The ski area goes up as high as 3,230 metres and there is even a zip wire linking Orelle to Val Thorens where you are put into a harness, skis strapped to your back and then sent on your way at approx 80km per hour speed!

There are many lively bars and restaurants on the slopes such as The Folie Douce and Bar 360 for some Apres Ski drinks and dancing followed by the live bands and acts in the town centre bars. Val Thorens boasts the largest night club in the Alps called ‘Malaysia’ which has live bands on rather than a DJ most nights for a few hours.

When the ski lift links are open access to Les Menuires, Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania offer you the largest ski area in the World for a daily or weekly supplement.
