Choosing a resort for your ski break? Perhaps it’s time for Tignes!

So you’re ready to book your ski holiday and you just can’t decide between the incredible choice of resorts. Then how about Tignes, our resort of the week?


The Resort

This French resort is great for both novices and pros alike. With so much to do, not just ski and snowboarding, it’s great for families, big groups of friends and lone adventure seekers who are keen to enjoy the snowy climate.

Tignes is reliable for good snowfall in both the early and late season due to it’s high altitude. It’s well connected to Val-d’Isère, another popular French ski resort. Between the two resorts there’s a choice of 154 ski slopes fit for all abilities. It also has access to six slalom runs, a gliss’ park, a mogul park and two snow parks.
