Val d'Isère

Host to the Winter Olympics, World Championships and more top skiing competitions than any other European resort, Val d'Isère offers some of the most technically challenging pistes in the Alps.

Fortunately, an array of gentle slopes suit the less experienced skier, while the apres-ski scene is crowned by the now legendary Folie Douce and the popular new kid on the block Cocorico. Gastronomes can feast on the Michelin starred excellence of L'Atelier d'Edmond.

At a height of 1850m, Val d'Isère has one of the longest winter seasons in the Alps stretching from the end of November right through to the beginning of May. It also boasts a reassuringly reliable snow record. The diverse terrain of Val d'Isère combined with the neighbouring resort Tignes complete the L'Espace Killy which offers both beginners and experienced skiers over 300km of marked pistes along with endless off-piste skiing and one of the most advanced lift systems in the world.
