Beginners Guide To Skiing In Val D'Isere

Jun 24, 2008
If there was a trip, I like to do during the winter months, as way of dealing with the winter blues it would be skiing. Ski holidays are something that people love to do almost year in and year out. Some people re-visit a specific destination due to their experiences previously. One of the most popular destinations is Val d'Isere. Skiing in Val d'Isere offers people the opportunity ski down slopes tailored for beginners, children, intermediate or advanced level skiers.

For beginners looking to go skiing in Val d'Isere can accelerate their ski learning skills by practising down the Nursery slopes, whilst taking lessons from your coach. This is a perfect way to enjoy learning to ski, whilst also taking a good tour around the mountains of Val d'Isere. If you were looking for a bit of adventure, it would be a good idea to start with the nursery slope, working your way towards the harder slopes for intermediate skiers.

The most popular Olympic downhill run leads onto the Val d'Isere village. This narrows out as you approach the village into an almost V-shape. This ski run is better suited to intermediate and advanced level skiers and is very crowded at closing times. Also at the bottom of the mountain is where the best apres ski party in France is held. Many people enjoy taking part in this celebration, meeting other skiers and enjoying fine dining.

Skiing is a very active and physical form of sport to take part in on holiday. Val d'Isere is an ideal location for people new to the experiences of skiing, especially if they have never been skiing previously. Some of the main attractions of Val d'Isere is not just skiing, but also a vast array of small entertainments. These include bars, restaurants, treks around the village and plenty of nightclubs for young adults.

Even though skiing in Val d'Isere is relatively popular, with varied runs and good learning opportunities, it is still a top choice for enjoying some of its cosmopolitan areas. Bars such as the Moris Bar, provide live music and entertainment. The Pacific is a popular choice for watching live sports and The Underground is a good place for some French style partying. There are also historical sites for people looking for a bit of a cultural adventure, such as the Le Fornet, which has an ancient stone bridge above the river. Here you can also view the ancient stone chalets.

Val d'Isere has around 10,000 hectares of skiing terrain, three glaciers and skiing can go up to around 3,550 km. This allows skiers to find new adventures all the time, regardless of how long they have been staying on this resort. Ski fans are also able to see the competitions which take place at the terrain parks, so there is more scope for taking skiing to a new level.
