Bellevarde sector: Santons blue piste


On the Slopes
Val d'Isère is best suited to good intermediates and advanced riders, but its extensive area and variety of terrain allows it to cater for all abilities.
Local Sectors
The 3 individual sectors that make up Val d'Isère's local ski area are quite distinct, giving a different character to each day:

Le Fornet & the Pissaillas Glacier  At the furthest, highest edge of the marked, but breachable, boundary and as high and wild as it sounds, yet still accessible to most competent abilities. Good cruising blues flowing down the Iseran Valley towards Le Signal above the hamlet of Le Fornet.

Solaise  Val d'Isère's original core ski zone, with snow-sure, motorway-wide blue pistes groomed to perfection and undulating through a high, open snowbowl; finally swooping to the foot of the town on much more challenging runs through sheltered wooded slopes.

Bellevarde/La Daille  Stretches over a high open snowbowl above Val d'Isère and La Daille, and possesses the jewels in the Espace Killy's on-piste crown: the fast Face black run, which challenged the world's best alpine sports athletes at the 1992 Winter Olympics and the 2009 World Alpine Ski Chamionships; and the long and sweeping OK red piste which forms the backbone of the Critérium de la Première Neige course. This sector also houses Val d'Isère's snowpark and links with Tignes to complete the Espace Killy domain.
