Tignes Full opening?

Greetings all - can anyone say from past experience when Tignes usually opens up the full area - once they have the conditions of course. Looking around all the webcams currently it does appear to be extensively covered in the white stuff, but I note from the interactive piste map there are still a lot of higher areas closed - eg the Borsat lift area, The de Fresse lift, the area of the Genepy run from the glacier back to Val Claret.
Just wondered when they usually get up to full speed?

As soon as they're able to.

Snow cover's the deciding factor, of course, and that's particularly the case for the few glacier runs where there are crevasses near (and occasionally under!) the piste that need to be fully covered to be safe.

Looking pretty good right now though, and more snow on the way, but the tourist office website will always have the very latest.
