Review 22/06/2010
The slopes in Val Thorens are great, for both beginners and intermediate skiers. Having the freedom to venture into the sistering resorts of Meribel and Courcheval is great to get a slight change of scenery throughout the holiday. The apartments are not at all far from the slopes and the snow stays long enough into the off season, for a slightly warmer skiing holiday.

Review 29/11/2009
I worked here during the 2008/2009 season. I'd rate myself as an advanced skier, as I am an instructor. The skiing: 7/10. VT has a variety of runs to cater for all abilities. And the snow usually holds well due to the high altitude of the resort. For some truly epic runs go into the Orelle valley next door which has un-crowded slopes, beautiful views, astonishing challenging terrain and you can ride one of the highest chairlifts in Europe! Resort: 6/10 Compared to its 3 valleys sisters, Meribel and Courchevel, VT is the ugly duckling. However, it does host a good variety of restaurants and bars - the latter of which will keep you going way into the early hours. Suitability: This is not really a resort for young families. You won't find many French families here, as they know it really is an Ibiza on snow. It is suited to young groups, 18-30 types who want to ski hard and party hard... Overall 6/10

Review 22/01/2009
WOW ! The 3 valleys are huge! VT is big enough on its own, if you were a beginner, but the 3V area is massive. You'll never be stuck for new slopes. It is however quite expensive to drink/eat/live so take plenty of cash.

Review 21/01/2009
We stayed at the Hotel Portillo over New Year 2008/9 - the resort & snow were excellent. Ski school was excellent. The hotel could be better suited with children in mind. Would recommend self catering.

Review 10/04/2008

I have to say, for early April, it doesn't get ANY better than Val Thorens for snow! I have been to many European resorts and never have I seen so much powder and lifts open at the end of the season. I reckon they can just stay open all year round! The ski area is amazingly linked and great for off piste, I recommend going to the furthest runs in the resort near the boarder cross and thus the highest ski lift 3250 ft high! As the runs there were almost untouched and the best off piste I have ever experienced. Val Thorens is now a regular destination for me and my friends.
