Great vlaue - 11/04/2011

Maybe we were lucky, being among the first visitors, but we had a terrific week at Chalet Cairn. The chalet was clean, comfortable and well-located. It was a short, easy, slightly-downhill walk to the centre and lifts, then possible to ski back to the other side of the road at the end of the morning or day. Staff were outstanding hosts - helpful, friendly and skilled cooks. There were lifts heading off in several directions, so Tignes-le-Lac proved a great centre. We had no trouble covering all the terrain from the far side of Val d'Isere to the lower slopes of Tignes in a week. Highly recommended.

Apres Ski: 3/5

Tignes delivers just what it says on the Tignes - 28/03/2011

I've just returned from another foray to the Espace Killy but this time I stayed up at Tignes Le Lac rather than down in Val d'Isére. It's a very different resort. I loved being able to get higher quicker in the mornings and being able to ski back to within 50m of my chalet. I found the best après ski bars were up in Val Claret but it is an easy bus ride back to Le lac after the sun goes down. This season was supposed to be one of poor snow. Well I beg to differ. I did 2 new back country routes that I haven't been able to do in the past and knee deep powder was found on Grande Motte. It was sunny all week but it stayed cold enough to save the snow and the piste was in magnificent fast carving form. My number one recommendation is to book for the restaurant Clin d'Oeil on the main strip. This place is small, cosy and actually serves cracking food. Unless you love fondue, that is pretty had to find in most resorts. I can also report that the Tartiflette in La Trifollette above la Daille but below Folie Douce between the Green and Red pistes is the best in the region. I still favour Val d'Isére because of the nightlife but if you are into cheaper skiing and faster access to higher slopes then Tignes ticks those boxes admirably.
