Selling Fast, Secure Your Spot!



Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe – nestling at an altitude of 2,300 metres at the top of Les 3 Vallées (the world’s largest ski area). Due to its unique position, the snow is always great and you can ski right through into early May. It’s the first resort to open and the last to close! The recent lack of snow in other resorts was not a problem for Val Thorens making it the best choice for ABODE on the snow.

Val Thorens offers an incredible skiing experience with excellent snow conditions that are sure to thrill any skier. The resort boasts an extensive network of perfectly groomed runs, world-class facilities, and breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains, making it an ideal destination for any winter sports enthusiast. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced skier, Val Thorens has something to offer everyone, with its perfectly maintained pistes and abundance of off-piste terrain.

The festival starts on the evening of the 4th of January.
