Val d'Isère is a resort that all strong skiers aspire to visit and is best suited to intermediates and advanced skiers. Together with neighbouring Tignes, Val d'Isère forms the gateway to a wealth of demanding red and black pistes and some of the best and easily lift-accessed off-piste to be found anywhere in the Alps. However, Hotel Christiania is a great option for beginners who can access the nursery slopes which are just a short walk away from the hotel.
Snow reliability is high and the season lasts until the first weekend of May. There are plenty of ski schools and all cater for skiing and non-skiing children aged three and over. Billabong Snowboard School, meanwhile, instructs young snowboarders aged seven years and over. Other activities include dog-sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, quad-bikes, all-terrain karts, paragliding and microlight trips. Val d'Isère's fun-loving crowd will find the après-ski here to be as lively as the skiing, with entertainment ranging from bustling bars to discos.
Après-ski children’s activities, for 4 to 10-year-olds, during the school holidays and early meal sittings for families are available on request.
Spa & Wellness
Open every day, the spa offers an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a modest fitness area while an excellent range of massage and beauty therapies are available, including the exclusive Sothys Cosmetics beauty treatments.
The concierge team at Elegant Resorts would be delighted to assist with arrangements for your next luxury ski holiday, including pre-booking equipment and kindergarten places. Lift passes for certain resorts can be booked by us prior to travel, but can also be purchased upon arrival. We strongly recommend securing ski or snowboard tuition (if required) before you travel, whether individual or group lessons are needed. To make the most of the ski school experience, it is essential that pupils are of the same ability-level – otherwise, separate instructors will be required. Please let your Travel Consultant know you wish to have lessons when you make your holiday booking, as they would be pleased to advise you.
