SKI VAL THORENS

Val Thorens is Europe's highest ski resort at 2300m. Skiing is all but guaranteed for the majority of the season as Val Thorens sits in a large plateau surrounded by 6 glaciers. Luxury ski chalets in Val Thorens are quite rare so the ones that there are tend to book up fast.

Skiers will be able to head over to Courchevel or Meribel with ease. The local runs around the resort are mostly suited to intermediate or advanced skiers but you can easily access Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville where beginners and families will find wide well groomed slopes. A luxury ski holiday in Val Thorens used to be confined to luxury hotels but now luxury chalets are wanting a slice of the fantastic skiing as well.
