Epic Snowfall

For once the word ‘epic’ is not an overstatement when describing Val d’Isère’s snow conditions this Winter 2017-18. Conditions are the most extreme anyone at YSE can remember, and we’ve been in Val d’Isère since 1976. All that was lacking was thunder and lightning, so lo and behold, we had a thunderstorm in the middle of the blizzard. That hadn’t happened for thirty years!

If you’re going to have bad weather, you might as well have properly exciting bad weather. And enough snow to ski on until July…

We’ve put some of our latest photos from Val d’Isère on the Snow page of this website.
