Among the French Alps you will find Val d’Isère – one of the most beautiful ski resorts in all of France. The scenery will leave you breathless, and you’ll have many opportunities to experience it up close. From the national park to the 300 kilometres of pistes and 1,900 metres of vertical, the resort invites you to a hands-on experience of the mountains.
Scenic resort where nature is well preserved
Mix of traditional and modern Savoyard style
Family friendly – recipient of the Famille Plus Award from the French Tourism Ministry
Vanoise National Park – established in 1963 as the first French National Park
November through the end of April for the primary ski season

Drive or bike the mountain pass Route des Grandes Alps. You’ll want to hit the brakes and pause to take in the serene beauty of the view from Col de l’Iseran, the highest road on the mountain pass at 2,770 metres.
Experienced skiers will love the challenge of the ski area’s multiple red and black runs.
Inexperienced skiers can take a class at one of the many ski schools; there are over a dozen in the area. We recommend Oxygène or Evolution 2 Val d’Isère.
