The slopes are mind boggling at Val Thorens. There are all types of runs. We chose the black and red, and there are plenty of them. There were hardly any queues at the lifts and all personnel were so friendly.
There were plenty of restaurants and bars, if so inclined, and also fast food for a quick and reasonable lunch snack, as opposed to the higher priced mountain restaurants.
Had a really good time; plenty of snow.
Val Thorens is higher than the tree line with no natural barriers for sound, so some nights were noisy with returning travellers.
All in all, we had a good time.
