Val d’Isère

About

Located high up in the vast Espace Killy area, Val d’isere sits close to the French/Italian border and is naturally linked to Tignes. Val d’isere is always a firm favourite with expert skiers who go here to ski the famous Olympic downhill run, La Face. It also caters for all standards of skier who are able to enjoy the mixture of blue, red and black runs, but don’t forget the tree runs and some very accessible and exhilarating off piste. There are also lots of excellent ski schools to help anyone feeling nervous or looking to hone their skills. The attractive town centre has a large variety of chic bars, boutiques and restaurants that will suit everyone.

Hot Tips

  • Start off apres-ski early on the terrace of Le Folie Douce and then head to the legendary Dick’s Tea Bar for afternoon tea or happy hour
  • Have a go at airboarding (a bit like tobogganing on a lilo),
  • Enjoy a true gastro experience at the michelin starred La Table de l’Ours or a sunny Sunday lunch at La Peau de Vache half way down the infamous ‘La Face’
  • Head to Saint Foy on the seasonairs day off, it quiet and you will have amazing powder!

What we love

Après-ski at La Folie Douce is one to not miss.

Loads of great activities for those who don’t ski including husky-sledding and ice driving

Indoor activities including a pool and climbing wall

Amazing off piste

Great selection of fantastic hotels and chalets

What needs improving

It’s a longer transfer than other resorts (although not that bad!)
