An independent guide to Val Thorens
Find all the Val Thorens ski shops here, with their location and contact details.
Zenith is a long-established shop in the centre of resort, focused on quality and service (not volume through big groups and tour operators). This is our recommended shop, because they are independent, and provide a friendly, helpful, knowledgeable service.
Zenith's boot-fitting service is probably the best in resort, because they take the time to find out your level and look at the shape of your feet, in order to suggest the most suitable models for you. They can also supply conformable insoles, and boot heaters.
There's a 20% discount on ski and snowboard hire booked through ValThorensGuide.
