· ski-in, ski-out · 1 minute's walk to the Peclet gondola · 4 minutes' walk to the resort centre · less than a minute's walk to the ski school meeting point and nursery slopes
The Hotel Academie des Neiges has the perfect position in Val Thorens, with front-row seats of the piste.
Each morning, you can pop on your gear and head straight out onto the snow. The ski school meeting point is just a few seconds’ slide past the covered magic carpet, while a range of chairlifts and cable cars – taking you high up into the Three Valleys ski area – are a quick schuss away. And at the end of the day, all the runs back into Val Thorens end up nearby too, so you don’t have to worry about trudging far back to the hotel ski room.
When you’re not skiing, the resort’s bars, restaurants and activities aren’t far either. For example, the public Centre Sportif de Val Thorens – with indoor pool, spa and fitness centre – is only a couple minutes’ walk away. If you’d rather just stay put, you can have a few drinks on the hotel's outdoor terrace, soaking up the last few hours of the day’s sun.
The bedrooms themselves sleep from two to four people, meaning couples, friends and families can all secure their piste-side spot.
