It’s a true skier’s paradise that offers something for every ability level, from absolute beginner up to advanced skiers.

You can make the most of plenty of dining options in Val d'Isère. Choose between traditional Savoyard restaurants, fancy bistros or the more comfortable (and affordable) restaurants and pubs serving all types of everyday food from all over the world. Accommodation in Val d'Isère - as with eating out and partying - is fairly pricey, but you are paying to be in one of the world’s most famous ski resorts.
Although there are cruisey blues and beginner areas, the skiing is most suited to advanced skiers, who will enjoy the many challenging pistes and the famous off-piste opportunities. The Val d'Isère calendar is packed full of all sorts of events and festivals happening at the foot of the slopes, mainly including fireworks and competitions. Val d'Isère is a destination that really does have it all – amenities, world-class skiing and an enviable nightlife.
Worth a ride up the mountain is the state-of-the-art Solaise gondola. It has 91 cabins each with a 10-person capacity, heated seats and WiFi - so no more bottlenecks during peak season. The ride up takes just 7 minutes, making it one of the fastest gondolas in the world. And at the top? The American-style Day Lodge, with a bar, picnic area, kids' corner, and two sun terraces, to make the most of those gorgeous views. There's also a great beginner's area up there, where newbies can learn the basics at high altitude.
New for Winter 18/19 is the brand new ten-seat Poma gondola that takes skiers from La Daille up to La Folie Douce. The Téléski Des 3000 lift on Solaise has also been renovated taking advanced skiers up to Leissières ridge. Good news for families is the introduction of Valkids, a play area at the bottom of the Sunny Ride piste on Solaise, kids can 'drive' a cable car and learn about snow-making, and it'll keep them entertained for a good couple of hours.
