The Zénith is in the heart of the Val Thorens resort. The main after ski activities (sled dogs, snowmobile hikes, torchlight descent, mulled wine, fireworks, bowling ...) take place on Place Caron.
Also perfect for children's sledding, nice little slope in front of the zenith and can be supervised from the apartment terace
Easy return from ski lessons via the conveyor belt or free skiing via the south-facing slope which leads direct to Place Caron.
Restaurants or bar with terrace, fast food, crepes, waffles at the foot of the building.
For shops, the Caron gallery is very close and also houses the altitude sports center (swimming pool, spa, fun park, ping pong, squash) with the possibility of a weekly package for the most assiduous.
Another gallery a little higher in the station houses the Pharmacy and various stores such as Caron.
For the lift passes, there are discounts for families, not huge but always good to take, take holiday vouchers. If you return to the apartment for lunch, the cheaper ValTho Orelle package is sufficient. If you are going for a day and an adventure, 3 Vallées ski pass. Personally, I take the first and one or 2 days of extension that can be purchased in the morning depending on the weather and the amount of snow at the bottom of the Méribel slopes.
For groceries, crossroads mountain supermarket 200 m from the Zénith, mountain-style grocery stores and our favorite the Cooperative next to the church for Beaufort and local specialties. Often the queue but it is justified!
Val Thorens has once again been voted best resort in the world for the sixth consecutive year, so you should be in for a treat!
