Val Thorens: unbeatable

Val Thorens is the world’s most acclaimed high-altitude ski resort. In 2014, it was awarded the World Ski Award for the Best French Ski Resort and the World’s Best Ski Resort. Situated in a vast natural cirque overlooked by six glaciers, the Val Thorens ski area benefits from maximum snow coverage and offers a multitude of itineraries, so you can ski in the sunshine all day long and enjoy stunning panoramic views. Europe’s highest altitude resort (2300 metres) and the highest point in the 3 Vallées, it often enjoys long snow seasons. People come from around the world to ski but also to enjoy every aspect of mountain life. Extremely well-equipped, highly organised and offering a range of activities, Val Thorens is ideal for people of all ages and interests.
