Tignes, 2008 report
On the slopes:
Quit your job and go to Tignes, now! :) The trip was great. There was a 50cm-1m snowfall in the first 2 days, which raised the risk of avalanches to a maximum level of 5 on a scale of 5, which meant that we couldn’t snowboard for half a day on Monday. After several hours and numerous controlled explosions one slope opened up. Things got better in the following days, with more and more slopes opening. By the end of the week most of the Espace Killy ski domain was open. The only “downside” was that we didn’t want to leave anymore, or at least stay another week :P One week seems just a teaser with so many slopes to cover.
In terms of accommodation, if you don’t mind a small room (4 beds in general) definitely give UCPA a try. They offer very good food and an overall extremely good value package at a low price.
