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 24-Apr-2014)

This is the last week of winter operations for a number of resorts across France, including some of the larger ski areas. Meribel (10/65cm) and Courchevel (46/122cm) in the Three Valleys ski area are both scheduled to close for skiing on Friday 25th April, along with Les Saisies (26/102cm). The Paradiski area, which includes Les Arcs (26/160cm) and La Plagne (0/215cm), closes for the season on Saturday 26th April, as does Montgenevre (50/70cm). Isola 2000 (55/265cm), Risoul (20/60cm), Vars (20/60cm) and Cauterets (150/250cm) should all then close on Sunday 27th. The state of skiing at the open resorts is good at the moment, with the best snow conditions high up. The Grands Montets ski area at Argentiere (65/205cm) in the Chamonix area reported 10cm of new snow in time for the lifts opening Thursday 24th April at 3,275m. Fresh snow could fall at all of the open ski resorts over the weekend, with heavy clouds forecast and a drop in freezing level to below 2,000m

European Weather Outlook

Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
