Tignes, France Launches Summer Ski Season with Bikini Slalom Race

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on June 22, 2009 10:56 am

The Grand Motte glacier of Tignes, France opened this past weekend with what else?  Hot chicks in bikinis racing down a slalom course!  Because what says summer-skiing better than chicks in bikinis?  Mt. Hood, are you paying attention?!?

Tignes once had the Tour de France rolling through town, but the locals seem content with replacing blood-doping bicycle riders with blood-warming women skiers.   With temperatures hovering just under 50 degrees, a dozen lovely ladies made us all pay attention to their stats:

12 lifts
2,460 vertical feet
12.4 trail miles

12 / 2,460 / 12.4 is not as catchy as 36-24-36, but that’s summer skiing in Tignes!
