France's Tignes resort has a rich freestyle history that dates all the way back to the 1980 Freestyle World Cup season and includes playing host to the Freestyle events of the Albertville 1992 Olympic Winter Games. Since March 2010, Tignes has played host to the European X-Games, further proving itself annually as one of the great resort event hosts in the world.
The 2014/15 saw the FIS Freestyle tour return to Tignes for the first time since 2007 with a season-ending nighttime World Cup halfpipe competition that saw several thousand fans gathered at the base of the Tignes pipe to take in the action.
Held in conjunction with the SFR World Tour and used as a qualifying event for X-Games Europe, last season's Tignes event was a huge success and we at FIS Freestyle are counting on the 2015/16 edition to be even better.
