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 23-Apr-2017)

Sunny weather dominated across the open French resorts on Thursday 20th April, providing excellent visibility to enjoy the skiing on offer. The temperature remains low for this time of year, helping to preserve the snow cover. The bright skies are expected to last throughout the weekend, although it is forecast to get warmer. Bonneval sur Arc (35/250cm) in the Haute Maurienne Vanoise area reported the deepest snow base of our featured French resorts on Thursday, and the neighbouring resorts of Val Cenis (5/200cm) sat ranked third place, just behind Cauterets (0/210cm) in the Pyrenees. Friday 21st April will be the last day of skiing in Val Cenis, while Bonneval will remain open until 28th April. Cauterets will remain open for skiing until 23rd April. This is the last week of skiing in Alpe d’Huez (0/160cm), Avoriaz (30/110cm), Serre Chevalier (5/130cm), Les Arcs (10/160cm) and La Plagne (0/190cm), all of which still have some great skiing on offer for their last week of the season. The major skiing areas of the Espace Killy, Three Valleys, Portes du Soleil, Grand Massif and the Chaminox valley still offer superb skiing, and in particular on their higher slopes. In the Three Valleys, Courchevel (15/136cm) and Meribel (0/136cm) will close the season this weekend but Val Thorens (95/150cm) will remain open for skiing until 1st May. Tignes (35/145) will remain open for the winter season until 8th May although Val d’Isere (35/145cm) will close for their season on 1st May. Val d’Isere plans to open for summer skiing from 10th June until 16th July, with Tignes offering summer skiing from 24th June to 6th August. Les Deux Alpes (0/200cm), currently offering some great skiing high up will close for the winter season on 29th April, then reopen for summer skiing from 24th June to 2nd September.

European Weather Outlook

The forecast for the continental European skiing locations is for further clear skies as we move over the weekend. However, cloudier skies are forecast to return and the temperature should once again drop. This could bring some heavy snowfall too. Solden in Austria has the greatest predicted snowfall of any of our reported resorts, with over two metres of fresh snow possible by the end of April, with the heaviest dumps of snow likely in the middle of next week. Austria is predicted to receive the greatest amount of snow overall, although resorts in Italy, France and Switzerland should not miss out either. April can often deliver some outstanding wintry conditions and this year is no different. Fresh snow could hit the Scottish resorts over this period too.
