Pre-opening of Val Thorens

Enjoy the pleasures of skiing from 18 November in Val Thorens

In anticipation of the official opening of Val Thorens during La Grande Première on 25 November, we are pleased to announce the early opening of part of the ski area from 18 November.

This progress has been made possible thanks to recent snowfalls and the concerted efforts of all the resort's departments.

For impatient fans, this is an exceptional opportunity to enjoy our facilities a week earlier than originally planned!
