Val d’Isère: grand ski destination

Going to Airelles Val d’Isère, it also means to choose one of the most beautiful sky area of the world. It has to be stated that being linked to the Tignes resort within the espace Killy, the Val d’Isère has numerous arguments.

“First, it is a true four seasons resort, which is open from autumn to spring and furthermore we can enjoy summer on the Tignes glaciers” as said by Thomas Boulet, Bernard Orcel Technical Director, who is particularly fond of this area and is delighted with the opening of a Bernard Orcel ski room in Airelles Val d’Isère. Second asset of charm, and not the least: “Due to its location in the mountains massif, Val d’Isère benefits from a superb snowfall with lovely flurries of snow and sometimes those do not happen elsewhere.” So, a sure value.

Concerning ski, the resort has the reputation of its ski runs, which are favourable to a more sportive practice that will seduce the advanced skiers who are looking for strong and diversified thrills. More than 300 km of ski runs, doomed or less doomed, and among them the true myths as the Face de Bellevarde, 90 ski lifts or also two snow parks. The non-enthusiasts of ski runs will enjoy beautiful waypoints in woods or large virgin spaces facing the mountain (always equipped with Arva and with an ABS back bag, which are available in the ski room).

“Val d’Isère benefits from a superb snowfall with lovely flurries of snow.”

The beginners will not be forgotten: in the resort, they can enjoy the tops of the mountains, “in contrast with numerous areas in the resort bottom where the green and blue ski runs are, here the altitude plateaux ski spaces are totally accessible. To avoid the most difficult ski runs, there is the option of climbing and returning to the resort using the chair lifts,” states Thomas Boulet.

Here at Val d’Isère, great feelings are waiting for old and young alike!
