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. This annual get-together is the most awaited date in the calendar for all dedicated fans of Val d’Isère. The programme includes special deals and the chance to sample all the new gear for this winter with free ski and snowboard tests, organised by Ski Force Winter Tour. There’s also an entertainment for all.


Ski area opening day is Saturday, November 30th, 2019. The unique pistes of Val d’Isère will be groomed to perfection in time for your arrival.  It’s an opportunity to discover or rediscover recent features of the ski area. These include the notorious 3000 drag lift, the state-of-the art gondola at La Daille, and new facilities for children in the Val Kids zones.

To give you the very best of first tracks, the Val d’Isère-Tignes link will be open from November 30th, 2019 to May 3rd, 2020.*

*snow conditions permitting.

It’s a chance for you to try out – entirely free of charge – the latest models from 19 different brands of ski.  Also available are 14 brands of snowboard and three makes of accessories.

A truly festive weekend

Throughout the weekend enjoy musical entertainment in the test village with DJ Julio and the famous musicians Funky Brass. Throughout the event there’ll be competitions with lots of prizes on offer.

On Saturday afternoon from 4.30pm come along for a musical warm-up with a hot local drink. Get a lucky dip in the tombola beginning at 5pm – it’s your chance to win ski or snowboard equipment.  At 6pm, One Rusty Band will set the Tourist Office square on fire. This explosive singing duo plays guitar, drums, and harmonica as they cover everything from the blues of the 50s to 70s’ rock. After a great day on skis, join us at 7pm on Saturday in the Congress Centre for the showing of four ski films and meet in person our celebrity freeriders Leo Taillefer and Julien Lange.
