Tignes isn’t the mecca it used to be sadly, back when Nelson Pratt, Josh Wolf, Ryan Davis and Graham Macvoy ruled the pistes. Having said that, Margot Rozies is often seen around town, as is Rich Jonas and his missus Katie Blundell. The man to look out for though is Pom Pom, the best rider in Tignes without a doubt. He’s a French gangster who listens to Black Sabbath and drinks pints of Guinness through a straw – you can’t miss him! Neil McNair is also a local legend for being the backcountry master. But also being just so fucking cool.
