Feb in Tignes, France, recomendations?

Hi guys,
Traveling to Tignes for the first time,
Would love to hear about great places to eat (breakfast,lunch, dinner) cheap and good?

What's a must on the mountain?

Good shop for equipment or maintenance/repairs If needed?

Or any other info that u think important...
Thanks!!!

La Folie Douce is a good bar up on the slopes for the afternoon. Gets really busy, music blaring, people dancing up on tables etc. Its on the Val D'isere side of the mountain, but you only have to make sure you get the last chair lift back (along with lots of other people), and you are back in Tignes. We usually took a couple of drinks up with us and drank them outside before going in, or snuck them in and drank them in there. If you do go, I think it was about 6 or 7 Euros for a pint at the main bar, avoid the bottle bars as they were a rip off. Its all a bit posery, and has some VIP section as well to keep the rich idiots away from us normal folk down the bottom, but definitely worth doing at least once.

Also, the best place we got food was again in Val D'isere instead of Tignes, but its not hard to get to. Its right next to a massive frozen lake, and the food was amazing and not extortionate.

Tignes has its own frozen lake, and last year they had a night with free ice skating, and free hot chocolate and free mulled wine. Theres also quite a few good night spots, but I cant remember the name of any of them. They are easy enough to find though.

On the mountain, head up to the eye of the needle or whatever its called. Its a big hole going through the rock at one of the peaks. Makes for a good photo.

Make use of the bus that goes between Tignes le Lac and Val Claret. The area has an unfortunate amount of flat bits, so getting across can be a ball ache if you are on a speed mission across resort.

There was a couple of parks with some nice easy features, and some bigger features in the main park between tignes and val d
