Claiming the title of Europe’s highest ski resort, Val Thorens is a haven of lofty mountain luxury. Residing at 2,300m, the highest peak reaches a towering 3,230m! What's more, as a ski in/ski out resort, it's fabulously convenient and boasts a relaxed yet convivial atmosphere.

Val Thorens is a part of the renowned 3 Valleys. Along with Courchevel and Meribel it comprises the world's largest ski area, linked by a fleet of 162 ski lifts. Offering a wide variety of slopes, you'll find something for all levels of skiers, with nursery routes for beginner skiers and challenging black slopes for advanced skiers. However, intermediate skiers will be in their element, with long cruises to help build confidence. Plus, with reliably excellent snow cover, you'll have numerous opportunities to make the most of them.

In the resort centre, find comfort in its wholesome village feel. Walk the authentic chalet-style buildings of the town centre, discovering the swimming pools, sports centre, ski schools and a range of fun activities that make Val Thorens ski holidays the very best. It can get a bit lively here, so be sure to make the most of the après ski scene as you soak in the incredible panoramic views on a clear day!

If you'd like to plan your next Val Thorens skiing adventure, our Travel Specialists are here to offer their expertise. Whether you're travelling with family or friends, we'll find your perfect luxury hotel, so you can enjoy the stunning views and doorstep skiing to your heart's content.
