Val Thorens in the 3 Valleys is France’s highest resort so good snow conditions are pretty much assured for anyone arriving in April or May, with the resort staying open until the 11th.

The park has had a massive turnaround in the last few years, going from icy death-trap to mellow playground, even having the good sense to rope of knuckles and landings from curious tourists looking for picnic spots.

Spring in Val T is amazing, with local staff relaxing after a long hard winter the place takes on a relaxed vibe that’s hard to beat.

Not Fun Fact: The Folie Douce in Val Thoren is well known as being a gateway to the first circle of hell; avoid at all costs.
