The only way to truly appreciate the size and scope of this area is to compare it to the biggest North American resorts.

Take Whistler, Mammoth, Squaw, Jackson Hole, and then throw in Vail and maybe Killington and Breckenridge, and you'd still have room left over in Trois Vallées.

With infinite terrain and the most sophisticated interconnected lift system in Europe, you could spend a lifetime exploring the limitless peaks and valleys, sampling all the delicious food at the fine French restaurants, and cruising through tiny villages without ever having to take off your skis.

With this France ski vacation you will see that at 2,300 meters Val Thorens is the highest village in the Trois Vallees Region. This area is vast and varied; it has some of the best expert/advanced skiing on the planet! From La Masse (2,805 meters) or Cime Caron (3,200 meters) the steeps, the powder, and the solitude are the essence of skiing, the epitome of the experience!

Ralph in Portsmouth

Val Thorens is "Off The Charts!"

I am 60 years old and have skiied all over the Eastern US , Western US, Canada & Europe.
Val Thorens is the biggest and best place I have been. Other places that I have been that I really like are: Solden, Kitzbuhl, Cortina, Courmayeur/Chamonix, Val d' Isere Sugarbush, Aspen, Steamboat, Squaw, Vail, Telluride, Etc., but, Val Thorens/Meribel/Courcheval has them ALL beat.
Incredible lift system, terrain, scenery, food & fun. It's humungous!

I didn't know what to expect when visiting Val Thorens as I really hadn't heard much about it or seen much of it prior to my arrival.  Our ascent up to the area was a long one winding up from the valley floor, passing through neighboring Les Menuires ski area as the lower treed in runs were quickly replaced by wide open and seemingly endless high alpine bowl skiing.  When we finally arrived at the resort I discovered it was featured a much more quaint mountain village area than most resorts in the Alps of similar scale.  Just about every lodging establishment in the area is true ski-in/out and, as the village is so concentrated, within easy walking distance of everything the area has to offer.

This resort puts its focus far more on the skiing than anything else.  While the village features plenty of things to do including a large indoor park and a wide range of dining options the real attraction is the huge amount of terrain and far smaller crowds than similar resorts.  Because the entire village is ski-in/out, guest can book lodging of any quality level and be sure they can always step out their door and onto the slopes.

Val Thorens sits on one end of Les Trois Valles which is the largest ski area in the world and gives the resort direct ski access to Meribel, Courchevel and a number of smaller resorts as well.  If your primary concerns are ease of access and incredible terrain, this resort is as good a value as there is in the Alps.  That said, the fact that it is the highest resort in the area and more snow-sure than just about any other resort in the country, along with the extremely reasonable price point, are fantastic bonuses.
