What’s new for winter 2020
We were there last March, just before confinement, and were able to test the quality of its tracks, ses palaces housing starred tables and spa with a view of the superb snow-capped peaks, a Brand new Club Med, the tallest igloo in Europe, the double tyrolienne Bee or even the crazy atmosphere at La Folie Douce, a sort of bar and disco terrace in the middle of the slopes! But Val Thorens also means diving under the ice at Lac du Lou, ice climbing, freeriding on glaciers, an ice circuit, the longest toboggan run in France … In apotheosis, the panorama Cime Caron, at the arrival of the cable car, is unforgettable. Emblematic peak of Val Thorens and highest point at 3,200 meters above sea level, it offers a unique 360 ° panorama of more than a thousand peaks of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps, including the south face of the majestic Mont Blanc!
