Val d’Isere in France is our biggest selling individual resort and each winter we send over 1,000 clients on a ski holiday to this fantastic Espace Killy ski station. Many of those clients return year after year because for them it is simply the best ski resort in the world. The skiing, shared with Tignes, is about as good as you can find anywhere (snow sure, varied and with terrain to suit beginners right through to expert off-piste level). However, there is just as much going on off the slopes as there is on. Below you will find the Val d’Isere Events Calendar for the winter season starting at the end of November 2014 and lasting through to May 2015 – it is packed with fun stuff to do for all ages.
If you would like help booking up a holiday to one of the chalets in Val d’Isere or one of the Val d’Isere hotels to co-incide with one of the events below please do not hesitate to get in touch.
