Variety is huge. Area is massive. It’s getting busier nowadays with more hotels arriving each year in Val Thorens. My advice, stay in VT but ski to Méribel and beyond.

Very well kept slopes and the quality of the snow is exceptional, of course that is because of the high altitude of this ski station.

As Europe was baking in an April heatwave, I went to Val Thorens which was still covered in deep snow. It has a huge range of listed, catering to different levels including beginners and nervous intermediate skiers but also the more intrepid skiers.

Val Thorens is the highest ski village in Europe and part of the biggest ski area in the world. The slopes are fantastic and off piste goes on forever. Snow is nearly always great due to the high altitude. Unfortunately it's not a good place...More

The 3 valleys where val thorens is located is by far the best ski area I know and val thorens is the highest village making it a snow sure for the longest possible season
