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 11-Mar-2014)
Fantastic sunny weather blesses the French resorts at the start of this week. Excellent snow conditions can still be enjoyed, especially on higher, north facing slopes. Even lower down the snow is still in great shape, although it can become soft by the afternoon.
Cauterets (250/350cm) in the Pyrenees has the deepest snow base of our reported French resorts, both on their lower and upper pistes, with an average base depth of three metres on Monday 10th March.
On Sunday 9th March, the Ski Club Leader in Tignes reported that the on piste snow conditions throughout the resort were excellent and not as busy as last week. In the Three Valleys, the Leader in Meribel said on Sunday ‘the pistes are in great condition and we had really good skiing particularly up Peclet and the Col’.
The forecast this week across France is for the sunny weather to remain, although there could the odd cloudy spell, with a chance of a very light dusting of snow in the Pyrenees.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts this week, although there is some cloudier weather expected on Thursday 13th March. This could deliver fresh snow to Austria and Germany. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m on Monday 17th March.
If you are after fresh snow then the Scandinavian resorts could be your best bet, as cloudy and snowy weather is forecast next weekend. Oppdal in Norway could receive almost 60cm of new snow by Tuesday 18th March.
