Val Thorens, France
It’s Europe’s highest ski resort, part of the famous Le Trois Vallees, a series of interconnected resorts offering a mega 600km of ski runswith crazy-beautiful views.
But that doesn’t mean the lofty Val Thorens is for serious snow bunnies only – in fact, a good chunk ofthis resort is designed to accommodate newbies, with 11 green slopes and I blue runs (the kind you’ll be sticking to if you’re a first-timer). There’s a learning area, so you can sharpen your skills before hitting the hills, and thanks to its altitude, you can count on plenty of snow from November to May.
Being a learner will save you cash here, too – there’s a half-price lift pass for beginners, as you’ll only need to access the easy slopes. Off the piste, you’ll get the chance to learn first-hand exactly what the European ski season is all about – we’re talking raclette (aka delicious melted cheese), swish spas and chic, cosy chalets.
