In the mountains


This season lift passes are free for children under 8, and there are reduced rates for 8-18 year olds. A new high speed 6-seater chair lift called the Aiguille Rouge has been installed on the Plateau du Marais. It replaces the old chair lift that connects with the bubble up from Les Boisses, and will whisk skiers and boarders up to a viewing platform on the summit which is at 2415m. There are ski pass scanners for your lift passes at chair lifts, funiculars, gondolas etc.


The Palafou high speed toboggan ride that runs from the top of Palafour after the slopes have closed to skier and boarders has been renamed Expedition Cobra.


Evolution 2 is offering the Wild Nest experience where you can spend the night in a dome under the stars. A night-time snow-shoeing excursion, breakfast and a three course Savoyard dinner with wine are included. In addition are the Birthday afternoons for 4- 12 year olds. These include a snowshoe treasure hunt for younger children and a trapper challenge for older children, both ending with a reward of toasted marshmallows.


In resort


Looking at restaurants, Chez Juliane has replaced Bagus cafe in Tignes Le Lac. The owners of Escale Blanche have opened a new fine dining Italian restaurant in Le Lac called Julietta 23. It offers a four course Discover Italy menu as well as pizzas and a children's menu, and has great views of the lake. La Caleche restaurant has been replaced by Les Planches in Le Lac and offers wok dishes, fish and chips as well as fondues. Cocorico in Val Claret is no longer offering food at lunch time but opens mid afternoon for drinks and apres-ski. On the subject of apres-ski, the Terrachu Bar in Le Lac has been taken over by new owners and offers cosy seating overlooking the lake with some of the cheapest drinks prices in Le Lac!


Several new shops have opened up in Le Lac including a Beauty Shop and an art shop which offers hand made artisan products and paintings. The cheese shop, Fromagerie du Lac, has moved to smaller premises on Promenade de Toviere and in its place on Rue de la Poste is a large gift shop with a range of products from food, to candles and hoodies.


A private company called Indigeo has taken over the parking in Tignes. If you require parking, you can book a space in one of the car parks in Lavachet, Le Lac or Val Claret. This can be done directly online by visiting https://www.indigoneo.fr/fr Please note that parking in Brevieres is no longer free of charge.
