  #1  Tignes. Help!!  Posted 05/03/2019 @ 12:25
Revision #1 (Last edited: 05/03/2019 @ 12:27)
Driving over to Sainte Foy next week and staying at Residence club mmv l'etoile des cimes for a long weekend boarding. Will be driving into Tignes les brevieres each day to park. How easy is it to get over to Val Claret, either by bus or lift system? Or failing that is it easy enough to find cheap parking each day in Avalon Claret?

Cheers

From Brevs, just take the very fast new gondola to 1800.
That then links to the Boisses gondola and from the top of that the fastest lift to Lac is via the facing Aiguille Rouge chair. From the top you have the option of red or blue run for the descent to Lac.
Give yourself 20-30 mins to get to Lac.

You can also catch a bus from 1800 by travelling up the 2 tunnel/escalator lifts and hope to time the .15/.45 bus departure from the roundabout......runs every 30 mins.
Would not bother with that.

From Lac you have options on getting to Val Claret via the lifts or free bus.
Personally, I'd hit the red from the top of the Aiguille Rouge chair (towards Chaudannes chair) then way down take a sharp left to head towards Lavachet and grab the Paquis lift up, then descend Piste H directly into Val Claret.

Make sure to check the closing times of the Chaudannes (17:00) and Aiguille Percee (16:45?) chairs for the home run.
