Skier’s favorite destination
The owner from Skier gave us at Ratoong feedback from his skiing adventures! He has given Val Thorens top marks throughout due to his fantastic time. Val Thorens is for him a top place he has visited. “I love that the city is so high, there are several different mountain sides, there are fast lifts and rarely long queues outside weeks 7 and 8”. You can get speed down the slopes and there is plenty of space to carve, the snow safety is in peak and the season starts end of November and extends until Easter.
In addition, Val Thorens hass world-class après ski, which is, among other things, La Folie Douce as most people know as “Afterski place to be” in France, there is dancing on the tables and saxophone music, if that’s not your scene then there is a DJ who gives it max gas. Otherwise you can go to Bar360 which is the alternative to La Folie Douce and some cheaper alcohol and a slightly larger dance floor. When the 2 bars close, you can go to Saloon down in the city and on to the Malaysia bar.
In addition to après ski and fast lifts, there are many restaurants where it is possible to have a good dining experience, there are many different options ranging from tapas, American meals, pizza, burger or the completely expensive gastronomic experience with the expensive wine list. You can read more about Val Thorens if you click here.
