  • Val Thorens is a modern, lively resort combining the best of skiing with the best of atmosphere. At the summit of the 3 Valleys area, this is Europe's highest ski resort, offering guaranteed snow and fantastic skiing in a friendly, cosmopolitan environment.

    The appeal of Val Thorens is beautifully simple; it’s the highest resort in Europe and as a result, one of the most snow-sure. A fast lift system means more time on the slopes for you. The Cime de Caron cable car takes skiers and boarders to the summit of the entire Three Valleys area (3,230m). From here, soak up panoramic views of a thousand French, Italian and Swiss summits. Then, savour a network of runs around Val orens, Méribel, Courchevel and Les Menuires that will change your perspective of what a hard day’s skiing is all about.

    If you’re an adventurous intermediate looking to go off-piste for the first time, rent a pair of fat skis, hire a mountain guide and explore routes like the Lac du Lou itineraire to take your skiing to a whole new level.

    Val Thorens is purpose-built and in recent years, many buildings have been restored with wooden cladding to give the resort centre a more pleasing ambience. There’s a young buzzy atmosphere with après-ski kicking off from 3pm at La Folie Douce but for those who’ve waved goodbye to their table dancing days, the resort is also home to a two star Michelin restaurant, L’Oxalys.

    Val Thorens encourages its guests to be adventurous; it offers a boardercross course, mountain biking on snow, ice driving and last winter, launched the highest, longest zip wire in the world. La Tyrolienne whizzes hardy souls along a 1,300 metre-long wire at speeds of up to 105km an hour, 250 metres above the ground.

    Now that’s what we call a Val Torens’ high!
