VAL D’ISÈRE SKIING

For hardened skiers, there are few better locations in the Alps. Many corporate ski clients require a big ski brand for their events and Val d’Isère certainly has that. Val d’Isère has a towering ski area with glacier skiing offering skiing for much of the year and accessing some epic off-piste skiing. There are huge, wide slopes in the Solaise sector and steeps running down from Bellevarde. Val d’Isère is also lift & piste linked to the neighbouring Tignes ski area. Solaise or the village centre offer the best options for beginner skiers, whilst the pistes from Col de Fresse are an absolute dream for learner skiers and snowboarders. Famed for its tough skiing, Val d’Isère offers steep skiing as well as some truly epic, high altitude, off-piste skiing including the Le Col Pers or the tree routes above Le Fornet. Local guides are highly regarded and there is a big ski touring community in Val d’Isère.

For corporate groups with mixed ability, intermediate skiers, Val d’Isère is also a stand-out destination with some fantastic, long pistes through all the sectors. Some of the best terrain is found at Solaise or above La Daille. The runs back into Val d’Isère can be crowded, narrow and steep but downloads are possible for the less good skiers and boarders. And when the huge resources of Val d’Isère are exhausted, mile-hungry intermediates can head over to Tignes. The pistes from the Col de Fresse are an intermediate’s dream, whilst the pistes from L’Aiguille Percee on the far side of Tignes are similarly fantastic for intermediate skiers. Glacier skiing at the Grande Motte, high above Tignes ensures that skiing is possible almost year-round, with stunning views from this cloud-busting height.
