  Val Thorens is Europe's highest ski resort and part of the enormous Trois Valles ski area. Set in a huge bowl surrounded by mountain peaks and five glaciers, it boasts the best snow record and longest season in the Alps. Every level and style of skiing is catered for, with the pistes varying from wide gentle runs to bumpy moguls and deep powder. The huge ski area is accessed by an excellent lift system, covered by three different passes. With 8 snowparks around the ski area, boarders are equally well catered for. The snowpark in the Caron area is wired for sound.

The village is traffic free, and has plenty to offer. The sports centre has a swimming pool with a hammam, indoor tennis, squash, a climbing wall and a roller-blade rink. Shopping is good and there are plenty of restaurants, lively bars, concerts, clubs and discos. Although tour operator ski parties are much in evidence, the resort is big enough to be able to find some quieter apres ski entertainment.
