November 23rd is the first day of the official winter season in Val Thorens. The lifts are all set to whirl into action signalling the start of what we hope will be an epic ski season in the 3 Valleys.

The other Three Valleys resorts of Meribel and Courchevel will open shortly after. With 330km of ski slopes and 71 ski lifts, the highest resort ski resort in Europe is waiting to be explored so grab your skis and boards and come and join us!

This winter Val Thorens unrolls the red carpet to all lovers of sliding for an official launch of the season on November 23rd with La Grande Première, the must-see event for ski fans and snow addicts. On the program: free tests and introductions of all the new products, ski, snow, accessories and much more!

Throughout the weekend, many activities will be organised including a mini snowpark, big air bag, trampoline for snow scooters, ski area and carving zone.
