Val Thorens is situated at the top of the 3 Vallées, the biggest ski area in the world with 600 km of pistes. 25 summits perfectly linked via 200 ski lifts with easy and rapid access: 15 min to Les Menuires, 45 min to Méribel and 1h15 to Courchevel. And to savour the infinite richness of the countryside, allow yourself a break on the terrace of one of the magnificent mountain restaurants.

As for ski lifts, the ultra modern comfortable lifts provide rapid liaisons even at the height of the season or in difficult weather conditions.

At an altitude of 2300 metres, the highest resort in Europe is the culminating point of the 3 Vallées, the biggest ski area in the world (600 km of pistes). Val Thorens guarantees an incomparable quality of abundant snow from the end of November to the beginning of May: 99% of the ski area is situated at above 2000 m and over 35% of it is equipped with artificial snow making machines. From the top of the Cime Caron at 3200 m, you can discover a 360° panorama over the whole of the Alps. From powder fields to perfectly prepared pistes, the wide and varied ski area has something for everybody: alpine skiing, ski trekking, snow boarding, snow shoe outings... and even toboganning on a 6 km piste, the longest in France.
