Skiing around Val d’Isère is dramatic and exhilarating. There is a modern lift system to bring you up to the mountain peaks, and the lift pass office offers a range of ski passes designed for different ability levels. The area known as Espace Killy- in honor of the championship skier Jean-Claude Killy - is renowned for presenting challenges to the most expert skiers.
La Face, the site of the Oylmpic downhill in 1992, is also ideal for highly experienced skiers who crave a thrilling, heart-pumping experience. Beginners can use the free Village drag and then head for the Ski Tranquille area of Borsat, while more experienced skiers can ski Criterium in La Daille and Mattis.
A quick trip to Tignes also provides many options for skiing at different levels. If you are not a skier, spend the day shopping in town while enjoying the scenic surroundings, and then meet up with the skiers in your party by taking the chairlift to a perfect alpine lunch spot surrounded by snowy mountains and clear blue skies.
