A fun trail that takes you back from the trails above Tignes Le Lac, to Tignes Val Claret. Access involves a flat ride past a lake at the top; see the "Access Info" section. It's all downhill, starting with some deep bermed switchbacks before speeding up as you descend to Tignes Val Claret on a fast, swoopy trail with a few rollers and some rocky bits. Not too hard for a relative beginner, but if you rip down it fast, it's quite a challenge. And it beats pedalling back from Le Lac on the road! Great views of the valley from the top!
Take the Palafour lift then head down any of the trails that start directly ahead of the lift. About 7-10 minutes down the trail, you'll come to a wide flat area where you'd usually head down to the left to return to Le Lac. Instead, head to your right, keeping at about a similar altitude, towards the bottom of the Merles lift (closed in the summer). Once there, you'll see the lake to your left. Ride anti clockwise around the lake halfway, and you'll see the sign for the start of Tarte à Lognan.
