Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Tignes at Easter

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Morning all, after many years of Val Thorens the family fancy a change and are thinking of Tignes. Know the resort well but wondering how busy it is likely to be over Easter, specifically 11-18 April when Uk schools, French B and C zones and the Belgians are also on holiday? We can unfortunately only go that week, having managed for past years to dodge the peak Easter weeks.
Cheers.

I’ve typically ended the season with a week at Easter at either Tignes or Val D for the past 10 years and my experience has been very positive. French don’t seem to be that interested in going skiing at Easter and I don’t believe Good Friday is a public holiday. With a lift system as efficient as the one in this part of the Alps queues haven’t really been a problem and snow has always been reliable.

Been there in April 2018 at Easter, Tignes Le Lac. Wasn't too crowded, would have returned this year too if not for the EOSB.

@snowhound, mid April usually good snow across the whole area. Spreads people around. Lift system copes well. Not what I’d call quiet at Easter but not crazy busy.

i was in Le Lac for 2 weeks over Easter this year.
i think its the best time of year to ski. You know you can ski safely off piste and you know exactly what type of snow youll get and where youll get it. Its warm and not busy

Sorry for hijack, we are considering Tignes Le Lac for Easter ski 2020 from Fri 3 - 10 April. Any recommendations, stay away, etc. Got 2 kids so need at least one bedroom and easy access to ski school.
Many thanks for any replies.

@Dougie, IMHO the best location in Tignes Le Lac is in the area of hotel Le Levanna. Bus stop right there (if you'll gloriously end your day in Val Claret for a good apres), 2 supermarkets really close (SPAR on the same street). New indoor parking (payable) nearby, good restaurants, pub (LOOP)and bakery on the street and close to a quality rental, Le Vallon Blanc.
But most important: 2 major lifts taking you up to 2 opposing peaks.
Besides the quite expensive hotel, there are rentals in the buildings on that street. Check Booking, Airbnb etc
For example, for a week I am searching: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/15489293?location=Tignes%2C%20France&adults=2&check_in=2019-12-14&check_out=2019-12-21&guests=1&source_impression_id=p3_1558327421_lLWmd13TK52RQVFV&s=4c-_Th8P

@drporat, Thanks for that. It looks like a nice place. Great advice about amenities near by as well. Will help when looking at other places. Cheers

 You know it makes sense.

@snowhound, its very close to ski in/out but you will have a few metres walk as the door is street side not piste side. Wiggle round the lower end of Club Med.

It wasn't very busy anywhere this Easter. Next year it is earlier, but most people don't think of skiing after the end of March.
