Val Thorens is what we like to call a stage 1 ski resort meaning it has been purpose built for skiing. Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe lying above the tree line at 2300m. it is a ski –in-ski-out resort. We selected Va Thorens because of its height but also its massive ski area, with 600km of ski slopes. It is the largest ski area in the world and the season runs from November – May giving us the longest season out of all our Pure resorts.

With a large range of accommodation as well as France’s best ski hotel Val Thorens is a resort for those who like the finer things in life. Off the slopes you can enjoy tobogganing, ice driving experience in a Subaru as well as a zip line for when you just haven’t had enough of an adrenaline rush from the day’s skiing. The town has a good amount of restaurants and bars to keep you busy to the early hours of the morning!

Be sure to stop by the legendry Le Folie Douce for an afternoon après ski session that will blow your mind. We would advise to take a ski guide to really take advantage of the ski area as it’s easy to get lost with 600km of skiing.
