LUXURY SKI HOLIDAYS IN VAL THORENS
Val Thorens is now one of the most successful resorts in the Alps. Given the high altitude of Val Thorens and the Glacier de Péclet the often large volume of snow means that the resort is usually open from mid-November until early May. The highest ski-able peaks are Pointe du Bouchet (3220m) and Cime de Caron (3200m), with its cable car of the same name, one of the biggest in the world with a capacity of 150+1 passengers.
Many of the slopes in Val Thorens face north and north-west, providing good snow conditions. This means that the slopes are not as sunny, so the resort tends to attract a crowd more interested in skiing than "terracing". However, the resort itself faces south, and many people enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine when they have finished skiing. Val Thorens has a total of 68 marked runs, and several terrain parks. The main snow park sees top level freestyle competitions every winter as it hosts a stage of the national SFR Slopestyle Tour, and the ski cross arena is frequently visited by the FIS Skier X World Cup. Jean-Fred Chapuis, who won the Skier X event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, hails from Val Thorens and the ski cross track is named after him.
Val Thorens is the most visited international ski resort in France: more than 70% of its visitors are foreigners. While one will find people from all over the world in Val Thorens, British, Scandinavian, Belgian, Dutch and German tourists make up the majority.
The winter holiday resort of Val Thorens offers a wide range of restaurants from Michelin-starred venues to traditional family restaurants. If holidaying in Val Thorens you can choose between 60 places to eat while staying in one of our luxury chalets. Enjoy an authentic Savoyard meal in a mountain restaurant and stop at Chez Pépé Nicolas on the “La Chasse” slope, between Val Thorens and Les Menuires. It offers stunning views of the Péclet Polset Glacier and the Lou Valley. Steakhouse Club 72 is perfect for music lovers - take a drink on the terrace, eat a snack and listen to the music chosen by the DJ.
One of the best places for fondue and raclette is Au Mazot, a romantic and rustic restaurant. For gourmet dining we recommend Michelin-awarded restaurant Les Explorateurs at Hôtel Pashmina.
