Resort Description

Originally a small alpine farming village, Val d'Isere has continued to develop into a modern alpine resort whilst maintain its village feel and sense of tradition.
This French ski resort remains a firm favourite with both the British and French offering some of the best skiing and boarding in the world. There's over 300km of marked pisted runs and unlimited off piste skiing within the Espace Killy area making it an ideal location for skiers and boarders of all abilities to find something which satisfies all. In combination with its neighbouring resort Tignes, the 'Espace Killy' area is dedicated to all aspects of skiing.

Due to its location against the peaks of the Italian border, Val d'Isere's record of snowfall is exceptional. Whilst benefiting from the same Atlantic depressions as other French resorts, it often receives heavy falls of snow from the Mediterranean low pressures which dump their snow on the Italian Alps. The snow coverage tends to be one of the best in Europe and conditions normally facilitate good skiing right to the end of the season (which tends to be around the 08 May, give or take a day or two). There are 96 lifts spreading ten miles across Val d’Isère.
