Went there this year for a week when all the lifts are free. Fantastic weeks riding, lots of DH to ride starting with the Green's which are nothing like the Green In the UK, a great intro to DH which was more like a UK blue/red with flowy singletrack, nice berms, some loose bits to keep you honest and not too steep at all.. Then onto blue which you really do need to know your bike well and have some experience possibly jumping and also confident riding tight switchbacks....there are jump lines but also chicken routes.
We didn't do anything harder than this as it would've really meant full DH kit, we did have full Sussers (enduro) and knee pads . There are full DH bikes and full kit to hire everywhere from Mondraker, Kona, Scottt, Commencal, Nukeproof and more!

Wrote this review as it's what I'd have liked to see when I was researching it, tons to do around tignes as well as the bike park! Canoes, pedaloes, huge waterslide, tennis, mini pump track, basketball, beach volleyball, bike ramp with inflatable airbag to practice skills... and the glacier is open all year round at the top for year long ski-ing and boarding!
We found ourselves only doing around 2 of the activities all week as there is so much riding to do with routes you'll just want to ride and ride again. Our studio was €200 and it was billy base, you can spend upto €1000 if you want but as a base for us it was great! Recommend for groups to go too!
