Val d’Isere Property owner? No need to hang up your ski kit just yet, the pistes are still open
13th April 2016 | Val d'Isere
If you are looking to invest in a ski property a critical factor is the reliability of the snow and the length of the ski season. For the best snow quality late in the season you ideally want a ski resort with plenty of north-facing terrain above 2500m.
Few other European ski resorts offer as much extensive high altitude skiing as L’Espace Killy where 60% of the 300km of pistes are above 2500m. L’Espace Killy benefits from good natural snowfall, plenty of north-facing terrain and two superb glaciers and is excellent for all levels of skier, with much of the easiest terrain at high altitude.
As a result of this Val D’isere has one of the longest seasons which started this season on the 28th November and the lifts will close in Val D’Isere on the 1st May and TIgnes on the 8th May. Val d’Isere is also one of the few places to offer summer skiing in the Alps thanks to the Pissaillas glacier, known as the Val d’Isère glacier, which is in the Fornet sector at the top of the valley.
Val D’Isere is regarded as a good bet for early and late season snow conditions so for keen skiers or those looking to invest in a ski resort, it’s difficult to suggest anywhere better to buy.
