Val Thorens have recently spent a fair amount of money on creating a new bus station waiting room, it’s very posh! This they hoped would make the Saturday change over day work much easier, sadly it doesn’t. Saturdays are still bedlam. The Bus Station is located in the centre of the resort just next to the Sports Centre, speaking of which this is a popular place to wait for a bus as it is inside and warm. It is ideal as you can see down to the buses in the car park so you only need to go out there when the bus arrives.

There is also places to eat whilst you wait. The bus station is the only place in Val Thorens where state buses stop, only the free buses which just drive round and round the resort stop at the bus stops dotted around Val Thorens. These are quite frequent, they come around every 15mins. If you wish to take a bus down the valley to Les Menuires or Saint Martin de Belleville or to an airport you will need to book a ticket for the bus at least two days in advance, these are sold in the Bus Station waiting room office.
