Welcome to Val d'Isere Ski Resort

Famed as much for its quality slopes and reliable snow as for its legendary party scene, Val d’Isère is not surprisingly one of our most popular resorts. It’s home to an incredible 300km of pistes, with most slopes above 2,300m. Although it’s well known for its challenging runs and off-piste – this is definitely a ski hard, party hard kind of place – don’t let that put you off. If you're not the most confident there’s a wide range of greens and blues scattered about the resort for stress-free descents and a really efficient lift system for getting you up, and if necessary, back down again. Boarders will love the playground, which has 40 kickers and six lines from beginner to expert.

Mid-January is popular with Brits looking for a bargain. February high season it’s popular with the French. March and April can be superb, as longer days mean spring skiing and après on the slopes.
