As one of Europe’s premier resorts and with an incredibly reliable snow record, Tignes makes a fantastic choice for a skiing holiday. With an altitude ranging from 2100 – 3488m, a wide ski terrain, fast and efficient lift system, and a wonderful long ski season, Tignes is just superb.
Tignes ski resort shares 300km of pistes with the neighbouring resort of Val d’Isere, an immense area linked together to form the infamous “Espace Killy” ski terrain, aptly named in honour of Jean Claude Killy – the triple Olympic French ski racer.
Given the size of the Espace Killy and the vast variety of pistes and slopes, the ski resort of Tignes has plenty to suit every skier and snowboarder, whatever your level. Nursery slopes for the kids, beginner and intermediate runs aplenty, superb off-piste action, and all kept in tip top condition by 821 snow cannons guaranteeing snow from November through to May.
For non-skiers and boarders, there is plenty to keep you occupied, visiting the stunning glacier and beautiful lake, or perhaps a pampering day at the Lagoon Centre, in nearby Tignes Le Lac, where these is a lovely Spa with hammam, hot tubs and sauna, not to mention the huge swimming pool, gym and swimming lessons for babies and children. With your Espace Killy lift pass, you are entitled to one free entry, and it’s definitely worth a visit.
