Val D’Isère offers legendary skiing in the French Alps. The ski region is now marketed as L’Espace Killy – including neighbouring Tignes ski resort, named after the famed French ski racer Jean Claude Killy. Linked together by multiple lifts, Val D’Isère Tigne offers skiers tons of terrain, high elevation skiing on two big glaciers, plenty of prepared (groomed) trail skiing, plus loads of high-level off-piste terrain to explore. The two ski resort of Val D’Isère and Tigne couldn’t be more different, and their skiing has distinct variety as well.

Fantastic place to go. The facilities in Val d'Isère are amazing and children are certainly welcome there. A large amount of slope kilometers mainly for the higher level of skiers. However, beginners will find there way too!... More

Within touching distance of numerous airports and Bourg St Maurice if you favour the train. The Espace Killy offers one of the best options for skiing in Europe. Great parks, off-piste and apres options. A must visit!... More

Val D'Isere was one of my favorite mountains when we lived in Switzerland. They have something for everyone, and you can go to Tignes with the same pass, so that makes it very convenient.
