We recommend  travelling from Geneva to Val Thorens would be one of the best decisions you ever make. As the cold season beckons, many of us find ourselves not so much wanting to escape the winter as wanting to embrace it. While summer holidays call to mind sun and beaches, winter holidays are best when they offer the opposite: snow and mountains.

It’s only natural. At this time of year, you would have to travel halfway around the world to find anywhere worthy of sunbathing. And yet there are perfect snowy slopes far closer than you might realise. Just a short journey from Geneva to Val Thorens uncovers the Alps, truly one of the most magnificent mountain ranges on the planet. It’s easy enough to fly or drive or catch a train towards one of the many perfectly placed cities, such as Geneva, which exist around the Alps’ foothills. But, once you’re there, how do you then get to the best skiing resorts, like Val Thorens, which Europe has to offer? And how do you ensure you are able to make the most of them?

Why Val Thorens?

Val Thorens might well be one of the most beautiful, and exciting, places on Earth. Located in the French Alpine Tarentaise valley in the Saint-Martin-de-Belleville commune in the Savoie département, it is the highest ski resort in Europe (at 2,300 metres) and the largest linked ski area in the world (with over 600km of piste). With its north-facing slopes and high altitude, Val Thorens is perfect for all levels of skier and snowboarder. Featuring 5 terrain parks and 68 runs, beginners and wannabe-professionals alike will find a multitude of environments ideal upon which to learn, to enhance or to perfect their skills.

And that’s not all. If you fancy a day or two away from the skis, the Val Thorens resort hosts a wide range of activities and pursuits: from snowmobile adventures, to tobogganing, to the infamous ‘Tyrolienne’ (an airborne shuttle which affords perhaps THE most sensational views of the Alps). Or simply while away the hours in the Sports Centre, with its luxurious spa, swimming pool, gym, fun park and wellness facilities.

And then, at the end of each day, be sure to check out the resort’s wide range of restaurants and eateries which cater for all palates and budgets. Following that, the ‘Dance Floor on Top of the World’ will be sure to keep you partying into the wee hours… providing you’ve still got any energy left!
