As the leaves continue to sprinkle the sidewalk like an auburn rain, fall says its final goodbye before surrendering the year to the cold grasp of winter. Marked by short days and cold temperatures, for many people winter is nothing more than an opportunity to catch-up on sleep while waiting for spring. There is much more to the season than this though, and people that choose to hibernate through the winter months have obviously never done something in the true spirit of the season, such as a ski holiday in France in the Tignes. While winter sports like skiing aren’t for everyone, if you enjoy them or have yet to try, skiing in the Alps is a sure-fire way to turn a drab winter into an unforgettable time
Skiing in Tignes France
There are any number of places that you can go to hit the Alpine slopes, but a ski holiday is about more than just runs and lifts. Basking in the beautiful mountain scenery, soaking up the culture of the quaint villages, and of course lounging by a warm fire in your own ski chalet are all quintessential pieces of the experience. Tignes France is an excellent place to enjoy all of this and more. Located on the eastern border of France, Tignes is made up of 5 villages. Loosely associated with the nearby Val d’lsere, they form the “Espace Killy” ski area. Skiing the Espace Killy has always been a well-known destination for avid skiers, but it gained more widespread international attention after the area was used as the freestyle skiing venue in the 1992 Winter Olympic Games.
Ski Chalets and Apartments
After a long day on the slopes, coming back to a comfortable place to put your feet up and enjoy a nice meal can often be the highlight of an already amazing trip. From twenty bedroom chalets with amenities fit for a king, to quaint ski apartments for a more intimate vacation and everything in between, Tignes France has them all. Put together the perfect combination of ski, culture, and relaxation to make every winter the highlight of your year. After a ski holiday in France, you’ll dread the day that the summer sun decides to shine, closing the curtains on your perfect winter wonderland. More on Ski Chalet
