New Year in Val d'Isere - It goes off!
Spending New Year in the mountains is a magical & increasingly popular way to see in the next year. Most resorts have a celebration on offer & many throw a massive party, Val d'Isere is one that really pushes the boat out & draws the crowds.
The party last year launched with the Folie Douce throwing a big show on the piste with people dancing on tables, getting in the party mood & laying the foundations for the big night & countdown.
Once the lifts have closed, the resort gets out of the ski gear, takes on fluids & fuel & gets back out on the streets for more!
Meeting in the town centre for the countdown at midnight, the whole resort comes together! There's an epic firework display made only more excellent by the mountain scenery reflected in the blasts, people are dancing all around the town, drinks & good times are flowing. The whole town then disperses to various places such as Dick's Tea Bar, MBC or Doudoune to continue partying until the sun comes up.
Val d'Isere is a resort with everything you need, the town itself has great atmosphere, friendly people, fantastic bars and of course the excellent skiing & snowboarding options. With 350 kilometres of piste to ski, great weather and the best snow you can imagine, what better way to start a new year?
Check out the Basecamp video from the 2012/13 New Year for a good idea of what to expect!
