Skiing in Tignes

Country: France

In a nutshell: A high-altitude resort with incredible skiing for skiers of all abilities

We like:

  • The high altitude plus large glacier make Tignes as snow-sure as they come
  • The Espace Killy ski area is epic – skiers of all abilities will love it
  • The lift network is good with lots of high-speed lifts – getting around the enormous area is easy
  • Stunning high-alpine mountain scenery, especially from the top of the Grande Motte
  • Staying in a high altitude bowl is a great experience
  • Great range of accommodation from budget to luxury

We don’t like:

  • There are virtually no trees, which makes visibility a challenge in bad weather
  • The different ski villages are a bit spread out and lack a coherent centre
  • The architecture isn’t pretty

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Tignes is made up of 4 different villages, all with a slightly different character, but all of which offer access to the same extensive and world-beating ski area. One tignes key selling points is it’s reliable snow record. The main ski villages are at the snow-sure altitude of 2,100m and the skiing goes up to a whopping 3,450m on the large glacier where the snow quality is almost always good

Tignes Le Lac and Val Claret have most of the accommodation options, and sat at 2,100m are the high altitude bases. Val Claret is the most convenient of the two as it has the best access to the glacier and Val d’Isere. Tignes Le Boisses (1,800m) is quiet, and a great option for families or those seeking some tranquility. Tignes Les Brevieres is the lowest of the villages and unlike the others is a traditional, pretty Savoyarde village. Le Lac and Val Claret are the only bases that should be considered if nightlife is on your agenda, and they should also be favoured if you’re planning on skiing in Val d’Isere regularly.

The skiing in Tignes is absolutely fantastic: with 300km of piste there is a huge variety of runs for beginners, intermediates and experts to enjoy. There is also seemingly limitless off-piste skiing for skiers and boarders wanting to push themselves a little further. A Tignes ski holiday is recommended to anyone wanting reliable snow and a large ski area.
