Hotels close to the pistes
You're never too far from the pistes in Val Thorens with the local shuttle buses but some of the hotels have direct ski in / ski out access for a reasonable price. In Les Menuires, 3-star Hillary Hotel is situated near the Doron chairlift and close to the pistes, so you can ski right to its door and enjoy an après-ski drink on its sunny terrace or relax in its sauna after a long day on the slopes. In the centre of Val Thorens, very close to the pistes as well as the shops, restaurants and bars in the resort, is the Tango Hotel, offering stylish rooms, a complete spa with beauty treatments and massages and a very lively bar with live music in the evening. At Val Chaviere Hotel you can put your boots on in their ski room and slide directly onto the slopes. When you return to the hotel in the evenings, take part in one of their fondue nights with live music or relax in their games room.
For those on a tighter budget, the UCPA is located just within a 15-minute walk from the centre of resort, bang in the middle of the pistes. They offer a fully inclusive package, lift pass, equipment hire, instructors, breakfast, lunch and dinner plus they put on an entertainment programme each week to give you extra things to do once the sun goes down.
