Val D'isere Best Skiing & Snowboarding Holidays

High Altitude Glacier snowboarding! Val d isere has a vibrant and world renowned reputation...


Val D'isere is a world renowned Snowboarding resort with extensive shopping, a vibrant cafe culture is one of the best high altitude snowboarding resorts in France. "Val" is also known for it's apres ski antics and crazy party life, yet it is just as well suited to families that perhaps want a more sedate time in resort?

The snowboarding is very suitable to all abilities, and it offers an abundance of easy and intermediate riding all over the resort, and even has some easier blue runs right up on the glacier. The advanced snowboarders will find many more challenging runs too.

High Altitude Snow

At an altitude of over 3,250, and some very fine Glacier skiing and boarding, Val links straight up with its sister resort - Tignes, and enjoys a similar “Super-Resort” status. For those that are after famous Espace Killy terrain and value priced chalets, then our Snowboarding Holidays Tignes and Val D'Isere options are hard to match. The huge Espace Killy ski area is all included on the standard full area lift-pass.

Snowboarding in Val disere

Val D'Isere naturally offers some very good Snowboarding, alongside its world famous skiing. The Fornet area at the top of the valley - and at the base of the Glacier - is unbeatable in the powder and offers summit descents on wide, fast and extremely well kept slopes. The powder options are also very good and you will still find fresh tracks even days after a dump. Let's not also forget that it also snows very regularly here too - so it's often not "days" between snowfall anyway!
