What’s New in Tignes for 2019/20

Situated in the massive Espace Killy ski area, Tignes is always a popular choice with British skiers. Never a ski resort to stand still, there is plenty to take on this winter in this French resort:

Ice Diving

Tignes is one of the only places in France that you can try such a magical underwater experience. Enjoy a silent dive in a unique environment created by the air bubbles running along the surface of the ice.

This winter divers can enjoy up to 45 minutes under the water (instead of the usual 20 minutes) with the highest diving school in Europe.

European Snow Pride

Taking place from 14-21 March 2020, European Snow Pride is one of the biggest gay ski weeks in the Alps.

Every day you can enjoy on-slope après ski with DJs, singers, saxophonists, percussionists and performers, a giant pool party, fancy dress and the official Pride Party at Tignespace.

The European Snow Pride has become an absolute must for the LGBT community.

APEX2100 – A new International Ski Academy

This November the APEX2100 will open its doors to the best international hopefuls in Alpine skiing.

Open to children aged 9 to 18, this new training centre hopes to produce a new generation of elite skiers, by offering a unique approach to learning, training and performance.

Rugby World Cup winning coach, Sir Clive Woodward, will act as Sports Director at APEX2100:

“A team of doctors and highly skilled healthcare professionals will be responsible for sleep, nutrition, recovery and mental status. We have also carefully selected our accommodation managers, whose role it is to take care of both children and teenagers. Students will benefit from top sports facilities and connected watches to monitor their fatigue.”

From the 2020/2021 season APEX2100 will add a 4-star hotel on the upper floors of their building. The 72 rooms and spa will generate revenue and will contribute to scholarships for sports students unable to afford a year at the Academy.

Live in Tignes by Francofolies

This live festival from 21-23 April 2020 features three-days of concerts on slope and in resort.

A winter version of the famous ‘Francofolies de la Rochelle’, this year, ‘Live in Tignes by Francofolies’ means free concerts with key artists, such as Synapson and Charlie Winston.

It’s the Soap Box Derby

The 5th edition of Tignes’ Soap Box Derby takes place on 02 April 2020.

It’s the ideal opportunity for crazy drivers to take on a challenging course strewn with woops, kickers and banked corners.

Enjoy a hilarious afternoon full of epic wipe-outs and one eventual winner!
