Who ever says that this resort is not pretty is really not giving the resort justice - with its' little streets lined with shops, especially in the snow is quite idyllic. Moving onto the skiing side of things - well the ski area just in Val Thorens is truly spectacular, with it's superb and super efficient lift system, the amount of runs are just endless! Myself and my partner still found that we had not skied every run even after 2 whole weeks skiing the area. So it has to be said that a three valleys lift pass is not really needed unless you really wanted to ski over to Meribel and Courcheval-so keep this in mind!!! The off-piste snow was really good and gave us some fantastic opportunitie
