The mountain differently! The benefits of the mountain in winter

Val d’Isère is not only about skiing, far from it and we are going to show you that!

Our charming village and its activities will also seduce you, especially if you are not a skier. Its geographical location and its mountainous massifs offer many possibilities to discover the mountain in a different way, to oxygenate yourself and to make live the village spirit, specific to Val d’Isère.

What are the real benefits of winter sports?

  • The high altitude of Val d’Isere (1850m), is a real asset for sportsmen. The higher you are, the more oxygen is scarce. The body then produces more red blood cells to carry more oxygen in the blood. The sporting capacities are then increased and the endurance improves in the effort. An improvement is visible after 3 or 4 days spent in the mountains. Many top athletes take advantage of these benefits to return to train every year.
  • Sporting at low temperatures also has benefits such as burning more calories to maintain core temperature.
  • Training at altitude regenerates the heart and lungs. If the good clean mountain air is a paradise for the lungs, it also boosts blood circulation thanks to the altitude and therefore allows a regeneration of blood and oxygen. A real cleaning for your lungs and your heart!”
  • The main advantage of winter sports remains the pleasure of moments shared with family or friends, the feeling of freedom provided by the adrenaline of sport. It is this feeling of well-being that helps to relax both body and mind.
