Am thinking on spending the Christmas week in Tignes (staying in Les Brevieres). Does anyone have a view if snow is a safe bet there at that time of year?

Snow's never guaranteed until it's on the ground, of course, but if there's no snow in Tignes at Xmas then we'll all be in trouble...

Worst case is that the runs down to Les Brevieres aren't open and you have to get the gondola or bus down, but Xmas week you've probably got as much chance of them shutting the runs due to too much snow...

This is what Tignes (Lac and Lavachet) looked like by the first week of January last winter...

Tignes - The Digging out begins!

Pretty much everyone will be hoping for a little less snow at Xmas/New Year this time around. Last season was exceptional but no snow at Xmas would be even more so (for Tignes).

We skied Tignes mid December last year and skied all the way down to Les Brev with no problems!!! As mentioned - the biggest issue was always to much snow!!! Going again this year - doing the week over Christmas and I've no worries that the snow will be plentiful by then!!!
