Experiencing the Ultimate Ski Holiday in Val Thorens

Posted by: Brandon Fryer 2 years, 2 months ago

Whether you're trying to plan the perfect unforgettable trip, or you just want to be able to enjoy the great outdoors, nothing could be more perfect for individuals, couples, friends, and families than having a ski holiday in Val Thorens. From the crisp fresh air to the near-guarantee of snow on your visit, Val Thorens is truly a skier's paradise.

The Val Thorens ski resort is great for all types of skiers and snowboarders, from beginners to seasoned pros.

Still not convinced? Let's learn a bit more about making the most of a skiing holiday in Val Thorens.

Where Function Meets Fashion

This resort was designed with skiers in mind, so functionality has always been important. The modern design is appealing to all ages, and will really get you in the mood to hit the slopes right away.

You'll notice right away that the majority of the construction of the Val Thorens resort is in large blocks. Yes, there's a purpose for this! It allows you to get where you want to go quickly. Whether you want to get to one of the chalets, or take advantage of some of the incredible wellness spots, you can do so without worrying about getting lost or stressed out. After all, you're here to have fun and enjoy yourself, so everything should be easy to find.

Though function has taken precedence at Val Thorens, that doesn't mean the resort is out-dated. In fact, it was the first resort in the world to offer free piste-side WiFi access at varying locations throughout the premises. That means you can check in from just about anywhere, or take that perfect picture to share on social media - so everyone will know what a great time you're having!

Snow for Serious Skiers

As stated above, Val Thorens is the perfect resort for just about anyone. If you consider yourself a serious skier and want to make sure you get the best powder possible on your holiday, you're in luck.

If you purchase a full area lift pass, you'll be able to access a few other main resorts in the area, including:

There are nearly 600km of piste throughout the whole region, so even the most adventurous skiers likely won't cover everything in one trip (which sounds like the perfect excuse to come back again and again!). You'll find something new to explore and discover with each trip. Needless to say, for those who love being on the mountain, Val Thorens will quickly become a favorite location!

Because the resort is located 2300m above sea level, you can pretty much always expect snow, so you don't have to worry about your holiday being a let down because you didn't get to ski as much as you wanted.

A Family-Fun Resort

While ski holidays in Val Thorens are great for individuals, couples, and friends, they're also wonderful for family getaways.

One of the great things about Val Thorens is that it can be visited as both an early or late season ski resort thanks to its elevation and glacier access. So, you can choose a time that works best for your family and still enjoy yourselves much longer into the season than you might be able to at other resorts.

The easy ski access makes the resort perfect for even younger skiers, and you can enjoy time with your family all around the resort trying different things. If you're looking to spend some quality time with your partner while the kids are with their grandparents or other family members, you can take advantage of some of the exquisite nightlife or pamper yourself in one of the pools, saunas, or steam rooms.

Though many resorts like to throw around fancy marketing techniques and suggest they have it all, Val Thorens can really live up to that name, especially if you're looking for a quality skiing holiday that delivers on snow, fun, and functionality. Whether you want to spend the majority of your holiday relaxing in the steam room, or you want to spend every possible minute on the slopes, this resort has you covered, and you just might find it becomes a tradition to come back year after year!

We could all use a long holiday after dealing with so much uncertainty in the world, and what better way to appreciate the openness and beauty of the world than by taking advantage of beautiful, pristine slopes in Val Thorens, France?
