Hi there native folk

Just a quick question about Tignes. I'm taking a holiday there at the start of March and really contemplating staying out there for a bit longer, kipping on my mate's floor, maybe a take a job if i can find one..

I was in meribel last season with Inghams all season long and it seemed like there were constantly people looking for workers, is this the case too in Tignes? Is it a large resort too? Would I have better luck in Val D, Is it easy to get to, is it bigger? am i abnormally preoccupied with size comparisons?


thankyou for your help

Tignes has less chalets in than Meribel or Val, but there is always a chance somebody will be ill or want to go home, or break a leg or something and a job will come up. similarly bar work or something - you just never know. BUT there are significatly less chalets in Tignes than the other two so might be worth taking that into consideration if you stay......

rock on.
