Val d'Isere, Skiing & Sno...

Val d’Isere along with its partner and neighbour Tignes have combined their ski areas to form the vast region known as L’Espace Killy. This supersized ski area covers 300 kilometers of marked piste and offers considerable opportunities for off-piste riding too. The terrain is certainly interesting and there is plenty of variety. From steep, rocky and extremely terrifying to gentle, serene, tree lined pleasantries the Espace Killy and Val d’Isere offer skiing and snowboarding conditions suitable for all levels of rider.

Most commentators that have had the pleasure of riding here have had something positive to say about it. And they tend to agree that it is simply sensational. For back country and freeride fans there really is no contest. Val d’Isere is undoubtedly one of the world’s premier freeride destinations.

Beginner

ski rating

Beginners have the use of free slopes down at resort level. To progress you have to head up the mountain where longer green and blue runs can be used to build up confidence. For those up to the challenge there is the bonus of some extremely long green and blue runs that lead all the way from the top back to the village. These really help give a sense of what it’s all about. Roaming the mountain and enjoying the varied scenery and of course the exquisite sensations offered by snow sports.

Intermediate

ski rating

The Espace Killy is an intermediates dream, offering tremendous skiing and snowboarding in a truly fabulous setting. Wide ranging this area is the intrepid adventurers ideal. Explore the network of blues and reds that lead down to the satellites of Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes Les Brevieres, ride high to Aguile Noire de Pramecou and see some unusual geological features and try out the thigh burning top to bottom descents from the summit of La Grande Motte. And don’t forget the numerous blues and reds above each of the Val d’Isere hamlets.

Advanced

ski rating

Simply awesome; several challenging pistes and endless off-piste opportunities abound throughout the Espace Killy area. The only thing you’ll be wanting for is more. There is so much off-piste here it is well worth hiring a guide to make the most of it. Check out the Tour de Charvet for powder bowls and the Rochers de la Grande Balme for couloirs.

Freestyle, Skier and BoarderCross

The Espace Killy ski area is a serious contender for best freeride and freestyle zone on the planet. Superb parks are complimented by an awesome array of natural features that pepper the mountainsides. Upside down, round and round.
