Val d'Isère

The journey up the winding roads to the Espace Killy makes you realise that you are in the middle of what used to be nowhere! From a series of tunnels you’ll emerge wide-eyed, past the foreboding Grande Motte glacier and the jaw-dropping turquoise reservoir, held up by Atlas and watched over by the sentinel lady of the lake.

You’ll then pass some strangely incongruous apartments which mark the beginning of Val d’Isère – a deep valley, dominated by the Bellevarde and Solaise peaks. Way up in the wilderness as it is, some thought this resort would never work, but nowadays it’s known as a world famous ski area and party-town, by Brits, French and a good smattering of Scandinavians.

This world famous ski area, linked with Tignes, is named after Monsieur Killy, the winner of nearly every category of the 1968 Olympics, who learnt to ski here.

For those who have the stamina to ski all day and party all night, Val d’Isère is your Mecca. Choose from chic cocktail bars to rowdy sports pubs, catch a live band or have a few games of pool or table football. There is plenty to do for families in Val d'Isere too. Ice-skating, 
Aquasportif, Val Kids adventure park on the slopes, and the village perdu...

There’s a huge selection of restaurants for lunch or your chalet host's nights off, ranging from the usual pizzas and steak to all manner of fancy fare. There’s a wide range of shops too; and keep an eye open for the Patisserie whose window displays are award winning and extremely enticing.

Getting around is easy, with the free buses running regularly to and from each end of Val d’Isère, should you get waylaid on the way home from the slopes, or prefer not to waste time walking to the bar!

Piste Map - Val d'Isère

Val d’Isère is a dramatic resort with an excellent lift system. There are easy links to Tignes which make it a huge skiing area, renowned for challenging skiing and vast off-piste areas. This is not to say that novices are overlooked – they can warm up on the free ‘Village’ drag, then opt for the ‘Ski Tranquille’ area around Borsat.

More experienced skiers should try out ‘Criterium’ in La Daille, venturing to ‘Mattis’ in the trees during snowy weather. A trip over to Tignes is simple and quick and opens up all manner of options for skiing and sampling the vin chaud! Advanced skiers will enjoy the challenge of speeding down La Face (the Olympic downhill in 1992) at the end of the day. Those who have come to sample the famous powder have almost unlimited options - take a professional guide...
