European Resort of the Year: Val d'Isère

A new 10-person gondola with heated seats and wifi that can carry 3,600 people replaces a cable car and chairlift, greatly increasing access to the Solaise area. There’s also a new beginner area and day lodge at the top of the gondola including a picnic area with microwaves and kids’ area with cushions and a TV showing cartoons.


Après Resort of the Year: Val d'Isère

This was a tough one to call, with Verbier coming a close second – but new openings like Cocorico après bar with live bands, Ski Gallery and Fondue factory for families as well as firm favourites like the Folie Douce, Dicks T bar and Doudoune made this year’s winner Val d’Isère.
