Snow sure and world class skiing
At the top end of the Tarantaise Valley at a height of 1850m, Val d’Isère has some of the best snow cover in the Alps. Seasoned skiers return here year after year, and for good reason. Linked to Tignes to create a ski area of 300km of pistes, there are runs for every type and level of skier. Lifts are fast and queues are rare, with the highest reaching 3.456m on La Grande Motte glacier. La Face has legendary status since its inception during the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics and is a challenge most can’t resist. The Val d’Isère dining scene continues to grow, and you’d need much more than a week to get through the choice of high-end restaurants both on and off the mountain. And of course, the resort is still famous for its nightlife.
