There are over 300km of pistes for all abilities (22 green runs, 68 blue runs, 39 red runs and 26 black runs) which you can access via the 88 ski lifts covering the Val d'Isere & Tignes ski areas. The lifts can take you from resort level at 1,850 metres all the way up to 3,450 metres. 

Val d'Isere itself has 42 lifts, the majority of which are chair lifts, and there are 15 drag lifts. The link to Tignes and the rest of the Espace Killy ski area is easily acheived for all levels of skiers. Take a look at the piste map to see how it is all joined together.

With access to 2 glaciers, one in Le Fornet and one in Tignes at the Grand Motte, the lifts are not only open in the winter but in the summer as well, meaning you can enjoy all the mountain activities almost all year round.
