Summer in Tignes

We have returned to Tignes for our annual summer camp and ten days on the glacier. We're on day four and have had four excellent days of GS training.
The glacier looked worse for wear when we arrived but this was just the view from the bottom. When we got up there, the conditions were great for training. It's a pretty short ride up to the glacier (about 10 minutes) on the funicular.

Great panoramic view from the top of our training piste

One of the advantages of Tignes is the off snow activities during the summer, many of which are free! with an activity card from your accommodation provider. So far we have used the pool, archery, mini golf and are looking at kayaking on the lake and the water jump and new blob jump.

Stunning view to Val Claret across the lake

We have another two days of GS training left and will then run slalom. The trainees return home on the 9th and I then head off to Aosta to sort out some details for our winter programme there.
