Overview of Tignes

Skiworld Team In-Resort- We have a Skiworld team based in this resort who are there from the moment you arrive until you depart to make sure that every aspect of your holiday runs smoothly. As well as having their contact details should you need them, they will be in contact with you during your stay to help with anything you may need and to make sure that you get the most from your ski holiday with us.

High altitude, convenient, snow-sure and hard-core – just a few of the fitting superlatives to describe skiing in Tignes. If you are looking for excellent snow, the resort’s altitude of 2100m will provide this whether it’s November or April.

Tignes offers wide pistes, hugely varied terrain and some of the best lift-served off-piste in the world. Visit Tignes if, for you, skiing comes first and stopping for lunch is considered a weakness. Don’t ski Tignes if you’re looking for a chocolate box village – the purpose-built resorts of Le Lavachet, Le Lac and Val Claret are function-over-form, although the views across the lake are beautiful, especially at sunrise or sunset. The old villages of Les Brevières or Tignes 1800 have more in the way of a little rustic alpine charm and some trees.

Tignes chalets are all close to a piste or ski lift and the 24-hour bus service means you can pick your runs and never have to worry about how you’ll get home (just don’t get stuck on the Val d’Isère side after lifts close as this will cost you). Most Tignes chalet guests prefer first lifts to late nights but you will always find a few friendly seasonnaires living the ski hard/party-hard lifestyle. If you take your skiing seriously, you definitely need to ski in Tignes this season! We also offer a great range of ski apartments in Tignes, from budget options to luxury.

3 Things We Love About Tignes

  1. Quality Ski Area – The size and the terrain of the Tignes-Val d’Isère Ski Area rank it amongst the best ski areas in the world, with 300km of marked piste.
  2. Snow Sure – At 2100 metres, Tignes Le Lac and Val Claret offer as good a guarantee of snow as any other resort stations in Europe all winter long. The Grand Motte Glacier is even open in summer, so you can always be sure there is top skiing available in Tignes.
  3. Ski Convenience – The high altitude of Tignes’ villages means there is plenty of accommodation which is within easy reach of the slopes, if not ski-in/ski-out.
