2019 Val Thorens Piste Map

Val Thorens has confirmed that it will be opening for it’s La Grand Première Weekend on Saturday with an expected 30% of the ski area opening.

With temperatures falling this week snow cannons were at last able to operate and fill in pistes down to village level at 2300m. Ten piste bashers are currently working on getting these runs ready for the weekend.

The Brand Village area will be open for your chance to test the new models of skis, snowboards etc from a huge host of manufacturers for free and benefit from their professional advice & guidance….

Meanwhile Orelle has confirmed that it won’t open this weekend as originally scheduled (and obviously no link across from Val Thorens will be available too).
