Things to do - general

Val d’Isere

One of Europe’s most famous ski resorts, the historic village Val d’Isere was built around stone farmhouses and has an 11th century church and a bell tower built in the 1600s. Linked to Tignes to create the 300-kilometre Espace Killy ski area, it has hosted the Winter Olympics Games and World Alpine Ski Championships. It has a lively après ski scene and Michelin-star restaurants, with a free shuttle bus to get around.

Season

November 24, 2018 – May 1, 2019

Ski area

Located in a steep valley, Val d’Isere is divided into three sections. The central ski area Le Solaise welcomed a new 10-person gondola with heated seats and Wi-Fi last year. Bellevarde faces three directions in a triangular shape bowl, while Le Fornet is the quietest part of the resort with long and often empty runs and great opportunities for off-piste skiing. Altogether Espace Killy has 90 lifts, with 20 green runs, 67 blue, 41 red and 26 blacks. Val d’Isere also has a terrain park catering for all levels.

Accommodation

There’s a wide range of high quality apartments, hotels and chalets to choose from.

Off-piste

Val d’Isere has an outdoor ice skating rink and offers activities including ice driving, paragliding, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing and ice climbing, with a strong calendar of festivals and concerts. There’s around 60 restaurants, including Michelin-star nosheries L’ Atelier d’ Edmond and La Table de l’Ours. For après head to the iconic Dick’s Tea Bar, La Bananas or Cocorico for live music.
