New four-star hotel opens in Tignes
Opened by MGM, Les Suites du Nevada comprises 24 luxury bedrooms constructed from local stone, wood and river-bed slate.
Each suite also comes with a range of hi-tech features flat-screen LCD TVs, whirlpool baths and rain-curtain showers.
In a statement, the company said Tignes had suffered from a lack of four-stay hotel-style serviced accomodation for some time.
"Careful consideration of the views in Tignes enabled us to identify a vital factor preventing the village from realising its full potential as a ski destination of the highest order," it added.
In related news, the third competition of the Freeride World Tour takes place in Tignes this month between March 8th and 14th.
