The season may be winding down, but the warm weather and long days spring brings offer the perfect setting for some of the best events of the season. 

Here are our picks for some events to watch out for in April. For a full list, check out our events calendar.

Live in Tignes - 16th to 18th

Live in Tignes, brought to you by Francofolies, is back for its fourth edition. Over three days the free concerts will see the likes of BigFlo & Oli, L.E.J., Shaka Ponk, Catherine Ringer, Juliette Armanet and more, giving it their all on an outdoor stage at the bottom of the slopes.

Soapbox Race - April 24th

Tignes’ snow soapbox race is now in its 5th edition. Teams of up to four compete in a race in home-made snow racing machines and in three further categories. There are prizes for ‘Most Beautiful Soap Box’, ‘Most Original Soap Box’ and ‘Most Solid Soap Box’. The event takes place on the Lavachet slope after the closing of the lifts at 17:00. After the competition, there will be music, refreshments and tartiflette. It’ll be a great event whether you’re competing or not.

Folie Douce Closing Party - April 27th & 28th

The only good thing about the ski resort closing is the end of season parties. La Folie Douce doing what it does best is throwing two huge events on consecutive days. The 27th will be apres as normal, while the 27th will see the final edition of their weekly WTF party. As always, there will be live performances and more than likely someone spraying expensive champagne wildly into the crowd.
