Bank Holiday Blast - 27 April 2017 to 01 May 2017

If you spend the last weeks of the season thinking about whether to get one more trip in, then the Tignes Bank Holiday Blast is the answer.
I was expecting ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon but needn't have worried. We had a big dump on Thursday evening which carried on through half of Friday when the sun came out. We therefore had deep fresh powder on piste which was great.
Saturday and Sunday were superb, both piste and off-piste, in perfect sunshine and hardly anyone around, with only a hint of slush on Sunday. We were up and down Grande Motte like kids on our favourite slide.
Monday (1st May!) was another big dump, but this time with poor vis - by this time it hardly mattered as we finished skiing at 2:00pm.
Chenko, our instructor, assured us it was like this every year so I can thoroughly recommend that you stop hesitating in April and come along. Long sunny days with winter snow and no queues- it honestly doesn't get much better than this.
