This winter, Tignes is celebrating Christmas in four stages! After the “Féerie de Noël” on 3 and 4 December 2016, the festivities continue on Sunday 18 December with the illumination of the giant Christmas tree, the Christmas Parade on Thursday 22 December then a visit from Father Christmas with chocolates being handed out on Saturday 24 December. What a magical week it will be!
On Sunday 18 December, there will be magic in the air! The giant Christmas tree installed on the snow front in Tignes le Lac at the beginning of December will be lit up for the first time. It will be a beautiful way to begin a week of festivities!
