The French call it 'glisse'. More fun than glide, and way sexier than slide, big-mountain glisse is what it's all about in Val Thorens. Meaning it doesn't matter whether you are a skier or a snowboarder - a racer, a freestyler a carver or a freerider - the resort's great snow, long season and outstanding alpine terrain make it possible for just about any glisse enthusiast to find something to rave about. Accessible and fun or more technical and demanding as you leave the lifts behind, the Val Thorens ski area also boasts an impressive 1430m vertical drop (from 1800m-3230m). So with the rest of the 3Valleys to explore, what are you waiting for? Get in the glisse!
