    More about the skiing in Tignes

  • So what's it like?

    High altitude resort with superb snow and extensive skiing

    Guaranteed snow, all the amenities you could need and every accommodation type imaginable make Tignes a world-class ski resort. Tignes is part of the Espace Killy ski area. Which means there’s loads of variety from the highs of the glaciers in Tignes and Val d’Isère to the pretty rolling reds and blues down to Tignes Les Brevieres. Tignes also caters for the more adventurous skiers and boarders, with plenty of off-piste skiing for freeriders and two world-class snow parks if you fancy trying out some freestyle. Tignes offers great access to Espace Killy without the Val d’Isère price tag.

    Tignes is an ideal resort for groups as there’s a lively après scene with many bars and restaurants to choose from. Families love Tignes as it provides child friendly entertainment, such as swimming pools and ice skating rinks. There are plenty of family-focussed hotels and good quality ski schools to help the kids master the basics. Our Crystal Childcare team in the Hotel Diva give parents a chance to get out on the slopes to enjoy some time to themselves.

    Tignes is a purpose-built resort and, as a result, lacks a little of the old-world charms of some other destinations. However, with a variety of chalets, hotels and apartments suiting a range of budgets it more than makes up for it in terms of practicality and price.
