Val D'Isere is probably the world's most famous ski resort. Early December sees the hosting of the Premier Neige Downhill competition as seen on Ski Sunday. It is a very lively venue for a skiing holiday with one of the best snow records in Europe and an impressive amount of on and off-piste skiing. Combined with Tignes it forms the skiing area Espace Killy with 300km of slopes, 200 snow cannons and 100 ski lifts.
The vast amount of runs means there is something to suit all levels of ability whether you are a total novice or an experienced off piste skier.
The Espace Killy's record of snowfall is exceptional and snow coverage tends to be one of the best in Europe with good conditions facilitating great skiing right through the season from late November to the beginning of May.
As well as plentiful skiing there are many other activities to experience including snow shoeing or cross country skiing through beautiful and dramatic scenery, ice skating, swimming, 4x4 ice driving and for the more adventurous ice climbing and paragliding. For the less energetic there are many wonderful shops and some of the hotels offer relaxing spa and pampering facilities.
The resorts have a vast array of bars and restaurants catering for a wide range of tastes from lively après ski and party nights to quiet romantic gourmet dinners by a roaring fire. Taxis are readily available for nights out in Val D'Isere, Tignes and Les Brevières.
