Media Release: Winter Wonderland chronicles present Tignes – the ski resort that packs a punch

EIGHTY per cent of the skiing area in Tignes is classified as off-piste. This means that the resort’s specialty is skiing outside the box.

This ethos transcends across the entire resort: from its exciting ‘apres-ski’ scene to its extreme winter sports competitions, Tignes ensures that its skiers get as much out of their experience as they put into it.

However, those who prefer the lighter side of skiing can also enjoy the beginner and intermediate slopes, dining at the Panoramic restaurant and pampering at the balneotherapy centre.

The majority of skiers at Tignes are under 35 and to cater to their nightlife needs, Tignes has electro DJs spin throughout the winter months and hosts a variety of clubbing events to stay warm during those cold nights!

For those looking for a different king of alpine experience, Tignes offers the possibility of ice diving for both beginner and experienced divers. Also, Tignes has family friendly attractions such as a lagoon to swim in, a snowpark and an ice skating rink.
