It still has the tranquality of a small French village whilst being connected to one of the largest ski areas in Europe. Just because it has a small town does not mean that it does not have great amenities. Orelle has its own ski school, rental, two restaurants, two bars and two small supermarkets.

Location and surroundings

Val Thorens

Skiing in Val Thorens

Val Thorens is the highest located French ski resort and the city center is at an altitude of 2300 metres! From here there are many ski lifts to even higher located slopes. The village of Val Thorens is located in the ski resort with the same name, Val Thorens. Together with the ski areas Les Menuires, Méribel and La Vallée de Courchevel, Les Trois Vallées is one of the largest contiguous ski areas in the world. Overlooking several glaciers, the Val Thorens ski area offers a variety of routes so that skiers of all levels can enjoy this beautiful area.

 

Lift pass

When you book a ski trip to Val Thorens including a lift pass for Val Thorens, you can choose to extend it to the ski area Les Trois Vallées. For the not so advanced skier, a lift pass to Val Thorens is usually enough.

For those who want to discover more and make long journeys, it is best to buy a lift pass for the entire Trois Vallées area. Les Trois Vallées is the largest adjacent ski area in the world. With 185 lifts and 600 kilometers of beautiful slopes, you will go on a true journey of discovery here. We recommend that you choose to extend your lift pass already when booking, as you will pay significantly more for it in Val Thorens. (Please note that no lift passes for Trois Vallées are sold during the early or late season).

 

Lots of activities beyond skiing

If you are tired of the long skis or your snowboard, then you can choose between one of the many other activities that the ski area has to offer. How about discovering different hiking trails, a helicopter flight, soaring at 100 km / h on the zipline "La Tyrolienne" high above the slopes or mountain biking over the snow?
