From Piste to Après-ski in Val Thorens
12th February 2016
Why go skiing just anywhere when you can have an all-inclusive experience, a completely hassle-free holiday where you only focus on the fun at all times in the French mountains.
Club Med Val Thorens Sensations is a chic, casual and modern resort nestled in the heart of Les 3 Vallées, the world’s largest ski area with 600km of interconnected trails. The architecture of Val Thorens Sensations was designed to showcase the breath-taking panoramas, with features such as large bay windows, skylights and terraces in common areas, superb views and balconies in most of the 384 guest rooms. Interior designer Sophie Jacqmin honors the magnificent landscapes around the ski resort.
Winter sports enthusiasts will love this ski-in/ ski-out resort, which offers lessons for all levels and top-notch equipment. Ski and snowboarding lessons, given in French and English in small groups of around 12 people, are available for all levels. Professional instructors who know the ski area perfectly will guide skiers down the slopes suitable for their level to help them learn in the best conditions. Ski and snowboarding lessons are included in the Club Med “all inclusive” offer for ages 12 and up. The Club Med package also includes a 3 Vallées ski pass that provides access to the entire ski area’s 600km of slopes. The ski store sells the latest equipment, thanks to a partnership with prestigious brands such as Rossignol, Volant, Lacroix, Dupraz and the snowboarding brand Apo. Those in search of new experiences can pick from an unrivalled selection of activities, including ski cross, ice diving, mountain biking on snow, zip-lining and more.
A holiday in the mountains is about more than just sports, the resort has its own CARITA Spa where you can relax and rejuvenate after an intense day on the slopes. The Spa has 10 multi-purpose treatment rooms as well as a hairdresser, a relaxation lounge and two Turkish baths. In addition you can attend any of the latest fitness classes that include Zumba, Body step, Pilates and Body Balance or if you prefer you can work out in the top of the range fitness gym.
A holiday in the mountains also means discovering local specialties. The resort offers a new dining concept; the Epicurious Gourmet Lounge that has been designed to meet the expectations of a modern clientele. Michelin-starred chef Edouard Loubet (two stars from the Michelin Guide) and Club Med Chef Thierry Van Rillaer have developed a unique menu for the new Epicurious Gourmet Lounge. Chef Edouard Loubet, who was born in Val Thorens and heavily influenced by the rich culinary tradition in the Savoy region, has gone back to his roots for this menu. From these two chefs’ collaboration comes a gourmet dinner menu that puts a new spin on local flavours, with a choice of two appetizers, three entrees and two desserts.
