Tignes

Although the high altitude resort of Tignes is a fair way from nearby airports, it is definitely not one to miss if you’re looking for a snow-sure resort with regular good snow conditions! Tignes is linked to the neighbouring resort of Val D’Isere, which together make up the huge Espace Killy Ski area. Ski holidays in the Tignes ski resort are designed more for convenience than style but the surrounding scenery more than makes up for the town. There are three main ski areas: Val Claret, the closest to the Grand Motte, Le Lac and Lavachet on the other side of the lake, which are all interconnected with a free regular and efficient shuttle service.

The Espace Killy lift pass gives you access to the neighbouring resort of ValD’Isere as well as Tignes, providing you with a total of 300km of pistes that make up the Espace Killy Ski area. This large area is serviced by 90 ski lifts which form one of the fastest and most efficient ski lift systems in the world. Tignes is a great resort for experts looking for breath-taking off piste, but also has a huge variety of terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. The nursery slopes and gentle greens of Tignes-le-lac and Le Lavachet are perfect for beginners and early intermediates, with a wide range of reds and several blacks on La Grande Motte glacier for those who want to push themselves a bit further. Your Espace Killy lift pass will take you to a top altitude of 3455m on the ‘Grand Motte’ and ‘Le Fornet’ glaciers, with a descent of 1355m of piste back into Tignes. The majority of runs in the Espace Killy area are open and above the tree line, with usually very good snow conditions thanks to the high altitude of the resort; but there are 26km of snowmaking facilities just in case! The Espace Killy lift pass also gives you the opportunity to spend a day skiing in either the Paradiski or 3 Valleys area if you want to explore another resort during your stay.

Tignes may not be the closest resort to the surrounding airports (3 hours from Chambery, 4 hours from Geneva and Lyon), but it really is worth a visit. We have 3 hire shops in Tignes, 2 in Tignes Val Claret and another in Tignes le Lac, making hire easily accessible throughout the resort. The après ski in Tignes is great fun, but you need to know where to find some of it! The atmosphere is good in all areas of Tignes and with different ‘levels’ of liveliness, you’ll definitely find something you like! Le Lac is a good place to start the evening ; Val Claret provides the biggest choice of bars, restaurants and nightclubs, and two of the liveliest bars -- TC’s and Censored (formally Harry’s Bar) – can be found in Lavachet. There is plenty of good food on offer from traditional mountain fare and gourmet specialities to pizzas and burgers! This is a ski resort that caters to mountain addicts year round so you can expect great service, a good infrastructure and plenty to do.

If you’re looking for more relaxing or family friendly activities, Tignes has plenty to offer; from Spas and fitness centres to bowling and a cinema there’s something for both children and adults.

If you’re feeling especially adventurous, then why not try ice diving, paragliding, speedriding or heliskiing?
