Val Thorens FAQ’s

What lift pass will I need for the lessons?

Beginners will not need a lift pass for day 1 as there is a free beginner area at the foot of the pistes. Your instructor will tell you when you need to buy a lift pass.

All other groups will need a Val Thorens – Orelle valley lift pass for your lessons. There is such vast range of terrain on our doorstep in Val Thorens, so we normally don’t go into the Three Valleys in our groups although higher level skiers might want to explore outside of lessons. Day upgrades can be bought for this purpose.

You can find Val Thorens lift pass prices here.

What happens if I’m in the wrong group?

We do our best to ensure that this doesn’t happen during the booking process. If your instructor feels that you are in the wrong group however we will do our best to move you into a more suitable level.
