Val-d'Isère Ski Resort


Val-d'Isère Ski Resort

As one of the most well-loved ski resorts in the world, Val d’Isere promises to offer you an unforgettable ski break. Standing at an impressive 1850m at the end of the Tarentaise Valley, high-altitude skiing is always guaranteed when staying in this part of the French Alps. Val d’Isere is also linked to Tignes to form the popular Espace Killy ski area.

This resort has been delighting skiers and snowboarders since as far back as the 1930s. Val d’Isere was developed and made more attractive during the run up to the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics and is now a modern and lively ski holiday destination.

The Solaise gondola has recently replaced the Solaise Express and is the newest addition to this resort, boasting heated seats and Wi-Fi. It can carry up to 10 passengers at a time and 3,600 passengers per hour, meaning you’ll never have to wait long for a 7-minute ride up to 2550m. At the top of the gondola, you can also find beginner pistes and secluded areas for children and adults.

With 150 runs of all levels, 300km of pistes and around 90 lifts, it’s no wonder Val d’Isere is such a popular choice for beginners and intermediates from across the globe. This resort really is dedicated to all aspects of skiing and snowboarding more than anywhere else in the whole of Europe.

Val d’Isere Winter Activities

Val d’Isere offers plenty of snow action and brilliant access to the piste from every part of the resort. When it comes to the ski and snowboard schools in the area, they all have excellent reputations and are among some of the best you can find on the planet. If you’re an advanced-level or intermediate skier, you will instantly fall in love with the steep runs and off-piste opportunities.

As well as being an exciting spot for skiing and boarding, Val d’Isere has a huge variety of off-slope activities including an outdoor ice rink, ice circuit driving and scenic walks to name a few. There’s also the Aqua Leisure Complex with 5000sqm of sports and wellness facilities including a gym, steam room, saunas, swimming pools and climbing walls. If you prefer, you can catch a movie at the cinema or spend some time unwinding in one of the many luxury spas.

With one of the biggest shopping areas in the Alps, Val d’Isere is the place to find not only ski and boarding attire but also designer shoes, handbags and clothes, so you’re sure to come across something that catches your eye.

When you fancy a bite to eat, you can find over 60 restaurants offering a variety of cuisine, ranging from snack food outlets to Michelin-starred eateries.
