Val Thorens, the highest village in Europe, in the 3 Vallées area
While Val Thorens has an international reputation, it remains first and foremost the highest village in Europe. At an altitude of 2,300 metres, the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else. The resort is semi-pedestrian, with traditional and modern urban spaces scattered around.
Take advantage of this amazing location in the heart of the biggest ski area in the world, 3 Vallées, with over 600 km of ski runs.
You can ski directly to the resort’s entrance, amidst its 78 slopes. Here, snow sports reign supreme in all forms and at all levels, with snow parks, boardercross, a kids’ area, a slalom stadium and a 6 km luge track.
