VAL D'ISERE - Information

Resort Information  VAL D'ISERE

Val d’Isère is a resort with a big reputation and deservedly so! World famous for superb skiing and après-ski, the village has managed to retain its old world charm and traditional alpine village feel, amongst the new and stylish buildings that have been added to cater for skiers. It boasts breathtaking vertical drops, wide bowls, free beginners’ lifts on the nursery slopes and lifts suitable for non-skiers in order to go up to mountain cafes. The free shuttle bus service links the built up La Daille area with Val Village centre and also runs out to chalet-style Le Fornet. The children’s village at Rond Point des Pistes takes children from 3yrs to 13yrs. The attractions in Val d’Isère for non-skiers and cross-country skiers are limited. However, at night the town really comes alive.Val d’Isère sits in a gigantic ski area, the Espace Killy – named after local Olympic gold medal hero Jean-Claude. Any competent skiers will be able to ski between Val d’Isère and Tignes within a day, aided by the superb lift system. Val’s slopes are split into three defined areas; on one side of the valley there’s the Bellevarde and on the other, Solaise and Col de l’Iseran. All three have widely varying pistes, and access to some legendary off-piste stuff. Fast quads and cable-cars zoom up the mountain from the village. Better still, Val d’Isère has a fabulous snow record. Most skiing is at 2,300m and above, and if all else fails there is always the Pissailas Glacier at 3,300m.
