Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Thank you.

@marodo2712,

Hmmm... Near enough, me thinks - like Le Fornet.

Or do you think tour companies should advertise them as resorts in their own right? Puzzled

Don't ever fly with a low cost airline. Some of their airports are much further from the city they claim than La Daille - Val D'Isere

I'd say it is. Just at one end. It's covered by the same lift pass and buses.

@Bergmeister, they should advertise them as 'La Daille, Val D'Isere', not just 'Val D'Isere'.

@martinm, Tignes is covered by the same lift pass and buses, but it isn't Val D'Iser!

(Currently shopping around for catered chalet packages with my 10 year old son. I've skied over to VD, and liked what I saw.)

TBF. There is no free Ski Bus from Tignes to VDI - and there is a Tignes only (and VDI only) Lift Pass available.

Close enough to call it VDI imo, free 10 mins ski bus. If someone doesn’t do their research that’s up to them

@marodo2712, Yes it is. TOs are marketing Val d'Isere the resort, not Val d'Isere the village/town. And the former certainly includes La Daille.

I agree that this can be a PITA, but everyone does it, in every resort. And the different parts of the resort often correspond to different prices. If say you are looking for cheaper holidays in "Val d'Isere" and being shown mainly ones in La Daille you might need to increase your price point.

+2. I've had some pleasant holidays based at La Daille. Rather nice to potter down the Vallee Perdue. Not the most raucous night life, but not too far to the centre.

@achilles, not dissimilar to stopping in Laisinant, Leggetaz, or Chatelard, think that's what they call the area near the defunct Clochetons.

Legally it's all the same postcode! But that didn't stop the Val mafia ignoring La Daille for many years. At least the new Gondy has reset that. Still as all the cheaper places in the Centre are replaced to serve the super clients, the staff will have to live somewhere.

If you want to ski in La Daille, you'll need a Val d'Isere lift pass. I'd expect tour operators to advertise two main areas in Espace Killy: Tignes and Val d'Isere. When you go into more detail it should say La Daille area of Val d'Isere.

It's like saying;
Argentiere and Les Houches aren't Chamonix, nor's Le Tour, Les Bossons, Les Nants
Brides Les Bains isn't Meribel
Les Boisses and Tignes
Is St Bon Courchevel?
Les Allues or Mottaret Meribel?
as for all the satellites of Morzine.....

Compared to some of these La Daille is more Val d'Isere than they some of these examples......

That was created and used for the Olympics. The Downhill uses the OK course that more or less follows the piste of the same name.

I'm not sure that being 20min walk or a short bus doesn't make La Daille part of Val D'Isere. By that reckoning most London boroughs aren't actually in London!

There are probably as many poor people in Val as there are in Courchevel.

La Daille is part of the resort same as Fornet, like it or not. As said above, people need to do their research.

@marcellus, I think it’s fair enough to say that La Daille is part of VdI, but I’d disagree that you can reasonably say Brides Les Bains is part of Meribel. You could stretch the truth a bit and claim its part of the 3V but part of Meribel? No.
