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

john from United Kingdom writes:

Returned to Espace Killy for the first time in seven years.
I stayed at Les Bervieres in wonderful apartments. The village, itself, is small but with good restaurants and bars and a good if small supermarket.
I have skied in Austria, Italy and the three valleys for the last few years and the resorts I skied have left Tignes and Val behind. I can only ski at half-term and therefore, acknowledge that it will be busy but the lift system cannot cope. There are too many surface drags and old slow chairs that cause huge queues.
If you are fortunate enough to be able to ski low season then it is still a good place to visit but in high season you spend as much if not more time queuing than you do skiing.
I feel the resort is living of its reputation whereas others are investing in the lift system.
Finally, even by French standards, the price for food up the mountain is ridiculous.
