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.
