Excellent ski resort and child friendly hotels
Lots of snowbladers
In a nutshell
A great place for a winter holiday
Skiing with her parents in the French ski resort, enjoying the ski station Savoie Alpes
Tignes enjoys all the skiing attributes of Val d'Isere, as they combine to make up the L'Espace Killy. The 300km of marked pistes cover all abilities and provide greatly varied mountain terrain.
The skiing in Tignes is simply fast, and with several free lifts for beginners helping the excellent local ski and snowboard schools.
I have to admit, i never went there because skiing is not my favourite journey.
But i like to show VT members some recommended places of skiing
Updated Apr 18, 2006
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Layers, Layers, Layers. It is a lot better to wear three lighter tops than a big jumper. You might look daft but it keeps the cold out.
You also might like to think about take a spare change of clothes with you and leaving them in the car (If you have one). Ive been soaked through too many times without a dry set of clothes and its not the nicest feeling ever.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Never hit the slopes without a sufficient supply of painkillers about your person. You might not need them but you never know when someone else in extreme pain might be so gratefull just for a paracetamol.
Do not forget to pack a high factor sun cream. Just because its cold it doesnt mean you dont need it. A friend in April burnt all over his face and apparently it hurt.
Photo Equipment: Depending on you level on the slopes you might be able to take a high quality camera out with you. If you are likely to fall over lots then there are now disposable cameras which have a rubber outer and are water resistant. Just the job for all the beautifull sunsets
