General information

Tignes is the second largest ski resort in Europe and is part of the L’Espace Killy ski region. The original village of Tignes, was in the valley of Val d’Isere and was submerged in the reservoir after the French had built the Tignes Dam, in 1952. After the loss of the old village, the French had decided to build a ski resort, higher up at the lake. The resort was largely built during the 60’s and the building style reflects this. However, in recent years the town has worked on improving the look. Tignes village consists of four different sections: Val Claret at 2100m, Le Lac at 2100M, Lavachet at 2000m and Les Brévières at 1550m. Le Lac and Val Claret are the biggest sections within Tignes. Le Lac is known as the heart of the resort and Val Claret is for those who love night life.

After skiing you'll also have a great time in Tignes with lots of bars, clubs and shops to keep you entertained. If you are looking for more sports activities you can choose from squash, tennis, swimming and fitness at the local sports centre. You can then enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants.

Skiing in Tignes

The Tignes –Val D’Isere ski area is said to be one of the most beautiful and extensive ski areas in the Savoie region. The maximum altitude of this ski area is 3456 m, which is at the top of the Grande Motte Gondola. This ski area offers approximately 300km of pistes for skiers and snow boarders from all levels and has 78 ski lifts. The Grande Motte glacier makes this a snow-sure destination. Dare-devils can choose to ski and snowboard off-piste, those who prefer to play it a little safer can stay on piste and for the ones that want to freestyle and freeride there is also plenty of space.

Val Claret is located centrally within Tignes and surrounded by beautiful and spacious runs. There are several lifts that depart from Val Claret and Le Lac, which will bring you to Toviere and the Col de Fresse. This is a great starting point from which to discover the Val D’Isère from.
