Ski Pass and Discounts

Val d’Isère’s ski pass costs less than in any comparable resort. Even in incomparable Cairngorm you’d pay almost the same! As well as the normal pass covering the whole Val d’Isère/Tignes area, 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 aged 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, especially small children who can go up and down these lifts with their ski school or their parents, staying at the warmer resort-level.

BEGINNER PASS
The new nursery slopes at the top of Solaise mean beginners are no longer confined to the nursery slopes at resort-level (where the beginner lifts are free). Beginners will, however, need a ski pass to access these higher nursery slopes. Evolution 2, ESF and Oxygène ski schools offer a special lower-price 6-day ski pass costing €148 (€133 before 12 December 2019) for children and adults who book a week of beginner lessons with them (morning, afternoon or all day). This pass gives access to the upper nursery slopes on Solaise as well as ALL of Val d’Isère’s lifts, even when you’re not skiing with your instructor. YSE cannot offer this special ski pass directly, but any beginner booking a week of lessons can buy it via the ski school (please check with the ski school when booking).

BUYING SKI PASSES

Pre-paying
The LATE APRIL HALF-PRICE ski pass described below must be pre-paid in the UK. These are available for YSE guests only. Scroll down for full details.

Buying on the coach
You can buy ALL OTHER ski passes on the YSE transfer coach between Geneva airport and Val d’Isère, and we deliver them to your chalet later the same evening. You can pay for ski passes on the coach with euros cash, sterling cash, Visa/Mastercard debit or credit cards, or American Express.

Buying ski passes if you are not using the YSE transfer
If you aren’t travelling to Val d’Isère on the YSE transfer coach, please speak to your chalet staff on arrival so arrangements can be made for buying and delivering your ski passes.

Buying pedestrian passes
Pedestrian passes can also be bought on the coach as above.

Buying beginner passes
We are not able to buy the special Beginner Pass (see above) which you must buy from the ski school you’ve booked your week’s lessons with.

DISCOUNTS

FAMILY DISCOUNT

Bought on the YSE transfer bus (as described above).
Available to families of four or more, for six-day passes. Everyone must be related (spouse, child, grandchild). Maximum of two family members past their 22nd birthday, minimum of two under it. Students aged 18-21 must show a student card. Children under 5 don’t count because their pass is free anyway. All family members purchasing the family pass must do so at the same time and for the same number of days.

The deal is that everyone pays €244, the child (5-13 yrs) price, which is 20% cheaper than the adult (14-64 yrs) price. For a family of four with two children under 14 the saving isn’t huge – just the adults paying the children’s price. For a family of six with teenagers and students, it’s pretty good.

LATE APRIL HALF-PRICE DISCOUNT

Pre-paid to YSE in the UK. We will add the cost to your Confirmation and Invoice for each person on your booking unless you tell us about anyone who does not require a ski pass.

For holidays commencing 19 April 2020, we offer a six-day pass for £170 per person, regardless of your age. You may also buy a seven-day pass, for £195 but these are only available in pairs, so you cannot buy a single seven-day pass through us on this offer.

If you are coming on holiday with YSE for two weeks, the second of which is 19-26 April 2020, probably the cheapest option is to buy a normal six-day pass and a reduced seven-day pass. You will have to pay for the seven-day pass in advance (buying in multiples of two) and then buy the six-day pass on the transfer coach, as described above. The cost will be the price of the special seven-day pass (£195) plus €304. Alternatively, we can buy you the normal thirteen-day pass for €572. Depending on the exchange rate at the time, this might be the cheaper option. It is certainly simpler!

NB These special ski pass offers are available only to those who have purchased YSE holidays!
