Nearly 90 lifts transport ski vacationers through the skiing area quickly and conveniently.
Countless off-piste slopes, glacier slopes on the Grande Motte, slopes through the woods to Val d’Isere and into villages below Tignes entice true ski and snowboard aficionados to Espace Killy, along with numerous deep snow slopes or the world famous racing slopes at Rocher de Bellevarde in Val d´Isère a defused version of the Olympic slope for men that is open to normal skiers. Sophisticated mogul slopes at the Solaise and the ski canyoning stretch into the Gorges de Malpasset round off the offer for professional skiers.
Thanks to mostly blue and red slopes, as well as numerous practice slopes with partially free ski lifts, the skiing region Espace Killy is also the ideal destination for beginners of all ages to gather first experiences on the slope. 821 snow canons gurantee snow from the end of November to May.
