From the famous ‘La Face’ black run to the fabulous après-ski scene, the ski resort of Val d’Isère in the French Alps is a pleasing mix of superb skiing and lively chic. Located in the expansive Espace Killy which enjoys a good snow record, and includes the resort of Tignes which is easily accessed from Val d’Isère, the skiing is virtually limitless.
Beginners can enjoy easy runs and a superb choice of ski schools, while more advanced skiers will love the blues, reds, blacks, tree runs and, on a powder day, exhilarating off-piste. The town itself is fairly lively, with a good mixture of young bars and a broad range of restaurants, from reasonably-priced pizzerias to more exclusive authentic French eateries.
