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 29-Mar-2015)

Thursday 26th March was a mostly cloudy day across the French Alps, with the best chance of brightness for the southern resorts. Elsewhere some light snow fell overnight, with the most being on the upper slopes as the milder air led to a wintry mix falling lower down. For the best sunny skies on Thursday, the southern Alps and resorts such as Isola 2000 (125/175cm) and Foux d’Allos (46/157cm) provided the best bet. Some new snow was recorded here earlier this week, leading to some good ski conditions across the mountain. Expect some slushier conditions lower down and the odd bare patch as the recent warm weather has reduced the snow depth somewhat. Thick clouds were covering the Portes du Soleil on Thursday, with resorts such as Avoriaz (120/270cm), Chatel (65/165cm) and Morzine (25/110cm) remaining socked in. Some light dustings of snow were recorded at these resorts, but the tricky visibility led to some difficult skiing conditions. Resorts with the very highest slopes were fortunate to see sunshine, but only above around 2,800m. For example, the Pic Blanc above Alpe d’Huez (78/170cm) was bathed in sunshine, as was the Roche de Mio above La Plagne (15/155cm). Sunnier skies are forecast for Friday, but don’t expect brilliant blue skies as the clouds are not far away. These are set to return on Saturday and are set to bring 15-40cm of snow on Sunday with a freezing level of around 1,800m.

European Weather Outlook

The Alps are currently in a very unsettled spell of weather, with rain, snow and sun all being seen in the past few days. This is expected to continue over the weekend, with the best chance of brightness in the eastern and southern Alps on Saturday. More snow is expected for the northern Alps on Sunday/Monday, with between 20 and 50cm forecast across a wide area and possibly more in some favoured spots in Austria. Watch out as the freezing level is set to rise to between 1500-2000m, so rain may fall lower down. Mostly sunny and settled weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, with some prolonged spells of warm sunshine expected over the weekend. Temperatures are set to rise slightly above freezing at mid-mountain level, but will rise further next week – potentially hitting double digits on Tuesday. Unsettled weather is forecast for Bulgaria, with snow expected on the upper slopes of all featured resorts. Some big totals of more than 50cm can be expected, but sadly lower down rain is likely to fall. Following a sunny Friday, more snow is forecast for Scandinavia over the weekend, potentially bringing a further 10-20cm to go with Thursday’s snowfall. Western Norway in particular is looking very snowy next week. Snow is also in the forecast for Scotland, with snowfall likely every day heading into next week. The heaviest falls are set for the west coast but the east will not miss out either, hopefully bringing enough snow to reopen Glenshee and The Lecht.
