Bonneval Link Proposal

Val d’Isère’s discreet twin, Bonneval-sur-Arc, the tiny resort at 1800m on the other side of the Col de l’Iseran, has applied for permission to build a single lift right up to the Pissaillas Glacier, linking with Val d’Isère’s lifts. This would add considerable piste and off-piste skiing to the Espace Killy, in exchange for adding a relatively small number of beds to the total number already in the area.

At the moment, this is a vast off-piste domain, and you have to come back from the Bonneval side by helicopter. We don’t think the National Parks will allow it, but either way the slopes dropping 1500m into the Maurienne Valley are something every skier or boarder should do at least once in his or her life!
