Val Thorens has some of the best European piste skiing, period. Piste bashers will love the varied and interesting selection of intermediate/ advanced groomed runs. Near VT itself the skiing isn amazing but its well connected to the nearby areas on your 3 Valleys pass. The only real downside is the lack of tree skiing, and if the weather is bad on a mid-winter trip the exposed slopes. ...

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. ...

Few resorts can rival Val Thorens for reliably good snow-cover, thanks to its altitude and generally north-facing slopes. Snowmaking covers a lot of the key pistes, including the crowded south- and west-facing runs on the way back from the MA...

Val Thorens is a great destination for young people travelling in groups. It lacks charm and tranquility though. But if you like to ski / snowboard and party till you ***, Val Thorens is the place to be. The ski arena is massive. Each of the 3 valleys is different, and offers something for everyone: cruising slopes, tree-lined slopes, creepy blacks, off-piste slopes etc.
This is definitely not a familie resort or a resort for beginners. ...

Had a great week in Val Thorens with excellent piste conditions; well groomed and cared for. Prices are catching up with the rest of the Three Valleys but you can still get a beer for EUR 5 if you look around, cheaper if you can get deals through your travel co. The Scandanavians and Dutch were noisy, but its all good humoured and they provide the best bar nightlife. This is a great resort with vast amounts of skiing. The off-piste was just about ok but you can see it would be fantastic and easily reachable following a big dump of snow, especially in the Arolle area. If you ski far, try to avoid lunching in Courcheval - so expensive - it cost me 26€ for a cheeseburger and another 6.5&#...
