Extensive skiing opportunities, cozy atmosphere, beautiful chalets, lovely surroundings. However, its getting more expensive each year, but then you have a certain clientelle aka Russians who can pay so why lower the prices? Every time its a real pleasure to be there and to ski in the Espace Killy - awesome skiing. The apres ski is nothing like in Austrian in resorts such as Lech, its about the same level as in Verbier ...

The ski area is heaven for intermediate and advanced skiers, however youll find better resorts if you want beginner slopes. There is some nice skiing on the Grand Motte glacier for intermediates as well as the slopes around the Aiguille Percee in Tignes. For advanced skiiers, don miss the tough Val DIsere black runs such as Face, Epaule du Charvet, Piste S and 3000. For easy-going intermediates, the slopes around the bellevarde area are great for cruising around as well as the Solaise runs. My favourite run in the whole of the Espace Killy area is the long Sache black run on the eastern side of Tignes. Start at the top of the Aiguille Percee before *ping 1200 metres on steep and varied terr...

The Espace Killy pass in Val d'Isere allows you to ski all the way from Val d'Isere to Tignes Les Brevieres. This is a huge ski area, one of which you cannot get board of in just one week. Starting at about 1850m, a few lifts and a mountain train will get you to a peak of 3650m! Off the mountain (or apres ski as they liked to call it), you could wander around the village and the street shops or you could walk into expensive shops and restaurants. For those on a budget, there were a few options, but if you’re going to Val d’Isere, it’ll be worthwhile to spend some money. The only downside to the trip was the rather quiet night life. ...

Visited Val d'Isere in a group with three other snowboarders for a week from the 28th of March 2008. We stayed at Les Verdets apartments and although these were pretty cosy, they were conveniently located for the slopes and resort center. A couple of members of our group had visited Val d'Isere before and knew where the best skiing could be found. However, I have to say that the entire area was fantastic with no particularly poor runs and lots of memorable stuff (especially if you're at intermediate level). The crowds were light for the time of year and the snow conditions were fantastic. Any run can feel great if it's got a good covering of the white stuff! The only runs we didn't really en...

Just returned from a week's skiing in Val d'Isere. We were a group of ten ranging in experience from a complete beginner and a few cautious intermediates to people who could ski anything on the mountain. Val d'Isere is definitely a resort for strong confident skiers. All the reviews we had read in advance - inconsistent grading of runs, poor runs back to the village - are true! We stayed in a catered chalet in the Legettez area booked through Ski Total. This area proved to be a good place to be to provide easier ski in/ski out access to the chalet that the cautious intermediates could tackle - from the village, take the Rogoney chair then a green traverse joins in at the bottom of the red Pi...
