Val Thorens is closed for the season, with effect from midnight on Saturday 14th March 2020. The closure of the resort is as a result of new measures to combat the Coronavirus imposed by the national government.

The ski lifts won't open, and visitors to the resort must leave as soon as possible. Seasonal workers for whom Val Thorens isn't home should also leave.

Bars, restaurants and non-essential businesses must also close. Food shops, banks and public transport remain open.
