With an average snowfall of 603cm and the average biggest dump reaching 61cm per season, you are guaranteed some of the best conditions from November right through to May. Should that not be enough, thanks to its Three Valleys connection and the well kept ski secret that is Maurienne (the Fourth Valley), you're guaranteed excellent snow conditions all season long and some truly incredible pistes to explore.

Après Ski

With over 40 bars and 3 nightclubs there's certainly no dearth of apres ski action in Val Thorens.

Or, if you're looking to sample some Michelin standard cuisine, pay a visit to the two Michelin starred restaurant, Jean Sulpice, the highest Michelin starred restaurant in Europe.
