It is always so fun and touching to observe children when December is getting closer... Hardworking while they write their letter to Father Christmas, guilty when they finish up their Advent calendar in just a few days (hours?)... and overexcited when you tell them they will spend their Christmas holiday surrounded by snowflakes this year!
Every December 24th, enjoy an enchanted "après-ski" that will get stars to sparkle in the eyes of all Christmas spirit lovers: torchlight descents, Father Christmas parade, distribution of chocolates, show and fireworks!
What could be more magical than spending your Christmas holidays in the mountains, under the snow? Your children will be amazed by this unique setting and will remember for a long time to come these holidays with Father Christmas in the middle of the mountains!

Numerous Christmas decorations dress up the resort and the tourist offices throughout the month of December!
At the Maison de Tignes le Lac, come and admire the scene of the automatons staging the Christmas festivities. Pass in front of the tree richly decorated for the occasion and drop a letter in Father Christmas' letterbox!
Stroll through the different districts of Tignes and discover with wonder the luminous trees installed in the districts, and in particular the 6-metre high one near the #TIGNES lettering on the lakefront. A luminous deer located in front of the Maison de Tignes le Lac, or the various decorations installed everywhere will plunge you into a magical atmosphere.
You will be able to get in the mood and wait serenely (not without a certain impatience) for the evening of December 24th and the opening of the presents on the 25th in the morning!
