Val Thorens is located in the Tarentaise valley in the French Savoy Alps. Its elevation of 2300 m offers a stunning natural environment and scenery with a surprising amount of sunlight and exceptional snow conditions. The entire resort’s development is guided by the motto “Live United”.
The strength of Val Thorens is the unity of all the tourism facilities, which has allowed the centre to grow and meet client expectations. The centre is a part of 3 ski resorts, which are interconnected by more than 600 km of runs, making it one of the largest combined ski resorts in the world.
Val Thorens can boast not only the title of the highest elevated ski resort in Europe, but also has the right to be called the best ski resort in the world. In the past four years, the Val Thorens resort has won its third title of best ski report and was elected the best resort in France for the fourth consecutive time in 2017 at the World Ski Awards, which were held in the Austrian ski resort of Kitzbuehel.
What’s more, the luxurious Val Thorens resort will open the World Cup in Ski Cross and Snowboard Cross before the Olympic Games in PyeongChang. Visitors can meet two of the most important athletes in Val Thorens: Jean Frédéric Chapuis, gold medallist in ski cross at the last Olympics, and Chloe Trespeuch, silver medallist from the Olympics in Sochi.
