Val d'Isere, in the Savoie area of France, is a colourful winter sports haven that began as a farm community in the years BC. It is the better-known part of Espace Killy. The huge skiing domain, shares itself with purpose-built Tignes. The area is named for Olympic hero Jean-Claude Killy, who grew up in Val d'Isere. The charming village finds its 1,800 residents outnumbered 15 to one by guests in winter. Espace Killy has 300 kilometres of maintained slopes cut through vast snowfields that stretch to the horizon. Ninety-nine lifts can move more than 135,000 skiers an hour, uphill. Much of the terrain is ideal for cruisers, but there are many opportunities for snowboarders and powder skiers to show their stuff. A lot of skiers accept the challenge of the Bellevarde downhill, designed for the 1992 Olympics. Some parts of the 915 metre drop have a 63 percent angle and running it earns bragging rights in the lively Val d'Isere apres-ski scene.
