What you'll do
By the end of the day you will feel familiar with the resort’s best ski spots, which lifts to take, where to eat, and how to maximize your adventure in one of the wintry jewels of France. Join Caroline, or one of her team of local instructors, in the vibrant village of Val d’Isere, which sits at 1,850 meters above sea level. It is the highest skiable area in Europe, and hosts an epic 300 kilometers of terrain. Caroline will also help you to plan the rest of your trip, telling you of the snow and weather conditions, and pointing you in the right direction towards the best ski spots for you. This “discovery” trip is designed for intermediate skiers who can comfortably ski down red runs. We will meet at the chairlift in the center of the resort and enjoy some skiing on its endless runs. Then we can either enjoy a nice lunch at a local restaurant, or have a picnic outside among the pristine landscape. We will refuel before going back out to ski more of the flowing blue and red runs with their breathtaking views. You can’t end to day without trying a delicious, well-deserved cup of chocolat chaud (local style hot chocolate) in Caroline’s favorite place. So get family and friends together, explore Val d’Isere like a local and capture the beauty of the classic French Alps. If you can't find your desired date, still contact me and we can find something that works.
Explore Val d’Isere with Gauthier and Caroline, a certified ski instructor who was born and raised in the Alpine mountains, and immersed in their rugged culture. Caroline’s neverending passion drove to become a ski instructor, and loves to share her expertise with fellow adventurers. Her way of life is dedicated to the mountains, which are like her wintry backyard, where she can show you secret spots and hidden gems around Val d’Isere. Gauthier will be your main point of contact during the whole booking process, answering any questions or queries that you may have.
