Tignes. Reviews, photo reports
“Doctor Jean”, an athlete and professor, about the resort: “..But this is the highest mountain base. Tignes, behind Val d’Isère. This is Lake Tignes. Frozen. in the middle. valley around it. Trails everywhere. Altitude up to 3600 meters. Trails above the sky.. The upper town – only the French are here (the French know a lot). Tignes has the biggest water park… I tried everything. And sledges and ice swimming (diving).” Photo album winter 2017. Below, under the mountain, snow is visible, which fell quite a lot during the night. Here, mostly professional athletes. The area around Tignes and Val d’Isère is a single area for recreation and sports. The photo shows the lift to the pass in the mountains, where the national park begins and the descent towards the resort of Val d’Isère. After a night snowfall, many cars were in the snow. It was necessary to dig them out, like this one, standing not far from the hotel. A snow-covered car is another argument in favor of using a transfer from the airport to the resort than renting a car. Hotel Diva is visible in the background. Modern, sporty, many people like it. Lift and Cardboard box – here they sell boarding tickets for the transporter (Ski pass). Just some kind of wooden hut, not a chalet. The alpine resort is considered to be a sports resort – professional tracks, infrastructure. Nevertheless, it is also great for families with children: animators, educators, children’s instructors.
“It snowed like this almost every night, and in the morning again clear skies and mountains of snow, many cars were covered in snowdrifts.”
