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-Jan-2017)
Thursday 12th of January was a day for bated breath as we await the big dump that is arriving overnight and into Friday. A bit of fresh snow over the last few days has freshened up slopes and even provided some powder off piste (if you don’t mind scrapping a few rocks underneath) so there were some good conditions available if you were willing to brave the weather. Excellent skiing was, for instance, available in Bonneval sur Arc (45/220cm) and La Plagne (3/105cm) where fresh powder meant fresh tracks. Some of the best skiing in France, however, was not found in the Alps but in the Pyrenees. Resorts like Bareges/La Mongie (50/100cm) and Cauterets (60/80cm) have had up to 40cm recently. Let’s hope the next few days bring more of the same.
European Weather Outlook
Winter has arrived, better late than never apparently. The past few days has seen excellent snow fall, particularly in Austria, now its France, Italy and Switzerland’s turn. Coming up is a change in the direction of the flow of cold air. This change will, over the next 72 hours finally bring sizeable snow falls to resorts around The Matterhorn and Mont Blanc Massif. Strong winds are prevailing in some areas of the European Alps today. These winds will likely stay moderate to strong during the storm, this will mean uneven distribution of snow throughout the entire south western Alps range. In the east Italian resorts in the Sella Ronda will also see just under half a metre of new snow arrive. For the worried masses traveling to the Alps, fret no more. Over the weekend and into next week at time the visibility will be poor but the skiing will be fantastic.
The good news doesn’t stop for resorts in Germany either. The forecast is for more heavy snowfalls over the next three days. This week’s snowfalls should bed down a snow base to last the rest of the season, even the off piste areas will start becoming an option.
In Austria, briefly speaking the tap will stay on for the next three days with moderate to heavy snowfalls expected to continue. Beyond 72 hours the storm will slow down but conditions will stay cloudy with light snow.
The Pyrenees are getting some excellent snow fall currently, this will continue into the weekend. A great time to be skiing in the area.
