I have been going to Tignes for 25 years and in the past 3 seasons my wife and I have taken our young son (4 and a half at first visit) to introduce him to the joys of the mountains.
Each time we have kitted out equipment from Tignes Spirit. They were extremely patient and accommodating with my son, always ensuring he was comfortable and taking the time to show him how the equipment works.
Every year the manager, Kieran, remembers my son by name and makes a real fuss of him - joking with him about how much he's grown and what he'll be able to do on skis by the end of the upcoming week etc.
For my wife and I - who are fair weather but good skiers - the equipment has been consistently good and current and the staff are knowledgeable and efficient. From what I can see, prices are competitive.
It is the personal touch and good quality kit that keeps us coming back.
