So, you’ve read our ‘Service Levels on your Luxury Ski Chalet Holiday to the Alps’ blog and decided that a luxury catered ski holiday is best suited to your group’s needs and requirements…but which ski resort is best for your luxury ski holiday in the French Alps? With our portfolio featuring a plethora of luxury chalets in L’Espace Killy, let me take the pleasure in introducing you to Tignes best catered ski chalets…
Widely regarded as one of the best ski regions in the Alps, due to its high altitude and unbeatable snow record, Tignes provides the perfect setting for a luxury catered ski holiday to the French Alps. Split into Val Claret, Le Lac, Lavachet and Les Brevieres, this superb resort partners with neighbouring Val d’Isere ski resort, to form the infamous L’Espace Killy ski region – appropriately named after Winter Olympic gold medallist, Jean-Claude Killy.
Offering a selection of slopes, more suited to intermediate and hardcore skiers, you will be able to experience the thrill and adrenaline rush down Tignes’ numerous black runs. Tignes is said to have some of the most difficult black runs in the Alps, which is why it features in our Top 5 Ski Resorts for Black Run Skiing. For any of you wishing to make the transition from intermediate to advanced skier to trial Tignes black ski runs for yourselves, our blog ‘Intermediate Skiing Tips and Advice to Progress Beyond Intermediate’, will provide you with all the assistance you require.
