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

Lenny from United Kingdom writes:

I've been skiing for 25 years all over the world and have just come back from skiing Tignes and the Espace Killy ski area for the first time. We went in low season and I have to say how disappointed I was with the outdated lift system, especially on the Les Brevieres side, with the fixed chairlifts which crack the back of the legs before taking you up the mountain at a snail's pace. Even though it was low season the ineffective lift system was the cause for many delays throughout the whole area.
The condition of the pistes was an absolute disgrace with very little grooming, even on main pistes being groomed only once in the week and when I say "once" I mean that half of the piste was groomed. This can vary between the top, bottom or side of the piste whichever they seemed bothered to do.
This whole area needs major investment in the lift system and in some more piste bashers as it was, at times, like a third world resort!
I will not be returning to this ski area until it resembles something like a ski area which has some pride. Come on Espace Killy, sort it out!
