Main Topic :

Val Thorens is one of the 3 Valleys: Courchevel, Meribel, and Val Thorens

  • Getthing there: Geneva about 2hrs 30min ride.

  • Avalanche Risk 4/5 right now

  • Said to be more designed around function over form centered around skiing.

  • Above the treeline and almost guaranteed to have great snow.

  • Highest resort in Europe

  • Ski from Val Thorens to Courchavel can be done in 3 lifts over about 45 minutes but you should plan to start coming back by aroun 2pm to make it through about 5 lifts back

  • Suggestion is to stay in sun which hits different sides of valley at different times of the day. Also watch weather because snow could trap you in whatever valley you are in so suggest to stay in home valley to avaoid getting stuck.

  • Great Apres sKi and clubs. La Folle Duce

  • Michelin Star restaurants and lots of ameneties
