Val D Isere photo gallery

Home to many Olympic champions including legendary gold medalist Jean-Claude Killy, Val d'Isère offers the whole package: a real town surrounded by the kind of tall jagged peaks, endless vertical and superior terrain that can only be found in the French Savoie Alps. The ski area, which is the largest in France, is linked with Tignes, creating “L’Espace Killy,” with 186 miles of marked runs for every level of skier, as well as ample off-piste and untracked powder for the expert.

On a Val d’Isere ski vacation you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that "the authentic skiers' village,” manages incredible harmony between modern tourism (27,000 beds to boot) and local chalet-style architecture. This posh little village, which sits at more than 6,000 feet, has been host to inhabitants since before the 11th century, and became a fully-operational ski resort after World War II. As host to some events of the '92 Winter Games, more polish was added to an already magnificent gem, and it now enjoys a reputation as one of France’s top-shelf resorts.

Val d’Isere Ski Resort

The Val d’Isere skiing is best suited for advanced intermediate and expert skiers, as the terrain is namely steep and well above treeline. Skiers and boarders with a penchant for leg burning runs will be right at home on a Val d’Isere ski vacation. Val d’Isere also offers several world-class off-piste descents, so be sure to hire a guide for ultimate enjoyment and safety. Val d’Isere does offer guests plenty of beginner and intermediate options at the Soliase ski area, but sister resort Tignes is best reserved for beginners, families and intermediates.

Freestyle skiers and snowboarders will enjoy dropping into the famed Oakley ValPark, which features rails, boxes and jumps for everyone from beginner to pro.

I just got back from a fantastic trip through some of the French ski resorts, and Val d'isere is a true stand out!  The skiing is massive and connects with Tignes to create a uniquely French Alps experience.  There are slopes that cater to all levels of experience, as well as some pedestrian friendly lifts that allow the non skier to explore the mountains and meet up for some exceptional on mountain dining. 

The village is somewhat relatable to Vail in that it has a vibrant central shopping and dining scene (don't miss the Monday market), with just a short walk to everything from most hotels.  

A variety of options await you, and I'll be happy to help you put it all together!
