Epic Europe

VAL D'ISÈRE

 

Despite the fact that Val d'Isère has undergone an architectural renovation programme the village remains deeply traditional. In 1983, when Savoy launched its bid to host the Winter Olympic Games, the local town council at that time decided to take an original approach. In the space of a few short years, the aspect of the resort changed and an authentic, traditional village welcomed the Olympic flame. Today any new construction work is closely monitored. Motor traffic is restricted in the village and the heart of the resort is reserved exclusively for pedestrians.

 

Early risers will be rewarded with the exceptional view of nature in full splendour. All the snow you could wish for is there on your doorstep. Savour the exhilarating experience of sweeping down the slopes from dawn until dusk. Enjoy all the top quality facilities that are naturally to be found in modern resorts. Rest a while and appreciate the charm of a traditional alpine village. Après ski is the perfect time for sharing tales of your day’s adventures by the fireside with the locals.

 

300 km of slopes, free-ride itineraries, a snowpark, a high altitude and an outstanding geographical situation combine to provide something for everyone, including children and beginners. Don’t forget Jean-Claude Killy learnt to ski in Val d’Isère. The skiing area is not called Espace Killy for nothing.

 

Val d’Isère is living proof that there’s more to the mountains than just skiing and snowboarding. Walking is the perfect way to explore Val d’Isère and its surroundings. The relaxed pace allows you to appreciate the animal and plant life whilst simply savouring the moment. Mountain biking is not in left. Val d’Isère and Tignes join forces to offer mountain bike enthusiasts a double dose of excitement. MTB access to the lifts is completely free of charge! Val d'Isère have just opened a special family and beginner easy green run on Bellevarde offering a 12 km gentle descent with lay-bys to rest in and admire the magnificent scenery.

 

  • Originally a small alpine farming village, Val d'Isere has continued to develop into a modern alpine resort whilst maintain its village feel and sense of tradition
  • The 'Espace Killy' ski area, in combination with its neighbouring resort Tignes, is dedicated to all aspects of skiing.

  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
