The mountain «must haves»
Ski gear (warm, breathable underwear, headband or woolly hat, goggles and sunglasses, gloves, ski socks and ski clothes) / moonboots (or similar) to walk in the resort’s snowy streets…
Make sure you have snow chains in the car (to be attached to tyres in snow chaining area at the side of the road) or snow tyres / refuel before you drive up to Val Thorens because a full petrol tank is less likely to freeze.
It is still cheaper in the valley but retailers such as Carrefour now offer a wide range of competitively priced products / many grocery stores offer local produce / if you buy cheese or cooked meats some shops will lend you a raclette grill, fondue machine, pierrade hot stone … free of charge.
Our 3 favourite non-skiing activities:
- Adrenaline - the Cosmojet toboggan run and/or the Bee Flying zip line
- Cocooning – the massages available in the resort’s many wellness centres
- Mouth-watering - hot chocolate (around the fire) at the end of the day in one of the resort’s many restaurants
