Considered by many to be the world's premier ski resort, Val d'Isère is hard to fault, offering some of the best skiing anywhere together with exciting and lively après ski. The heart of Val d'Isère dates back to the 13th century, complementing its higher, more futuristic neighbour, Tignes. Between the two, there are around 97 ski-lifts whisking you in all directions up to heights of over 3450m (11,340ft), including the glacier on the Grande Motte, guaranteeing excellent snow.

Apres ski in Val d'Isère

Val d’Isère’s Après really kicks off at 3pm at the infamous Folie Douce bar on the mountain. Dancing on the tables to the live music is encouraged until 5pm, when you carefully negotiate your way down the slopes. A whole host of resort bars then offer fantastic happy hour prices up until the time that you go back to your chalet for dinner. Moris Pub, Petit Danois and Cafe Face are best for music; Saloon and Blue Note are great for nibbles. Your evenings are best spent in one of Dick’s Tea Bar or Doudoune, that both get critically acclaimed DJs to help you party until the early hours of the morning.

Families and children

Val d’Isère has an excellent and richly deserved reputation for its family-friendliness. Up on the pistes there are gentle green runs ideal for learners making their first turns as well as a special zone tranquille perfect for gentle progression. You’ll find chalets and hotels here with fantastic in-house childcare options available and in addition there are very high quality external nanny companies in operation.
