You’re gracefully gliding down a ski piste’s perfectly crunchy snow followed by the laughter of your cheerful brood on their adorably tiny skis. Next thing you know, a bunch of teenagers are expertly racing you down the slopes shouting: “C’mon mum, you’re slow!” as they overtake you. It need not be just a dream. Why wait to introduce your little ones to your favourite winter sport, when the Alpine ski resort of Tignes offers the perfect conditions for you and your children to have a truly unforgettable skiing adventure? Renowned for its wide range of family-friendly catered ski chalets, Tignes provides you with the comfort you’ve always dreamed of and gives your children a veritable fairytale experience. Accommodation in Tignes is also located close to the ski pistes, which saves you the trouble of arduous transport arrangements and puts you within spitting distance of your favourite winter sport. There are a number of ski schools in town offering skiing lessons in English to children as young as three years of age. There are even ski nurseries for the youngest future skiing champions. Courses for older children are organised according to their age and skiing level. Should you decide that perhaps it’s too early to introduce little Timmy to skiing, this doesn’t mean you should forgo the pistes too. Tignes has a number of expert daycare services, which will keep your beloved tots entertained and content while you’re exploring the slopes. For those whose little ones are disinclined to go to bed early, it’s worth knowing that Tignes has a wide range of activities after the pistes close. Little animal lovers are guaranteed to have fun on a husky ride along the Boisses plateau with your own expert musher. Another activity for romantics easily combined with a great family experience is skating on Tignes’ spectacular frozen lake. What’s more, purchasing a lift pass allows you to skate to your heart’s content for free. Or perhaps, after a day spent on the pistes, your family would prefer some indoor evening activities. Swimming lengths or simply relaxing in the pools of Le Lagon Sports Centre will recharge your batteries for the next skiing day and will provide yet another source of delight for your children. Climbing the wall in Tignes Le Lac on the other hand is a great indoor way to supplement your outdoor daily adrenaline levels, should you have any extra energy to spare. In Tignes Le Lac there are also bowling and pool facilities providing great opportunities for fun family games in the evening. Whether you and your family are ardent skiers, admirers of picturesque snowy landscapes or lovers of cosy catered ski chalets, Tignes is the perfect destination for your winter holiday. Skiing, skating, and exploring nature are only a small portion of the fascinating experiences you and your family will always remember with fondness. |
