Skiing in Val d'Isere

Val d’Isere is linked to Tignes to form one of the great ski domains in the world. Tignes-Val d’Isere has about 300km of ski slopes, 75 lifts and 150 separate runs lifts. Although the accent is on strong intermediates and advanced skiers, there is skiing for everyone, no matter what their standard.

Val d’Isere Ski Area Overview

There are two glaciers in the Tignes-Val d’Isere ski area: one in Val d’Isere above the Col de l’Iseran called Pissaillas, and La Grande Motte in Tignes. The vertical drop from the top of the Grande Motte down to the lowest village is over 1,900 metres. There are two snowparks and for those who like Cross Country or Nordic skiing there are nearly 50km of trails.

Val d’Isere’s vast ski domain is linked not only by its ski slopes and lifts, but also its superb free shuttle bus system that services the three sectors making up the ski resort, and links the main village with its outlying suburbs and hamlets, during the day and night.

Beginner Skiing in Val d’Isere

Val d’Isere’s beginner skiing starts with the free nursery slopes close to the main village and at La Daille. However there is a much larger Ski Tranquille beginner zone at high altitude at Rocher de Bellevard, composed of easy green and blue runs.

Although psychologically Val d’Isere is not the ideal beginners’ resort, if you can make it here you can make it anywhere. 

There are free nursery slopes and lifts near the centre of the resort and at La Daille for absolute beginners. From these novices progress onto the green runs on the far side of the Rocher De Bellevarde which benefit from high altitude snow conditions.

If you are a total beginner out advice is to start with the Grand Pre green from the Grand Pre chair off the Rocher Du Charvet. It is a large, wide, and easy run for beginners and you will be tackling it from the top of the mountain – not many beginners can boast that.  

The Mont Blanc green is also very easy and flat, but that is where much of the good news ends.

The Genepy green is largely easy, but can occasionally develop moguls. It is a good spot for a picnic lunch if meeting up with other more experienced skiers in a group.

The Borsat green is good for beginners who have developed a little confidence, as there is an opportunity to schuss at the end as you come into the Borsat chair. The Borsat chair can become very cold, so it is not ideal for small children.

The best green run in the whole of the Espace Killy is undoubtedly the Verte, a huge, open piste at the top, but it gets narrow the further you go down, especially as you go past the Folie Douce. The Verte goes all the way down to La Daille, so is a great run to get under your belt as you begin to improve.

Apart from good village nursery slopes, which are free, Solaise is the only other gateway to some gentle ski slopes.

The Madeleine, Datcha and Glacier lifts offer a small selection of runs, though downloading by ski lift back to the valley floor is pretty essential to avoid tougher slopes lower down at the end of the day.

It is generally recognised that Val d’Isere’s gradings err on the degree of difficulty. It is often said that a blue piste in Val d’Isere might well be a red piste in other resorts.

That said, there are a few blues that we feel are accessible to skiers who can handle the Verte green. The Col de l’Iseran runs are, by and large, wide and pretty easy, especially if conditions are good at the top of the glacier. And because they are quite a way from the resort village, these ski slopes tend to be uncrowded too.

The Aiguille Pers is wide, easy and often empty, the Pont Abatte blue under the Vallon telecabin is very flat while the Pyramides blue is fairly easy also. The Col blue is also worth a look but at one point has a very fast and steep section, which may create panic among those not quite up to speed.

Intermediate Skiing in Val d’Isere

Intermediate skiers in Val d’Isere will discover there is almost no end to the skiing permutations they can enjoy. Most of the runs in the Tignes-Val d’Isere ski area are reds and blues, making it a superb playground for intermediates.

Intermediates will discover there is almost no end to the skiing permutations they can enjoy in Val d’Isere, although some ski runs are under-graded.

Viewed in its entirety, the Tignes Val d’Isere ski area offers huge potential for big kilometre skiing for intermediates, with long ski runs, fast lifts and typically good snow conditions. There are not many other places where you can ski as much distance, if you want to. It is intermediate heaven.

Col De l’Iseran

For instance, in the Col de I’Iseran sector there are a several blue runs such as Aiguille Pers, Montets, Col, Pont Abbatte and Pyramides blues that are pretty easy for intermediate skiers. That said, Mangard is almost certainly a red piste, and not blue as delineated, and Signal is a red run that really should be classified as a black run. It is steep, narrow, and gets very icy.

Our favourites in the L’Iseran sector include the Rocher red, which is easy for its grading, although boarders will have to scramble at the end as it is quite flat.

The Moraine and Cascade reds are good for cruising and the Pre-Chemin blue, which is a lovely gully that was ultimately more fun that the parallel runs of Col and Pont Abbatte, is the best in the sector.


Across the piste map the Solaise, where the women racers compete in major events, has an extensive network of excellent middle-order ski runs, although the famous bumps can be quite a handful for anyone but strong intermediates or advanced skiers.

From the Solaise side of the ski area you can drop into the Iseran valley on the new Lessieres Express chairlift and ski down to Le Fornet.

The network of blues and reds at Solaise are well worth the trip up the Solaise Express in the morning.

Timid intermediate skiers will relish the Col de la Madeleine blue, which is good for getting the confidence up, as is the Leissieres blue. The Glacier blue is great for cruising and for taking in the extraordinary view.

Improving intermediates will love the long Arcelle red down into Le Manchet. If you are looking for tree runs the Germain Mattis red snakes through the forest and takes you back down to Le Laisinant. Piste L is the blue alternative.

Fourche is down as a blue piste, but used to be a red and is slightly steeper than Col de la Madeleine, while the St Jacques blue from the top of the Glacier chairlift could also be classed as a red by some.


Rocher De Bellevarde is configured such that on one side you have mainly testing pistes that take you down back down to Val d’Isere. On the other you have a choice of challenging intermediate pistes that steer towards the La Folie Douce bar and La Daille.

If you are a timid intermediate do not for a moment be beguiled by the Santons blue at the end of the day, which is the only blue our of a sea of black runs that feeds the return to Val d’Isere.

Whoever categorised this run as an intermediate piste needs their head examined. It is almost permanently icy, and is packed with intermediates at the end of the day trying to snake their way back down – better always to have a vin chaud at the top and get the Olympique cable car back down.

On the other side there are four pistes for intermediates that is dominated by the Coupe Du Monde <<OK>> red. It takes you past the Folie Douce, has wonderful views and provides thrills and spills all the way down to La Daille.

The Orange red provides nice tree-lined sections, and while it is fairly steep and icy in patches it is wide and provides a good test for improving intermediates.

The Diebold and “3j” blues are much the same – wide blues on which intermediates can really go fast, without much fear things can go wrong.

Advanced & Expert Skiing in Val d’Isere

Val d’Isere and Tignes are famous for their off-piste freeride skiing But there are challenging black runs too,

It’s the quality, not the quantity of black runs that makes Val D’Isere stand out. Many of the runs are long, so be prepared to be be locked in their embrace for hundreds of metres, unless a blue or red crosses them on their way down the mountain. Several of them are now classified as Naturides, or dotted black runs. These are patrolled and marked, but not groomed in any way. Following a huge dump of snow, they can be sublime but be warned: as more and more people ski them, and less and less powdery snow remains, moguls and ice build up.

Just above the resort, and descending into it’s centre, is Val d@isere’s most famous black run: La Face De Bellevarde (or ‘Face’ for short).  It faces east and is normally groomed every night so is particularly enjoyable mid-morning when it’s had a bit of sun on it and is also at its least crowded. Sure, it is steep, but without ice and moguls, strong intermediates can make their way down without much problem. But late in the afternoon, when the fresh snow has been scraped off leaving long icy patches, moguls have started to build up, and the run is crowded with skiers and boarders taking the shortest route home (some of whom will have never skied a black before), Face becomes a much more serious challenge. And as it’s one of the longest runs in the Espace Killy, the pain goes on, and on, and on. Luckily about half way down you have the option of swallowing your pride and switching over to the gentler Joseray red.

If Face has given you a taste for World Cup runs, Val D’Isere has another one to offer up. Still in the Bellevarde sector, but this time descending into La Daille, is the ‘OK Coupe du Monde’ . It’s classified as a red, but it’s steep one. It is more tree-lined than Face (making it a favourite spot in poor visibility) but just like Face, it’s at its best mid-morning, when very few people choose to ski it, and at it’s worst in the late afternoon when it’s a popular route home. 

Also in the Rocher De Bellevarde area is the Epaule du Charvet, another black run that provides an even sharper, sterner challenge than La Face. The Epaule feeds into the Santos red, so you can get some respite from its giant moguls before you reach the resort. There is a lovely little restaurant at the bottom from which you can watch others similarly trying to battle through.

The next black on our list is Foret. It’s in the Iseran sector above Le Fornet. In our view it is the toughest ‘on-piste’ challenge in the resort, although as it is a now a dotted black ‘Naturide’, it’s a piste only in the sense that it is marked and patrolled. Large moguls build up, and it’s also steep and very narrow in places, so it really is for excellent skiers only – you have been warned! Again, if you get to the bottom in one piece you can stop at the cafe below the Fornet cable car and watch others come a cropper whilst sipping your hard-earned drink.

In the Solaise sector, two black runs come off the Plan red. Piste S is a dotted black naturide. Unless you are blessed with virgin snow, or you enjoy steep icy moguls, it is more pleasurable to take the Rhone-Alpes which is another black run going in roughly the same direction, which cuts a narrow slice through the forest on its way down to Val d’Isere.

Also in Solaise is the Marmottons dotted-black Naturide off the Manchet Express chair. This can provide a host of opportunities and you can take whichever way down you like. In powder, there are few better black runs in resort. But ski it quickly after a snowfall, because it”s West-facing and gets a lot of afternoon and early evening sun, so the fresh powder often turns into crud, slush or ice within 24 hours.

The Boarder run off the Grand Pre lift on the Rocher du Charvet is reserved for boarders, but there are areas just off to the side that skiers can descend on.

Advanced skiers and boarders returning to Val D’Isere after a long gap should note that it has removed the ‘3000’ or ‘Tunnel’ black piste which was near the Leissieres chair, so don’t go looking for it.

All advanced skiers should also test thesmelves on the challenges posed by Val D’Isere’s red runs. Many would be graded black in other resorts. All the red runs already mentioned have steep sections, but perhaps the toughest are Signal (Isere sector) and Cugnai (Solaise).

Then of course, there are the black runs in Tignes, of which some of the most challenging are the runs leading down to Tignes from Val D’Isere via the Tomeuses lift, such as Campanules, Envers de Campanules, Trolles and Paquerettes.

Finally there are plenty of opportunities for Val D’Isere’s advanced skiers to sample some powder skiing in relative safety by trying some of the ungroomed snow very close to the pistes. There is always some extra risk if you go outside the confines of the piste markers, particularly if you are on a glacier, but thousands of skiers do this every year in Val D’Isere without encountering any harm. If you join them, make sure you’re not alone and you only ‘ski what you can see’, and ski where you can also be easily seen from a lift or a piste. Good areas for this between-the-piste skiing include Cugnai and Signal (these both have much longer and more serious itineraries ‘off the back’ but their front faces have pwoder skiing too), the Col De la Madeline blue in Solaise, the area around the Cascade red on the Glacier du Pissaillas (but be aware of the extra danger here posed by crevasses), the area between the Pyramides and Vallon lift above Le Fornet, and between the Tommeuses and Mont Blanc lifts in Bellevarde.

Boarding & Freestyle in Val d’Isere 

Snowboarders rave about Val d’Isère as there are very few drag lifts and vast areas on- and off-piste to explore, and plenty of guides available to enable you to do so safely and get the best of it.

Boarders rave about Val d’Isere and rightly so, as there are very few drag lifts and vast areas of on and off-piste slopes to exploit. Ever since the great Jean-Claude endorsed snowboarding himself, the ski area has became a Mecca for snowboarders. There are one or two pinch points on the mountain, where skiers and boarders come into conflict but overall the vast space available, particularly for boarders ensures that the two snowsports live in harmony.

There are two snowparks in the Espace Killy: the one in Val d’Isère is above La Daille, close to the Mont Blanc chairlift. The ESF’s Snowboard Club organises ‘initiation’ and improvement classes, private lessons and group lessons for competition level and class 3. There are a number of specialist snowboard shops and schools in the resort village.

The variety of jumps and rails makes Val d’Isere a great place for park novices to test out the park. Jumps are marked according to ability, so beginners know which to steer clear of and which they can hop over without any nasty surprises.

Runs for intermediate boarders to skip due to flat parts that require scooting include: the Cema green and Rocher red in L’Iseran and the Lessieres blue, the Traversee du Laisinant blue, and the Santons blue all in Solaise.

Off-Piste Skiing & Freeriding in Val d’Isere 

Val d’Isere’s off-piste skiing is justifiably famous and all three of its sectors offer challenges to skiers and freeriders, both above and below the treeline. The higher, open bowl backcountry skiing in neighbouring Tignes is also easily reached.

Off-Piste in Val d'Isere 660x260

Off-Piste in Isere 

Above Le Fornet, probably the most famous off-piste area is Les Grands Vallons (or just “Vallons”) reached by going off the back from the top of the Signal drag lift. Each season thousands of skiers explore the area without coming to grief, but there are cliffs here and it’s not immune to avalanches, so unless you know what you’re doing, and can see what you’re doing, take a guide. It’s a huge area, so you can do it several times in the same day, taking a different line each time. If you cut left early you can reach the bottom of Pyramides lift and repeat the circuit quickly, but you will miss out on some of the best bits. If instead you keep on descending, make sure you keep the Pont St Charles on your right and keep an eye out for the corner of the blue piste down below you on your left. You can join it just above the mountain restaurant and ski into Le Fornet, saving yourself a long walk or push at the end. 

Lower down and in between Le Fornet and Le Laisinan is the Lievre Blanc, which is sometimes shown on piste maps. It needs good snow but not too much of it because it’s avalanche-prone.

Higher up in the Isere sector are the Pays Desert and Col Pers runs, both reached from the the Montet T bar, the highest point of Val D’Isere’s ski area. At the top of the lift turn right for Pays Desert and keep turning right in a gentle curve until you see the bottom of the Pays Deserts lift. It’s mostly easy off-piste skiing but there are some couloirs on your right that you can include to spice it up. The main risk, however comes from crevasses on the glacier.

The Col Pers run is more challenging. At the top of Montets lift turn left, then take the long traverse out to skiers’ right, which, with some side-stepping up the mountain and a few pushes, will take you over the Col. The entry point into the valley below is quite steep and often moguled. The principal danger however is lower down because the natural fall line takes you into the Gorges de Malpasset. In the right conditions, skiing through the gorges is a lovely way to end the itinerary, but in the wrong conditions it can be a death trap, easy to ski into but impossible to either walk or ski out of. Therefore hire a guide who can advise whether the gorges are skiable by someone of your standard on that particular day, and who can also show you routes that avoid them (most require a short uphill climb).

Off-Piste in Solaise 

In the Solaise sector the main draw is Cugnai, reached by going off the back of the eponymous lift. This opens up a vast semi-circular bowl: the far side, reached by a long and sometimes tricky traverse, is the most North-facing and usually has the best snow. Keep going down the mountain, gently curving to skiers’ right and you encounter first a refuge (only open from March onwards, but an excellent spot to stop for a drink and a snack, or when it’s closed, for a picnic) and eventually the Manchet lift. There is also offpiste on Solaise between the top half of the Laisinant lift and Piste L, and a Naturide area around the Manchet lift.

Off-Piste in Bellevarde

In the Bellevarde sector, Banane is featured as one of our top extreme off-piste descents in the Alps. Cairn and La Spatule also have excellent off-piste routes. All are best explored with a guide. The Tour du Chavret is a favourite of many guides. It’s accessed from the Grand Pre lift and takes you all the way back into town unless you take the Manchet lift on the way. The main route is quite easy, but there are several steeper variants. The area between the Mont Blanc and Tomeusses lifts can resemble a giant off-piste playground. Many of the descents eventually run into the Vallee Perdue which brings you back to La Daille.

Off-Piste in Tignes 

There are also several ways to ski from Val d’Isere into Tignes off-piste. Micky’s Ears, reached from the top of Tommeuses, is desrvedly famous – see the Tignes Off-Piste section for details. A simpler alternative is to cross over at the Borsat Express. At the top of the lift, hike up to the top of the ridge on the well-trodden path, and then walk for 5 minutes to your left. If conditions are right, ski down on the Tignes side. Snow cover at the top can be thin, usually because of wind rather than sunshine, and there are some rocks to look out for, so be careful. Eventually you will join the Blue Genepy run that swings in from the left and takes you into Val Claret with the option of some more off-piste on the other side of the run.

To get the most out of the off-piste in Val d’Isere, and to do so safely, we strongly recommend you hire a local guide. There are plenty available and recommended guiding companies can be found in Val d’Isere Ski Schools & Guiding >

Mountain Restaurants in Val d’Isere

The good slopeside lunch is Val d’Isere’s one weakness – there are some very good mountain restaurants above the ski resort, but not enough in such a vast ski area. If you plan your day carefully and reserve your table in advance, however, it is possible to eat and drink well on the mountain.

With the convenience and lift speed in Val D’Isere, many prefer to go back down to village level, where there is a plethora of excellent eating options. For instance, The Bar des Sports in the Brussels square is one of the liveliest venues for good honest French food at reasonable prices. On a white day, you will have to fight for a table there. The various self-service restaurants on the mountainside are variable in quality and a few are downright disappointing – Italy, this is not. Pick and choose your mountain restaurants carefully, however, and you will get a decent lunch although whether you feel what you paid for it is value is another matter entirely. 


L’Edelweiss was built for the 2003/04 season and for over a decade now has been pumping out some of the best food on the mountain. It specialises in food from the south west of France. The restaurant has sumptuous views over the forest in to Val d’Isere and is an excellent spot to enjoy lunch after skiing though the woods after a decent dump of snow. There is a lovely terrace overlooking the Mangard blue at the far end of the Col de l’Iseran sector. The menu is short but well formed food and often includes the gout-inducing monster Burger Landais, filled with duck breast and foie gras. Veal with morelle mushrooms was a particular favourite of our party, while starters remain pricey but delicious, much like the plates of pasta. For those on a budget, the set meal deals are well worth investigating. Tel: +33 6 10 28 70 64 | Web:


A modern restaurant located at the top of the Fornet gondola and at the bottom of the Pyramides chairlift and Vallon gondola. The Signal has a ground level self-service restaurant with trendy lighting and modern art, whereas upstairs the restaurant concentrates more on gastronomy. The Signal is made out of stripped wood, and there are large windows that provide soaring views down the valley. In the self-service restaurant you can get mainly pasta with a very small selection of desserts – the tarte maison is the safe bet. Upstairs is a thoroughly different proposition with foie gras, snails, and rabbit on a menu that is dominated by fresh seafood such as scallops with risotto, jugged salmon, pike, crayfish and tuna. Signal has an excellent wine list. Tel: +33 4 79 06 03 38 | Email:  [email protected] | Web:

La Cascade

The Cascade is a self-service restaurant at the Col D’Iseran located at the foot of the Cascade chairlift. It is a clean, efficient and pleasing place to eat, and offers good value for money in an expensive resort. It certainly lacks charm, but the food is decent with the likes of trout in almonds for £14 highlighting you can steer away from the usual Savoyarde food within a budget. There is a good fireplace and terrace. The Cascade for a pit stop if you have done the glacier early in the morning. Tel: +33 4 58 00 11 54

La Datcha

La Datcha is based at the foot of the Glacier chairlift and has easy access to the L’Ouillette draglift. You can walk in under ten minutes from the Solaise chairflift and Solaise Express so it is a good place to meet for mixed groups, although with the nearby Yacht Club de L’Ouillette much the better destination we see little reason coming here. When we visited La Datcha had added a small outdoor snack bar that had a pavilion around it for warmth called l’Igloo. La Datcha has a decent selection of salads, but sticks mainly to the Savoyarde template with Jambonneau, the knuckle of a pork leg, the most expensive dish on the menu at around €20. The Spaghetti Bolognese was solid. It has a small wine selection, but is cheap enough. Tel: +33 4 79 06 21 14

Yacht Club de L’Ouillette

What a find. The Yacht Club at the foot of the Madeleine chairlift is named as such because it sits on the frozen lake and is open for business around it during July and August. It is a unique restaurant that does everything brilliantly. Inside the restaurant and snack bar provide a very interesting selection, most of which are good value for money also. The self-service restaurant has an astonishing selection of quiches and pies, and large pieces of rustic bread dolloped with two large rounds of goats cheese, or Beaufort and ham, or any topping you might think of. They also do plain sandwiches for those on a shoe-string. In good weather their vast decking overlooking the frozen lake stages a barbecue that gives those on the decking terrace outside options from delicious and spicy Merguez sausages for €15 to beef fillet in marinade for €23. With a large selection of desserts, a decent wine list and one of the best hot chocolates on the mountain the Yacht Club is worth at least one stop throughout your week away. Add in that Madame Chevallot, the Val d’Isere institution patissiere, provides the pastries and the cool sofas and colourful tables make this a place definitely worth a visit. Tel: +33 4 79 41 94 74

Le Triffollet

On the way down to La Daille on the Coupe Du Monde <OK> Red lies Le Triffollet, a large rustic bar, pizzeria and restaurant. It has a decent terrace and good pizzas, and provides a solid standard in the contest for the best Plat Du Jour in the Espace Killy. But halfway between the maddening fun of La Folie Douce, and the quiet and relaxed modernism of Les Tufs in La Daille it seems Le Triffollet is better than neither. Still, the pastries are home made and the win list is strong, so you cannot really argue with that. Tel: +33 4 79 41 96 99

La Belvarde

As far as location is concerned, La Bellevarde holds pride of place at 2,800 metres. It is nestled in between the mythical Face De Bellevarde black and the Coupe du Monde <<OK>> red. It tries desperately hard to live up to its billing, too. There is a lovely open fireplace, the experimental food is presented beautifully, and if you want to eat outside there is a lovely terrace. Worth a visit. Tel: +33 4 79 06 05 76 | Email: [email protected] | Web:

Le Clochetons

Set back at the base of the fearsome Epaule Du Charvet black and the Santons blue Le Clochetons is a delightful spot to stop for lunch. It has a simple but very effective view down the Le Manchet valley and a pretty river trickles past, even in January. It is an idyllic setting, and they are open with a pool in summer. The only drawback really is that you have to pole through town along the Santons blue after lunch – not what you want after three courses. Make sure in good weather you reserve one of the few tables on the outside upstairs terrace – it’s perfect for watching skiers and boarders struggle past and clapping those who have braved the Epaule du Chravet black. Le Clochetons does not specialise in much, but it does everything very well, from pasta, Savoyarde specialities, to a children’s menu. The strong point has to be the grilled meats, all of which are cooked on a vine grill – the Cote de Boeuf is fair value. They also have the largest bottle of Ginepi, the mountain spirit, you have ever seen!  Also does good Spanish charcuterie. Le Clochetons has a large terrace facing down the Le Manchet valley for drinking and sitting lazily in deck chairs. Tel: +33 4 79 41 13 11 | Email: [email protected]

Tete De Solaise

At the top of the Solaise Express this is for those who cannot be bothered to seek out something else. Good pizzas and the self-service and restaurant lean heavily towards the Savoyarde. The restaurant adds a little bit extra and the Tournedos Rossini we had for €40 was a memorable dish, as was the duck fillet hamburger. A pop-up champagne bar outside on the terrace was also a great addition, but may not be there in subsequent seasons. Tel: +33 6 33 12 49 03 | Web:

Les Tufs

Les Tufs is one of the best places to lunch in Val d’Isere. It is perfectly located at the bottom of the slopes in La Daille and has a terrace that captures the sun to die for. It is modern in appearance but does not forget the old fashioned appeal of open-faced stone and a fireplace. Les Tufs does not produce spectacular food, but does the simple things very well. Les Tufs goes through the usual gamut of salads, pastas and pizzas but does go off-piste with things like half a roast chicken with salad and chips. With a glass of excellent house wine on top, that is a satisfying lunch. There have been grumbles about poor service to many of our team but we have yet to experience it. Les Tufs is also open to eat at night, so if lunch turns into dinner and you are still there, there is a private shuttle service on request. Tel: +33 4 79 06 25 01 | Email: [email protected] | Web:

La Fruitiere

Set in the Folie Douce compex La Fruitiere is one of Val d’Isere’s best mountain restaurants. It is not cheap, mind you, but the setting is cool and you can just flop out and dance it all off at La Folie Douce after 3pm. The menu is based on Savoyarde ingredients, but that is about it. There is a good choice of fish and meat and the British will be delighted to get their hands on a T-Bone steak. There is the usual selection of pastas and soups, although snail soup catches our eye every time we stop, and there is a huge puddings menu. As a former dairy, the cheese board is the best on the mountain. Booking is strongly recommended.  Tel: +33 4 79 06 07 17 | Web:
