In November

In November

NOVEMBER, early-season snow and snowsports

Halfway between a playful, re-energising autumn, and a winter full of promise and adventure, November invites you to embark on new experiences, swapping your trainers for skis or a snowboard. The days are shorter, the summits white, and the call of the mountains has never been so powerful. You’ve been waiting for weeks, months even to release the emotion that have been building up since the end of last winter.

Well, now you can start dreaming about skiing again: welcome to Les 3 Vallées in November!

1. Enjoy the latest fall colors

November is ideal to enjoy the latest colors offered by Mother Nature. Take time to escape from day-to-day and to admire inspiring and peaceful nature. It's time for family reunion.

Oblique light and a dazzling palette of colors are ideal to take amazing pictures. Lots of souvenirs to bring back home.

2. Being at the opening of Val Thorens

Opening season in Les 3 Vallées

This is a very unique, long-awaited experience. Whether you’re a snowsports fan or an accomplished sportsperson, the opening of Val Thorens’ ski slopes is an event not to be missed.

Nestling at an altitude of 2,300 metres, the highest resort in Europe welcomes its first skiers from the end of November. 
This is a unique and unmissable event for ski enthusisasts. At the end of November, Val Thorens unites skiers from around the globe for "The Grande Première", a larger than life outdoor event that brings skiers and brands together for two days of free equipment trials. It’s the perfect time to warm up, hone your technique, share tips, advice and news whilst getting ready for the coming winter season.


3. The delight of skiing for a weekend

As the ski areas gradually re-open, so do the hotels and restaurants. There’s no need to wait until December and the onset of the school holidays to get away for a weekend or a week on the slopes. If you fancy leaving your tracks in the untouched snow in the tranquil lead-up to the winter season, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
