Val Thorens (3 Vallees) Information

Val Thorens is a well-established and animated purpose-built ski resort created in 1971 at a height of 2300m. This clearly isn't a small village ski resort off the beaten track but it is still very traditional in appearance and combines the best of skiing with the best of atmospheres. Val Thorens is a unique, animated and cosmopolitan ski resort with lots of energy but at the same time has a relaxed, happy and welcoming feel - you take from the resort exactly what you want and at your own pace.

Val Thorens holds an exceptional position on a sunny West facing mountainside in the Tarentaise area of the Northern French Alps, boasting stunning views over 1000 summits in the Alps. There is a varied choice of ski accommodation from 4* Luxury ski apartments with spas and swimming pools to large standard self-catering apartments sleeping up to 18 people, plus cosy and more traditional hotels - all of which offer either doorstep, ski-in or ski-out skiing possibilities. So if you are a family, a group of friends, a couple (young or old!) or just pure ski enthusiasts - then Val Thorens is certainly for you!

With skiing in mind and for your complete convenience, each area has its own amenities close by such as shops, restaurants/bars, ski hire shops, ESF ski school office/kindergarten and lift pass office – meaning that your chosen ski accommodation will never be too far from all the important amenities that you need during your ski holiday.

VAL THORENS SKI AREA

Val Thorens is part of the large ‘Les 3 Vallées’ ski area (the largest ski area in the world), which many skiers rightly regard as the greatest intermediate ski-playground in the world! This impressive lift-linked ski area is formed of 8 ski resorts:

Les 3 Vallées offers you a total of 600km of high altitude and snow-sure ski slopes (150km in Val Thorens itself) - every ski enthusiast’s dream! Amazing skiing can be had right from the beginning of the winter season in the Les 3 Vallées ski area and there is something for everyone - no matter what your style or ability. Renowned for its quality of snow and modern ski lift system, Val Thorens is a perfect ski resort for everyone.

The 3 Valleys benefit from excellent snow coverage - the minimum altitude level for skiing is 1300m and the maximum is 3230m. This means that a huge 85% of the ski area is located above 1800m. Some 2000 snowmaking machines cover a third of the ski area as well. The 3 Valleys offer wide ski runs that are maintained nightly by 80 piste grooming machines.

The Saint Bon Valley offers some of the most beautiful wooded sectors of Les 3 Vallées. Whilst the eastern side provides traditional wide runs. Where the Saint Bon Valley meets the boarders of Courchevel, you will find sunny Moriond and its attractive ski slopes. The western side of Les 3 Vallées ski area is represented by the Belleville Valley and at the very top of this valley sits the impressive ski resort of Val Thorens – with its circle of 6 glaciers and alpine peaks that reach over 3000m!

The Val Thorens ski area is made up of 7 sectors: Plein Sud, Péclet, Moraine, Grand Fond (Montée du Fond), Rosael, Caron and Boismint.

VAL THORENS SKIING

VAL THORENS BEGINNERS

The wide and vast (10 hectares) beginners area is perfect for first time and low-level skiers and boarders. Access to this zone is totally free of charge – allowing beginners to get comfortable on their equipment and slide those very first few metres - before spending money on a lift pass. This area has been designed to provide first-class facilities for first timers and is where ski lessons start for adults, children, snowboarders and private lessons.

Beginners will find the Rond Point des Pistes slopes at the foot of Val Thorens wide, gentle and excellent for building confidence – the perfect place to start. Once you’ve got your balance it will be time to move onto the actual beginner area (espace debutant). The four Perspex covered magic carpets lead to special ski areas just for beginners, not only making it convenient and easy for them to get to the ski slopes but also allowing them to progress at their own pace and gain confidence away from the more experienced and high-speed skiers.

Once you’ve mastered the beginner’s area and feel ready for your first gentle green run, the Deux Lacs chairlift is the best to take. From the top turn left onto Traversée des Deux Lacs. Here you can either turn left again down the Espace Junior or continue to the Chalet de Thorens and take the Combe de Thorens – either route will take you back down to the Rond Point des Pistes. These are the main green runs in Val Thorens.

Once you are ready for a bit of blue action, the Cascades chairlift is usually the next step. At the top, turn right down Dalles. Other easy blues are Gentiane, Linotte, Moraine, Blanchot and Plein Sud. If you want to get to the top of the mountain and ski down on a fairly easy blue, there's Tête Ronde, Niverolles and Pluviometre.

Always remember that the weather and snow conditions will vary the degree of difficulty of a run. Generally runs will be easier first thing in the morning as they have been groomed overnight. By the afternoon they may be less smooth.

VAL THORENS INTERMEDIATES

Val Thorens has some of the best intermediate terrain in the whole of Les 3 Vallées. By taking the big Péclet gondola to Péclet Glacier or heading to the Pointe de Thorens you will find a great selection of red runs. And don't forget Val Thorens also offers great access to the rest of Les 3 Vallées, with blue and red runs that will take you down to explore Les Menuires and Méribel

VAL THORENS EXPERTS

Val Thorens also offers some great runs for experts. By taking the Cimes de Caron cable car (some queues expected at peak times) this will lead you to great black runs down the front of the mountain or down further into the Maurienne Valley. 

VAL THORENS OFF-PISTE

For those who want to try off-piste skiing for the very first time in Val Thorens, the Pierre Lory run is definitely the best. For the more adventurous off-piste skiers there is the famous Lac du Lou run, which has a challenging 1400m vertical drop.

Val Thorens together with the Belleville Valley and Les 3 Vallées are regarded as some of the top places in the French Alps for off-piste skiing. For many people off-piste is the very best of skiing and boarding: Perfectly fresh powder snow; that tranquil feeling of solitude and pure freedom; away from the crowds, pistes and lifts; surrounded by real natural beauty – nothing beats it and Val Thorens has it all!

As always we highly recommend hiring a mountain guide or instructor to find the best possible off-piste skiing that Les Menuires and Les 3 Vallées have to offer, ensuring your safety along the way.

VAL THORENS SNOWBOARDERS

The Snow Park in Val Thorens has a half pipe, jumps, tables, hips, handrails, a boardercross course and a sound system. The slopes are suitable for all abilities of boarders and the snow is great for beginners and carvers. For free riders there are plenty of off-piste opportunities.

The Snow Park is situated above Val Thorens in the Plateau area and is served by high-speed chairlifts. The park offers skiers and snowboarders the possibility to develop, progress and perfect their skills and technique on a freestyle course adapted to each level of ability. The snow here is great for beginners and carvers.

Spread over 70,000m2 the Val Thorens Snow Park offers a half pipe, jumps, tables, hips, handrails and an all-important sound system! There are green, blue, red and black corridors, so it’s easy to choose how difficult you want you jumps to be.

This fantastic run starts by the top of the Deux Lacs chairlift. It has rolling bumps on the top section, then a couple of jumps (which can be side-stepped); then banked corners on the steeper, lower section.

The brilliant skier/boarder cross location has even hosted French and European cups. When the course is not being used for training or competitions, it is open to anyone to ski or board it. There are numerous freestyle competitions run throughout the whole winter season, such as the French Championships Slope Style.

VAL THORENS CROSS-COUNTRY

There are only 4km of cross-country ski trails in Val Thorens itself. However, there are 130km of cross-country ski trails in the whole of Les 3 Vallées ski area.

Get closer to the summits and enjoy breath-taking scenery such as the Cime Caron with its 360° panoramic views of more than 1000 alpine peaks of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps or the Mont de la Chambre with its clear view of Mont Blanc. There are also various mountain restaurants along the way to stop for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink or two.

From Sunday to Friday there is a free inter-resort shuttle bus to take you from Val Thorens to St Martin de Belleville and Les Menuires

Ice Diving

Embark on a wild adventure, just a short distance from the resort; a timeless journey beneath the frozen Lac du Lou. After putting on a waterproof drysuit and diving equipment, it’s time for 20 minutes of glacial exploration. This may not qualify as an extreme sporting activity, but it certainly isn’t without its thrills; the adrenalin mounts as soon as you leave the outside world and slide beneath the surface of the ice.

You gain access to the diving site on snowshoes or touring skis (40 minutes), followed by a 30-minute ice diving session supervised by professional diving instructors (includes equipment briefing), then it’s back to the resort on snowshoes or skis. Open to anyone over the age of 16. This ski touring session and diving introduction is available from 140€.

The Après-ski in Val Thorens

With over 40 bars and 3 nightclubs, Val Thorens guarantees lively après-ski - if you want it that is – most of which can be found in the Péclet area of the resort on Rue de Gébroulaz. Yet again there is something for everyone, ranging from lively, loud and cosmopolitan to quieter, more civilised and traditional.

To name but a few, Val Thorens offers you: the chilled out ‘Rhum Box’ bar specialising in rum with over 30 different flavours to choose from, plus the normal range of drinks in a very relaxed atmosphere; ‘Le Shamrock’ and ‘O’Connells’ Irish pubs both serving surprisingly good Guinness; ‘The Frog & Roastbeef’ is British owned and at peak times has live music – will you be brave enough to take on the ‘Yard of Ale Challenge’?

‘La Bicicleta’ is part of the ten pin bowling alley so is child-friendly & is a lively venue with a prehistoric Flintstones-style décor; ‘Saloon’ specialises in cocktails; ‘Le Blanchot’ is a relaxed wine bar; ‘L’Eclipse’ is typically French; ‘Le Sabot de Vénus’ is a classy and relaxed piano bar; ‘Le Rendez-Vous’ is quiet and classy; ‘Le Moo Bar’ has a DJ, themed evenings and a pool table and ‘The Red Fox’ (in Les Balcons area) has a genuine ‘pub’ atmosphere – so you name it, Val Thorens has got it!

Some of the bars and pubs show the main football and rugby matches such as ‘O’Connells’, ‘The Shamrock’, ‘Downunder’ & ‘La Bicicleta’ (within the bowling alley) plus some also have free Wi-Fi internet access (when you buy a drink!). Many of the pubs are open till late.

However, the highlight of Val Thorens has to be the popular and renowned ‘La Folie Douce’ and the prestigious ‘La Fruitiere’ which are located at 2600m on the ski slopes, at the top of the Plein Sud and 3 Vallées chairlifts. The southern exposure makes it the sunniest place in Val Thorens, so be sure to have your sun cream plus the views of the valley are amazing. From Winter 2013/2014 the high-speed 6 seater '3 Vallées 1' chairlift will also be equipped with 4 independent cabins accessible to pedestrians and novice skiers/snowboarders – so now no one has to miss out on the fun!

You may have heard of La Folie Douce before as they can also be found in Val d’Isere and Meribel (since 1969!) and a new one is due to open in Alpe d’Huez for winter 2013-2014. It is effectively an open-air club with a very special and unique atmosphere. Open everyday from 09:00 until approximately 17:30 (when the ski lifts close), the balcony comes alive and the fun starts from around 14:00 with DJs, live musicians and singers entertaining the crowds below on the 700m2 dance floor with their funky deep house music – many are seen letting their hair down and dancing on the tables!

And don’t forget to give your fellow skiers and boarders a wave on the chairlifts as they go above you! There is even a separate VIP lounge area with huge comfy pillows, to sit back and relax. So whether it’s a mid-ski stop-pit or an après-ski gathering, La Folie Douce is a must. Tried and tested by some of the Ski Collection team, trust us leaving this place is very difficult! The ‘Nuvo-Self’ self-service restaurant serves food from 11:30 – 15:00, including hot and cold starters such as soup, salads and quiche; main meals such as burgers, sausages, steak, chicken, chips and vegetables; a selection of cheeses and daily changing desserts.

Attached to La Folie Douce you will find La Fruitiere – quite possibly one of the smartest and chic-est restaurants in Val Thorens – offering high-class dining at quite high but not outrageous prices. Open everyday from 12:00 – 15:00, you can enjoy delicious food on the large sunny terrace or inside the restaurant.

An example of the menu: hot and cold starters such as tuna & avocado tartar, foie gras ravioli, French onion soup and a selection of charcuteries; pasta dishes such as Alpine pasta tariflette style, Thai noodles with crunchy vegetables, Shitake noodles and scallops with spaghetti; fish and meat dishes such as monkfish risotto, wild sea bass steak, filet of beef with ceps and gratin potatoes, lamb shank cooked in thyme and honey, Savoy hotpot and much more; a large selection of cheeses plus desserts such as chocolate fondant, apple tarte tatin, tiramisu and apricot clafoutis. Even if you only go once, this is a must during your stay in Val Thorens!

The Partying in Val Thorens

For the party animals or those just not quite ready for bed, there are 3 nightclubs in Val Thorens: ‘Le Baramix’ has a quiet and relaxing lounge-bar on the ground floor and a nightclub in the basement – open every night from 4pm. ‘Klub Summit’ is fun and lively, combining classic rock with house hits and of course disco tunes – open every night 22:00 – 04:00.

‘Maylasia’ is the biggest club in the Alps holding up to 2500 people and has been ‘the place to be’ in Val Thorens since 1986! Live bands and DJs from all over the world play from 22:00 – 02:00 then the real ‘clubbing’ begins until closing at around 04:00.
