Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Tignes

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...
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.
Top Runs
Go off-piste in Tignes with our selection of the slickest slopes out there.
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.
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.
Yoga with Altitude
There's nothing quite like a spot of yoga to keep you feeling centred; enjoy on the mountain for best results.
Ice Driving
There's nothing more thrilling than skidding around the ice on four wheels; feel the rush.

A spa with, er, altitude; the in-house spa at the Hotel des Campanules offers facials, massages and a slew of other treatments to keep you you feeling fresh.
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.
