The ski resort of Val Thorens is the highest in Europe and a paradise for skiing in all its forms. It lies at the foot of an impressive rock and ice peak of 3,300 meters: The Aiguille de Péclet.

This ski resort has an enviable spread over 140 km of runs and an exceptional vertical drop of 1,430 meters. Thanks to its altitude, you find 8 ski areas above 3,000 meters, this will enable you to enjoy an exceptional snow from late November to mid-May.
Furthermore, we must add that most of the skiable terrain of the site exceeds the 2,000 meters above sea level. Another reason to enjoy Val Thorens is their modern lifts with a capacity of 52,000 skiers per hour.

The ski resort of Val Thorens belongs to Les 3 Vallées ski area, the largest in the world and one of the most prestigious of the Alps in France. This extensive region has 600 kilometers of pistes and a vertical drop of 2,160 meters. It consists of eight ski resorts: Courchevel, La Tania, Méribel, Brides-Les-Bains, Les Menuires - Saint Martin, Val Thorens and Orelle.

The huge amount of slopes and its ski area make this winter resort a perfect destination for any skier, even for those who prefer to enjoy the snow in a more quiet way.

The proximity of the tracks, the great variety of tracks and their widths, the possibility of making large out tracks and the altitude of these, giving the possibility to have incredible views. The ski lifts are the best of the best, there is no complaint, France will always go a step ahead to the stations of the Catalan Pyrenees.
Unfortunately, it has not snowed before, there were very few open trails and Orelle was greener than in spring. But this is already a thing of time.

The domain and variety of clues. The situation of the town. Great variety of activities apart from skiing. Complete shopping area, restaurants and nightlife.
Not being able to park the vehicle during the ski season on the street. Mandatory payment pàrquing. Free non-existent WiFi

Automatic translation from catalan Show message in original language
It coincided with several very generous snowfalls that allowed us to ski perfectly.
It seems that they do not hurry to open clues, many of them were closed and in perfect conditions for skiing.

Snow, ski lifts, Folie Douce, number and length of tracks.
Many tracks of natural bumps made by not fixing them enough.

Quality of the snow and its ski lifts. Qualitative and qualitative difference insurmountable for any Pyrenean station. If you have never come, you are wasting your time.
They could have opened a lift more than they had, I guess it was not because it was the beginning of the season. Of all the set of the three Valleys, only valthorens were open and there was plenty of snow to open menuires, meribel and courchebel. (A lot of anger) This is France, do not expect to have the après-ski of the Spanish bars and restaurants. Neither in culture nor in price.

A station at the level of the best in the world. Excellent lifts, excellent snow and spectacular outside tracks.
There is no wifi in the station is quite painful for the quality of other services. The staff has a level track a little basic English and it becomes difficult to get along with them. Extortionate prices in bars and cafes to door, for example a powerade or 50 cl Fanta cost you between 5 and 6 euros, a latte 4.5 or 5 euros, a sandwich with potatoes between 15 and 19 euros.

Snow tracks all excellent even with little snow had.
No wiffi or in the room, and in bars or restaurants works very badly. I think in this and in the times we are if should be a major improvement.

To enjoy this season thoroughly you must have a good level of skiing, beginners area is good but lacks green slopes to practice, for intermediate and advanced levels is fine, the staff of the lifts are always attentive and facilities allow a very smooth access even when many skiers come together, a variety of restaurants and cafes on tracks and have a cabin-club with great atmosphere in the middle of a track ending the day skiing with very good animation :)
Did not get to go to the other two valleys stand lifts connecting the reason was the lack of snow so it is not attributable to the station there is still enough clues to not get bored.

Excellent location, since QE is on the piste. Good services, shopping, entertainment and dining areas very well located
Since it is a very frequently visited by Spanish resort, I think we should have more information in Spanish and personnel services dominate language
