Hitting the slopes

After a long day on the slopes, there’s no better way to unwind than by taking advantage of the Tignes Val Claret’s Über relaxing sauna, Turkish bath or Club Med Spa. Whether it’s simply soaking your wearisome feet in some soothing water, or enjoying a peaceful massage to relive some tension in your tired muscles, there are several opportunities to help you arrive at dinner in a state of total relaxation.
