Experience Bun J in Tignes
During your Mark Warner holiday in Tignes, choosing the Bun J Ride as one of your off-slope activities is an exciting and unforgettable experience. During the ride, you jump a 30-metre ramp then take off falling to a 40 metre drop while attached to bungee cords, then you finally come back down to the ground by zip wire.
What makes this like no other bungee experience is that you can ride down the ramp via skis, snowboard, bike, in tandem or on a sledge, whichever you fancy. Combine your favourite winter sports with the thrill of bungee jumping in this unique adrenaline pumping attraction.
Open from December to April, the venue, which sits high at an altitude of 2600 metres has been open since December 2014 and the ramp is located along the red Merles slope next to Le Lac blue run. Spectators can watch on in amazement from a free viewing area and be sure to get your jump on video or in photos.
