Val d’Isère and Tinges are interconected  ski resorts in the French Alps, near the Italian border. They are part of the Espace Killy ski area. Here, ski lifts give access to sites like the steep Face de Bellevarde, a black-rated piste, and the Grande Motte glacier, known for summer ski runs. The Col de l’Iseran mountain pass is a popular cycle route in summer. In town, bars and restaurants cluster around Avenue Olympique

    With its vast network of slopes, unparalleled snow record and vibrant village atmosphere, Val d’Isère/Tinges aree one of the true giants of world skiing.

     

    The Espace Killy ski area, which Val d’Isère shares with neighbouring Tignes, has lots to offer all levels of skier and boarder but is best suited to experts and advanced intermediates, with some of the greatest lift-served off-piste in the Alps. 

    Val d’Isère and Tinges are large ski resorts spread along a high remote valley, which becomes a dead end in winter with the seasonal closure of the Col d’Iséran.

    The resort has several distinct villages, with the purpose-built satellite of La Daille at the lower end of the valley and the rustic hamlet of Le Fornet at the other, both of which have their own access into the ski area.

    In between, the main resort of Val d’Isère is quite a hotchpotch of architectural styles but is a vibrant place to stay, with an attractive old village where you will find many restored farm buildings and a 17th century baroque church.


    Val d’Isère has a good choice of mountain restaurants spread across its ski area although they do get busy and you are strongly advised to reserve in advance.

    Val d’Isère has plenty to offer non-skiers including a sports centre with two swimming pools, an ice-skating rink and numerous winter activities including ice-driving, snow-shoeing and dog-sledding.  The village is also much more animated than most high-altitude French resorts with lots of enticing shops, cafés, bars and restaurants.


    Val d’Isère is one of the liveliest ski resorts in France with a wide range of après-ski options.


    Perhaps the most famous of all is the Folie Douce at the top of the La Daille gondola, which hosts lively (often raucous) parties from 3-5pm daily with live bands, DJs and cabaret. Coroico, at the bottom of Solaise, is a rival for late afternoon frivolities and almost as lively.
