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. In this miniature resort ski area little ones can go behind the scenes to learn about snow-making and ‘drive’ a cable-car. They can also find out about piste grooming and mountain rescue. Valkids has its own stretch of piste along with toboggans, deck chairs and picnic tables.
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. An escalator brings you directly from the lift to the terrace. New for this season this winter is The Beaufort Gallery, a 200m2 cheese maturing room with views of Mont Blanc. It can be booked for private parties. The wine cellar has a warm ambience with nearly 3000 wines chosen by the sommelier of adjoining La Fruitière. The centrepiece is a large rustic wooden table that is perfect for wine-tastings. Located in the extension of the wine cellar, the cigar room offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains thanks to its large windows. In this place, it is possible to taste the dishes à la carte of the restaurant La Fruitière. Fans will be tempted by a cigar from a wide selection of vintage winespicture windows.
VAL D’ISÈRE NIGHT LIFE
This winter a number of mountain restaurants will come alive at night, the perfect star-lit setting for a series of dinner parties and shows at altitude. Enjoy apres-ski time !
