We went to Tignes and stayed in the Hotel Village Montana. Tignes is excellent for beginners and experienced skiers alike. There are loads of ski lifts from Tignes le Lac centre so there are never any queues. We used ESF ski school which we were pleased with. Restaurants in the resort are generally poor so opt for the half board option at the hotel. Having been to Val D'Isere, Courchevel, St Anton and Crans Montana, we thought this was the best. Tignes has a trendy vibe, just enough English people and it is not too Chelsea in the Alps!
