April in Val d'Isère


Val d'Isère closes on 5 May. The snow will last until June. The second half of April, when the Brits have all gone back to school and the French are on the Côte d'Azur, is a glorious time in Val d'Isère. Prices are low, slopes are empty and the snow is abundant. The only reason Val d'Isère's lifts close on 5 May is because no-one skis in May, but there'll still be snow on every piste!

The problem is that we are so used to doom and gloom that nobody believes there can be fabulous conditions on empty pistes at reasonable prices. And anyone who can get a week off seems to be booking Lanzarote rather than Val.


For a reminder of Val d'Isère at its best, here's a film shot by the STVI, Val d'Isère's lift company, currently viewable on the ski school Progression's website: http://www.progressionski.com/blog/2013/02/27/val-disere-ski-area/



21 April

Our last week of the season.


Chalet Les Chardons (sleeps 40-48) £430 A rooms / £390 B rooms
Chalet La Couchire (sleeps 16) £495
Le Vieux Crêt (sleeps 8-10) £525


These prices include our outbound charter flight from Gatwich to Grenoble, and transfers to Val d'Isère on Sunday 21 April.


Coming home on Sunday 28 April the flight is not included, though YSE provides a transfer to Geneva airport. You can book a low-cost scheduled flight for yourself. The earlier you book, the cheaper these flights are, and the less your holiday will cost. On Sunday 28 April, the YSE coach transfers from Val d’Isère to Geneva are at 7am and 9.30am. If you do not use YSE transfers in either direction or our YSE flight to travel out, we give an Own Transport discount of £50, as the prices already reflect the transport arrangements.
