Tignes is almost unrivalled in the Alps for its snow record, varied terrain, lift system, slope accessibility from resort and length of season. It also benefits from being higher and somewhat cheaper than its neighbour Val d’Isere.
Want to free heel ski in Tignes or Val d’Isere, it doesn’t matter as they are on the same ski pass and the link is easily accessible from all the main parts of the resort. Tignes has rightly developed its reputation as the daring and freeriding neighbour to Val d’Isere slightly reserved and smarter feel.
It has the pistes for all levels, with plenty of blues and reds to satisfy any intermediate telemarker and is great for beginners for its progression of slope difficulty providing perfect coaching and practise areas. It also boasts some of the best quality piste snow of the Espace Killy in the North Facing Trolles, a black run that descends into the village. With over 300km of runs in the Espace Killy, and at least half of these being in Tignes, you could easily spend a week telemarking just the marked runs but is the off piste where Tignes really comes into its own.
Look out of your window in the morning and you can see many a famous off piste descent accessible from a single lift ride. From couloirs like Mickey’s Ears and the Fingers to open powder bowls such as Lognan and Chardonnet.
If this was not enough you can Telemark from the village at 2,100m right up to 3,400m at the top of the Grande Motte Cable Car which allows access to good quality winter snow right through to the end of April and skiing in October and November on the Grande Motte Glacier and all the way down if the winter snows come early.
Try any of the following:
Ice Diving, Skating, Climbing and Driving, Paragliding, Dog sledding, Skidoo-ing, Snow kiting or Speed riding. Alternatively, you could just go for a walk!
Agreed, beautiful it is not but it does boast a great range of shops, restaurants, bars and night clubs plus a fantastic leisure centre right on Lac de Tignes and looking up to the Grande Motte. Arguably, one of the best views from a treadmill anywhere in Europe.
In Tignes there are endless powder options, everywhere you look there are easy-to-access fresh tracks. Lena Haurits Nielson - Fall Line Magazine
I love the spring snow conditions and I think we’ll be making Tignes a regular end of season week from now on. It’s hard to beat... Alison Sedden
