What's On in Val d'Isere February 2018

February is the start of the busy season, as such there is a lot going on this month. From regular club nights to carnivals.

Here's our breakdown of the most exciting events in Val d'Isere this month. We've picked out the ones to watch out for but our events calendar has a complete list of everything going on in town this month.

Apres ski & Nights out

Val d'Isere

Val d’Isere has a bit of a reputation for parties and when you look at the list of apres sessions and club nights it easy to see why. All month, all season even, there’s a host of weekly shindigs on and off the slopes. The Folie Douce hosts its famous on mountain apres parties daily, with a special fancy dress edition every Wednesday and a disco party on Mondays. When you’re done on the slopes, keep the good times rolling (sliding?) with apres at Cocorico which runs until 20:00. If you’re not partied out by then you can head to Doudoune nightclub which is open late every day or, on Tuesdays, hit up Tequila Tuesday at Moris Pub!
