Winter ski season dates in Val d'Isere

When can you ski in Val d'Isere?
Weather/snow conditions permitting, you can usually ski in Val d'Isere from December-April using the lift system. Naturally, the season can be extended, typically with weekend openings in November or by ski-touring/hiking yourself up!

The Tignes glacier is usually partially open to skiers and pedestrians, snow cover permitting, in October for the French half-term (Toussaint) school holidays.

Season start and end dates may vary slightly as they are dependent on snow conditions. There may be a reduced ski area in operation if snow cover is insufficient or due to early/late season ramp up/down.
