The Val D’Isere Ski Resort is situated among the greatest concentration of internationally recognized ski resorts in the world—the Tarentaise Valley. Many people opt for one of several Val D’Isere packages that grant you access to nearby ski areas along with the mountains at Val D’Isere and Tignes.

The two most notable neighboring ski areas are Paradinski, which comprises Les Arcs and La Plagne, and Les Trois Vallees, which are Courchevel, Val Thorens, and Meribel. You cannot go wrong with any ski vacation that you plan to this region of France.

But before even venturing into all of the added features and amenities of the Val D’Isere Ski Resort, true ski and snowboard and enthusiasts will want to know what to expect from the slopes. The top elevations at both Val D’Isere and Tignes reach beyond 11,000 feet. The vertical drop at Tignes (6,253 feet) gets slightly out shadowed by that of Val D’Isere (6,726 feet).

The most popular Val D’Isere accommodations are the slope-side chalets. They are beautifully blended into the landscape of the picturesque alpine village.
