Discounts Val Thorens Ski Resort As a result of the latest news concerning the Coronavirus, please note that there is currently no Instructor-led Guiding Service being offered in this resort. Constant investment in the lift network also allows it to boast one of the most efficient lift networks in France, making it increasingly easy to get from run to run and valley to valley. The lively resort sits at the head of the Belleville Valley and completely above the treeline, alongside Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville. These villages provide the perfect option for those looking to escape the bustle of Val Thorens itself, providing a quieter base from which to ski. On clear days, the location lends itself to a truly spectacular panorama, though it sometimes does present a challenge during whiteouts. Our excellent Instructor-led Guiding Service also returns to the resort and sessions with the New Generation Ski School are available to book between 22nd December and 13th April this winter.

Snow reports Looking upwards from hotels or apartments in Val Thorens to the snowy surrounding peaks that soar above 3,m can feel somewhat overwhelming. Val Thorens claims km of pistes of its own. Beginners are well served by magic carpet lifts and the gentlest of nursery slopes around the Rond Point des Pistes in the valley.

From here they can progress to green and blue runs off the Deux Lacs and Cascades chairs from the village. Experts will spend much of their time on and around the Caron peak that reaches 3,m. There are descents on both sides of the ridge, with runs reaching all the way down to the small village of Orelle on the Maurienne side — also known as the fourth valley. Val Thorens is in general a dream for intermediates. All standards can travel to the heights of the Cime de Caron for the long red run and blue run served by the cable car, and forays into the territories of Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville for long, cruising, and at times demanding runs should not be missed.

High on the Plateau sector beneath the Col de Rosael, the park is divided into four separate courses with jumps and obstacles suited to different levels of technical ability. Alternative activities on the slopes include two exciting zipwires. La Tyrolienne at 3,m connects the Orelle and Val Thorens ski areas with a flight of over 1,m up to m above the ground, taking nearly two minutes.

For both zip wires, skis and boards are strapped to the riders back.
