Val Thorens offers a huge variety of ski areas for skiers of all abilities. The resort provides beginners with nursery slopes and wide choice of blue runs, whilst the enormous ski area makes this an excellent resort for intermediates. Advanced skiers may be attracted by the more difficult of the on-piste routes, but are more likely to find testing skiing amongst the array of off-piste skiing on an offer.

Furthermore, at 2300 metres, Val Thorens is the highest resort in Europe, which usually guarantees good snow. However, crowding and queuing can sometimes be a problem.

Non-skiers would be well advised to steer clear, with very limited off-the-mountain activity. That said, the resort offers a lively aprés-ski with a selection of bars and ever expanding range of accommodation.
