Tignes Resort Info
Lift linked to Illustrious neighbour Val d'Isère to make up the Espace Killy, the Tignes ski area is, needless to say, vast and varied. The 300km of marked pistes cater for all levels and tastes with great off-piste, long wide blues and two snowparks (with another, even better one, over in Val d'Isère). Tignes also has the Grande Motte glacier providing year-round skiing. The glacier and Tignes' high altitude, make this resort for a great early or late season ski holiday destination. The whole area is serviced very well by an efficient lift system and the five 'satellites' that make up the resort are all linked by free bus.
Tignes ski resort
Due to its 1960s heritage, Tignes is not exactly famous for its Alpine charm. However, off-snow activities have improved somewhat over the last few years. There are a nice range of decent restaurants and bars whilst there are supermarkets for the largely self-catering crowd. Nightlife and après ski is pretty healthy and families are greatly welcomed with good childcare run by the ski schools. Overall, Tignes is not a place that relies upon Alpine ambience. But hey, who cares when the days are filled with such great skiing.
Number of ski lifts: 79 ; 2 funiculars, 4 cable cars ; 5 gondola lifts, 18 chairlifts, 25 detachable chairlifts
Number of runs: 155 with 26 black slopes (7 in Tignes), 39 red (19 in Tignes), 68 blue (36 (Tignes) and 22 green (7 in Tignes)

Thanks to the excellent start to the winter season in France many resorts opened early this weekend and there is fantastic on-piste skiing all over the French Alps.
Meribel (30/100cm), Val Thorens (65/105cm) and Courchevel (69/99cm) are now all open for the season in the Three Valleys. Although there has been no recent snowfall all three resorts have strong snow bases and enjoyed clear weather all weekend.
Isola 2000 (40/60cm) La Clusaz (15/70cm) and Les Menuires (20/105cm) are all also now open every day and provided fast skiing on hard-packed pistes on Monday 9th December under sunny skies.
There is still brilliant skiing to be found in Tignes (40/140cm) which has enjoyed consistent sunshine recently. The resort now has over 50 lifts open and the best skiing can be found on groomed runs.
Val d’Isere (40/80cm), Les Deux Alpes (15/170cm) and Alpe d’Huez (20/150cm) have also been enjoying spring-like conditions in December and the warm and sunny weather continued at each resort on Monday 9th December.
European Weather Outlook
The sunny weather looks set to continue in Europe with France, Switzerland and Austria all expecting clear skies and dry days throughout next week. Temperatures could also rise to above 5C in some places.
While very little snow is expected to fall anywhere in Europe this week Bulgaria could receive light snow during the middle of the week in preparation for opening day at Bansko next weekend. There is also some much-needed light snow forecast for Oppdal in Norway.
