Tignes Spirit:

Tignes Spirit is an independent ski & snowboard company with a snowboard / ski shop and workshop based in Le Lavachet but also an accommodation division that provides weekly and seasonal apartment rental, arranges transfers and anything else you might need for a great holiday in Tignes. Setup by three long term friends, in 2005 they started up an unique Mobile Snowboard Hire company for their guests and as well as working from the shop they still deliver your snowboards or skis to you at your chalet or apartment on arrival and give you a personal fitting with one of their technicians. They then come and collect the equipment from you at the end of the week – this is a great service which we know our guests really apreciate, leaving you more time to concentrate on settling into the lodge or apartment and getting more time out on the slopes. Of course they also provide excellent quality equipment including Endeavor & Signal snowboards which we ride and endorse at the lodge – and offer great ski & snowboard servicing, tuning and repairs at their fully equipped workshop. As well as the great deal on equipment they’re offering for these two weeks Dragon Lodge guests get 30% off equipment rental at any time during the season which can be booked directly with them via our unique link here dragonlodge.com/equipment-hire/


Tignes.co.uk is possibly the ultimate one stop destination for all info and services you might need about Tignes. Successfully running and growing since 2002 Their website has a wealth of info about Tignes – they specialise in providing accommodation from self catered apartments to catered chalets and hotels, working with the best independent accommodation providers in the resort…including Dragon Lodge of course. They also have an airport transfer service which we use and recommend, and can also arrange equipment hire, lessons, guiding, childcare services and pretty much anything else you can think of or might need on a winter or summer holiday in Tignes.

Over the years they have gained vast local knowledge enabling them to share this information with their customers so they get the most from their holiday.
