What you'll do

High up in the Tarentaise Valley in the heart of the French Alps is the lofty ski resort of Tignes. With its skiable area topping 3,456 meters above sea level, the resort is the highest skiable area in Europe. Tignes boasts long runs that last a lifetime, snow-sure conditions due to its lofty attitude, and impressive frosty landscapes populated with rugged peaks. Its huge 300 kilometers of terrain is shared with the neighboring resort of Val d’Isere. This trip is designed for skiers who have already mastered the groomed runs and are seeking fresher challenges among the wilder, off-piste slopes. The best way to delve into this new terrain is with a certified instructor, who is trained in the risks involved, and who can keep you in safe hands. Fast and efficient lifts will soon get us to the heady heights of Tignes. From there we will drop down into a bowl filled with fantastic untouched powder. This is followed by some speedy verticals and tight turns. Around noon I’ll lead you to a cool and quiet spot that is perfect for a group picnic. We’ll unbind and relax, taking in the picturesque scenery that surrounds us. If you are in a group of 3 or more then contact me to hear about an interesting discount.
