Val Thorens(3 Vallées)
The resort that combines the best of skiing with the best of atmospheres for each guest !
Skiers define Val Thorens as a unique resort, and for good reason. “Val Tho”, as they call it, has developed an exceptional ski area combined with state-of-the-art equipment. Since 1972, the highest resort in Europe has earned its reputation as the resort that combines the best of skiing with the best of atmospheres.
First of all, the best of skiing: Val Thorens is located at the top of the 3 Vallées, the largest ski area in the world boasting 600 kilometres of slopes. Being so high up (99% of the ski area is above an altitude of 2,000 metres) has obvious benefits: quality snow cover throughout the season, ensuring all snowsports tastes are catered for, from beginners with the XXL ski zone to the keenest skiers, not forgetting ski addicts, freestylers and other freeriders.
Secondly, the best of atmospheres: Val Thorens is a fantastic melting pot of cosmopolitan, sociable, and warm, friendly atmospheres. From bistronomy to gastronomy, jazz concerts to lively après-ski, this young resort isn’t just for younger skiers, but is also an ideal destination for snow and wintersports aficionados. For even more comfort, Val Thorens offers a wide range of accommodation, from cosy apartments to 5 star hotels, all of which boast doorstep skiing.
In this spirit of innovation and constant renewal, Val Thorens has even more new developments to offer this year like hotel Fahrenheit Seven 4* (Val Thorens’ new 4* experiential hotel), La Datcha (the 1st Eco-built guest house) … and much more on the ski area and for the Après-Ski !
Winter season: from November 26th 2016 to May 1st 2017
Five reasons to come to Valmorel !
Valmorel is the closest ski resort in the Tarentaise to the UK: on average you can gain up to 2 hours total travelling time on your ski holiday,compared with a ski holiday at a neighbouring resort.
2-Lots of snow:
Thanks to the geographical location of Valmorel’s ski area, the Grand Domaine – close to the Col de la Madeleine and to the barrier formed by the Lauzière mountain range - Valmorel enjoys exceptional snow cover all winter–around 15% better than resorts of a similar altitude.
3-Ski in–Ski out resort and totally pedestrianized:
In Valmorel, there is no need to use your car – you can get around very easily on foot, with the ski shuttle or on the Télébourg (a mini-cable car linking the various hamlets). Direct piste access from most of the accommodation enables genuine ski-in/ski-out enjoyment of an extremely accessible ski area.
4-In harmony with the surroundings:
The resort’s architecture is in perfect harmony with the landscape: buildings are no higher than four storeys and are all faced with wood and stone, some with trompe l’oeil designs, and stone roofs; the proportion of buildings to the ski area is less than 3%.
5-Friendly village atmosphere:
A holiday in Valmorel will be relaxed, restful and stressfree.Everything is done to create a feeling of freedom and calm: parents and children can concentrate on having fun together.
