Lets get a few things straight. Val Thorens is the highest ski station in Europe. You go their to ski and for the snow reliability. Anyone who thinks VT is one of the ugliest resorts around was obviously asleep of the transfer as they passed Les Menuires and has never been to Flaine. If it is a pretty alpine town you are looking for then go to Austria or Switzerland. VT is a lot more attractive than a lot of other resorts but it is designed for a reason - to cater for large numbers of people who want to ski as opposed to shopping and eating.
The skiing is great with a wide range of runs for all levels easily accessed from all the accommodation. It provides excellent access to the rest of the
