Written by Leith a Skier from Belmont, Victoria.
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.
