The Resort


Val Thorens

Found close to the slopes, ski lift and pistes of Val Thorens, with ski in ski out facilities, the Residence le Cheval Blanc is ideal for those wanting to explore the area. The picturesque surroundings make this a popular place for hikers and other activities, while there is something for beginners as well as more advanced skiers to try during their stay here.

Ski Area

The Val Thorens resort can be found at an altitude of 2300 metres, the highest ski resort in Europe, meaning the conditions are excellent throughout much of the ski season. Offering access to the largest linked ski area in the world, the 3 Valleys ski area, this is ideal for keen skiers looking for a challenge, as well as newbies looking to learn. There is a range of ski schools to choose from, with almost all of the instructors speaking both French and English, as well as an excellent selection of terrain in the 3 Valleys. The 3 Valleys is situated at an altitude of 1800 m to 3230 m and offers visitors over 600 km of well looked after slopes. There are 11 green runs, 30 blue, 31 red and eight black slopes to choose from, as well as plenty of off-piste trails. And with stunning views from the top, you’ll want to take the chair lift up again and again.



With access to the huge mountainous region of the 3 Valleys, there are plenty of activities for families, couples and groups in Val Thorens as well as the wider area. Ice diving is a must for those wanting to try something involving lots of adrenaline and involves diving into the crystal clear but freezing cold waters of the Lac du Lou, while airbagging will have you jumping from the falls onto an air cushion. It doesn’t get much scarier than that!

For a more sedate way to explore the area there is also hiking, with snow shoes available to rent from the sports shops in the town centre. And for something the whole family can enjoy why not take everyone dog sledding on your holiday in Val Thorens?
