Overall

Great resort situated in the highest region of the Three Valleys. Unique destination voted Europe & the Worlds top ski resort. The village is sun facing and on a clear day the views are breathtaking Plenty of 'extras' to this resort. Try the thrill of the toboggan run, or strap your skis/board to your back and scoot between two mountains on the zip wire. Your adrenalin is certain to receive a severe work out ;) Apres is off the hook in VT. Folle Douche swings into action early afternoon and then ski back to the resort centre to continue the party. At the base of the slopes in the thick of the action you will find a wide range of bars and restaurants and to finish the night off the famous night club 'Malaysia', the largest nightclub in the Alps, welcomes you to its underground home. Let the beats begin ... VT = top slopes, top fun factor, top of the mountain snow excellence.

Apres Ski: 5/5

Val Thorens - excellent for skiers of all abilities - 04/04/2013
Overall

Just returned from our 6th trip to Val Tho. Brilliant for a mixed group of skiers such as ours, including absolute beginners and black run skiers and boarders. The huge ski area of the Three Valleys means that after 6 years there are still just a few runs we haven't skied, and even on busy days the area can cope with lots of people. Height means that we have never had poor snow - even at Easter. Views from the top of the higher lifts are breathtaking! True, being above the tree line and purpose built in concrete, the village is not picturesque in anyway, and exists solely for the skiing. On the plus side this means that it conveniently provides all necessities. The nursery slope goes through the center of town with several hotels' boot rooms fronting on to it (we stay at the Val Chaviere - 2 steps from ski room to slope), this is a huge boon for those of us with some who ski all day and some who don't. A good range of medium quality restaurants, few really excellent. The nightlife is plentiful and good for our party of teenage and twentysomething children, and sports fans, but those on the look out for a quiet bar may have to stay in the hotel or search hard for the few that don't turn into party venues after hours. (John's Scandi is a favourite place for a good meal or a glass of wine). We've only once had the energy post skiing to go down the toboggan run but it was much enjoyed. We occasionally go to the bowling alley to spend collected Euro coins with the younger ones on arcade games and pool tables, and the gauffre (waffle) stall is a must every visit. A resort for those who going skiing to ski rather than to pose - not much room here for your furs!

Apres Ski: 4/5
