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 25-Nov-2014)

The conditions warmed up across the French resorts over the weekend, but this did not stop Alpe d’Huez (10/100cm), La Clusaz (0/100cm) and Val Thorens (50/90cm) opening lifts for visitors on Saturday 22nd November. This was only a temporary weekend opening for Alpe d’Huez and La Clusaz, while at Val Thorens the lifts are now open daily for their season. Tignes (15/70cm) was already open and again this week you can enjoy great skiing up on the Grande Motte glacier. The linked resort of Val d’Isere (15/50cm), which together with Tignes forms the Espace Killy ski area, will open for the winter season this coming Saturday 29th November. Serre Chevalier (0/156cm) plans to open for weekend skiing on 29th November too, as a season pre-opener. They are saying this is the first time they’ve opened for a pre-opener in November. Chatel (0/10cm) plans to open for weekend skiing in the Pre-la-Joux area from 29th November. The resort will only be open at weekends until they open daily from 13th December. Les Deux Alpes (0/90cm), Bareges/La Mongie (0/20cm) and Cauterets (15/25cm) all plan to open on Saturday too, although the Pyrenean resorts have not received as much fresh snow as the Alpine destinations. Font Romeu, a Pyrenean resort, has unfortunately postponed its opening from this coming Saturday due to the lack of snow cover.

European Weather Outlook

The weekend brought high temperatures to many resorts across Europe with some seeing as high as 10C. The high temperatures are expected to continue throughout the week so do take this into account when heading out to the slopes. The forecast across Europe this week is quite varied with Austria expecting lots of sunshine, with the odd patch of cloud early on. It should be a great week for skiing in Austria with great visibility and don’t forget the sun cream. On the other hand a large weather front is predicted to develop over Italy, France and Switzerland and as a result each country is expecting clouds to move in over the next couple of days. This emergence of cloud cover is expected to bring light snowfall, with the glacial resorts of Italy forecast to receive the most, particularly in Cervinia with up to 7cm being predicted.
