Really gorgeous area in the three valleys and at the highest point of all, the best skiing area also. The village seems quiet off peak and some of the hotels look great even though ours was slightly budget (you get what you pay for!) avoid the tourist trap for lunch on the piste which will save you a packet! The nicest thing was the access for every other village, a 10 minute lift ride gets you to the top and from there the choice is yours! For the advanced skiers you have a good range of backcountry availiable but be advised to borrow someone who knows where there going! being so high the weather moves in very, very fast! Hope this helps.

Het is een leuk gebied, maar niet meer dan dat. Veel mensen vinden het helemaal te gek omdat het dorp op 2300 meter ligt. Daardoor zijn de afdalingen kort of tamelijk vlak. Het skigebied van Val Thorens kent onhandige aansluitingen en een aantal liften zijn sterk verouderd. Vaak drukker dan andere gebieden in Frankrijk. Apres ski is goed voor Frande begrippen.

Stayed in Val Thorens back end of February. Skiing and weather were great with plenty of runs even if you just op for the VT lift pass and not three valleys. Yes it's not the most picturesque resort and doubt you'll send a postcard home boasting but we pay our money to ski and not to sightsee as I'm sure you'll agree. Couldn't fault the skiing. Stayed in the Chalet Balcons 1 which is situated in the very top of the resort at 2400M. This is a bit of a walk from the main meeting area. Otherwise rely on a free resort bus. The chalet itself wasn't great and I certainly wouldn't go back. However, myself and the other guests couldn't fault the our chalet host Douglas who did himself proud serving

Wer Flair und Charme eines österreichischen Bergdorfes erwartet, wird bitter enttäuscht sein. Aber ernsthaft wird das wohl niemand erwarten, der nach Val Tho zum Skifahren oder Boarden fährt. Die Pisten sind selbst im Mai noch einwandfrei befahrbar, zumindest die oberen. Es geht bis auf 3200 hoch und bei guter Sicht genießt man die tolle Aussicht, u.a. auf den Mont Blanc.

Het ski gebied is helemaal top. .Je kan lange tochten maken naar oa courchevel. Goed te doen op één dag. Piste's zijn erg mooi, breed en goed onderhouden. Bewegwijzering ook goed. In het dorp hangt een gezellige sfeer. Veel eetgelegenheden, ook ruime keuze in fast food. Uitgaangsleven is zeer de moeite waard. Dit was de eerste keer maar moeten zeker nog een aantal keren terugkomen.
