Outstanding ski and sbowboard terrain, on and off piste
A lack of nightlife and village atmosphere you would get in non purpose built resorts

Full review

My first ever trip was to Tignes, in 2015. I have since visited numerous resorts and towns around France, returning to Tignes last spring, as an intermediate snowboarder. The 300km of linked pistes make for a huge amount of varied skiing/boarding. I stayed at Tignes 2100 on my first ever stay which was a great hotel with excellent food and drinks however this was all inclusive and the prices for those not staying were high. My second visit was in a self-catered apartment block in Val Claret. I actually preferred the bars in Val Claret as well as the ease of access for the G Motte. I have visited most of the biggest linked French ski areas (3V, Espace Killy, PDS) as well as some other areas such as Chamonix valley. Tignes/Val is my favourite, predominantly due to the sheer amount of lift accessible off piste which is truly endless and true ski in/out, particularly for Val Claret. If you want a village atmosphere and great bar, shop + restaurant choices then I'd give it a miss or stay in Val.
