About the Trip
Les Trois Vallées is almost certainly Europe’s best ski area. We will be staying in Val Thorens, lying at 2300m, guaranteeing us abundant high quality snow. There are over 550km of marked runs, and over 200 interconnected lifts. We can choose from among over 20 different descents, each over 6km in length. There is abundant skiing for all levels of skier and boarder.
On most days our tour operator John Schwartz offers a different ski safari 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. Most folk buy a 3-Valleys ski-pass but many simply buy a local area pass and pay a supplement for the days they wish 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!
