3 Vallees of France - Val Thorens is Sick!!

Spent 8 years at Snowbird in the 90's and have probably been to a good 50 ski resorts all over the world in the past 20 years. The 3-Valleys, Corcheval, more-so Meribel and especially Val Thorens... Rock. (All Linked together via Trams&Lifts)

just wrapping up 4 months at Val Thorens,, and I tell you... The Season and the powder we are still getting daily is just sick.

*shot from VT today.. you can sort of see how light the powder still is.. **dumping right now for another blue-bird powder day tomorrow.

Shot of terrain accessed by main Tram (Caron) - very fast lift to top & holds 120 people

**Actually I'm going to try and take another photo today and replace this one from January.. Much more filled in now

Better shot of Tram ( but from 2007 ).
May 7th 2007
White-Out on the 5th&6th . Woke on the 7th to Blue Skies and about a foot of settled powder.

5 people on 1st Tram; 12 on 2nd; 20 on 3rd.... just an epic morning with the whole mountain to ourselves....
