Val d'Isere Ski Resort Guide

About the Resort

This is one of the more famous mega resorts. The look of the resort is a bit patchy. Some of the accommodation has gone through a period of refurbishment but parts of the resort are still hideous. There are no traffic free zones which does mean that the centre of the resort suffers from not being totaly predestrianised. The main lift stations are linked by a free shuttle bus service.
