Val d’Isère is a world class resort, located just next to Tignes. The town is car free and made up of beautiful chalet style accommodation. The resort is very elegant and offers a range of services for everyone, from traditional family restaurants to more gastronomic establishments, pubs and shops-it is a very pleasant place to stay and is one of the British favs.
The resort is famous for organising trials of the ski world cup and for its summer skiing thanks to the glacier. You can access the pistes by lifts from every part of the resort, from “Le Fornet” to “La Daille”, and a free ski bus shuttles between the different areas.

The ski area of Val d’Isère offers some areas for beginners at the bottom of the slopes near the resort as well as one at the altitude accessible by the “Solaise” gondola.
However, the resort is really enjoyable if you are intermediate or expert. Some blue runs are actually quite challenging for beginners and may be just fine for intermediates. Plus there are really challenging red and black runs such as the “Face de Bellevarde” known for being skied by the best skiers in the world during the Alberville Olympics in 1992. Of course there are off-piste opportunities for confident skiers which require being equipped to go off-piste and hiring a guide is always better for a safer experience. Regarding terrain parks Val d’Isère is not last. Its park has rails and bumps to suit every level, three boarder crosses and is served by its own ski-lift which it shares with the “Stade de Slalom” just next to it.
Val d’Isère has hosted the Winter Golf Cup for five years now as well as the “Criterium de la Première Neige” which is a ski competition by the FIS. It also organises The International Adventure and Discovery Film Festival around April and in July the “High Trail Vanoise”, which is a race for all level lasting for 3 days.
So all in all Espace Killy is the place to be to make the most of your time in the French Alps!
