Resort Overview

Area Profile

Val Thorens is quite a stylish village and definitely a world class resort and has had more than 250 million Euros spent on improvements and on expanding the resort and ski areas.

The resort, despite facing north - also benefits from very good sunshine with little ever shadowing it. The area benefits from two ski schools which offer lessons for children as young as two and a half years.

The night life is very lively and there are 7 night clubs and a cinema in the resort itself. On the mountain you will find 12 restaurants and over 70 located nearby.
