Val D’isére, the 1992 Olympic Games host. The best of french skiers grew up on these mountains. There are endless possibilities skiing offpiste in Val D’isére. The mountain is snow secure with the city on 1850 m. If you want to go higher there is the Grand Motte glacier on 3500 m. Val D’isére has a combined ski area with excellent Tignes. The system has around 300 km of pists and 94 ski lifts.
The off-piste is awesome with endless of possibilities. We were there in March 2016 and unfortunately almost without any snow falling during the week. There were enough snow on the slope but we were dreaming about 30 cm of powder.
UCPA Ski Instructor Lolo
In our group of eight Swedish riders we had the excellent and professional instructor Lolo.
The center on the UCPA has great staff and they make your week to the very best. The center is rough and you live up to eight people in small rooms with shower and toilet in the hallway. They have plans to renovate and I think it’s about time they start.
VAL D’ISÈRE City
The UCPA center is close to the city center. You have restaurants, pubs and shops close by just a couple of minutes walk. The shopping is expensive and I recommend you to buy everything at home for a cheaper price. The after ski is great, we went to Coco Roco were you can ski in/ski out. There was great atmosphere with a live band playing every day.
The food at the UCPA is rich of choices. Impressive that they serve fish every day. In the city you have many great restaurants to choose from .
The life with the UCPA is simple and everything is well organised with a good quality through the whole concept.
