Superb high altitude snow-bowl, backed by the Grande Motte glacier
Sister resort to Val d’Isere, Tignes brings altitude as well as attitude to this iconic pair of resorts. Together they form the world
famous Espace Killy area. Thanks to its altitude Tignes has an unbeatable snow record and provides outstanding conditions for
intermediate and expert skiers and boarders while still providing for beginners and improvers.
The resort consists of three main villages in the snow-bowl, all linked by an excellent and free, 24 hour bus service. At 2100m
the highest village is Val Claret which has a superb position at the foot of the snow sure Grande Motte glacier. Le Lac and Le
Lavachet have a cosier village feel to them with excellent access to the slopes.
All the villages have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and a lively, friendly buzz about them. Further down the
mountain is Tignes 1850 and Les Brévières with their laidback atmospheres. There really is something for everyone in Tignes.
Chalet Chardonnet has a perfect location just on the lakeside, with handy access to the ski lifts. The Tovière gondola is just a
short walk away or if you wish to start skiing in Val Claret then the regular ski shuttle bus service stops just outside the chalet.
Facilities included all rooms en suite, Wellness area with hot tub, sauna, relaxation area and shower/wc, entrance/ski/boot room,
Beginners skiing and snowboarding in Tignes
An easily accessible green run in Tignes le Lac is the perfect starting place for complete beginners, with further green runs in
Val Claret and les Brevieres. As you progress, plenty of wide, cruising blue runs will allow beginners and improvers to easily
explore the mountain and hone the techniques learnt during ski and snowboarding lessons. A number of ski schools operate in
Tignes, providing an excellent standard of tuition. Complete beginners will also be reassured that the high altitude location of
Tignes means snow-sure conditions. You won’t have to travel to the top of the mountain to get good quality snow.
Intermediates skiing and snowboarding in Tignes
The ideal area for intermediates, Tignes provides a wide choice of long blue and red runs. The Grand Motte glacier gives
spectacular views over the whole valley and beyond with a suitably challenging red run leading you into Val Claret.
The blue run from the top of the Grattalu chairlift, with its wide piste and generally great snow conditions, is an excellent area
in which to get your ski-legs back if you have been away from the slopes for a while. During peak season when all pistes are
open, long blue and red runs from the top of Aiguille Percée (2748m) all the way down into Tignes les Brevieres (1550m) give
skiers and boarders something to really get their teeth into.
Advanced skiing and snowboarding in Tignes
Tignes has a great selection of ‘Naturides’, un-groomed black runs which blend the snow conditions of natural terrain with the
security of patrolled pistes. The area is known for the quality of its off piste and the mountainside is criss-crossed with bold
lines carved by daring freeride skiers and boarders. The Vallon de la Sache down to les Brevieres is a lengthy black run sure to
challenge the more advanced skier and boarder. Or hop over to the other side of the Espace Killy to take on the infamous
Face, a steep, icy black run which leads all the way into Val d’Isere.
Freestyle and terrain parks in Tignes
Tignes provides fantastic facilities for skiers and boarders who are beginning to learn or improve their freestyle technique. Two
‘Easy Parks’ with green and blue tables and rails are a great place to practice and you can also have your performance
recorded on video for prosperity. An airbag in Val Claret is ideal for honing your mid-air tricks without fear of serious injury.
More advanced freestylers will want to take a turn in the half-pipe near the base of the Les Lanches chairlift. Frequently used
to host international competitions such as the European X Games and the Ski Halfpipe World Cup, this facility is open between
mid-January and mid-April.
