Winter Playground In France

The Resort

Val D’Isère is a long thin resort which combined with Tignes forms part of the vast Espace Killy, ranked amongst the top 5 luxury ski holidays in Europe.

The central area is made up of Val Village, where everyone gathers at night for very lively après-ski, and the satellite mini-resorts of La Daille and Le Fornet are all linked by a free bus service. La Daille, the first village you will encounter upon leaving the last tunnel is close to some great slopes whilst Le Fornet sits at the far end of the Isere valley.

Considered by many to be a premier ski resort Val D’Isère offers outstanding skiing from late November to early May and is the perfect choice for intermediates and advanced skiers. Its ideal ski conditions, guaranteed snow and lively atmosphere off the slopes make it a perfect draw for all. Renowned for its après ski activities concentrated around Rue Principale, Val D’Isère entertainment ranges from lively bars to exquisite tea rooms. With neighboring Tignes, this region is one of Europe’s key winter playgrounds.

Val D’Isère is also a great family resort with plenty of local nurseries and ski schools catering for children of all ages. Other activities include dog sledding, snowmobiling, and paragliding.

On the Snow in France

The combined area is collectively known as Espace Killy. There are 90 ski lifts, 300km runs, and a modern hands-free lift pass system. Eight entry points provide access to the mountain including the high-speed gondola from the village center and the underground funicular from La Daille. From here a network of pistes and lifts lead towards Tignes on one side and on the other Rocher du Charvet. The OK downhill course, also from the top of Bellevarde is a moderately demanding but enjoyable route down to La Daille.

Due to the quality of the snow allowing for outstanding powder skiing Val D’Isère is the home of off-piste skiing and free ride. Those prepared for some serious off-piste skiing will find themselves spoilt for choice by the variety of pistes. Hire the experience of a local guide and try the Face du Charvet, a steep powder classic accessed from the Grand Pré chair.

The lift system at Val D’Isère is both fast and efficient, a good choice for borders – plus there are very few drag-lifts. There’s is also a terrain park just above La Daille gondola, offering excellent facilities for both park beginners and experts. A Val D’Isère luxury ski holiday in France is a popular destination for all tastes.
