 Tignes and Val d'Isere - the perfect combination of powder and terrain park?


 
Do you often feel like riding and freestyling during off-season? Well I have a solution for you! Check out the glacier snowpark in Tignes! The park features 9 hits lots of rails and several boxes. Of course the glacier terrain park can't keep up with the other terrain parks in Tignes and Val d'Isere but is certainly worth checking out during pre-season. And once the winter-riding season begins riders are provided with two stunning terrain parks, ValPark in Val d'Isere and the Swatch Park in Tignes. ValPark features three separate runs with park features, designated for the different ability levels. Apart from the obligatory rails, jumps and boxes the park features a boardercross and a spezial rail line. And if you need a break the Chill Chalet offers BBQ and if you are lucky you can meet some hot snow girls or boys.
 
In the Tignes Swatch Park the obstacles are classified according to difficulty, it is therefore comparable to the Valpark. However unlike the Valpark, there are neither boardercross nor a rail line to be found in the Swatchpark and it is of smaller size. But Tignes and Val D'Isere are highly desired destinations among boarders not only because of the snowparks. The outback possibilities are legendary and certainly among the best to be found in France. The majority of the resort is above the tree line which makes free-skiing so much more desirable and fun. However those looking for rustic and cosy alpine charm as found in many Austrian and Swiss resorts will leave empty handed. Multi-story buildings and functional architecture dominate the valleys. And whoever is not put off by the high price level for food and beverages can spend an incredible vacation in powder and snowparks!
