Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

where to get a photo for Val Thorens lift pass

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Heading to VT at easter and my 4 year old is getting the free under 5's lift pass.

However it says on the website (page 26 under "warning") http://www.valthorens.com/pdf/page-setam/ValThorens-Forfaits-Tarifs-2017-2018-En.pdf that a photo is COMPULSORY

Does anyone know if they have photo booths at the lift office or do i need to get my 4 year old to a photo booth here in the UK before we go?

I assume the rest of us won't need a photo.

Surely they take the photo?

Ski pass photos are digital and taken at the lift ticket purchase kassa next to the lifts - certainly in Austria. France must be the same - surely. Ange snowHead

@Stinkpickle, I am pretty sure it is the lift pass office that takes the pic. Certainly that was what I remember happening for ours. In ADH, La Plagne though - not Val T but sure they all operate the same.

And welcome to SH's, that is some username you've chosen. Story behind it?

Thank you - I haven't been skiing in 15 years and back then I definitely remember you had to take passport photos with you - and there was never a passport photo booth in the resort that we could find! So it was always on the pre-skiing check list.

Makes sense that it is now all digital and they take them at the lift office

Was in Les Menuires at the beginning of February, and having not been as prepared as you and actually read the website, I sent a photo from facebook to the family friend that had offered to collect all of the lifts for the little ones, worked out ok.

Possibly the same in VT given it's just down the valley.

Adults didn't require a photo.

@Stinkpickle, ah, modern times now. The lift ticket stays securely in your left pocket, any pocket from trousers to chest, no need to remove. Many valley lift barriers have cameras in the turnstile which record your pic, then the liftties have a monitor in their hut. This is to stop pass sharing, and it works, they have a good eye! Photos are taken for passes over 8 days when purchased. This is how it works in Austria where I am, I expect is the same in France. Most lift tickets are run by Skidata. Also, you can enter your lift ticket number on skiline.cc and see the lifts you have used and how much you have or haven't skied! Plus, there are some fun speed tracks etc which record videos. I don't know if Vt has this, it's fun though. My first ski holiday 17 years ago was a passport photo stuck on paper in a holder on an armband! Ange.

Our ski pass office takes a photo with a webcam or you can order online and upload a photo. Monitored and checked occasionally with an Ipad, or on a screen in the hut. They even spotted that my hair was shorter, and made me take my helmet off to check my ID.
