Everything about Val Thorens is big and bold, huge pistes, long wide runs and plenty to do. When the lifts close it is one of the best resorts for Apres Ski. It doesn have the snobby crowds found in the other 3 Valley resorts, instead Val Thorens has the top of the world frontier out post feel. They party like its the last night on Earth. Maybe it is the altitude or the mass of Dutch and Scandanavians here but it just has a rought and ready feel to it.
