TIGNES SKI RESORT
The ski resort of Tignes was conceived in the 1950’s, when the French government built a dam which flooded the original village of Tignes. The resulting purpose built resort, located further up the mountain, suffered from the architectural style of the time. However, what Tignes lacks in architectural aesthetics, it makes up for in skiing and facilities. It has plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants and a fantastic, modern sports and leisure complex. It’s a well priced resort and certainly a lot cheaper than its more glamorous neighbour, Val d’Isere.
Tignes is part of the fantastic Espace Killy ski area which offers some of the best skiing in the world. 300km of marked runs are serviced by 88 ski lifts. Although it has a wide range of pistes catering for all types (27 black runs, 40 reds, 66 blues and 23 greens) it is really a resort for intermediate and advanced skiers. Its position between the French and Italian Alps allows for an consistent snowfall record and with access to 2 glaciers, your holiday is snow guaranteed.
WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR TIGNES?
Tignes is pretty much at the end of the Tarentaise valley road, so be prepared for one of the longest transfer times of the French ski resorts. The journey time depends on which Tignes resort you’re going to, the traffic and weather conditions and whether you’re going during the school holidays, when the roads can be very busy. Chambery is the closest airport but with limited flights, most people choose to fly into Geneva, Lyon or even Grenoble. The times below are all for Tignes Les Brevieres, the first Tignes resort you come to as you enter from the airports
