Like its sister ski resort Tignes, Val d’Isere is a high snow sure ski resort, that everyone who skis or snowboards should visit at least twice. It’s our most popular ski resort and one that the staff at Skiline.co.uk visit most winters. We love the skiing, we love the village and we love après ski at the Follie Douce at the end of the day on a sunny spring skiing day.
Val d’Isere is popular for a few simple reasons, its high, very high at 1850m, the ski range is between 1550m and 3455m to so most of skiing is above the village. The ski runs are steeper than you might expect, especially if you are used to Italian ski run grades. The reds are proper reds that even advanced skiers really enjoy, the blacks are challenging as they should be. Val d’Isere lifts are fast and shift skiers up the mountain quickly, they also provide easy and quick access to the off piste skiing.
Val d’Isere is where we have the most ski chalets over 150 at last count, so if you are looking for ski chalet holiday we have more choice than any other web site we know. We also offer a good selection of hotels, some which in Val d’Isere are very good. If you prefer a self-catered apartment, there are a few popular residences where apartments are available from simple studio apartments for 2, to larger 2 or 3 bedroom apartments which offer a bit more space and comfort.
