Few resorts can rival Val Thorens for its reliably good snow-cover.

 

Not only is it the highest ski resort in Europe, but its slopes also reach 3200m and include two small glaciers. Add to that plenty of shady north-facing terrain and comprehensive snow-making facilities and it is easy to see why it is one of the safest bets in the Alps.
