An Overview Of The Fantastic Ski Resort Of Val d’Isere

 
The French ski resort of Val d’Isere is one of the finest in the Alps. It is popular with visitors from all over the world who love its charm, ski area, vibrant nightlife, and high-end accommodation.
 
You can expect a picturesque, attractive mountain village with fantastic restaurants and hotels. The old part of town features an 11th-century baroque church and a collection of traditional wood and stone buildings, adding to Val d’Isere’s charm.

Val d’Isere’s Ski Area

Val d’Isere has a large ski area featuring 150km of pistes. However, its slopes and lifts connect with the neighbouring resort of Tignes, extending the opportunity to explore even more.
Unlike some French ski resorts, Val d’Isere has a great network of mainly modern ski lifts that provide fast access to the slopes. The wide selection of slopes means there’s something for everyone, regardless of your skill level and style. However, it’s worth noting that some of the slopes that bring you back to the village are slightly more challenging than their difficulty ratings suggest. However, nervous and less experienced skiers can descend on the ski lifts to make life easier.

More advanced skiers and snowboarders can challenge themselves on the selection of black runs, including the infamous Face de Belvarde. You can also benefit from an abundance of lift-accessible off-piste terrain, but it’s best to hire a guide for local knowledge and safety.

A Snow-Sure Ski Resort

A huge bonus for skiers and snowboarders visiting Val d’Isere is its higher-than-average snowfall. Part of this is because Val d’Isere sits at 1850 meters, creating colder temperatures and increasing the likelihood of precipitation falling as snow and being preserved. On top of this, the resort has an innovative underground snow factory, allowing for regular top-ups when needed, extending the season.
