Val d'Isere, in the Savoie area of France, is a colourful winter sports haven that began as a farm community in the years BC. It is the better-known part of Espace Killy. The huge skiing domain, shares itself with purpose-built Tignes. The area is named for Olympic hero Jean-Claude Killy, who grew up in Val d'Isere. The charming village finds its 1,800 residents outnumbered 15 to one by guests in winter. Espace Killy has 300 kilometres of maintained slopes cut through vast snowfields that stretch to the horizon. Ninety-nine lifts can move more than 135,000 skiers an hour, uphill. Much of the terrain is ideal for cruisers, but there are many opportunities for snowboarders and powder skiers to show their stuff. A lot of skiers accept the challenge of the Bellevarde downhill, designed for the 1992 Olympics. Some parts of the 915 metre drop have a 63 percent angle and running it earns bragging rights in the lively Val d'Isere apres-ski scene.

Resorts close to Val d'Isere include: Tignes (4 km), Bonneval sur Arc (12 km), Bessans Val D'Arc (15 km), Sainte Foy (16 km), Villaroger (16 km),

Visitor Reviews of Val d'Isere


graeme from Australia writes:

I have skied at over 100 resorts around the world over the last 30 years and must have spent over a year in total at Val. There are a lot of great places to ski but nothing beats Val d'Isere for the quality of skiing unless you have a helicopter. BC has some wonderful areas but please don't include Whistler amongst them unless you enjoy crowded lifts, a village that has had a soul bypass and you like skiing the heaviest snow outside of Australia.
