Great news! We are delighted to announce that Chalet Pramacou in Tignes Le Lac is now part of our iGOSKi program (http://www.igoski.co.uk/accommodation/ski-tignes/chalet-hotel-le-pramecou.html). Tignes is part of the legendary Espace Killy ski area and is famous for its electric atmosphere. This ski resort is frequently named as one of the best places to ski in the world and is well known by any winter sports enthusiast.
“We are incredibly excited about this addition to our program. It reinforces our mission to continually provide guests with convenient and good value ski weekend packages. Skiers will benefit from 4 days skiing in one of the best ski areas in the world with the convenience of taking only 2 days off work. Not to mention the snow guaranteed in this super high resort.” – says Mike Everett, iGOSKi Sales Director. Booking a Wednesday to Sunday weekend or a Sunday to Wednesday midweek break in one of our favorite high altitude ski resorts means guaranteed fun, snow and great skiing for all. Tignes is a must for anyone with a passion for skiing! It’s home to the finest ski-able glacier in Europe - the Grand Motte - which even offers summer skiing, not to mention the greatest snow record in the European Alps. Expect excellent nightlife and après-ski scene, combined with superb powder snow.
Tignes sits at 2200m high, so it is always caked in snow! Our chalet-hotel is right in the heart of the action at Tignes le Lac, almost ski-to-door. It benefits from ensuite bedrooms with a pleasant and airy feel to them. Many have great views of the mountains and slopes. Our package comes with half board, which is totally hassle free! There is no rush or stress involved in booking tables after a long day skiing. The bread is delivered daily for breakfast by the local boulangerie and our salads and herbs come fresh from the market. Main courses and desserts are elaborated and cooked to the highest standards. The Pramecou has a lovely bright and airy restaurant with great views of the slopes. Guests can take advantage of a reduced price wine list. The friendly bar is fully licensed and serves draft beers, wines, spirits, good coffees and hot chocolates all day. With an open fireplace, small games room and sofa seating, the area provides a pleasant social hub in which to meet before or after dinner.

Snow in Val Thorens, Meribel, Courchevel and the rest of the Trois Valees is expected on Thursday and Friday this week. In La Tania, the freezing altitude is expected to be as low as 950m, and wind assisted temps of -20˚C are forecast.
The Portes du Soleil resorts of Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets are also expecting snow falls at the end of this week, with the freezing altitude dropping below 1000m. Slightly lower wind speeds will mean the wind chill factor won't be as strong here; though -18˚C is still on the cards![caption id="attachment_2669" align="aligncenter" width="650" caption="More snow forecast to hit the Alps this week.
