Dust off your thermals and slap on your salopettes, it’s time to book this year’s ski trip. Val d’Isere offers some of the world’s most exciting lift-serviced slopes combined with the neighbouring resort of Tignes. The twinkling alpine village has several world-class facilities which draw in a legion of Brits and Europeans year after year. Yet, it’s the slopes that make Val-d’Isère a must visit resort with over 300 kilometres of prepared pistes plus exciting off-piste routes to discover. The resort is situated at 1,850m and is one of Europe’s highest resorts making it suitable for all abilities from beginners to powder hounds. Val d’Isère is a winning choice, as skiers move uphill in search of snow this year.
VIP SKI is introducing two brand new chalets to VIP SKI’s piste side Hammeau be Bellvarde collection for those keen skiers already thinking about a ski chalet holiday for this winter.
