What is the skiing like in Tignes for beginners?
Tignes is a good resort for first-time skiers, with 4 dedicated beginner areas, although the nursery slopes of Le Lac and Le Lavachet are the best two for beginners. Whilst Tignes does have some gentle blue runs, they are not particularly well connected and beginners may find skiing in nearby Val d’Isère is more enjoyable.
