Val d'Isère Resort Info
Val d'isère skiing
Val d'isère is justifiably ranked up there with the best resorts in the world. Lift linked with Tignes with which Val d'isère makes up L'Espace Killy, there are 300km of varied pistes to please everyone from beginners to pros. Expert skiers and snowboarders are particularly spoilt for choice in Val d'isère with the 1992 Olympic course, the 'Face', plenty of off-piste (remember to take a guide) and a world class snow park.
Val d'isère ski resort
Val d'isère has not only world class skiing but also boasts some world class après ski. The Folie Douce at the top of la Daille gondola is probably the most famous of Val d'isère's après haunts but is far from the only one. Restaurants on and off the mountain are pricey but good, which added to a good range of accommodation and lot's to do for the non-skiers makes it easy to see Val d'isère's attraction.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 26-Feb-2017)
Thursday 23rd of February was yet another sunny day in France. The general story is of hard packed slopes up high and where the most traffic is but soft, spring like conditions on resort runs. Overall, conditions are very variable on piste. Off piste skiing is limited at the moment due to the warm temperatures and a lack of new snow but looking at the weather forecast, this could all be set to change.
Some of the best conditions in France can be found in Les Arcs (48/152cm). Slopes, especially at the top, are well groomed and grippy. They can be hard in places, especially with the amount of holiday traffic, but remain very good overall. Conditions were also good in Montgenevre (150/260cm) where slopes were wel-groomed. They were packed and grippy in the morning but softened up throughout the day.
The snow line has been visibly receding in the Chamonix (20/200cm) area recently. Strong sunshine today means that slopes lower day are softening up fast. Up high, however, slopes can be hard packed but are still ultimately very enjoyable.
There were early spring conditions in Morzine (30/50cm) and the rest of the Portes du Soleil today. When the slopes begin to soften up, head to Avoriaz (80/110cm) for the best snow.
European Weather Outlook
It has been a tough week all over the Alps recently with heavy rain, warm temperatures and strong sunshine all negatively impacting snow quality. However, a change is coming and the early signs of its arrival are visible already. Cloud cover will gently increase throughout today as much needed fresh snow and cold temperatures move in tonight. Tomorrow will see cloudy snowy conditions all over the Alps with light to moderate snowfalls expected. The freezing level will quickly drop which means it will snow all the way down to the valley floor.
Beyond this sudden change Saturday will bring slightly warmer temperatures by the afternoon with Sunday being a mostly sunny day. A large snow storm is currently is forecast to bring very heavy snowfalls to the Alps next week. It would seem winter is returning from its brief summer vacation, and not a moment too soon.
In the Pyrenees a mostly sunny weekend is ahead, no significant snowfall is expected before Tuesday 28th.
In far north Scandinavia a slight change to the normal pattern of dull overcast weather. Moderate snowfalls are expected over the next few days. Powder days are unlikely but certainly enough to create excellent on piste conditions.
