High Altitude Skiing Nicole Graham, Agency Sales Executive

"Tignes is an all round great resort - a wide choice of accommodation, superb terrain on offer for all abilities and free lifts for beginners; it’s easy to see why clients return here year after year. Its high altitude means you can always find powder throughout the season."

Tignes Ski Holidays

Located below the towering Grand Motte, Tignes is a high altitude haven for those wanting to benefit from the famous Espace Killy area linking with Val d’Isère. Its high altitude, snow-sure slopes and superb glacier skiing make it an ideal destination at any time of the season, even for an early or late season trip.

The resort is of a more modern, purpose-built style, providing excellent value for money on and off the mountain.

Tignes is split into two main areas, Tignes Le Lac & Tignes Val Claret. The majority of our accommodation in Tignes is located in Tignes Val Claret, which provides fast and easy access to the western slopes, towards Val d'Isère and to the Grand Motte, including the glacier. We also offer accommodation in Tignes Le Lac which has great beginner slopes, a choice of ski schools and easy access to the resort's fantastic watersports centre Le Lagon.

Skiing in Tignes

Tignes is the ultimate convenient, snow-sure ski resort, suitable for all abilities. Beginners can learn on the nursery slope at Tignes Le Lac, which is accessible and separate from the main slopes. 

Tignes has ideal intermediate terrain with a massive selection of long red and blue runs including some fantastic runs off the top of the Grand Motte back to Tignes.

Advanced skiers won't be stuck for a challenge in the Espace Killy - it has some of the best off piste in France (a guide is a must) and plenty of black runs.

For freestyle skiing and snowboarding Tignes has one of the best terrain parks in France.

In the 2016/17 season, holders of a lift pass of between 2 and 15 days validity will have free access to the swimming pool at the Aquacentre Le Lagon as well as the ice rink (including skate rental), for the equivalent number of days. A 6 day pass will give 6 day access to the pool and ice rink.
