Val d’Isère is renowned worldwide for its famous black slopes such as La Face and extensive off-piste terrain, making it the first-choice resort for expert skiers. Intermediates are never disappointed with the variety of wide blues and more demanding red runs. There is also a Snow Park with varying levels of difficulty to try out your skills. The resort is also a fantastic choice for beginners with two nursery slopes to learn safely and a second beginner’s area in altitude, so you won’t miss out on the unforgettable views of the Alps. The slopes in Tignes are easily accessible from Val d’Isère for an extra 150km of premium slopes.
Val d’Isère offers much more than its exceptional ski terrain. There is a large variety of winter activities to try such as ice skating, paragliding, husky sledding and snowshoeing. The wellness centre boasts two pools, saunas, steam rooms and hot tubs, making it the perfect spot to relax after a day on the slopes. If you’re looking for an experience you’ll never forget, Val d’Isère also offers helicopter flights with unbeatable views of the snow-topped mountains.
Bars & Restaurants
Val d’Isère is home to a vibrant après ski scene with lively clubs, pubs and bars including the legendary La Folie Douce with cabaret shows, live music and table dancing all part of the experience.
