Cécile F. in France sends in,Val d'Isère elected best ski resort of the year in Europe for 2006
Val d’Isère, situated at the convergence of two deep valleys, bears witness to the eternal energy of its mountains : the legendary Bellevarde , the more easily accessible Solaise and the wildest and most picturesque Iseran …. Dissimilar but magnificent places full of potential for inspiring skiers to reach beyond their wildest dreams.
Play with the gradients, conquer the snow, carve perfect turns, slalom through the forest, feel the heady intoxication of the glaciers and giddy heights, follow sun’s path to enjoy optimum snow conditions
