Spring is not the end of winter : discover May skiing in Tignes.


They have a saying : in may, do as you please… What if what pleases you is to go skiing ? In  May ? Well, nothing wrong with that. Especially since our beautiful ski resorts in the Alps have the best of spring skiing : from Austria to Switzerland, from Italy to France, there are numerous Glaciers and they are well equipped. But most of all, spring skiing is often the occasion to get very good snow, avoid bad weather and get the best deals to treat yourself with a nice skiing escapade. Like in Tignes for French Labor Day week-end, from the 1st the the 5th of May.

Oh yes, Tignes is kind of the Champion of good deals. A nice well groomed glacier, a young and dynamic management team to run the resort and propose extraordinary events, amazing athletes like Guerlain Chicherit or our Half Pipe Skiing Olympic Vice-Champion, Wed’ze technical partner and golden heart rocker Marie Martinod, Tignes blows the wind of craziness and pushes us to always enjoy skiing.

And in Tignes, May is the month of joy and fun. And not only on skis. Indeed, from the 1st to the 5th of May Tignes is the venue for the Black Shoes event, a gathering of telemark skiers during which the main goal for everyone is to have fun and meet new people around a common passion of hobby. On the pistes, on the sound of music, during a derby course or a hot chocolate break, all you need is to glide with fun and joy. To try out telemark skiing, to test new gear, or just to be there and enjoy your sport with other passionates, as well as good snow, music gigs, and all the animations of the event.
