ESPACE KILLY SKI PASS
Val d’Isère’s lift passes cost less
than in any comparable resort. Even in incomparable Cairngorm you’d pay
almost the same! The hands-free electronic lift passes work beautifully,
with your lift pass remaining safely zipped into an inside pocket all
week. As well as the normal pass covering the whole Espace Killy,
including Tignes, there is a Val d’Isère-only pass, but it gives 50%
less skiing for a saving of only 5%.
Children under 5 ski free, as do
adults of 75 and over. All the little lifts at the foot of the
Solaise and La Daille slopes are free to everyone. This is ideal for
beginners, though they quickly progress to the higher slopes where they
require a pass.

or more. There needs
to be one parent or grandparent (who must be at least 14!). The other
three or more members must be his/her spouse and/or his/her/their
children or grandchildren. Children aged 5 to 17 inclusive count towards family, as do 18 to 21-year olds if they show a student card. Children
under 5 don’t count because their pass is free anyway. All those
purchasing the family pass must do so at the same time and for the same
number of days. These passes are bought on the YSE transfer bus and cannot be pre-booked.

and paying a fee of €10 you can get about €11 off (5%). You’d then get a
further €45 off next year if you spent more than €800 this year. It
seems to be aimed at big families who visit Val d’Isère twice per season
Nowadays we thoroughly recommend that you take out the Carré Neige
insurance even though you already have travel insurance. All of the
pre-paid ski passes mentioned above include Carré Neige and it will be available for purchase with all other ski passes organised on the transfer coaches.
The reason for this is that the Val d'Isère mountain rescue service
has had numerous problems extracting payment from British insurance
companies, and now treats all British people as uninsured if they cannot
show the approved French Carte Neige or Carré Neige cover. However well
insured you may be, you will be brought down in a sledge if you are
injured, while those with French insurance will get a free helicopter
ride! This does not apply to life-threatening injuries, where everyone
is treated the same, nor to short journeys with minor injuries, when a
helicopter is unlikely to be called. Less than 1% of skiers get injured
nowadays, but those who do are very glad if they have taken Carré Neige.
