Before the end-of-year parties go in to full swing, Val d'Isère will host a big 'Snow Party' to kick off the festivities. From Dec. 5 to 12, 2009, come to Espace Killy for a week of fresh powder skiing peppered with an array of activities.

Everything starts Sunday morning at a welcome reception with free pastries and hot drinks. Then, it's either off to discover the resort with a certified ski instructor or to leave your first traces on any of the resort's 154 pistes.

The rest of the week continues with a program of various activities: live concerts, themed evenings, torch-lit night skiing, even speed dating on the chair lift. Don't forget to register with Val d'Isère réservation if you plan on participating in the guided visit and/or the speed dating

For the event, Val d'Isère has created a special package deal that includes a free six-day Espace Killy pass, seven nights' accommodation, plus the six day pass for €279 per person in an apartment (four people, maximum occupancy) or €560 per person in a hotel, breakfast included. This pass is your key to the 300 kilometres of pistes that Val d'Isère and Tignes share in the Espace Killy.

Certain parts of the stay such as admission to the themed evenings and dining are not included in the price. Participants do however benefit from reduced prices when they show their Snow Party bracelet.
