My wife and I were lucky enough to ski for one week in early Feb this year at Val D'Isere and we loved it.

The main drag is quiet amazing, truly beautiful and the huge mountains that seem to dwarf the area are spectacular.

Lifts are very good also with a short walk from the village centre. The terrain was impressive, something for everyone. Off piste options are plentiful, take a local ski guide though if you don't want to end up skiing off a cliff!

Prices for lunch and dinner are expensive, take a packed lunch or cook dinner at home if possible. We loved the location of Alpina Lodge but if you want to sleep at night, don't stay on the main street side. The "Underground" niteclub located within the building starts pumping at 10pm until 2am, then the loud party animals stagger out until 3am. After 3 nights of no sleep management kindly upgraded us to a rear facing larger apartment.

Check out the famous "La Folie Douce" for the ultimate afternoon slopeside apres ski experience.

Book with Altibus for bus transfers from Geneva airport.

So Many Slopes, So Little Time

Written by John a Skier from Melbourne, Australia
29/01/2014

Thanks to a late flight, we missed the bus booked for us out of Geneva. A quick phone call to our Hotel reassured us that our way-past-bedtime arrival would still be met with a warm welcome.

We awoke to snow falling prettily on the stone and timber buildings that surrounded our intimate and centrally-located accommodation. Cute town!

It was hard to decide which of the delicious delicacies to scoff at breakfast. We managed by trying as many as possible. Another demanding decision awaited us outside. Where to ski? We picked Bellvarde and the protected tree runs of La Daille, returning at the end of the day via the free shuttle.

Next day was a blue sky wonder. Every lift journey produced gasps of wonder as the vast expanse of Val D’Isere and Tignes was laid out beneath our boots. A web of tracks braiding the slopes between the manicured pistes explained the high fat ski content of each cable car.

An après beer, hot shower and cosy dinner completed the day’s joy. Repeat daily.

In six days there was no hope of skiing even a representative sample.  Note to self: stay longer next time.

Val d'Isere

Written by Ann a Skier from Gold Coast, QLD. Australia

Despite a broken finger incurred while skiing this was an excellent skiing holiday.

Easy access to lifts thanks to the automatic readers of the lift pass.  Plenty of choice of easy and moderate runs once up the mountain.

Our Hotel was not only well situated and comfortable but recently refurbished in stunning style. My husband is keen to go back and that is in itself the biggest recommendation as he normally NEVER likes to revisit past destinations being aslways keen to try something new. 

You could not better this one.
