Ski Club Holiday to Tignes, France

Tour Operator: Crystal

Resort information from the Crystal web site:

Tignes is a world-class resort made up of five small villages. Set high in the magnificent Savoie Alps, it’s got guaranteed snow, a lively après scene and some of Europe’s best slopes. It’s a purpose-built resort, so it lacks some of the old-world charm enjoyed by its neighbours, but the variety of chalets, hotels and apartments to suit all budgets more than makes up for that. Best of all, Tignes is part of the Espace Killy ski area, so you get to enjoy glaciers and great views, without the Val d’Isère price tag.

Tignes is an ideal resort for groups as there’s a busy après scene with many bars and restaurants to choose from. Families love Tignes as it provides child-friendly entertainment, such as swimming pools and ice skating rinks. There are plenty of family-focused hotels and good quality ski schools to help the kids master the basics.
