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 28-Nov-2014)

Of the open resorts that we feature in France, most were blanketed by overcast skies on Thursday 27th November. There was the odd patch of sun but on the whole the clouds were more prominent. Many resorts are struggling to hold down a good base depth at the moment and it looks as though the plans for some resorts to open this weekend will be delayed. Nevertheless, Tignes (0/60cm) is offering good riding at altitude up on the glacier. The resort runs are closed but well groomed pistes can be found higher up. The off piste requires great care as it is quite varied and rocky patches will be present. If you are heading out this weekend most resorts will have cloudy skies and visibility might be affected as a result of this. The clouds may bring fresh snow fall on Sunday at altitude.

European Weather Outlook

Europe on the whole had quite a cloudy day on Thursday 27th November with Austria enjoying the most sunshine with less cloudy spells. Italy and Switzerland were both quite cloudy and there were reports of light rain fall in Italy. France was particularly cloudy too but there were reports of sunny intervals being seen. The weekend is expected to be a mixture of sunshine and cloud across all of our featured countries but thicker clouds are predicted to move in by Sunday, which could bring fresh snow. There is currently a warm climate sweeping across Europe at the moment and it is causing a few problems for many resorts that are planning to open this coming weekend. Resorts in Austria, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland who are scheduled to open this weekend will almost certainly be delayed as their snow preparations are being hindered by the high temperatures. There is a potential for fresh snow this weekend as mentioned earlier so hopefully that will occur and assist the resorts who are planning on opening soon.
