Tignes le Lac tends to be slightly busier than many of the other villages, but it’s close proximity to the slopes and breathtaking scenery make it one of the best options for skiers.

Transport is available from here to Val D’Isere and towards the intermediate-friendly pistes at the other side of the valley, while the hotels here are truly exceptional, including the marvelous Chalet Hotel Rosset.
