3,2,1 SNOW! Tignes & Val d’Isere Open For Winter 2017/18

Starting how we hope it’s going to carry on, the opening weekend of Tignes and Val d’Isere ski area featured heavy snowfall followed by bluebird skiing. Here’s our Facebook LIVE video showing the snow dances worked as we delivered hundreds of Edge Magazines around resorts!

The sun made an appearance as we arrived in Val d’Isere later on the Saturday and anyone lucky enough to be on the slopes had a pretty idyllic setting all to themselves. Beautiful white, quiet slopes (except for the dogs as you can see in this Facebook LIVE video):

What’s the perfect way to end a snow day in Val d’Isere? Cosy up in Restaurant 1789 and tuck into their famous cote de boeuf cooked on the open fire, followed by a drink in Le Petit Danois of course!

Sunday offered a stunning sunny day to slide across the ski area, though it was bitterly cold! The link between the two resorts was open, patchy in parts but lovely snow. If these pictures don’t make you want to immediately book yourself on a ski trip over here, nothing will!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A lunchtime galette in Tignes Le Lac’s Creperie Bretonne set us up for the day, and an apres drink in the Marmot Arms bar finished the weekend nicely.
