Val Thorens

  • Resort altitude of 2,300m
  • 600km of marked pistes 
  • 53 green, 137 blue, 106 red and 32 black runs

At an altitude of 2,300m, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe and as part of the huge Three Valleys area, it is undoubtedly one of the very best. The resort has been designed to offer doorstep skiing from practically wherever you stay and has a village feel around a compact centre - where car access is restricted. The height of Val Thorens means long hours of sunshine, an unrivalled snow record and great skiing for all grades. 

The Vallée des Belleville, including Val Thorens, has received the Flocon Vert label, demonstrating the resort's dedication to environmental preservation and highlighting its dedication to sustainable development. When you arrive in Val Thorens, the best way to get around is by foot, bus, or skis - many of the hotels are in great locations, so the pistes are easily accessible, no matter where you are. To keep the slopes skiable, all snow groomers use a more sustainable fuel and are equipped with a snow coverage gauge device to determine where artificial snow coverage is required. After a day on the slopes, many of the buildings are well insulated to keep the heat in and have smart heating controls to reduce the use of energy. Solar panels are also used to generate renewable electricity.
