A premier ski resort with lively après ski
Lively Val d'Isère and neighbouring La Daille are part of the excellent high altitude ski area of The Espace Killy. Val d'Isère shares 300km of linked skiing with nearby Tignes boasting a huge variety of terrain in this famous ski area. Traditionally this snow sure resort kicks off the whole European season in early December with the first World Cup Downhill - the 'Première Neige'. At night Val d'Isère comes alive, start in one of the many restaurants before hitting the bars and clubs which are open until the early hours.
With its continued popularity amongst British skiers, you’ll find that English is widely spoken in this very social Alpine resort. Beginners will appreciate the modern ski lift system, with easy-to-use chair lifts and very few drag lifts to contend with. The highly recommended ski school is voted in the top five French ski schools every year by Crystal customers. Complete beginners will get started at the base area close to resort, then quickly progress to exploring the heart of the Espace Killy ski area confidently on a wide selection of easy green runs. It is hard not to take inspiration from watching top athletes training and competing in resort events during the season, not to mention the infamous Men’s downhill Olympic slope, the ultimate goal for motivation.
A true intermediates' paradise, Val d'Isère is big-time skiing country. From the gentle cruising blue and red runs of the Bellevarde and La Daille sectors to the Le Fornet glacier and the massive ski domain of Tignes and La Grande Motte, there is endless choice at every level.
Val d'Isère must be included in every list of the best skiing in Europe for its giant moguls, steep black runs, couloirs and not least for its sensational off-piste. Try the Olympic Men's Downhill run, the waist-high Solaise bumps just above the village or the powder bowls of the Tour de Charvet.
