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 16-Apr-2014)
Excellent spring riding conditions exist across the open French resorts this week. Bright sunny weather blessed skiers on Monday 14th April, and similar weather is expected for most of this week. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend.
The deepest base depth of our featured French resorts is reported at Cauterets (310/410cm) in the Pyrenees. The skiing is very good at Cauterets and at Bareges/La Mongie (90/300cm) due to the excellent snowfall the Pyrenees has received this season.
St Gervais and Chamrousse both closed for the season over the weekend, joining Font Romeu, Foux d’Allos, Notre Dame de Bellecombe and Villard de Lans.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
