Dragon Lodge Tignes 20th Anniversary & Tignes Banked Slalom, Set For April 24 2018

The 2017 / 2018 winter season has been an epic one across the Alps, and especially in Tignes, with a record snowfall, the most for more that 30 years…and it’s also fittingly been the 20th season running for the Dragon Lodge. Little did they think when they  opened the first little lodge in December 1997 that we’d still be shredding on 20 years later! Back then they  just wanted to setup the kind of place they, as snowboarders, and their friends wanted to stay for a week in the mountains, and now 20 years later they’re celebrating just that with our friends and family as they  do every Spring.

This year as well as the epic Spring shred they’re putting on a series of events with all their friends in Tignes, from Apres sessions at the Loop & Tignes Cuisine (Wednesday 23rd 4PM) to BBQ cook outs with the legendary DJ BBQ and his posse at the lodge – plus next week, on Tuesday 24th April, the mighty stoner rock behemoths that are STEAK are back in town!

Most seasons they  like to close the winter out with some rock ’n’ roll, teaming up with their friends and sponsors to put on a free live show at the Loop Bar  . This year as always the event is presented by longtime sponsors Dragon, who themselves are celebrating 25 years in the game, as well as regular long-time partners in crime Dalikfodda and Tignes Spirit, and of course artwork for the gig, and a special Dragon Lodge 20th birthday design, have been done by longtime Dragon Lodge friend and collaborator & Dragon artist Schoph.

This year they’re also stoked that Tignes’ first banked slalom event will be held on the same day Tuesday 24th April, arranged by the TDC Snowboarding crew, this friendly event is open to all and will help raise awareness of climate change in partnership with Protect Our Winters (all funds from the event also go to this great charity) – Artwork for the Tignes Banked Slalom is by another amazing shred artist Iuna Tinta

So, anyone in Tignes, this area of the Alps, or just anyone who wants to have an epic end of season shred & party get yourselves up to Tignes on Tuesday 24th April and they’ll see you here!
