Spent a week in Val D'Isère at the end of March 2003 and of course it will be a couple of days in Tignes. Twenty-four weeks ago, there was no snowfall when we saw a single snowflake falling down from the sky, on the other hand, increasing surfaces of snowless fields on the other side of the valley on the sun side.

Due to prevailing snow conditions, all easy-to-reach offpiste was already raised so we had a week in the piste, a bit boring but you should get the best out of the situation. In this case, it's so lucky to be in such a well-planned and modern area. Read the lancheschair and the metro on the Grande Motte are two pearls that take you up to the skating, carving down in the Face / Double M slopes are cool. Thunderstorms like the other day, so it may be quite crowded. Other piste favorites were Myosotis and Stade de Lognan at L'Aiguille Percee.

Do not miss lunch at the bottom of the Sache Gondola in Les Brevieres. Really cozy to sit in the sun gas to take a bira there =)

Stayed at Langley's hotel Tignes 2100 in room # 507.
Sold a Swedish flag with the text "Prisoners in Paradise" on the balcony, something that apparently tore someone and we had to take it down after a day - Frenchmen ....

Great skiing and some people. A cruel off-piste from the peak when it had been new, made the trip even more enjoyable. Not to mention the rope from the top down to the "three-second town" !!! Løåång skön räckning som blevas med röda och svarta pister!

Lovely area!

Went glacier skiing there v44. cannon weather, so basically it's over the clouds. The park is well, but overcrowded, there was a mini park that was forced to hang in. Me cash lift, which pajj clothes, I think "people think" of my equipment. Fairly expensive, I have for me, but they are the ones in the Alps. The backs are quite ok, but the best ones have been shut down due to national teams, of course, in advance season training. Then the slopes down to the valley do not open. May be fine if you go there in high season. The nightlife is no better at all.

We were in Val d'Isère v.1-02 and of course visited Tignes.
Absolutely wonderful skiing and completely unbeatable nature. (Too bad that three of us five girls got pneumonia on day 3. Probably probably on the sleeper bus. Next time there will be a flight.)

Ok. Tignes is probably the ugliest alp village I've been to. But if you ignore this fact, really, Tignes has a really lovely ride.
The system is extremely well-oiled and cleverly built and good access to bold driving.
You can divide the system into two parts consisting of Val Claret (Grand Motte) and Tignes.
The best skiing is available at Grand Motte but can be a bit difficult to find. However, if you have a good local knowledge, you can find a nice trip.

When you are in Val d'Isere you spend at least a couple of days in Tignes. Thats how it is. Very nice "sliding skiing" and a nice little town where you can stay and have lunch. The negative is that there are not so many "difficult" backs in Tignes. However, there are some lifts further away in Val d'Isere so it does not matter anymore. Of the places I've been to, I have hitherto been given the best impression of tignes

The suction got too big so I had to get away from me during the November holidays last season, First thought on Stryn, but decided to Tignes .. 20 degrees hot when we arrived and no snow as far as the eye could reach, damn oh, waste money , I thought..
But after taking the train through the mountain and up on the glacier, I was said to be amazed at least. In front of me I see snow and snow again
plenty!! The skiing here was definitely amazing! I mean, who can resist shining sun, 15 degrees hot, and pillows, in the fall of autumn !!
Not me at least. The thing does not get worse because almost the whole freeride elite hung in the snow park ..
Highly recommended!!

Tignes is something for you who prioritizes skiing before the party. Tignes consists of three villages. Val Claret where I lived is very small and has limited entertainment options. It's from the 60's so it means it's so French functional with a lot of concrete. Enormous system that is combined with Val d'Isere offers huge choices. Went with UCPA and the center is fresh and is a few hundred meters from the nearest lift.
Great place to go to late spring because it is so high. Got wonderful pillows and offpist that I never forget during v.13.

Tignes - snow-proof and superb skiing. The village itself is not much to cheer for but going to Tignes is for skiing.

very good ski resort ...... unfortunately too many rules about bans etc. tignes has very good loose areas but the prohibitions everywhere are forcing one to break the rules.
The slopes are tired of either flat or as in the steepest places where there was often a lack of snow during my week. In addition to skiing, the village and the people get a top rating.
