The ski resort of Val Thorens, France, was chosen as the”European Greatest Ski Resort” for its 2020-2021 year for the fifth season, which makes it the most-awarded destination from the European Greatest Destinations company. This position is based upon the votes of over 640,000 travelers out of 173 countries and contemplating both Covid-19 sanitary measures and travel limitations.
European Greatest Destinations (EBD) is a part of the European Commission’s EDEN Network (“European Islands of Excellence”), working to promote sustainable tourism in the continent which counts as the world’s top ski-holiday destination. Like Val Thorens, the maximum ski resort in Europe and given EBD’s”sterile United Label,” the ski hotels listed below are dedicated to welcoming travelers at a friendly and secure environment.
The sterile United Label conveys a commitment to honor the recommendations and guidelines of sanitary protocols along with other recommended steps that will help control the coronavirus. On account of how health rules inflict social distancing — that suggests fewer areas available for lodging and fewer individuals in ski lift cottages — EBD urges that travellers reserve lodging, ski passes and flights well beforehand.
