Service

15 years ago we set out to find the best snow in Europe and discovered Tignes: big mountains, vast, high, snow-sure ski area, extended season (Oct-May) & glacier for year-round snow.

We’re dedicated to providing great value, tailor-made holidays for snowboarders & skiers of all ability levels (beginners to experts) any groups size (individuals, couples, large groups).

Because the lodge is independently owned we have a personal interest in making your holiday the most memorable ever. We’re very proud of our reputation and put great effort into keeping our prices reasonable considering our prime position in one of Europe’s few snow sure ‘super resorts’.

If you have any questions, need more info or would like to book please get in touch – and we look forward to welcoming you to the lodge this season.

Our ethos at Dragon Lodge is to let you arrange exactly the type of holiday you want and not to impose anything on you (travel option, equipment hire package, lift pass, insurance, food etc…) This allows you the freedom to tailor your trip to suit your exact requirements.

We can help arrange all or any of the following extras either before your trip or in the resort:

  • Transfers – from any airport / train station
  • Lift Passes – avoid the lines, have us collect your ski pass in time for your arrival and have them waiting for you at the lodge.
  • Equipment Hire (snowboard or ski) – delivered to the lodge
  • Lessons – with the best snowboard & ski schools
  • Off-Piste guiding & Heli-Boarding/Skiing
  • Extra Group / Media / Corporate activities

The lodge has 3 floors:

The main, middle floor, has the spacious living & dining room with great south facing views over the mountains – the perfect place to start the day with breakfast and a great view of the slopes you’re about to conquer. After a day on the hill come back here to relax and grab some tea & freshly made cake – the tea/coffee/drinks facilities are free to use any time for guests. Also on this floor there’s a sun terrace and south facing balcony running the full length of the lodge with great views to get you going in the morning and to relax with a drink in front of after a long day on the slopes.

In the Living room there’s a TV/DVD player, movies, stereo with i-pod connection, Xbox & games all free to use. There’s also a selection of games, magazines and books and free WIFI access. The Dining room is where you’ll enjoy breakfast, our hearty 3 course evening meals each evening and where you’ll relax and socialize with your fellow guests, catch up on the tales of the day and make plans for tomorrow. Finally on this floor is our fully equipped snowboard and ski storage & maintenance room – free for you to use or where we can service your equipment for you.

The lodge has a total of 9 bedrooms over the 3 floors:

Rooms 1, 2 & 3 are downstairs, from the main living room. They share a shower room, another bathroom (bath, sink & WC) and another separate WC. All three rooms were refurbished in 2009:

  • Room 1: 2 person – double bed. While not having an exterior window (we offer a reduced rate because of this) room 1 is very spacious, newly decorated and has a double bed, double sofa, TV/DVD player and Ipod dock/music system – perfect for couples.
  • Room 2: 3 / 4 person – double & bunk beds. South facing window – perfect for couple, family or small groups to share.
  • Room 3: 4 person – 2 x bunks. South facing window – perfect for small group of singles to share ‘bunk room’ style with like minded people.

Rooms 4 to 9 are upstairs and are split into 3 separate, apartment style ‘mini-lodges’. With two bedrooms each they share their own private living room areas which are perfect for relaxing before and after riding/skiing. With sofa & table seating for 5 or 6 people they also have their own kitchenette area so can be totally self contained and come complete with TV/DVD/Xboxe/Ipod speakers, WIFI etc. as an added bonus to the facilities in the main living room (which guests also have access to of course)

There’s also a balcony running the length of this floor with the same great south facing views as downstairs (see photo above) From each living room are accessed two bedrooms – a twin/double and triple room (up a short, steep stair case above the living room – NB stairs are steep and could be difficult to ascend/descend for very young children or elderly guests – please ask for more details if you’re worried about this) and are set-up as follows:

  • Two of the 2 person rooms have two single beds which can be put together as twins or apart as singles (as you request) and have small windows looking out onto the slopes.

  • The central apartment/mini-lodge’s 2 person room has no window (we offer a reduced rate because of this) but does have a double bed so it’s a perfect hideaway for couples.

  • The three triple rooms have a bunk and single bed combo and have great views out over the slopes.

  • Each mini-lodge has its own bathroom with shower, WC and bath.

Location

Dragon Lodge is ideally located in the ‘Les Almes’ area of Tignes Le Lac – the most central, vibrant and well serviced of Tignes four interconnected villages. With great south facing views across the slopes the lodge is on a quiet street but is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Tignes Le Lac, the main bus stop, shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, supermarket and the new sports centre.

The nearest piste to start/end your day is just a minute’s walk up the road from the lodge, from where you can ride or ski down to the ‘Paquis’ & ‘Chaudannes’ lifts which give immediate access to both sides of the Tignes ski area. The main ‘front de neige’ where ski & snowboard schools meet, the nursery slope and its free ‘Rosset’ chairlift, along with the popular ‘Palafour’ chairlift (the locals favourite) and new ‘Aeroski’ gondola (giving direct access to the Val d’Isere area and whole ‘Espace Killy ski area) are situated is only a 3 minute stroll down the hill from the lodge.

The lodge is situated at 2100m altitude and can therefore be sure of snow from beginning to end of season – first weekend in December right through to May, plus glacier skiing in October and November as well as the summer.
