Discovering Val d'Isere with a mountain professional, a Val d'Isere mountain guide and an Espace Killy ski instructor is a guarantee of safety and pleasure. Val d'Isere offers a multitude of off-piste itineraries on the mountainsides of Le Fornet, Solaise, Bellevarde and of course all the Tignes slopes. You need more than a week of off-piste and easy ski-trekking to fully appreciate the Espace Killy. The Initial Snow Ski School Val d'Isere will ensure you discover as much as possible depending on your technical level. Short ski hikes using the Val d'Isere ski lifts where possible will enable you to make your own tracks in the spectacular scenery that is Val d'Isere.

S The Ski School doesn't only cover the Val d'Isere ski area

For the more daring among you, Tignes and the Grande Motte offer wonderful opportunities to ski down the north face through seracs and crevasses. This is the magic of the Espace Killy: Val d'Isere and Tignes are unlike anywhere else. The ski and adventure school can offer you a thrilling time on this great mountain.

S Val d'Isere Ski and Heli-Ski School

In the Le Fornet and the Col de l'Iseran sectors, a combination of an hour of ski-trekking and a wonderful descent to Bonneval en Maurienne with a return trip to the Val d'Isere ski area by helicopter will be one of the best day's skiing you will ever experience...

The Initial Snow Ski School ski instructors will organise the helicopter drop with a starting point in Val d'Isere. Within a few minutes of skiing, we will find ourselves in the Aosta Valley (Ruitor, Monseti, etc...) or in the Sestriere ski area. Of course heli-skiing is an elite activity but the helicopter also enable you to link between resorts, to meet up with friends or to plant your skis in the powder of Haute Tarentaise resorts.
