Beginners skiing in Val d'Isère

A few nursery slopes in the resort, served by free lifts, are complemented by a new high-altitude sector for beginners at the top of the new Solaise lift. These nursery slopes are served by three covered magic carpet lifts. The area is designed especially for children from 3 to 10 years old. The four areas encourage children to try their hand at snow sports, whilst having fun at the same time.

Intermediate skiing in Val d'Isère

Practically unlimited possibilities: there are some exhilarating runs from Bellevarde down to La Daille, or cruise down the Iseran valley as far as Le Fornet

Advanced skiing in Val d'Isère

The famous 'Face' piste - the men's Olympic downhill - is a must, as are some of the resort's unrivalled off-piste, especially on the Le Fornet side. Take a local qualified guide and explore the glorious bowls and challenging couloirs of this huge area. Or use a guide to go ski touring to discover the untracked areas. Each day at 2pm on the Front de neige you can practise with transceivers and probes to discover 'victims' with the help of an expert.

Snowboarding in Val d'Isère

A boarders' paradise: very few drag lifts and lots of off-piste. The world-class snowpark has 30 kickers and obstacles for beginners to advanced. It is located on Bellevarde beside the slalom course and is easily reached from the top of the Olympique gondola or e Funival funicular from La Daille. There are also two natural ski/boardercross courses on Bellevarde and another track on Solaise for racers to pit their skills against each other in a safe but fun environment.
