Tignes Resort Info

Tignes skiing

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)

Snowmakers: 974

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 27-Nov-2015)

Yet more heavy snow has fallen in France, with further snow showers piling into parts of the Alps on Thursday 26th November. More resorts are due to open this weekend, and with more snow in the forecast there should be some excellent early season conditions on offer! On Thursday the best skiing was to be found at Val Thorens (75/100cm) following 30cm of fresh snow. Powder conditions were reported across the mountain and with nine lifts and 17 runs open, the early season conditions were fantastic. Unfortunately high winds limited lift operations in Tignes (30/100cm), but when the Grande Motte does reopen there will be 40cm of fresh snow to play in – albeit somewhat wind affected. The link to neighbouring Val d’Isere (30/100cm) is set to open at the weekend and some further snow showers expected there may be a fresh top up for opening weekend. Conditions in the Chamonix (35/150cm) valley should also be fantastic when the first lifts start turning on Saturday, thanks to 35cm of snow on Thursday and well over a metre in the past seven days. Thursday’s snow is set to clear through for Friday, bringing a brief sunny weather window to the French Alps. Snow is set to return on Saturday and Sunday, although snowfall totals look set to be more modest than forecast earlier in the week, so look for between 10-20cm of fresh powder. A few resorts have been mentioned already, but several ski areas are set to turn their lifts for the first time this season over the weekend. These may be subject to change, but as of Thursday morning these resorts are due to open: Alpe d’Huez, Argentiere, Cauterets, Chamonix, Les Houches, Montgenevre and Val d’Isere.

European Weather Outlook

Thursday’s snow is set to clear through the Alps from the west, lingering longest in the Austrian Alps, where a further 10cm is possible during the day. A mostly sunny Friday is then forecast, accompanied by temperatures well below freezing at all levels. Another snow front is then set to move into the Alps on Saturday, although it is looking likely to be less potent than initially expected. Snowfall totals are therefore likely to be much more modest, with between 10-25cm forecast for most resorts in the Alps. Sunshine and settled weather finally looks to be returning in time for the new week, with sunny skies and milder temperatures (above freezing at most levels during the day) expected. Little snowmelt is likely however owing to cold overnight temperatures, short days and weak sunshine. Very similar weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, although less snow is forecast to fall over the weekend, with only 10cm likely at our featured resorts. Slightly higher temperatures are also forecast next week, with daytime peaks of around 7C expected at mid-mountain level. Heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria on Friday, dropping as much as 30cm on our featured resorts. More settled weather is then expected next week, with a slow rise in temperature looking likely as the week progresses. Once Friday’s warm spell passes through, a very wintry spell of weather is predicted for Scandinavia over the weekend and into the start of next week. Heavy snow is set to track through Norway and Sweden on Sunday/Monday, bringing at least 20cm of new snow to our featured resorts, with as much as 50cm possible at Voss on the west coast. Very unsettled and stormy weather is forecast for Scotland over the weekend and into next week, with high winds forecast to accompany spells of heavy rain and heavy snow. Hopefully after the snow falls (most likely on Friday and Saturday), the rain will not wash away all of the fresh accumulations and a decent base will begin to build.
