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 27-Nov-2015)

Yet more heavy snow has fallen in France, with further snow showers piling into parts of the Alps on Thursday 26th November. More resorts are due to open this weekend, and with more snow in the forecast there should be some excellent early season conditions on offer! On Thursday the best skiing was to be found at Val Thorens (75/100cm) following 30cm of fresh snow. Powder conditions were reported across the mountain and with nine lifts and 17 runs open, the early season conditions were fantastic. Unfortunately high winds limited lift operations in Tignes (30/100cm), but when the Grande Motte does reopen there will be 40cm of fresh snow to play in – albeit somewhat wind affected. The link to neighbouring Val d’Isere (30/100cm) is set to open at the weekend and some further snow showers expected there may be a fresh top up for opening weekend. Conditions in the Chamonix (35/150cm) valley should also be fantastic when the first lifts start turning on Saturday, thanks to 35cm of snow on Thursday and well over a metre in the past seven days. Thursday’s snow is set to clear through for Friday, bringing a brief sunny weather window to the French Alps. Snow is set to return on Saturday and Sunday, although snowfall totals look set to be more modest than forecast earlier in the week, so look for between 10-20cm of fresh powder. A few resorts have been mentioned already, but several ski areas are set to turn their lifts for the first time this season over the weekend. These may be subject to change, but as of Thursday morning these resorts are due to open: Alpe d’Huez, Argentiere, Cauterets, Chamonix, Les Houches, Montgenevre and Val d’Isere.

European Weather Outlook

Thursday’s snow is set to clear through the Alps from the west, lingering longest in the Austrian Alps, where a further 10cm is possible during the day. A mostly sunny Friday is then forecast, accompanied by temperatures well below freezing at all levels. Another snow front is then set to move into the Alps on Saturday, although it is looking likely to be less potent than initially expected. Snowfall totals are therefore likely to be much more modest, with between 10-25cm forecast for most resorts in the Alps. Sunshine and settled weather finally looks to be returning in time for the new week, with sunny skies and milder temperatures (above freezing at most levels during the day) expected. Little snowmelt is likely however owing to cold overnight temperatures, short days and weak sunshine. Very similar weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, although less snow is forecast to fall over the weekend, with only 10cm likely at our featured resorts. Slightly higher temperatures are also forecast next week, with daytime peaks of around 7C expected at mid-mountain level. Heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria on Friday, dropping as much as 30cm on our featured resorts. More settled weather is then expected next week, with a slow rise in temperature looking likely as the week progresses. Once Friday’s warm spell passes through, a very wintry spell of weather is predicted for Scandinavia over the weekend and into the start of next week. Heavy snow is set to track through Norway and Sweden on Sunday/Monday, bringing at least 20cm of new snow to our featured resorts, with as much as 50cm possible at Voss on the west coast. Very unsettled and stormy weather is forecast for Scotland over the weekend and into next week, with high winds forecast to accompany spells of heavy rain and heavy snow. Hopefully after the snow falls (most likely on Friday and Saturday), the rain will not wash away all of the fresh accumulations and a decent base will begin to build.
