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 22-Dec-2014)

Unfortunately rain was falling across much of France on Thursday 18th December. This followed some good snowfalls of up to 20cm on Wednesday, which below approximately 2,000-2,500m will have been affected by the rainfall. That being said, upper slopes will make good gains from this snowstorm, so hopefully more terrain up high should open for the coming weekend. The best conditions again remain at altitude, with glacier resorts seeing the most snowfall but more importantly snow on Thursday rather than rain. Tignes (25/40cm) saw 20cm up on the Grande Motte glacier and over the links across to Val d’Isere (10/40cm). Val Thorens (60/100cm) continues its excellent start to the season, reporting 20cm of fresh snow and owing to its high altitude it was still snowing on Thursday. Elsewhere, the situation is not looking as good. In the lower resorts, such as those in the Portes du Soleil the rain has been a big set back. The upper slopes should hold on to Wednesday’s snowfall, but the latest webcam images on Thursday suggest that at resort level much of this is already melting. As many resorts are due to open this weekend, keep an eye on resort websites for the latest opening information following Thursday’’s rainfall.

European Weather Outlook

The weather across Europe is set to be predominantly sunny as we move into next week. Some clouds could deliver fresh snow at the start of the weekend but this will mostly be in Andorra, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will not be enough to dramatically enhance the overall riding conditions but fresh snow is still a nice thing to receive. Next week will then be predominantly sunny with the freezing level rising to over 3,000m for Tuesday 23rd December before plummeting again to around 1,000m for Christmas. There is good news for Christmas too as further fresh snowfall is forecast on Christmas Day or Boxing Day at most European resorts. Norway and Sweden are forecast a different week to most of Europe though, with fresh snow predicted on most days. The Swedish resort of Salen may be the exception here though as less snow may land at this resort. The Scottish resorts should see a similarly cloudy week to the Scandinavian resorts although rain may result at times and strong winds are expected, which could affect lift operations. Fresh snowfall is forecast at times though, and Christmas visitors could be in for a great time with snow on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
