Ski Training in Val d’Isère

World-famous ski runs, epic off-piste, high-altitude terrain, and impressive snow conditions. What’s not to love? 

Val d’Isère is a haven for advanced skiers. If you want to push yourself to become a more rounded skier on terrain that will keep challenging you, Val d’Isère is the resort for you. It does also have a  number of beginner areas as well as plenty of blues to provide excellent terrain for teaching and practicing.

Val d’Isère has three main areas: Val d’Isere Centre (1850m), Le Fournet and La Daille. La Daille offers value for money when looking for accommodation and is ideally located in between Val d’Isère and Tignes. In contrast, Le Fournet is a quaint village just after the main town of Val d’Isère with typical wooden chalets. The area of Le Fournet is the gateway to some of the best off-piste in Val d’Isère, making it an ideal base for a winter season.

On the Slopes

There are three beginner areas that will be used to practice teaching, and nailing those snowplows ready for your exams. The three designated areas are in the center of the resort, one in La Daille and up the top of Solaise. You’ll get to know them well, as they are a great place to practice.

In the mornings, we like to warm up on the blues around Solaise and the Col d’Iseran from the top of le Fournet. It’s a great space to warm up your legs and get away from the crowds first thing.

  • 14 green runs
  • 29 blue runs
  • 26 red runs
  • 11 black Runs

La Face is a World famous ski run that is not for the faint of heart, but definitely worth a go. It’s steep and gnarly so make sure your legs are warmed up before tackling it!

For some off-piste adventures, head to Le Fournet. The terrain is incredible, and there’s so much to explore. So grab your mentor, pack your avalanche backpack and a flask of tea and you’re in for a great day.
