One of the largest ski areas in Europe and linked to neighbouring Val d’Isère, Tignes has earned itself “Super Resort” status. Famous for its high altitude skiing and a snow record most other resorts can only dream of, Tignes coolly and comfortably rivals the world’s best ski and board destinations for downhill and off piste activity.
The super fast ski lift system covers over 300km of immaculately maintained pistes and the ski slopes extend to the highest and finest glacier pistes of the glorious Grand Motte.
The slopes in Tignes are characteristically wide, long lasting and highly efficient. All in all, this allows for some effortless skiing for all abilities, less slope congestion and not so much waiting in lift queues!
The slopes are immaculately kept and link very well with neighbouring Val D’Isere to offer a superb variety of steeper descents and networks of easier runs for the progressive intermediates to cover some mileage.
Advanced skiers will enjoy the easily accessed Off Piste opportunities around Tignes, and the wide, open expanses of terrain which are perfect in the powder and don’t get tracked too quickly.
Some of these border the national park, and can be extraordinarily quiet, especially the array of excellent slopes and off piste routes down into Les Brevieres.
Tignes is famous for its excellent high altitude snow, largely due to the Grand Motte which plays host to the highest ski-able Glacier in France. It appeals to all abilities from beginner to expert powder skiers and is famous for its good quality snow and long season on the Grande Motte Glacier which has Summer skiing and snowboarding!
Our exclusive hotels and chalets in Tignes Le Lac enjoy prime slope-side or ski-to-door locations in this busier part of the resort, where there is an abundance of activites, shops and a vibrant nightlife centred around a pretty mountain lake.
