VAL THORENS SKI RESORT
Val Thorens sits at an altitude of 2300m, making it the highest ski resort in Europe. It is known for its party atmosphere and is very popular with young groups as it has a great selection of bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Although it is a purpose built resort, being constructed in the 1960’s, some new and renovated developments have made it much more attractive. It is part of the 3 Valleys ski area which offers over 600km of marked runs, serviced by 200 ski lifts. As well as 49 black runs, 175 reds, 207 blues and 66 greens, your 3 valley ski pass will grant you access to 2 glaciers, ensuring your ski holiday is snow-sure.
WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR VAL THORENS?
Val Thorens is at the end the Belleville valley road, which starts down at Moutiers. The transfer time is therefore not too long compared to some of the other French ski resorts. Of course it depends on the traffic and weather conditions and whether you are going during the school holidays, when the roads leading up to Val Thorens can be very busy. Chambery is the closest airport but with limited flights coming in, most people choose to fly into Geneva, Lyon or even Grenoble, as there are more regular flights to far more destinations.
