For groomed pistes and amazing offpiste skiing Val Thorens (part of Les Trois Vallées) is open from mid November to early May.
Enjoy the vast amount of piste skiing the Three Valleys offers (600 km of sheer pleasure!) and make the most of the customer friendly infrastructure. There are a staggering 318 marked ski slopes between 1300 and 2200 metres altitude and all can be reached easily. Les Trois Vallées also offer world class restaurants and entertainment.
