Locally, the valley tends to vote for the candidates of the right, but not of the far right.
Val d'Isere is the most notable example of this pattern - with 52% voting for Fillon in the 1st round - not far off the 58% recorded by Sarkozy in 2012. Yet just 12% supported Le Pen, and she trailed in 4th place - just behind Melenchon (12%) and Macron (11%). Come the second round, the village voted strongly for Macron, by 72% to 28%.
Tignes followed a similar pathway, albeit without quite such thumping first-round victory for Fillon.
Bourg-St-Maurice is more of a mixed bag politically, with Fillon emerging out in front after the first round, but only just. Again, Marine Le Pen came in fourth:

Set against all this, the most politically interesting village in the valley is Landry, which put Melenchon first, with all the main candidates putting in a decent showing.
Séez is notable for having Le Pen narrowly ahead in round 1, albeit defeated by 62-38 in the run-off. The FN candidate did relatively well in Villaroger too.
Meanwhile, neighbouring Montvalezan (below La Rosiere) saw one of the heaviest victories for Macron last Sunday, by 76% to 24%.
