Val d’Isère is one of the world’s best-known ski destinations. In these uncertain winters of climate change, it offers guaranteed snow conditions from the last week of November right up until when the lifts close on the first day of May. Enjoy the ambience of an ancient and authentic village in a truly spectacular mountain setting in the Savoie-Mont-Blanc region.
Le Snow Factory is the largest snowmaking facility in Europe and it’s just got bigger. A total of 900 cannons now cover a mighty 40% of the entire ski area.
Thanks to its challenging slopes and guaranteed snow conditions Val d’Isère is one of the homes of ski racing. Last December the resort had the best snow cover in the world. The FIS moved the World Cup competitions from Colorado and racers spent three weeks here, competing in superb conditions. This December it’s the setting for the 62nd Critérium de la Première Neige, organised by the Club des Sports.
It’s All About Enjoying yourself
Five ‘play areas’ on the slopes of Val d’Isère are open to all: the snowpark, tubing on the Savonette piste, the Sunny Ride beginner slope on Solaise, and two ski/boardercross courses.
