Words can not do the Espace Killy justice. Its reputation as being a snow-sure high altitude haven for experienced skiers is well deserved. It is also very accurate. Very few other resorts in the world offer a variety of terrain and runs that can match it.
Whatever the weather, whatever the conditions, there is somewhere to ski.
When the storms roll in, our team will take you into the tree runs that litter the lower half of the resort. From Tignes les Brevierres right up to Le fornet in Val d’Isere then options are endless. Our personal favourite runs include “White Rabbit” with its well-spaced trees, small drops and natural kickers and “Gendarme”, which requires detailed local knowledge as you work your way through a small break in a band of cliffs before hitting a series of avalanche barriers that make perfect drops and finally lead you out into a steep area with well-spaced trees. You will have plenty of time to decide which is your favourite.
As the storms clear and we can head higher out of the trees, the team will be able to show you the on and off-piste runs that really put the Espace Killy on the map. The women’s world cup downhill run of OK Orange is possibly one of the world’s best pistes. As it winds its way down from the top of the Solaise, there are plenty of rollers, and flowing corners are perfect for high speed long turns.
Away from the crowds and marked runs, the options are endless. Pisteurs, Mickeys Ears and Table are all famous must ski off-piste descents, but these will feel like the norm by the end of the season.
