The resort deploys substantial resources to facilitate the champions’ high altitude preparation: top quality logistics, accommodation and sports facilities to match their performances.
The athletes’ program: jogging around the lake, bodybuilding or swimming in the Lagon, practicing at the stadiums, mountain biking, skiing... to each one their share of tailored sporting activities "Made in Tignes" to prepare themselves.
It is in the 1500m² team sports area but also on the athletics track (80m Tartan running track, high jump and long jump) that sportsmen and women will come together in Tignes. They will also be able to challenge themselves in the two sports halls where they can enjoy a whole host of activities such as dance, music, yoga, boxing and martial arts. Or perhaps try out the gym, the three squash courts and the climbing wall designed to host official national competitions.
At the Lagon (lagoon)
Muscle awakening, conditioning, recovery, swimming and bodybuilding. Inaugurated in 2006, the Lagon is 5 000 square meters of sports and water spaces with a swimming pool and wellness and fitness spaces bodybuilding rooms equipped with state-of-the-art devices. Located near the lake in the centre of Tignes a few strides away from the hotels where the athletes are housed, the Lagon is the perfect complement to their altitude physical preparation.
On the stadiums
Training, matches, endurance.
The stade "Eric Cantona" (stadium) created ten years ago underwent a real facelift in 2008: complete overhaul of the infrastructure and drainage system, restoration of the natural lawn... and a brand new sports ground for optimal training.
Made in Tignes and 100% synthetic, the stade "Fabien Galthié" (stadium) was created during the summer 2008 next to the natural football field at 2100 meters above the sea level. Made of last generation artificial grass, this 50 m X 70 m sports ground can be used earlier in the spring, and longer in early winter.
