Tignes Hors Piste: Le Guide Complet is a comprehensive guide book to the awesome off piste skiing and snowboarding in and around the resort of Tignes. This is the most complete Tignes off piste guide book currently available.
Tignes Hors Piste contains 275 routes covering all off-piste ability levels, ranging from short descents between the pistes to multi-day backcountry missions. The 432 pages contain a wealth of local information along with excellent topos, routes descriptions in French and English and great images.
There are also a couple of really cool innovations in Tignes Hors Piste; first is the use of a QR code for each route. The user can scan the code and download the route onto a mapping such as Google Earth.
Second is the use of aspect profile charts which map the route’s aspect in descent. This is a really useful tool especially where avalanche safety is concerned.
All of the publisher's profits go to SOLEA – a Tignes charity which supports cancer research.
