Along with Val d'Isere, Tignes makes up the huge Espace Killy ski area. It is one of only a few resorts in Europe classified as snow-sure and boasts a very long winter season plus summer skiing on it's glacier. It is well known for it's good off-piste, half-pipe and snowboard parks. It is spread over five resort centres with Les Brevieres at the bottom being the most picturesque. Next up is Les Boisses followed by Le Lac and Lavachet which are probably the best spots for nightlife and shopping along with Val Claret at 2100m.
Lyon Airport is situated 15kms east of the city. There are numerous arrival and departure gates in the airport but the majority of UK flights, including all of Easyjet's, arrive at gate 10 (terminal 3). Whilst Lyon Airport is considerably further away than Geneva or Chambery the route is almost entirely on motorway making for fast transfer times. Having said that the motorway can get vey busy during French holidays with delays of 1-2 hours.
