Val d'Isere remains open but not for skiing. Ski touring, XC skiing, skate skiing and walking are all possible in the stunning environment.
We await a national review of the C-19 infection numbers in France that is expected around the 6th January. This information will help Val d'Isere decide when it is possible for resort to open, hopefully around the 20th January.
