    Yep still planning the next leg of the journey!

    Does anyone know of a site near Tignes that is open in winter?

    I know of the wild camping at la Brev at the bottom but is there a site with power near by in winter? The closest I can find is in Bourg but that's a long hack every day in snow / chains / etc.

    In main season a lot mor resorts have good options but for early season skiing it's got to be Tignes.

    Any help most welcome.

    Thanks

    Justin

    You should also consider Val Thorens and Les Meniures for early season skiing too!

    Both have aires, although Les Meniures has hookup and is cheaper. Both resorts are linked by lifts.:thumb:

    In both cases, the aires are ski in, ski out.

    I was looking at that one last night, think we'll check it out this year I love Tignes and Val D Isère. Also gonna visit La Plagne and maybe a couple of lesser known ski resorts as well. We will probably leave last week of Feb and go for 3 or 4 weeks. :thumb::thumb:
