More early season snow in the Alps - Val Thorens opens early
More early season snow in the Alps - Val Thorens opens early
10th Nov 09
Great news as more snow falls in many Alpine resorts in the last week or so.

With about 55 cm of snow in the village and 85 cm at the top, Val Thorens is opening earlier than expected. Five lifts will be running, two chairs, two drags and the Funitel de Péclet - allowing access to about 10 green, blue and red slopes between 2300m and 3000 metres.

The lifts will open at 08:45 and run all day until 16:45. A reduced price lift pass will be on sale at 21€ for adults for the day and 17€ for children aged between five and 12 years.

With the Vancouver Winter Olympics not far off, the resort is expecting championship hopefuls to descend on the resort to get some early season practice on French snow, so you cold find yourself skiing with the stars!
