Tignes is a high altitude resort in the heart of the ski country of France (part of the Espace Killy ski area alongside Val d'Isere) and is one of the best all-year round resorts in the Alps. Every style and ability of skier/boarder is catered for at Tignes with 300km of pisted runs and an un-rivaled amount of off-piste easily accesible from the resorts modern lift network. Off the slopes Tignes may appear somewhat drab and ugly. However, it offers everything a skier needs with restaurants and bars a plenty. Be warned though, prices in Tignes are more central London than rural France!

Visitor Reviews of Tignes


chris parrot from United Kingdom writes:

Looking forward to my 7th visit to Tignes. Back to Le Lac this time with my wife, brother-in-law, his daughter and her daughter, little Marni. As most say great resort with a great area to explore and as long as you ski blues or better you can go almost anywhere although I did get carried away and found myself above the Swatch snow park with only blacks to get back down but it was still fun although they were icy and narrow but it pushes your boundaries.
This year we fear the niece is going to try and get us to go heli-skiing as she wants to get us off the motorways and into the powder but we are not so sure.
Austria is great for the apri-ski and food on the mountain and pretty alpine villages but Tignes is difficult to beat for skiing.
Roll on the 21st March and hope the snow keeps coming.
