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)

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 24-Feb-2017)

Thursday 23rd of February was yet another sunny day in France. The general story is of hard packed slopes up high and where the most traffic is but soft, spring like conditions on resort runs. Overall, conditions are very variable on piste. Off piste skiing is limited at the moment due to the warm temperatures and a lack of new snow but looking at the weather forecast, this could all be set to change. Some of the best conditions in France can be found in Les Arcs (48/152cm). Slopes, especially at the top, are well groomed and grippy. They can be hard in places, especially with the amount of holiday traffic, but remain very good overall. Conditions were also good in Montgenevre (150/260cm) where slopes were wel-groomed. They were packed and grippy in the morning but softened up throughout the day. The snow line has been visibly receding in the Chamonix (20/200cm) area recently. Strong sunshine today means that slopes lower day are softening up fast. Up high, however, slopes can be hard packed but are still ultimately very enjoyable. There were early spring conditions in Morzine (30/50cm) and the rest of the Portes du Soleil today. When the slopes begin to soften up, head to Avoriaz (80/110cm) for the best snow.

European Weather Outlook

It has been a tough week all over the Alps recently with heavy rain, warm temperatures and strong sunshine all negatively impacting snow quality. However, a change is coming and the early signs of its arrival are visible already. Cloud cover will gently increase throughout today as much needed fresh snow and cold temperatures move in tonight. Tomorrow will see cloudy snowy conditions all over the Alps with light to moderate snowfalls expected. The freezing level will quickly drop which means it will snow all the way down to the valley floor. Beyond this sudden change Saturday will bring slightly warmer temperatures by the afternoon with Sunday being a mostly sunny day. A large snow storm is currently is forecast to bring very heavy snowfalls to the Alps next week. It would seem winter is returning from its brief summer vacation, and not a moment too soon. In the Pyrenees a mostly sunny weekend is ahead, no significant snowfall is expected before Tuesday 28th. In far north Scandinavia a slight change to the normal pattern of dull overcast weather. Moderate snowfalls are expected over the next few days. Powder days are unlikely but certainly enough to create excellent on piste conditions.
