Val d’Isere Ski Resort Guide

Val d’Isere has the enviable position of being known worldwide as one of the most iconic resorts on the planet. A lively main town centre area is where most of the action happens. While the two smaller villages of La Daille and Le Fornet at either end complete the resort.

A huge number of British and Scandinavian holidaymakers swell Val d’Isere’s population during the winter months. This provides the party atmosphere which the resort is renowned for. Although labelled as expensive and elitist by some, there are plenty of more affordable and relaxing amenities to be found. It’s not all Moet champagne and caviar, but it certainly can be if you want it.

 

Skiing in Val d’Isere

Val d’Isere’s first ski lift was built way back in the 1930s. The resort’s popularity was secured following local resident Jean-Claude Killy’s success in the 1968 Grenoble Olympics. Although originally from Alsace, locals were so pleased with his performance that they named the large Espace Killy ski area after him.

This enormous skiable area shared with Tignes features 300km of pistes ensuring every level of skier is catered for. The majority of the area sits above 2000m meaning the terrain is as reliable as you get for snowfall. Val d’Isere also has a longer winter season than many of the lower resorts across Europe.

Despite the Espace Killy being a huge area, a quick and efficient lift system means very few queues on the slopes. Additionally there are very few connecting lifts needed to get around. The lift-accessed areas of off-piste skiing are known as some of the best in Europe as well. This means you can get your fix of fresh powder without ever trekking too far away from the pistes.

number 1 choice for booking transfers

Can’t recommend this booking site enough, great communication from start to finish. Booked 2 transfers with them, 1 st went without a hitch, Price quoted on line, booked and confirmed accepted in less than a day. On the second booking the courier was unfortunately unable to provide the transfer. That’s where the true high Level of Service really kicked in, my funds were already paid in Escrow, and Dave at Snowcopare was able to provide a list of alternate couriers that could honor the Transfer request for the amount id paid. In fact he even managed to get us an upgrade to a carrier with a newer larger fleet of vehicles. I’ll be back for sure, this should be your number one stop for booking your ski Transfers. Very competitively priced and all round outstanding Service.

Fast, competitive quotes and a simple booking system.

Search function very simple, response times very good and prices competitive. The booking process was very easy and I received confirmation with company contact details. I hope the actual transfer is as simple and smooth as the booking process.
