In a Nutshell

Val d’Isere is a high rollers’ resorts with a big time après ski and ski area fit for a king; people who go to Val d’Isere don’t mess around, and it’s a given that you ride hard and party hard in France’s premier resort.  A common concern that comes with this resort is the price tag but by coming with NUCO you will certainly be pleasantly surprised by what we can offer. It’s a picturesque resort and walking the high street will make you feel like you’re in a real traditional ski town rather than a purpose built ski resort. Known for it’s challenging terrain Val d’Isere provides just as well for first-timers and beginners. The beginner area is up high on the mountain at 2560m giving a sense of serious altitude that most learning slopes can’t match. NUCO are lucky to have grown for Val d’Isere routes and can’t wait to spread that love to everyone we can.

Doubling up on snow

Each resort in the Espace Killy has it’s own glacier. That means that even in the poorest snow conditions you should still be able to find some powder to track.

Val d’Isere sits in a unique place in the Tarentaise valley, such that it captures the snow better than anywhere else. So despite it being considerably lower than Val Thorens at resort level, it still gets just as much snow and has loads of trees to play in, which is lacking in the 3 Valleys due to the altitude.

Your lift pass covers the whole area so you have the whole of Tignes to have a go at as well, so even the most hardcore of skiers will struggle to cover all of it in a week!

 

 

Places to Stay

There is a bit of a stigma around Val d’Isere of being an overly expensive resort, we’re giving this rumour the boot. Sure, we can find you a budget residence that provides just the necessities you require, but that’s not all we mean. Even if you’re looking for an accommodation that gives you more comfort, or maybe you want to go the whole way and get spa facilities too. We know where to look to make sure you’ve got a place to stay that doesn’t break the bank. A lot of buildings require a bit of a walk to the lifts but there are regular shuttle buses to keep the ski-boot trekking to a minimum.

Best bits of Val d'Isere

Hit the 4 corners of the Espace Killy

The 300km of piste that interlink the resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes have countless hidden gems to be discovered. So maximise your chances of finding something no ones seen before by stretching the ski area to it’s limits! Looking at the piste map the four corners are La Fornet & the Val d’Isere Glacier to the left and Les-Brévières & the Grande Motte Glacier on the Tignes side. Once you’ve made it to each of these points you can really say you’ve skied the Espace Killy. Do it all in one day and you’re super human!

Become an Olympian

The Face de Bellevarde was host to the Olympic downhill way back in 1992. One of the more challenging black in the resort what better way to test your mettle than by challenging yourself to getting down Le Face just at so many professional skiers have done in the past, though you might not match their speeds you’ll certainly get the same sense of accomplishment if you emerge unscathed.

Discover the Lost Valley

Despite not being quite as much of a secret as it’s name might suggest after Léo Taillefer flew down it in 2015 winning GoPro Line of the Winter, “Vallee Perdue” is Val d’Isere’s worst kept secret. Easily accessed from just below the Tommeuses chairlift you dip off the edge of pisted terrain to find yourself in what feels like a gully all of your own. At points this canyon can get very narrow so you’ll want to take it slow. It spits you out just above La Daille, so it may be a great time to grab a lunch break!
