Val d'Isere Snowparks
Snowboarders and free-style skiers have access to the Val Park in the Bellevarde area via the Bellevarde or Olympique cable cars or the La Daille funicular. If you are coming over from Tignes you can take the Bolin Express from Val Claret or the Aeroski. The Val Park, as it's known, lies in the centre of the Bellvarde bowl just under the Mont Blanc chairlift and is serviced by the drag tow that runs up the side of the slalom course.
The park is clearly set out in different sections so that the jumps (kickers) are grouped together depending on their difficulty. Like pistes, they are green, blue, red and black. If you are new to the slopes it is best to start on the greens, just like on the slopes.There is also has a section designed for riding rails with some easy boxes for beginners as well as the more technical rails.
The park is well maintained by a dedicated team and some of the kickers here are specially shaped for photo shoots and competitions meaning that they can get quite big and can change often. The biggest problem with the Val Park is not the kickers and rails within it, they are uniformly good, it is the location. Although it lies in a natural sun trap and is sheltered from the wind it is a short, wide run meaning that the lifts that access it run first along its base and then up its side so you will easily spend more time on the lifts than you do on the features.
