Visitor Reviews of Val Thorens
Stephen from United Kingdom writes:
Very much a good skiers resort. Just back from a week before Christmas. At 2300m so feels Arctic at times (especially noticed when you ski back from Meribel or Courchevel). No trees in sight but plenty of high quality skiing with great snow. Stayed at Les Balcons which is ski in-ski out for a good skier (just off a red piste). Lovely apartments with gym, pool, supermarket and ski hire in the complex. Highly recommended.
