Val Thorens Car Parking
Val Thorens is a car FREE resort and do not allow anyone to park their cars on the road, instead you will need to park in one of the car parks in the resort. You are only allowed to park your car on the street on weekends and even then they are not too happy about it.
There are three main car parks in Val Thorens and they are called P0, P1 and P2 – there are more further down the hill you drive, which are also cheaper! Here is our run down of the car parks in Val Thorens, worth a read if you have a high car as some are too low for tall cars.
SkiGB’s mountain car is a Mitsubishi Shogun which is a large 4×4 – similar height to a Range Rover and Mercedes ML. Bare in mind if you intend on using a top box for your car, as that also adds to the height of the car, some people take the top box off when they get to Val Thorens and then store it inside the car, which isn’t always ideal.
There isn’t any room to store the box in your car park bay, the car park spaces are just big enough for the car.
We have parked our car in all the car parks – which we could fit in – to test ease of use, we rate them with our ‘Shogun Rate’.
