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 17-Dec-2014)
There was widespread cloud cover seen across France on Monday 15th December. Parts of France saw patches of sunshine but on the whole it was overcast for most of our featured resorts in France. The weekend saw lots of resorts open their gates but skiing is fairly limited due to the lack of snow but the best conditions can be found higher up the mountain where well groomed runs are available.
Les Deux Alpes (2/80cm) is offering good riding conditions up on the glacier and on Monday there was a total of 12 lifts in operation. The resort runs are either closed or in a fair state so it is better to stick to the runs at a higher altitude. Thicker clouds developed in the afternoon at Les Deux Alpes and there was light snow forecast for later in the day.
Over the next few days the weather is expected to change with more clouds forecast but there is a chance of fresh snow across all the ski regions during the middle of the week.
European Weather Outlook
After a fairly cloudy day on Monday across Europe, the forecast is indicating that the clouds will thicken and there is a significant chance of fresh snow to all of our featured countries on Wednesday. Switzerland looks as though it will benefit the most with up to 12cm being predicted, where as the likes of France, Italy and Austria should see an average fall of around 5cm. The freezing level may rise above 2000m later in the week which could see light rain but the slopes at high altitude shouldn’t be affected.
Bulgaria had a fairly clear day on Monday and this is expected to continue until midweek then more clouds should move in but this could bring more fresh snow.
Norway / Sweden have differing forecasts to each other in that Norway is expecting quite a cloudy week with scattered snow showers being predicted throughout the week. Sweden on the other hand looks as though it will be brighter with a few cloudy spells.
