Snow is already piling up on the pistes above Val d’Isère in spectacular style! It’s a timely moment for the resort to announce plans for the official start to the 2019-2020 winter season with First Tracks.
Unlike most resorts at the moment, the snow situation in Val d’Isère is excellent at altitude, and the opening weekend will go ahead as scheduled.
What’s new in Val d’Isère this winter 2018-2019 ?
FUN FOR CHILDREN : Valkids is a new play area designed for children aged four to 10 years. It is situated below the beginner Sunny Ride piste on Solaise.
FOLIE DOUCE : The original and, our opinion, still the best Folie Douce is perched at 2400m above La Daille and can be reached this winter by the new high speed 10-person gondola.
From this December, a brand new 10-person Poma gondola costing €10m will bring skiers from La Daille up to the Folie Douce, the famous après-ski. The “Téléski des 3000”, one of Val d’Isère’s iconic ski lifts, which has been closed for the pastsix years, has been renovated and is to reopen for the coming season.
