Cheap ski hire Val d'Isère
Found at the end of the Tarentaise valley, Val d'Isère is a pretty town around an 11th century church at its centre. The town stands at a respectable 1,850m, with top slopes at an altitude of nearly 3,400m, beneath the summit of the Pointe du Montet. Linked to neighbouring Tignes to form the Espace Killy ski area of 300km of pistes and 94 lifts, Val d’Isère offers high quality, snow-sure slopes for everyone from complete beginner to veteran powderhound. Its long season stretches from the end of November into the first week of May, giving you an exceptionally long amount of time to take advantage of the varying Val d’Isère terrain.
Unlike so many resorts that claim a giant ski area, the pistes of Tignes and Val d'Isère are naturally linked without the need for long and boring connecting trails or lifts. On top of that, the Espace Killy's standard of piste grooming is extremely high and the lift system is constantly being upgraded, although you'll find most skiers tend to remain on the central runs in Solaise and on the Bellevarde. As with all the most popular destinations, the bulk of skiers here tend to be intermediates, but for the more advanced level Val d’Isère has challenging and exciting terrain, both on and off-piste. Runs like Col Pers make for deep snow that isn’t too steep.
The nightlife in Val d’Isère is some of the best in the Alps, having markedly taken off in the past few years. Visitors flood from Tignes to experience the bars, restaurants, and international atmosphere of the Val d’Isère après ski experience, as well as all the activities and entertainment on offer here. La Folie Douce starts the party off in the early afternoon, while Dick’s Tea Bar and Doudoune keep it going until the small hours of the morning. Rosée Blanche provides an excellent alternative if you’re looking for something a little quieter, and Le Jack is the leading bar for skiers with a taste for the more sophisticated drinking experience. The restaurants here are equally diverse and compelling, so perhaps it’s no surprise that this is Jamie Olivers favourite resort. The food here ranges from the traditional and affordable Savoyard eatery of The Lodge, to the fine dining of Table de l’Ours and L’Atelier d’Edmond, which hold a combined totally of 3 Michelin stars between them. It should come as no surprise that Val d’Isère has earning a prestigious place among the exclusive Top of the French Alps labelled resorts, which celebrates excellence and top quality service for foreign customers.
