So what's it like?
A premier ski resort with lively après ski
Considered by many to be the world's premier ski resort, Val d'Isère is hard to fault, offering some of France’s best skiing together with exciting après ski. The resort links to Tignes and forms the ‘Espace Killy’, one of the most varied ski areas in Europe making it a true skier’s paradise. Off the slopes the nightlife is hard to beat with lively bars and the famous 'Dick's Tea Bar'.
Don't get the idea that Val d'Isère is for experts only! Far from it - there are several good nursery slopes and a number of lifts which are absolutely free for skiing debutants.
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.
