski bars and clubs are superb.
