Val Thorens Ski Resort

As one of the eight Trois Vallees (Three Valleys) resorts, and highest in elevation, Val Thorens guarantees an unforgettable France ski vacation. The only way to truly appreciate the size and scope of this area is to compare it to the biggest North American resorts. Take Whistler, Mammoth, Squaw, Jackson Hole, and then throw in Vail and maybe Killington and Breckenridge, and you'd still have room left over in Trois Vallées.
With infinite terrain and the most sophisticated interconnected lift system in Europe, you could spend a lifetime exploring the limitless peaks and valleys, sampling all the delicious food at the fine French restaurants, and cruising through tiny villages without ever having to take off your skis. But of all the Trois Vallees resorts Val Thorens is the one you really want to ski at. As the highest ski resort in the Alps, over 10,500-plus feet, Val Thorens is magnet for snow. So be sure to bring your fat skis or powder board.
Val Thorens offers a pleasant, laid-back base village experience, with plenty of lodging options, namely ski in, ski out accommodations, and an overwhelming amount of off-mountain activities from tennis to squash to  roller hockey, badminton, volleyball, swimming and indoor football (soccer). All thanks to an immense indoor sports complex.

Ski Val Thorens 

As the highest ski area of the largest ski resort in the world, you can bet that Val Thorens offers some of the best advanced skiing on the planet.  La Masse and Cime Caron areas provide more challenging runs and wide-open above treeline solitude. This is the best on-piste area if there’s fresh snow. Intermediates can ski or board nearly everywhere due to the many blue and red runs, in fact some of Val Thorens blacks are great runs for advanced intermediates to challenge themselves. 
Beginners, especially first-timers will especially enjoy the gentle slopes at the bottom of the resort. The magic carpet is a complimentary service. And because of the resorts high alpine location, beginners at Val Thorens enjoy better conditions than others.
