In France 

Tignes France

Tignes, for his adrenaline concentrated

Thrills guaranteed in Tignes, the Alpine resort was paired with Val d’Isere to give birth to the Killy Espace. More than skiing on the 154 slopes, discover the bungee ride, a bungee jump with skies or snowboard on a springboard recoverd by snow. That propels you in the air to a jump of 40 meters. This activity will put your head upside down.

Font-Romeu, for its illuminated slope at night
