Tignes Ski Resort Review

Tignes is situated at a high level which means it is snow-sure and has one of the longest seasons in the Alps. The resort being linked with Val D’Isere makes it one of the largest interconnected areas in Europe. The resort is predominantly built in 1960’s style apartment blocks, making it not the most attractive resort in the Alps. However in recent years efforts have been made to improve the overall look and there has been some attractive chalet style buildings which have been added. The skiing from Tignes is well accessible with fast lifts and gondolas leaving from the centre of the village, they also have the vernacular taking you to a high altitude in a short space of time where glacier skiing is available.

There are slopes to suit all abilities including gentle nursery slopes, which are situated immediately around Tignes-le-Lac and some ample long green runs towards Val D’isere to suit beginners.

For Intermediates the Espace Killy is considered one of the best in the world and there is some excellent off piste for the advanced and the snow park with its huge half pipe. Tignes is also famous for holding the popular xgames each year.

There is a selection of activities if you are looking for a day away from the slopes, or for those who don’t wish to ski, including Ice skating, snowmobiling and dog sledding. There is also a new Leisure complex with great pools and wellness areas. Tignes also has a great selection of bars and restaurants spread across the different areas.
