Val Thorens

Ski Area

It won’t come as a surprise that Europe’s highest ski resort has some of the world’s most snowsure ski slopes thanks to its altitude, and there’s even a glacier. But what many don’t realise is how much Val Thorens has developed into a major international resort, voted the best in the world, no less, in a recent poll.

Along with a great range of slope-side accommodation and plenty of apres ski and dining opportunities, from burger bars right up to Michelin star restaurants, there are all the extra adrenaline activities to try out too, including Europe’s highest zip wire. Then being located at the top of the world’s biggest ski area, Les 3 Vallées, is just the icing on the cake.

Key Facts

Key facts for Val Thorens

  • Make sure you visit the world famous La Folie Douce located just above Val Thorens. Known for its very lively après-ski this is the place to go if you want a great atmosphere.
  • Val Thorens has its very own two Michelin-starred restaurant – Jean Sulpice formerly known as l’Oxylays, so if it is fine-dining you are after then we would recommend heading here (make sure you bring plenty of money)
  • For all you rum drinkers out there, head to The Rhum Box! This place offers more than 30 different flavoured rums and is one of the more sophisticated bars in the resort.
  • The Orelle ski area, often known as the 4th valley and is a great place to explore if you want to get away from the crowds, it tends to be quieter than other areas of the three valleys.
