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

Ga nu al een paar jaar naar Val Thorens en telkens bevalt het mij, hoewel ik Meribel wel gezelliger vind maar daar valt er s avonds niets te beleven. Enige spijtige is dat er geen aprés ski is, dat vind je dan wel terug in Oostenrijk! Appartementen zijn ook maar alles behalve, zeker voor wat je betaald! Ons beste appartementen waren in Meribel! Valtho is een echte aanrader voor gevordende en een dagje Courchivel is ook een aanrader! Wel doorskiën anders geraak je er niet

Val thorens is high so it has the best snow conditions of les trois vallees. it also has excellent skiing on a variety of long runs with large vertical s and the opportunity to ski on a glacier. i prefer to stay at mottaret because it is in the middle of les trois vallees with easy access to val thorens, courchevel and the other ski stations. however, in a lean snow year i would stay at val thorens to maximize the chance for good conditions.

Visited VT in March (18th - 25th March). The resort is very good for skiing but night life is poor! Too many drunken Dutch guys, so men out number women 10 - 1. If you want a more rounded resort, go for Austria, try Soll or Mayrhofen, the skiing is almost on a par and the night life is far better.

I dont go skiing for nice authentic villages etc. Just loads of fresh snow, big pistes & good lift network and some good restaurants and bars is whats needed. Val Thorens (together with Tignes & Les Arcs) is one of the best to stay. Great skiing on & off-piste. Though it may be pretty cold in January & February. Also the French holidays are usually in last three weeks of February which means lot of queuing for the Cime de Caron which brings you to some exciting pistes. So best time to go to Val Thorens is March & April.
