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.

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.

How can I get to resort?

If you’re arriving by air then the following transfer companies offer airport transfers, either private or sometimes shared:

3 Valley Transfers

Snowbound Transfers to Val Thorens
Reliable airport transfers & ski resort transfers to Val Thorens

A reasonably priced, efficient and friendly transfer service

Premier private transfer solution!

Snow White Transfers
A reliable, professional service offering private and shared transfers to Courchevel, Meribel, St Martin and Val Thorens.

There are buses from the airport but you will need to change at Moutiers and they’re not cheap so if they is a few of you it often cheaper to share a transfer.

The train is the cheapest option but again this will involve several changes and the trains are somewhat infrequent.
