Do you want to improve your off piste skiing this season? Then why not join us in Tignes? one of the world’s most iconic freeride destinations! With fantastic terrain, Tignes is the perfect location to improve and develop your off piste skills with the help of some great local instructors.
ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
The holiday includes six full days of off piste skiing with an instructor. This holiday is for Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) Off Piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski profile, please see our Ski Profile Page. Groups will be organised based on ski level, and there will be up to 6 members in each group. At the end of the week you will receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
Please be aware that you may be required to do some ski touring on this off piste holiday. Where possible the lift system will be used to access off piste terrain, however if you need to venture a bit further afield in order to access the best off piste conditions then your instructor may suggest ski touring. This will all be dependent upon the conditions and the instructor you have on your trip. As this is one of our larger holidays, there may be a group of members that do not want to participate in ski touring. If you would like to be in this group, please inform your Ski Club Rep at the beginning of the holiday.
You will be staying at the Ski World run Ski Lodge Aigle which is situated approximately 140m from the slopes in Tignes Le Lac. In the morning you are around a 5-minute walk (downhill!) from the Chaudanne and Paquis lifts, and in the afternoon, you can ski straight back to the Lodge.
You will share your en-suite room with one other Freshtracks member during your stay. With access to an indoor pool, sauna and bar/ living area, there will be plenty of space for you to relax in the evenings! single rooms may be available upon request. These are subject to our hotel room allowance. If you require a single room, please book early to avoid disappointment.
Your stay at the Ski Lodge Aigle will be on a Lodge Board basis. This will consist of breakfast each morning, afternoon tea once you get back from your day on the slopes, and a 4-course evening meal (including wine) 6 nights a week. The chalet staff will have one night off during your stay, and this will give you the opportunity to explore the local cuisine in Tignes! As part of the Ski Club group you will also have your own €70 bar credit to be used during your stay at the Aigle.
