The best evening activities in Val Thorens

So you're on a family holiday in Val Thorens - the highest ski resort in the French Alps - and you've spent your day zooming down the slopes. You've enjoyed every minute, but it's the evening and you want a change of scene. You're not ready to wind down just yet, so what do you do?


Although you're in a ski resort, there's lots more activities on offer than just skiing. Whether you're a couple, a group of friends, or spending time with your children, there's something for everyone to get involved with. Here's a guide to the best way to end your night in Val Thorens: Bowling, Music concerts, Cinema

The best spas in Val Thorens

While skiing holidays provide a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise and experience a few thrills and spills, they are also fantastic for those who want to get a little rest and relaxation. In fact, you could say they offer the perfect balance between action and serenity, and many of Europe's top resorts are well equipped to make sure that all visitors get both of these things in equal measure.

Indeed, many ski resorts in the Alps are as famous for their spas as they are for their slopes, so if you're looking for a great way to wind down and recharge your batteries after a day of downhill fun then a visit to one of these is just what you need. In fact, by spending a little time relaxing in a hot tub or being worked over by a masseuse, you'll be able to help your body recover from any fatigue it may be feeling following an intense skiing session, and are therefore likely to get much more enjoyment from your trip.

Advice for skiing off-piste this winter

Firstly, it's essential that you don't head off into the un-bashed areas of the mountain unless you are an extremely competent skier, as doing so can be very dangerous for those who are not up to the task.

If you feel as though you're ready to make the leap, however, then you're in for a real thrill, although it's vital to take all the necessary safety precautions and be sensible. For instance, you should never head off-piste without an experienced guide, as you'll need to be led by someone who knows the local terrain and can advise you on where it is and isn't safe to ski. Even if you think you're a good enough skier and navigator to handle the wilderness, you won't have the specific knowledge that local guides are equipped with. For example, only someone who has spent the entire season in the area will know how much snow there has been, and therefore which spots are most likely to be solid enough to ski on or where the biggest risks of avalanches might be.

How to stay in shape for skiing over the summer months

However, if you're one of those people who simply can't wait for the return of winter so that you can resume your love affair with the slopes, then you may want to spend the summer months getting in shape for the upcoming ski season, so that you're ready to go the moment the first snowflake falls.

Skiing is a sport which requires good aerobic and anaerobic fitness, so it's important to have a good all-round level of endurance and stamina. It also places a lot of strain on the muscles in your legs, so working on this area can help you maintain a good physique for skiing.

Spend Apotheose Days in Val Thorens

To mark the end of the winter season the French ski resort of Val Thorens will be holding its annual Apotheose Days event.

Held over four days from May 1st to 4th, the festival allows guests to enjoy the many activities and entertainment shows on offer and make the most of the last days of skiing.

The event is aimed at families, children, teens, friends, ski and mountain lovers, non-skiers and holidaymakers alike

There will be a number of free concerts on offer, as well as the chance to try out activities such as segways, bungee ejection, waterslides and yoga. Visitors can also try out the Big Airbag where they have to ski off the top of a slop right onto a giant airbag.
