Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Tignes

Tignes Spirit
Tignes Spirit allows skiers to book online and have a specialised technician come out and fit you for boots and equipment in the comfort of your chalet.
Bellavarde
Bellavarde is home to a downhill piste that has been used in the Men's World Cup; as you can imagine, things get steep.
Percee
A needle of rock with a large hole worn through it, L'Aiguille Percée is perfect for off-piste enthusiasts and amateur geologists alike...
Grand Motte
Even the most seasoned skiers will find a slope to challenge their skills at Grand Motte.
Les Boisses
Les Boisses is a favourite in bad weather.
Top Runs
Go off-piste in Tignes with our selection of the slickest slopes out there.
Ecole du ski Français
Ecole du Ski Français specialises in off-piste skiing, and in Val d'Isere there's plenty of off-piste routes to sample.
Brévières
Brévières is less demanding than Percee and Grand Motte; tree thrills abound, with weaving encouraged.
Ice Driving
There's nothing more thrilling than skidding around the ice on four wheels; feel the rush.
New Generation
Brit-owned New Generation offers tuition for everyone, from beginners to advanced.
Parapente
Get a bird's-eye-view of Tignes with a paragliding flight. Book with Happyphyll; you're sure to be in safe hands.
Evolution Two
Evolution Two is one of the biggest ski schools in the French Alps; finally, a challenger to ESF.
Ice Diving
Forget skating on thin ice; dive beneath it at Tignes le Lac.
Bureau des Guides de Tignes
The Bureau des Guides de Tignes offers some of the best instruction in Tignes; its heli-skiing is particularly popular.
Melting Pot
The Melting Pot does exactly what it says on the tin with an eclectic music policy that has 'em queuing up outside.
Le Blue Girl
Le Blue Girl is euro trash at its very best; expect pop and a crowd of lively revelers until very, very late.
Couloir
Couloir claims to be the home of live music in Tignes, and we're not inclined to argue.
Le Caveau
Le Caveau is a must-visit for any visitor to Tignes, bringing both style and substance to the slopes.
L’Escale Blanche
Beyond the steaks and pizzas, L'Escale Blanche is actually one of the resort's most interesting eateries with fabulous fondue on the menu.
L’Arbina
L'Arbina is a hotel that's a perfect place for languid lunches and decadent dinners.
Village Montana
Village Montana is like a mini village, comprising two hotels, chalets, four restaurants, two bars and two spas; if it wasn't for the slopes, there'd be no reason to leave.
Nevada
A four-star gem in the centre of Val Claret, Nevada is one of the resort's super-stays.
Hotel L’Ecrin
Hotel L'Ecrin offers a resort-style experience just a snowball's throw away from the slopes.
Chalet de le Cloche
Chalet de la Cloche is among the top ten best ski chalets in the Alps, and it's not hard to see why.
Campanules
Opened in the 1950s, Campanules has stood the test of time to be one of the resort's most established hotels.
Grizzly’s Bar
Prices may be sky-high at Grizzly's Bar, but it's worth it for the experience alone. Which is unique, to say the least.
