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 27-Apr-2015)

Most French resorts are now closed for the season, but there is limited skiing available at some of the highest resorts right through into May. The weather on Monday 27th April was changeable, with heavy snow forecast to arrive during the night – dropping as much as 30cm of fresh snow above 2,000m. A further 15cm is possible on Wednesday. The Grand Montets area remains open above Argentiere/Chamonix (0/175cm), as does access to the Aiguille du Midi. The upper slopes received a good 20cm top up on Sunday and are expecting 30cm more in the coming days. Val Thorens (85/200cm) is set to remain open for another week and was running 28 of its 31 lifts on Monday. Good skiing was on offer across the area and with new snow forecast, some late April powder days are possible. The Espace Killy is offering some good skiing, particularly on the very highest slopes of the Grande Motte and the Pisaillas areas. It remains possible to ski back into both Tignes (30/135cm) and Val d’Isere (30/135cm) and the link between the two is still open. All of our other featured French resorts are now closed for the season.

European Weather Outlook

A return to winter is forecast for the Alps during Monday night as a strong cold front is expected to arrive and lower the snow level to around 1,500m. How quickly the freezing level drops will be key to the amount of skiable fresh snow, but current indications suggest 30cm is possible across the northern Alps. More snow is expected up until Friday, potentially as much as 30cm again, with a snow level remaining mostly below 2,000m. A return to mild, spring-like weather and a freezing level of 3,000m plus is expected for the weekend. Scandinavia is predicted a changeable week, with some good spells of sunshine expected as well as some snow showers. Some of these may be heavy and Are could pick up as much as 10cm of fresh snow on Thursday. A return to winter has also been felt across Scotland this week and is forecast to continue over the coming days. Expect some heavy snow showers and perhaps spells of more organised snow during the afternoons and evenings in particular.
