Ski area Val Thorens-Orelle

With the lift pass "Val Thorens-Orelle" you have access to 150 km of the loveliest and most snow-sure pistes in "Les 3 Vallées". 32 lifts guarantee a quick ascent - especially the large gondola at the Cime de Caron (3,200 m). The magnificent view and the descent along the pistes are definitely an experience of a kind in this region - just breathtaking! Two lifts, the "Plan de l'Eau" and "Portette" now offer space for 6 persons and take you up to the summit comfortably.

A further highlight is the snow park, which opened in 2007 and expands over 70,000 m²! Additionally there is a 1.4 km long boardercross trail with jumping table, which is ideal for really powering out. The numerous deep powder snow areas make all free rider's hearts beat faster! The well-exercised can try out the 12 km long "Col de l'Audzin" with an altitude difference of 1,400 m, while pros can really get going on the black piste "Combe de Caron" (6 km long). For experienced and good skiers we recommend the lift pass "Les 3 Vallées". Those who book the lift pass "Val Thorens" have the possibility to upgrade their pass in resort (for a surcharge) to the "Les 3 Vallées".

In most lifts and in many mountain railway stations and restaurants in the ski area, you have access to Wi-Fi hotspots.

For all those who can't part with their skis, twice a week there is night skiing on a brightly illuminated piste (depends on time of season).
