Spring has arrived in Val Thorens and the Three Valleys and after almost a week of snow and clouds the sun has come out and the forecast is that it's here to stay.
Enjoy the sunshine in one of Val Thorens's many outdoor restaurants like the Rond Pointe and La Folie Deuce.

Val Thorens race report from Cara the Skier
Cara Brown - Ski Racer | | published: 4th March 2014
It’s been a few weeks since I updated my blog because I took a week off to go to London. While I was in London I did two speeches to children at Thomas’s London Day Schools about skiing and chasing your dreams. It was great fun but by the end of the week I was ready to get back out to the mountains for the rest of the season. My season will finish up in March with the British and Scottish Championships in Meribel and Courchevel. Before then I still have a few more races, including the French Championships!

Jump on the bus to beat the queues by heading up high
Cara Brown - Ski Racer | | published: 3rd March 2014
The Three Valleys has set itself up nicely for great week of skiing! Last week it saw another big snowfall which covered up all the off piste tracks and gave the mountains a fresh blanket of fluffy snow. The weather has been a bit crazy for March! It seems like it can’t decide whether it’s winter or spring. There has been a lot of fog lying in in Valley but the tops of the mountains are clear and in the sun. The next few days should be bringing a lot more snow…

On how not to queue
Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 28th February 2014
The 3 Valleys are enjoying a super-snowy period; it dumped with snow on Wednesday night, snowed again last night and the forecast for the next five days is for snow, snow and more snow. After a slow start, this winter is getting better and better. The piles of snow in the resort are as just high as last year, itself a memorably good season.

Conditions don't get any better than this
Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 24th February 2014
“If you didn’t enjoying skiing today, you might as well hang up your skis for good,” opined my mate Ed over a pint last night. He has a point, because conditions simply don’t get any better than this. After a very snowy fortnight, the sun has finally returned. This weekend, we have been enjoying fabulous conditions across the 3 Valleys with soft snow, perfectly-groomed corduroy pistes, great powder off-piste and beautiful blue skies.

Cara Brown - Ski Racer | | published: 18th February 2014
It’s the February holidays! The snow gods have been very kind to us this week. In case you were worried about the fog and snow on Sunday, Monday morning definitely cleared up all weather issues! The sky was a perfect shade of blue, no clouds in the sky and the sun was shining. Sunday was the day to be skiing in Val Thorens and let’s hope the bad weather hasn’t followed anyone out from the UK!

Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 12th February 2014
There is some great snow in the Three Valleys at the moment. Although the snow was slow to come at the beginning of the winter we now have great coverage in Val Thorens and the pistes and off-piste are fantastic.

Fabulous snow, not much visibility
Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 10th February 2014
The 3 Valleys have been super-snowy over the past few weeks. After a fairly dry start to the season, the snow gods have recently decided to favour us with lots of snowfalls, big and small, to our great rejoicing. Conditions on piste are excellent – well, that is once the piste bashers have smoothed down each new snowfall.

Dumpety dumpety dump!
Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 7th February 2014
It is chucking it down with snow here in Val Thorens. Really dumping. Since this morning, fat flakes have been whirling non-stop. And it’s proper, heavy snow too; today when I cleared my car windows, by the time I’d gone all around the car, the first window were obscured again.

Race Report: Finishing first & more races to come.. it's been a great week for Cara!
Cara Brown - Ski Racer | | published: 5th February 2014
It’s the CIT World Championships in Val Thorens! I have raced in the Downhill and two Super Gs and the Giant Slalom and Slalom are still to come. The weather has not been favourable as Monday brought wind gusts up to 100kmph and although the wind has now died down a bit, snow is still falling. Hopefully the clouds will clear and the sun will come out for the rest of the week!

Why January is the best month of the year
Caroline Sayer | Val Thorens Reporter | published: 31st January 2014
Good grief, is it really the end of January already? It went by in a flash. If you are reading this in a rain-soaked UK, my mourning the end of the month may seem rather strange. I should explain that January is simply the best month of the year for season workers. As soon as the New Year holiday hoards have gone home, we get down to the serious business of enjoying skiing on empty pistes and making the most of everything that the resort has to offer for five or six glorious quiet weeks until the French half term holidays begin in February.
