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 20-Apr-2014)
The fine sunny weather which blessed the French resorts on Monday 14th April has lasted all week. This has reduced base depths in some locations and the snow does soften quite quickly, with the freezing level hovering around the 2,500m mark or just above it. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend, but the good news is that the freezing level is expected to drop to around 2,000m on Saturday 19th April which could result in fresh snowfall.
As you might expect for this time of year it is best to stick to the highest slopes if you prefer the conditions to be less sun affected, especially the sheltered and higher north facing slopes.
The Pyrenean resorts of Cauterets (260/360cm) and Bareges/La Mongie (65/270cm) offer some superb skiing at the moment due to the deep snow bases on the upper slopes.
Further north in the Alps there is also excellent skiing available. The classics for late season, such as Tignes (40/190cm), Val d’Isere (40/128cm) and Val Thorens (85/190cm), offer fantastic spring skiing due to their high elevations. The upper slopes at La Plagne (5/200cm) are also in very good shape. In the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 (95/270cm) has an impressive base depth on the higher slopes at the moment of over two and a half metres, providing lovely riding conditions.
European Weather Outlook
Predominantly cloudy weather is forecast across the European resorts over the Easter weekend and next week. The freezing level could drop to around 2,000m at the start of the weekend before rising back up to over 2,500m. The altitude of the slopes and the ski area will therefore dictate whether you can expect fresh snow or rain over this period.
