High Altitude Skiing Karen Moodie, Ski Specialist

"Tignes is an all round great resort. A wide choice of accommodation, superb skiing for all abilities and easy access to the slopes - it’s easy to see why clients return here year after year. Its high altitude means you can always find good snow, even early in the season."

Tignes Ski Holidays

Tignes is a high altitude haven for those wanting to take advantage of the famous Tignes-Val d'Isère area. 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 latter provides fast and easy access to the western slopes, towards Val d'Isère and to the Grand Motte glacier. We also offer accommodation in Tignes Le Lac which, along with great acess to the wider ski area, has good 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. For beginners there are dedicated beginner areas and Tignes has ideal intermediate terrain with a massive selection of long red and blue runs. These include some fantastic runs off the top of the Grand Motte back to Tignes.

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