If you are looking for snow sure resorts to ski, Tignes is for you - you can even ski in the glacier in August! It was designed more for convenience than style but the surrounding scenery more than makes up for the town. There are three main areas: Val Claret is the closest to the Grand Motte and Le Lac and Lavachet on the other side of the lake are virtually interconnected now - an efficient shuttle bus links all three until midnight. Tignes is connected to Val D'Isere and together they make up the Espace Killy ski domain.
