"We have been skiing in Val for the last 30 years, the domaine improves constantly. The skiing area is catered to all levels including lots of off pistes. All well maintained. You ski up in the morning and do not come down until the end of the day as the choice is endless. The resort is high enough to always have snow. General atmosphere is friendly. You can enjoy a nice romantic dinner or party hard."
"After a week in Val D Isere you dont think to go for ski/snowboard elsewere . The place is fantastic. The only con is that is expensive."
"I love Val D'Isere, the apres ski scene is the best in France and people really do board hard and party harder. That said I think families get on pretty well here also. Food is fairly standard on the mountain but some really great French food in the village. Awesome links to Tignes which gives you more than enough challenging terrain to explore in a week. Great back country and generally great snow both times I have been. Dicks Team Bar and the Foile Duce are must do's for any visit to Val D'Isere. Would definitely have no reservations about saying Val D'Isere deserves its reputation on all fronts."
