Things to do - general

Tignes

Unlike historic Val d’Isère, Tignes is a purpose-built resort set around a natural lake fed by the Grande Motte glacier, which is the symbol of the resort at 3,656 metres. A free shuttle bus runs between its five villages.

Season

November 24, 2018 – May 1, 2019

Ski area

Tignes has the area’s longest run – a 10-kilometre black run called La Sache that descends from the L’Aiguille Percée rock formation (also known as Eye of the Needle). It is one of 26 black runs that make up the 300-kilometre Espace Killy ski area, which includes neighbouring Val d’Isere. Altogether the ski area has 90 lifts, with 20 green runs, 67 blue and 41 red. Tignes also has a terrain park, a half-pipe, air bag, boardercross and introductory freestyle zone called gliss’park.

Accommodation

Choose Val Claret or Tignes Le Lac to be close to shops, restaurants and bars, or a more affordable ski-in/ski-out apartment at the quieter Lavachet. Or stay a bit further away from the action in a traditional chalet at Les Brevieres or in the newest village Tignes 1800.

Off-piste

Activities include ice diving in the lake, a Bun J Ride jump, ice driving, paragliding, snow tubing, ice climbing, karting on ice, dog sledding, snowmobiling, mountaineering and snowshoeing. There’s also an aquatic and wellness centre. Val Claret and Tignes Le Lac have the most restaurants and après options, with an inviting terrace at Dropzone which converts to a nightclub in the evening, live music at Coiloir and an inviting fire pit at Grizzly’s log cabin.
