Review 10/02/2010
The skiing here is great. I did miss tree lined runs, but you cannot have everything. The pistes are wide and well groomed. I had some great skiing. I also do not think the resort was the eyesore that people claim. Although purpose built, it was clean, tidy and neat like everything else in France. The après scene here is quieter compared to its neighbor Val d'Isere, but you can still find lively bars and clubs.

My First Trip 26/11/2012
Tignes for me was the perfect place to learn to ski. Friendly staff in the morning lessons and plenty of challenging runs for dare devils like myself to explore in the afternoon with friends. Stayed in a large basic hotel, but didn't mind as I was there for the snow and the nightlife. Tignes did not let me down when the sun set - usually ending up at the Melting Pot. Le lac and Le Lavachet have some beautiful chalets, so definitely worth checking them out. What is even better is you can get an area pass over to Val D'Isere! Amazing holiday.

Review 18/12/2006
Scotty's bar in Tignes Le Lavachet was insane. Very lively, great service, and the bar staff were excellent. Prices aren't too bad, around 2.5 euros for a half pint of beer and 5 euros for a cocktail. We ate at the Bagus cafe one day, excellent food, not too badly priced and I would recommend the Calzone if you're hungry, it’s massive. The ski buses run every 15 mins or so but if you don't mind the walk everything is pretty central. Recommended by the staff in our hotel were Jack’s and the Angel Bar.

I only heard good reports about the ski schools there from people I spoke to. However, Tignes is not a beginner resort. They have only a couple of green runs which are pretty steep and there are only 2 beginner chairlifts. There are masses of runs though for the intermediate and advanced skiers and the off piste is great out there.

Review 18/01/2007
Fantastic resort all round. Great snow even when the rest of Europe was struggling. Good green and blue runs including the Palafour which is a great end of week challenge for beginners. Great instructors and our children had a fabulous time. Apres ski at the Angel Bar is a must. Happy hour between 4 and 6pm when you can enjoy a mammoth jug of mulled wine for 11euros. Fab place with no down sides I can think of!!

Review 18/12/2006
Tignes is not the prettiest of places but linked well with a good ski area. The night life was quality however and Scotty’s bar underneath our hotel was meant to be one of the best in the resort and the rock n roll bands playing on both nights were different gear.
