In the valley of Tarantaise at the entrance of the Vanoise-National Park, 30 km from Bourg St. Maurice you’ll find Val d’Isere. Formerly a small mountain village, today it is an internationally famous summer and winter holiday resort. Together with Tignes, Val d’Isere has a skiing area which is huge and varied, known as the “Espace Killy”.

With more than 1000 hectares of the most varied marked ski runs imaginable, and a remarkable 10,000 hectares of off-piste, much of it is easily accessible from the lift system. It’s one of the most exhilarating ski areas in the world. Indeed, it is not difficult to make out a case for Val d’Isère and its neighbour being among a handful of the world’s finest ski resorts – some would even say the finest. Yet such high quality skiing comes at a price: Val is one of the more expensive places in the Alps for a winter holiday.
Access is via motorway up to Albertville, from there on the express street RN 90 to Moutiers (60 km), Bourg St. Maurice (30 km) and on the D 902 up to Val d’Isere. Railway station: TGV up to Bourg St. Maurice, from there on bus connection or a taxi. Parking, covered or uncovered is necessary at extra charge. Free parking in La Daille.
