Val d’Isere

Part of the Espace Killy ski region, Val d’Isere is a popular resort for British skiers. The vast ski area offers terrain for all abilities, with over 300km of pistes and the snow coverage through the years has been excellent. There are also two nursery areas just off from the centre of town, making this a great destination for the family. Not for the faint hearted, the confident intermediate/advanced skier can take on the infamous ‘Le Face’ run, which used to be the Olympic downhill run – you will truly feel the legs burn!

With plenty of fantastic catered chalet and hotel options, the resort has a great deal to offer in terms of accommodation choice.

Val d’Isere is known for its buzzing après ski scene with plenty of bars to choose from. The Folie Douce is a must-visit, situated on the slope above La Daille. Here you can enjoy the sounds of the saxophone being played by a man fully clad in fur on the roof of the building-an experience not to be missed! For the full experience, how about starting at the Fruitiere restaurant for lunch, which is part of the same building. Later in the evening there are a couple of popular clubs in Val d’Isere for those who want to keep the party going!
