Les Trois Vallées is almost certainly Europe’s best ski area. We stay in Val Thorens, at 2300m, guaranteeing us abundant high quality snow. There are over 550km of marked runs, and over 200 interconnected lifts. There is abundant skiing for all levels of skier and boarder.
Our tour operator John Schwartz offers various ski safaris to experienced skiers, including a 10,000 Vertical Metres Day: explore the entire three valley circuit, neither skiing the same run, nor taking the same lift more than once, and an all black run day. There is abundant opportunity for off-piste skiing. FSC recommends only going off-piste fully-equipped with a qualified guide.
The area includes gems such as Courcheval, Les Menuires and Meribel. You can buy a 3-Valleys ski-pass or a local area pass and pay a supplement to explore other valleys.
Val Thorens has a dynamic après-ski life, if you still have the energy. We also often have room parties. There is also a huge indoor pool and sauna facility nearby. The ski-in/ski-out apartments are well equipped and offer free Internet and TV. Most of the trippers will be regulars who come year in / year out!
Special deal - there is a significant early discount on the skipass if you buy it when you sign up for the trip.
The overnight bus Friday night gives us the opportunity to ski Saturday - 7 days skiing in total. The return bus will be approx 8:30 am on Saturday 2nd April. Self-drivers get a 100€ discount.
