Val d’Isere continues to progress and innovate season after season. Their efforts have paid off as visitor numbers continues to rise and Val d’Isere becomes Iglu Ski's number 1 selling ski resort of winter 2017/18.
After the 2 year Solaise project completed in 2016, the new 5 year Le Coin De Val d’Isere project is underway with a scheduled completion date of 2022. This includes a €200 million plan to redevelop a section of the village with new hotels, apartments, shops, bars, underground walkways and more. We’ll update this page as we get new information about Val d’Isere.

New Gondola in La Daille
The original 4 seater gondola in La Daille has been running since 1966! After 52 years it will be replaced by a new 10 seater gondola with Wi-Fi and heater seats. The new cabins will take the overall passenger transport rate up to 2800 people an hour (compared to 933 before) and will take 4 mins 30 secs to reach the top (compared to 9 mins before). In total, fifty 10-seater gondolas will make their way along the line, as well as a VIP gondola.
The future gondola lift will follow an identical route to the existing lift. Starting at 1,802 metres and going up to 2,294 metres, the lift will still finish at La Folie Douce. The total cost for this project is 10 million euros.
Work has already begun on the upgrades:
