Husky Sleighs Tignes Le Lac

Continuing on with things to do in Tignes Le Lac when the conditions are less than good, we decided to try Husky Sleigh riding. We had been warned by others that the dogs tend to go to the toilet on the run but fortunately the Sleigh Driver was aware of the potential difficulties this might present to the riders. He was able to anticipate the dog’s requirements and put the brakes on just in time. Two uses for the shovel then!

The guy who runs the dog teams really knows and loves his dogs and they all had a brilliant time in the deep snow. I wouldn’t normally leave the piste but as the weather was so foul there was little fun in skiing. If you go to Tignes, you should try this.

 

Ice Diving Tignes Le Lac

Hi. We have just returned from Skiing in Tignes. I thought this was an interesting diversion. The weather was going sideways and it was a difficult skiing day so we thought we might try Diving under the ice at the lake in Tignes. The people running the operation are very professional and the instruction was top class. Safety lines are in place and the equipment was top notch. As diving instructors ourselves we didn’t think it would be particularly challenging and it wasn’t. You don’t have to be a qualified diver or even have any diving experience. The instructor will keep hold of you , operate all of your equipment and carry you through the dive. Just relax and enjoy the view. I was even consulted on Drysuit repairs whilst I was there.
