Overview

This world-class resort has earned its reputation as one of France’s top ski destinations. Val d’Isère has something for skiers and boarders of all levels: Olympic and World Cup runs, a wealth of fantastic off-piste opportunities and a varied selection of pistes including greens high up on the mountain.

The base of Val d'Isère sits at 1850 metres and from there, the pistes climb up to 3488 metres, at the Pointe du Montet and the Pissaillas glacier, just below at 3450 metres. Skiers have a choice of 150 kilometres of pistes for all levels, serviced by 90 lifts.

Val d'Isere is part of the Espace Killy ski area, shared with Tignes. Some of the world's best skiers leave their tracks here and the resort has hosted Olympic and World Cup downhill competitions, as well as the Alpine Ski World Championships.

Best for: Intermediates and above

Val d'Isere really is a great all-round resort. Beginners and intermediates will find about 55% of its runs are either green or blue. The resort also has five beginner zones, two of which are large "ski tranquil" areas, criss-crossed with easy runs.

Of course, advanced skiers will find all the slope they need to push their skills to the limits, thanks to legendary runs like the incredibly steep La Face, used for the men's Olympic downhill. The most challenging run, La Forêt, cuts through the trees and is ideal for mogul fans.

Freestylers can also get their kicks in the famous Oakley ValPark, which like the rest of the resort, offers something for all levels. Val d'Isere is linked to neighbouring Tignes; the two resorts combine to form the giant Espace Killy ski area.

Highlights: High-altitude snowsure slopes, a long ski season from late November into first week of May, ski-in/ski-out accommodation, huge selection of varied pistes, fast modern lifts, terrain parks, one of the best lift-served off-piste ski areas in the world, easy access to Tignes.

Non-skiers: Outdoor ice rink, Aquasportif centre with pools, spas and climbing wall, and two Michelin star restaurants: L'Atelier Edmond (two stars) and La Table de l'Ours (one star).

Nearest airports: Chambery (145km/2hrs), Geneva (223km/2hrs50)

Nearest station: Bourg-St-Maurice (30km/40mins). Regular buses run from station
