Located in the stunning scenery of the French Alps, L’Espace Killy combines the ski ranges of Tignes and Val d’Isere and is considered to be the premier ski resort in the world.
The glacier offers skiing most days a year (which few others even attempt) and for eight months a vertical drop of 1400 metres is maintained, with the aid of snow-making if necessary.
Whatever your preferred level of skiing, L’Espace Killy is sure to meet your needs. For the beginner, there is an abundance of nursery slopes and excellent ski-schools. The intermediate skier will enjoy the seemingly endless wide open runs and even the most advanced skiers will find the area hard to fault with its long, steep mogul fields and enormous off-piste area. The resort has five different base areas, the main one being Val Claret with Le Lac and Le Lavachet nearby. Lower down the mountain is Les Boisses and a renovated old village Les Brevieres, at the lowest point in the system – 1550 metres (higher than many ski areas end, but with 2000 metres above it!)
There is a comprehensive and well integrated system of chairlifts, telecabines and funiculars which ensure that you are onto the ski areas with the minimum of queuing. The system is being constantly enhanced and upgraded to offer even better access to the areas.
