Make this winter a season in Val thorens. There is a lot of great skiing to be found, especially if you count all the valleys that are part of the system here and not just Val thorens.

There are very nice pistes if you get away from the very slopes where there are a lot of people and they get used quickly. If you are looking for more pristine snow, there is a very nice lift-carried off-piste, otherwise it doesn't take much if you want to do a booth hike or throw on the skins and trudge a little because there are lots of nice turns.

If I have to say something negative about this ski system, it is the lack of forest skiing as it is so high up and above the tree line.

Overall I would say this is one of my favorite places if you like steep skiing and a lot of après ski/partying if you appreciate it.

Very many beginners, which makes the slopes very awkward and icy. Not recommended for more experienced skiers who want to enjoy. Then most of the slopes are also very narrow, which I do not appreciate either. Expensive food

Val Thorens, Europe's highest ski resort and part of a huge ski system Les Trois Vallées - 600 km of slopes. At that height, it is a snow-safe place and has slopes that suit all skiers. Of course, there are also very good opportunities for off-piste.
Maybe not the Alps' most charming place, but perfectly ok with plenty of restaurants and opportunities for après ski and some live music.

The French ski resort with everything!
I pair Val Thorens with the croissant of my life as well as the skiing of my life! Never had nicer days on the piste - the snow conditions and weather were perfect!

2020 week 5
Was there with UCPA off-piste we got a dump of 70 cm, best off piste week so far.

* Village: *
Have read a lot that it is the least charming village in the Alps and that it is just concrete etc. What I experienced was definitely not so gray and boring. You can see that you have built a lot of concrete houses but today almost everyone had been covered with wooden panels that create a warmer feeling than concrete. For me it was a nice village.

* Without Life: *
Good apres ski, good party in the evening but nothing I prioritized.

* Restaurants *
Didn't get much "out food" since we had full board.

* Skiing *
When we arrived it was bad with snow, but the slopes were well prepared.
The next day it started to snow and we had a white out. To think about because you go so high is that you can be in a cloud that causes poor visibility, what happened to us, very poor visibility.
The third day had reached 70 cm of powder and it was brilliant sun. The scratches that the guide showed us and the lines we did were the best I've ever had.
I like off piste and think it is the most enjoyable ride, when I am in the Alps my prio is off piste skiing. What I got to experience here was something extremely good.
Cervina / Zermatt has been my fav area in the Alps but I have to say that Val Thorens is in the top now if not number 1.

Highly recommended !!!

No one recommends favoring Val Thorens and their extremely expensive ski passes and France in general: as I said, the prices of ski passes in relation to the remaining alps

Was a ski room here in 2015, so I lived in Val Thorens for 2 months without working a single second.

Skiing - Val Thorens has amazing skiing, with something for everyone. Here is the world's largest continuous ski system. But it is really quite unnecessary because you want to take you from Val Thorens and the far away you have wasted a lot of time on transport routes.

If you go off-piste, there are a lot of possibilities directly from the lift, you will find even more possibilities.
They have a park in Val Thorens, but also other parks in the other systems.
The slopes are good, but they soon get busy later in the season when more tourists come. Stay away from v. 7,8,9, if you do not want to party with lots of Swedish youth and stand in long lifts.

Nightlife - In Val Thorens you will find many places to party. The ski up on the rock on la foil douce overlooking the mountains is cruel. In any case, if you like when the DJs and saxophone artists play. At night you have several night clubs and one of them is the largest of the Alps.

The village - A large minus in Val Thorens is the apartment complex that has been built up, which makes the village much less cozy. A very big plus is that the village is the highest in the Alps (approx. 2300 meters), which means that you live in the middle of the mountains. This I think weighs up the boring buildings as you can check out the view instead of the houses.

Food - This is nothing good at a restaurant on the hill, if you do not pay unnecessarily much money. If you have a tight budget, there will be no food experience at lunch. However, down in the village there are some cheaper alternatives, eg. snow food sells incredibly good burgers and kebabs at a nice price. To go to a proper restaurant you have to pay a lot.

The first time I was in the Alps and Val Thorens set the bar high! I bought the lift card "3 valles" where you have access to the whole mountain, which I can definitely recommend for skiers who stay a week or more and want to get everything out of their skiing. Otherwise, the choice of Thor's great range of ski slopes and lift systems has spread over the village so you can basically jump in the skis directly outside the door. The slopes vary in difficulty, but for me the off-piste was the best! When the off-piste area was larger than the pistes and basically unpaved (of course). Nightlife is not to complain about with cool après-ski at La Folie, nightlife with underground dance floor in Malaysia and lots of bars. Staying there was convenient with a large shopping center, as well as grocery stores scattered throughout the village. The resort also fits families with children as they have a large playground in the center and many lighter slopes, as well as basically only seat lifts.

Val Thorens - an incredibly large system along with Courchevel and Meribel, with slopes for all types of skiers. With a high altitude it is very snow-sure and there are plenty of opportunities for good off-piste. The village is nice, and has changed for the better in recent years with more wooden buildings and less concrete. There are a couple of places with good après ski, and live music.
