Secrets of Tignards: why is spring the locals' favorite season?

Secrets of Tignards: why is spring the locals' favorite season?

There are fans of the Christmas ski holidays. Those who would not imagine a winter holiday other than in the mountains. And then there are the others: lovers of a certain art of living, who prefer to come (back) in the spring to savor a few last descents before putting away their spatulas and taking out their flip-flops… until next winter!

Together, let's protect our mountains

Together, let's protect our mountains

Protecting the environment can sometimes seem abstract when you don’t have the chance to live as close as possible to nature. Holidays, essential to our well-being, are also a privileged opportunity to become aware of the need to protect the breathtaking landscapes to which we are drawn (especially in a preserved area such as the Vanoise National Park).

Surprise your better half with our Valentine's Day special guide

There are those who are impatiently awaiting the date, those who don't care, those who tell anyone who will listen that "it's just a commercial party", those who feel a bit blue at the idea of not having plans for two that day, and those who live in a remote cave and have not even noticed that February 14 is fast approaching...

For rent: office with a view!

For rent: office with a view!

Want to change your life? Start by changing your view!

 

Leave everything behind and move to the other side of the world (or France)? A sweet dream... that few of us are ready to turn into reality! Family, friends, the cosy nest in which we have invested: after all, why leave behind everything we hold dear?


Yet when you look out of your office window, you are sometimes tempted to replace the building opposite with a view of the snow-capped mountains. What if the current context gave you the opportunity to take a small chase instead of a big leap? What if the recommendations in favour of teleworking offered you the long-awaited break from the daily routine without a long-term commitment? Leave the city for a few days, or a few weeks, and turn your office into a natural stage!

How are athletes judged at events?

How are athletes judged at events?

During the various sporting events organised in the resort of Tignes, it is always necessary to decide between the competitors. To do this, judges are called upon to give a verdict, to distribute the points and scores which will then allow a ranking to be established and thus to designate the winner of the event. How are the athletes judged? Who are the judges in charge of this shadowy mission that is so crucial to any sporting event? Focus on this job like no other with William Cochet, judge this season on the French Freeride Series event.

Pratique sportive et fortes chaleurs

Pratique sportive et fortes chaleurs

En été, on aime profiter des beaux jours pour s’aérer et faire du sport en extérieur. Les températures, parfois élevées, contraignent notre corps à s’adapter et à éliminer par sudation ce surplus de chaleur interne.

Pratiquer un sport avec de fortes chaleurs peut donc entraîner une déshydratation qui aura des conséquences sur la performance mais de manière plus générale sur la santé. Comment éviter la déshydratation ? Explication et bons réflexes, découvrez les bonnes pratiques de la marque Oxsitis.
