Things to do
In winter, Val Thorens and the Three Valleys become snowsports playgrounds. Ski your way through hundreds of miles of runs, or brush up your technique in a private class. Head off-piste on a cross-country tour, or, for something different, join a guided glacier walk. In summer, swap white snow for white water and go rafting or kayaking on the region’s rivers.
Val Thorens offers plenty of fun pastimes for children of all ages. Little ones can enjoy sledging, splashing about in the local pool, or getting involved in snowman building contests. Families with older kids could take a hair-raising ride on the world’s highest zipwire, which flies over the Belleville Valley. When it’s warm, book a canyoning tour to climb up (and slide back down) waterfalls.
From world-class races to local craft markets, there’s always something going on in Val Thorens. Watch pro skiers, snowboarders and even Raleigh drivers take on the snow. Be part of the magical torch lit parades leading up to Christmas, or try your hand at ice sculpting. On long summer evenings, look out for open-air concerts around the resort.
