Val Thorens 'a great bet for ski holidays'

If there is one thing that people on ski holidays want more than anything else, it is plenty of snow, and that is exactly what they will get on trips to Val Thorens, one source has noted.

The travel advice Finding the Universes noted that Val Thorens is the highest resort in Europe and so has the most enviable snowfall of all the winter sports destinations in the continent.

This means that people heading on ski weekends to the destination can benefit from a thick base of snow with a crisp surface that guarantees exceptional skiing and snowboarding during their trip.

"At the top of the Three Valleys (now with extra fourth valley!), Val Thorens is one of the highest ski resorts in France, which means it is more likely to have snow than anywhere else. The two thousand snow cannons also help," it explained.

The source added that, as Val Thorens is at the end of the Three Valleys, it means that people can ski to both Courchevel and Les Menuires easily and on the same lift pass.

As Val Thorens is a purpose built ski resort, the website noted that some people could accuse it of not having the olde worlde charms of the older, more traditional ski resorts, but this is not necessarily a bad thing.

Instead, its latitude means that there are few tree-lined pistes, so bare, open mountain side is the order of the day, providing some stunning vistas and marvellous sunsets.

"The advantages of a purpose built resort at this height are plentiful. Getting to the lifts from your accommodation involves a very short walk, while there are over 600km of pistes," the source noted.

If winter holidaymakers desire, they can also ski all the way down to Courchevel, one of France's esteemed ski resorts, and sample some the wonderful restaurants there, the website concluded.
