Tips from Danny on Val Thorens

Was in Val Tho this winter and loved the way the slopes run right through the village centre. It was a 2-minute walk from my apartment to the slopes. This is intermediate paradise - not so many black slopes but you can carve to your heart's delight all day. A shame the Cime Caron was closed when I went, but the view across to Orelle from the other summit was still very impressive. Didn't even have to go to the rest of the Three Valleys because Val Thorens' ski area kept me well busy for two days.

Superb ski resort with modern facilities. There is always loads of snow so we are never disappointed.

Awesome holiday!

Best ski resort ever! Val Thorens has a cosy, welcoming atmosphere. The après-ski scene is not as crazy as in Austria but rather nicer, and none of the carnival music.

Wonderful ski area

We went there with Skikot, a famous travel brand in Belgium who was really good for the organization. We had a small (perhaps too small) room for 4 pers. at the foot of the slopes and the ski lift. Hopefully we had all stay long a wonderful sunshine, which is really nice for the après-ski at the Folie douce! The resort was also good for the nightlife with a large amount of bars, restaurants,... The ski area is available to any ski level, from the beginners to the pros. It's really good if you go there with friends who's got differents skiing levels. I recommend it to everyone.

Amazing ski resort

Even after the 15th time visiting Val Thorens, we are still amazed by the skiing possibilities offered by this ski resort. The slopes are lovely for both beginners and more advanced skiers. It's only a pity the prices on the slopes for food and drinks are so high.

Perfect resort for a mixed group

Just an amazing resort for a mixed group including total beginners and black run skiers and snowboarders. Les Trois Vallées is a very large ski area offering many possibilities. The snow is unbelievable. As the resort is located high in altitude, even late in the season, we always had great snow. Most of all, the views from the top of the area are breathtaking.
