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.

The Pyrenees experienced huge amounts of new snow this week with over 100cm falling at Cauterets (280/380cm) on Wednesday 5th March. There was also so much new snow the previous day that the resort remained closed on Tuesday 4th March but sunny weather returned on Thursday 6th March.
There was also heavy snow in Chamonix (175/265cm) this week with 30cm of fresh powder hitting the area on Tuesday. There are still great conditions on and off piste and sunny skies on Thursday meant there was perfect visibility.
