Christmas, Val d'Isere

Celebrate a White Christmas in Val d'Isere

Featured in:

Wondering what to do this Christmas in Val d'Isere? The festive season in the snowy Alps is always magical and every year there is some sort of celebration in resort to mark the occasion. 

Christmas here is a far less commercial event than in the UK and so you won’t find things publicised for months in advance - but you can always be sure of a glass of vin chaud (mulled wine), a few carols and perhaps the odd firework or two!  Many of the restaurants will put on a special festive menu with champagne and traditional dishes on the 24th, so book in advance if you want to treat yourself to a meal out.

Christmas in Val d'Isere officially starts at the beginning of December when the Christmas lights are switched on. The night is normally marked with vin chaud, hot chocolate and music. From then on you can enjoy Christmas concerts, festive markets and live music throughout town as the resort gears up for Christmas and New Year (take a look at our events calendar for more Christmas markets, parades and family friendly things to do and see. 

The best part of spending Christmas in Val d'Isere is being able to ski on Christmas day - yes the ski lifts are open as normal and you'll be sure to see a few skiing Santas...

Joyeux Noel!
