Phoebe, Our friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Val d'Isère

Ski Range 1,850m – 3,456m

The ultra high altitude skiing of the legendary Espace Killy virtually guarantees the very best conditions for Val d'Isère right from late November to early May, whilst the superb high-tech ski lift system whisks you rapidly up to a world with guaranteed snow on the Pissaille Glacier and varied skiing that really does have something for everyone.

There is a surprising charm to Val d'Isère too, with the attractive old village surrounded by sensitive development using lots of stone, slate and wood. Hand in hand with its world-class skiing goes Val d’Isère's equally famous nightlife. Explore the partially pedestrianised centre and discover why the après-ski is just as exciting as the skiing!

NEW Gondola December 2016, marked the opening of the brand new Solaise Gondola. The two-year 16 million Euro redevelopment of the Solaise mountain. The old chair-lift and Solaise cable-car have been replaced with a new 10-person gondola with 91 cabins, heated seats and WIFI; increasing the capacity by 40% per hour. Great news for Val d’Isère and you!

Val d'Isere offers perhaps the most varied, famous and trendy nightlife and après scenes in the French Alps. From the world famous après bar the La Folie Douce and the Val d'Isere institution that is Dicks Tea Bar to the sophisticated La Cave sur La Comptoir wine bar. Val d'Isere has something to offer all tastes.

La Folie Douce The La Folie Douce is perhaps one of the most famous bars in the Alps; it has a huge outside dance area where you will find champagne flowing, people dancing on tables and resident DJs/singers playing 'Deep House', Electro sound on top of the rooftop. The bar is situated at the top of the La Daille gondola, useful for those not wanting to ski down the piste after a few drinks- Open all afternoon until 5pm.

The bar caters for all generations and serves up a mixture of live music, house dj's, large beers and of course dancing on tables outside. The bar is situated right at the foot of Solaise and the Face de Bellevarde, which gives you spectacular views of the surrounding mountains as you enjoy a few drinks after your day on the slopes.

The main dance floor opens from 1:00am and closes in the early hours of 5:00am- making Dicks the perfect place to see in the early hours of a morning.

Le Petit Danois Le Petit Danois is a favourite of Gavin-one of our Ski Total Reservation supervisors. He says 'The Le Petit Danois is my favourite après-ski bar in Val d'Isere. It has pool tables for when the weather is bad, the bar staff are super friendly and the Danish beer they serve gets everyone dancing on tables in no time. Plus they serve the best burger in town'. The Le Petit Danois is located in the resort centre up the road from the main roundabout.

La Cave sur La ComptoirLa Cave sur La Comptoir is a cosy little wine bar which is a must for wine connoisseurs. The bar serves a wide range of over 30 wines which are sold by the glass- a perfect excuse to sample the different wines on offer.

SKIING IN Val d’Isère

Ski Range 1,850m – 3,456m

The world-famous Espace Killy ski area links Val d’Isère with Tignes, connecting some of the highest peaks of the Savoie Alps. The skiing is never-ending; snowfalls are reliable and the area’s six-month season, starting in November, is one of the longest in Europe.

La Solaise, Le Fornet and Bellevarde make up the interlinking local ski area with an excellent connecting free ski bus. A choice of lifts lead up to the Solaise, with its infamous bumps, or the new gondola at Bellevarde and its challenging ‘Face’. These offer good skiers over 1,000m of tricky skiing back to the resort, although there are also many runs to cruise between and behind the two peaks throughout your Val d’Isère skiing holidays.

Behind the Solaise is the Pissaillas glacier, with its excellent powder, from where you can cruise down to the pretty hamlet of Le Fornet (home to our Chalets Bonnevie, Bonneval Pomme de Pin and Le Bandire) for an inviting lunch. In the other direction, you can connect to Tignes, using the express Funival lift. Above here, a further world of variety rises up to 3,500m on the Grand Motte and down to 1,500m at Les Brevières – another atmospheric lunch stop.

Our Chalet Hotel Champs Avalin in La Daille offers the swiftest and simplest access to the ski area, with the funicular railway straight up to Bellevarde, plus a chair and gondola connecting to the Tommeuses and Borsat lifts, taking you up and over to Tignes. And at the end of your day, a choice of pistes in every colour lead right back down to La Daille.
