Espace Killy Ski Area
The legendary ski area of Espace Killy has over 300kms of marked piste and endless off-piste options – some of the most varied and exciting skiing you can find! The ski area links the two resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes.
Val d’Isere sits at approximately 1800 metres and is a truly modern alpine village. The pretty old town of snow filled streets and Savoyard stone buildings is home to the original village church built in 1664. The resort centre is lively and vibrant, with shops, restaurants and bars to suit any budget and taste, lining the wide, spacious main-street.
Every season, during summer and winter, Val d’Isere hosts all sorts of events – from Savoyard festivals or fayres show-casing local produce such as cheeses, cured meats or lace. International sporting events like the Tour de France and the World Ski Championships often stage an event here. Music festivals are often hosted during the summer and winter 2010 welcomes a stage of the World Snow Polo Masters Series!
The villages of Tignes are a little further down the valley towards Bourg St Maurice. Just like Val d’Isere, the ski area boasts wide, cruisey red runs, snow-parks for those who want to play and show off their tricks and quieter beginner areas where you can find your “skis” and build confidence – and of course immense off-piste itineraries, so much space you are bound to find untracked snow!
The lively resort centre is a real haven for those looking for energetic après-ski and night-life – there are lots of bars, café’s, restaurants and night-clubs to entertain until the early hours. During the day-time there is an equal abundance of activity – the resort is just as regarded as a summer resort as it is a winter snow sports centre. You will find a superb 18-hole golf course, organised activities on the lake, skiing on the glacier, beach volleyball and football and the usual mountain biking, walking and horse-riding.
