A Guide to Christmas in Val Thorens


Where better to have a white Christmas than in the highest ski resort in Europe? Enjoy our top tips on how best to enjoy the festive season in Val Thorens:

Christmas is traditionally celebrated on the 24th of December in France. So expect the festivities to kick off early. On Christmas Eve, enjoy an ice sculpting demonstration and the opening of Father Christmas’ village, as a perfect afternoon treat for the kids. The evening is not complete without a torchlit descent down the slopes from the ESF instructors and a fireworks display, accompanied with hot chocolate and vin chaud. There is also a children’s torchlit descent so that the little ones can get involved too! You can also catch the Christmas market in Val Thorens in the lead up to Christmas for all your last-minute Christmas shopping needs. 

One of the best parts of Christmas Day is undeniably the Christmas Lunch. Chalet de la Marine is the perfect spot for a Christmas Day treat, awarded a michelin fork in 2013. Enjoy fine food and wine on their beautiful terrace overlooking the Belleville Valley. Or, enjoy a ski down to Les Menuires to enjoy Christmas Lunch at La Ferme de Reberty.  Why not consider having your Christmas dinner prepared and delivered to your doorstep?
