Val d’isere is not just one of the most popular ski resorts in France, it is one of the most popular in the entire world. It won ‘Best ski resort’ and ‘Best apres ski resort’ at the 2016 London Snow awards due to its variety of slopes for skiers of all levels, its nightlife, its stunning accommodation options and even for the non-skiing activities that it has to offer.
Budget-friendly holidays to the French Alps are available from most major airports in the UK. There are a number of ways to access this exciting resort, but we suggest flying to either Lyon or Geneva and getting a transfer from there which will take around 2 and a half hours. Check the Cheeky Trip comparison site for some of the best deals to winter ski resorts around the world. Flight duration to either of these major airports are usually in the range of 1 and a half to 2 hours.
Peak ski season is often considered the best time to visit Val d’isere, but there isn’t really a bad time to visit this buzzing ski resort. This place is one of Europe’s most snow-sure villages and the thick snow usually arrives in November and can last all the way until May. Many consider the end of April to be the best of the skiing conditions but as mentioned earlier, it is tough to book a bad time to come here!
Even though Val d’isereprides itself on the hustle and bustle, there are still plenty of families that come here for an incredible skiing getaway. The resort has a staggering 20 different ski schools to choose from but they can all get fairly busy so make sure to book in advance! Glacier skiing is also possible in this resort. These are less common around the various French resorts but provide some of the best skiing experiences due to their smooth snow and top to bottom ski runs.
