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 22-Feb-2017)
The story in France on Monday 20th of February was of lovely, sunny weather but with variable snow conditions. The holiday crowds mean that much of the grippy snow disappears as the day goes on, leaving slopes hard packed and icy in places. Generally, however, slopes remain good right down to resort.
The sun was shining in the Portes du Soleil today with most areas still holding decent snow cover. The best skiing is probably in Avoriaz (90/120cm). Beware of slopes getting a little icy and hard late on, caused in part by the cold and shade but mostly by the sheer quantity of traffic on the slopes. Chatel (30/75cm) is about ready to burst right now, with queues being especially bad at the Linga telecabine lift.
The sun was also out in Flaine (63/195cm) where slopes were in mostly good condition despite being variable in quality. At the top, slopes could be hard packed, especially where shaded, whereas where exposed to the sun, slopes softened up fast.
There were some interesting conditions to report in Font Romeu (130cm) where lots of snow plus warm temperatures and blazing sunshine have led to some early spring conditions. Expect runs to be hard on the legs. In Villard de Lans (35/80cm), there was no natural snow at the bottom of the mountain, and resort runs were made of artificial snow. Head up high for the best skiing there.
European Weather Outlook
It is going to a mix of weather conditions in the Alps this week. This weekend should see some excellent snow conditions all over The Alps, but we will see some strange weather before then. Austria and Germany will see a brief period of very warm temperatures in the next few days. This sudden mixing of warm and cold air will bring wide spread rain. The freezing level will quickly rise to between 1500m and 1800m, snow can be expected above 1900m. Italy and France will see cloud cover related to the change but shouldn’t expect any precipitation. Switzerland will see lots of cloud and potentially some mixed precipitation but nothing too heavy. Beyond this cold air will return rapidly late on Thursday. It’s not exactly clear what weekend conditions will be like currently, however most resorts in the central and northern Alps will experience powder skiing conditions on Saturday. For a more accurate picture on weekend condition check back here on Thursday.
It is also worth mentioning that currently there is a large storm appearing in the long range forecast for the end of this month. It still a long way away but it is worth a little bit of excitement over.
In The Pyrenees the weather will be mostly sunny this week. No new snow is currently forecast with the exception of Sierra Nevada where light snow is expected every day this week.
Snowy conditions return to Scandinavia this week with light to moderate snow forecast in Norway Finland and Sweden.
