||Val d'Isere is part of the
Espace Killy, and the skiing is difficult to beat. There are miles of great
intermediate pistes, the glacier at Tignes, the long runs down to La Daille,
and experts will test their skill and nerve on the Olympic downhill, the
steep moguls of the Face and the huge number of off-piste possibilities.
The apres-ski can be very lively, but with tea dances as well
just about everyone is catered for. Non-skiing activities include microlite flights,
snowmobiles, husky sleighs, parasailing, ice driving, ice climbing, under-ice diving,
snow shoe walks and skating. You can even ski at night if you've still got the
Access: The nearest international airport is Geneva, 113
miles. Lyon is slightly further away 133 miles.
Road access to the resort is via the A43/A430 to Albertville, from where it is a
35 mile drive on the D902 to Val d'Isere. In common with other major resorts
Val d'Isre is taking action to reduce the increasing congestion caused by too
many cars and too little space (especially when there's a lot of snow). Pedestrian
areas are therefore given priority in the centre of the resort and the 10 car parks
are charged for.
The nearest rail station is 18 miles away at Bourg St Maurice.
