I went to Tignes from 3-10 of April and was amazed with the snow and resort itself. Tignes is not ugly as everybody is saying: pure concrete and stuff. There is no concrete as such, purpose built blocks are covered in wood and white facade and when looked from afar is impressive (those buildings work well with peaks surrounding them). Anyway, with global warming, in order to save space, we will see more of those as the skiing area shrinks. Snow is brilliant; plenty of it everywhere. Not many cannons to be seen there. In Val D'Isere area, closer to the village, it was going a bit sloshed but Tignes was mad with snow. Best skiing in Europe!
