Avenues & Alleyways
Val d'Isère is a sizeable town, with a wide range of hotels, chalets and apartments; restaurants and bars; shops and amenities, serving a year-round population.
This area's main attraction is still the quality and quantity of its snowsports terrain. Enthusiasts rank Val d'Isère alongside Chamonix and La Grave
as a full-on, serious snowsports station. The sheer extent and seriousness of the off-piste potential is a big draw, with wild high-altitude glacial zones and steep powder chutes that seem to go on forever, aided by a favourable microclimate that has delivered an average of 6 m (20 ft) of the white gold every year. The resort primarily appeals to, and is ideally suited to, good intermediates and advanced riders, but the huge area and variety of accessible terrain means that there is something here for everyone.
As a Mecca for experts and off-piste extreme enthusiasts, yet a popular family resort with high-quality accommodation and well-established services, Val d'Isère has consolidated its position as one of snowsports' world-class all-rounders.
