Along with Les Menuires, Val Thorens is at the top of the most westerly of the 3 Valleys - Vallee de Belleville. With the village situated at 2300m and the highest run starting at 3200m, this is another resort that can boast an excellent snow record. With access to Meribel and Courchevel, the variety of terrain is huge. Val Thorens has its own snowboard park which is right near the town. Be aware that It can be very cold here at night and the drive up from Moutiers takes around 45 minutes on a good day.
Do not be misled by the map, Grenoble Airport is actually situated half-way between the cities of Grenoble and Lyon so transfers from here may take longer than you think! Airlines using this destination include EasyJet and Monarch.There are two routes from here either on the motorway (faster by 10-15 mins) or the more direct and very picturesque route through Chartreuse. Your driver will be happy to take either provided there are no time constraints.
