It's easy to see why Val d'Isere remains one of the best loved French skiing destinations. It's kept the charm and the feel of its rural village roots while growing into a modern resort with a lovely atmosphere. Flaunt some fashion if you must, indulge in the crazy nightlife if you care to, but more importantly come for the skiing as there's superb terrain and enough variety to suit everyone. The nursery slopes are in the middle of the resort and beginners can discover easy runs in breath-taking scenery above the tree line. Stronger skiers have the vast Espace Killy to explore, from the challenge of the Solaise bumps to the wide open pistes of the glacier at Fornet. Off-piste enthusiasts are spoiled for choice and it's the perfect place to combine off-piste guiding and instruction.
