It is important to know that your journey from Chambery Airport to Val-d’Isere will take you to a very high altitude. This may present some difficulties to some visitors.
Chambery Airport is located at an altitude of approximately 235 meters, while the highest lift in Val-d’Isere has an altitude of 3450 meters. This can cause mild discomfort in some people. Nausea, headaches and dizziness are all potential symptoms of a change in the air pressure. Young children are at a particular risk of feeling unwell.
The air pressure change combined with steep, serpentine roads can be difficult for some people. If needed, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
On the bright side, if you are feeling particularly unwell, the unbelievable mountain scenery of Val-d’Isere can be the perfect medicine for you. Distract yourself by taking out your camera and capturing a few beautiful and iconic moments on your journey.
Val-d’Isere’s ski area offers high quality, snow-sure slopes for everyone, starting with the beginner nursery slopes and ending with the epic off-piste riders.

The resort is part of the popular Espace Killy ski area and is made up of three main areas: Le Fornet (up the valley towards Italy), ‘Val Village’ (in the centre) and La Daille (down the valley, closest to Tignes).
Your ski pass will give you access to approximately 300km of downhill skiing, with 154 individual pistes, combined with 87 ski lifts. Whatever your level of experience, Val d’Isere has a large variety on offer for absolutely everyone.
