Val Thorens Snowpark
Val Thorens Snowpark is located on the resort's plateau area. Stretching over 70,000 sqm, this fun activity area is equipped with tables, rails and boxes, allowing visitors to improve their riding and work on their freestyle on skis or snowboards. Secure structures like the Air Jumps mean you can try this activity in complete safety. The snowpark is also the stage for many events and freestyle competitions throughout the winter.
The resort's most popular nightspot, Le Malaysia is the largest club in the Alps, attracting party-goers in their droves for over 25 years. The club has hosted the biggest DJs in the world. Every evening, the programme starts with live music and DJ sets before shifting into full nightclub mode for partying until dawn.
Cime de Caron
Rising to 3195 metres, Cime de Caron is a fascinating summit. To get there, you can take the Caron cable car, a major ski lift in the Val Thorens ski area. At the top, you can marvel at the large metal structure that marks the arrival point of the cable car. But above all, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Mont Brequin, Pointe de la Masse, and the Péclets, Thorens and Bouchet glaciers. And remember to visit the orientation table and the telescope to get your bearings.
La Tyrolienne (zip line)
A glide over 1300 metres... 1 min 45 of pure pleasure in breathtaking surroundings, from the 3 Valleys peak at 3230m, over to the top of Val Thorens. Stor et Setam took on the challenge of inventing a new link between Maurienne and Tarentaise, through the air, as the bird flies.
From Orelle to Val Thorens, suspended from a steel cable, comfortably seated in a fabric cocoon that takes you over the 100 km/h barrier, you can experience what it feels like to be a great bird of prey, soaring over open land as far as the eye can see.
An exclusive flight, crossing one of the most beautiful glacial sites in the Savoie region, in almost complete silence.
