About Val Thorens Ski Pass Prices

There are several different types of lift pass you can buy for your ski holiday. Individuals can buy a Val Thorens valley pass or a full 3 Valleys pass, and there are special rate passes available for families, groups, beginners and pedestrians.

Popular ski passes
There are 3 main types of 'Val Thorens Ski Area' passes to choose from - the 3 Valleys Pass (full area), the Belleville Valley Pass (local area), and the Val Thorens / Orelle Pass (resort area). The 3 Valleys Pass is more expensive and more comprehensive, covering the whole linked resorts of Courchevel and Meribel with around 600km of pistes, as well as the "4th Valley" of Orelle. The Belleville Valley Pass incorporates around 300km of pistes, including Les Menuires. And the Val Thorens / Orelle Pass offers 150 kilometres of pistes around Val Thorens and Orelle. Most skiers buy the six day 3 Valleys pass, as this allows you to explore many more pistes, mountain restaurants & bars and the neighbouring resorts without having to worry if you've 'crossed a border'!
