WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR TIGNES?
Tignes is pretty much at the end of the Tarentaise valley road, the N90 / D902, so be prepared for one of the longest transfer times of the French ski resorts. The transfer time depends on which Tignes resort you’re going to and, of course, the traffic and weather conditions. If you’re travelling during the school holidays the roads can be very busy and so the journey takes a little longer. We allow extra time when we know the traffic may be bad. Chambery is the closest airport but with limited flights, most people choose to fly into Geneva, Lyon or Grenoble. The times below are all for Tignes Les Brevieres, the first Tignes resort you come to.
– Chambery airport (CMF) is 135 km from Tignes Les Brevieres. The transfer time is about 2 – 3 hours.
WHERE IS THE BUS STOP IN TIGNES?
Tignes is split into 4 resorts. Tignes Val Claret is at the top. Then there’s Tignes Le Lac, (our stop is at the Gare Routiere, the main bus station) then Tignes 1800 (formerly Tignes Les Boisses – our stop is on the roundabout) and finally the pretty little village of Tignes Les Brevieres. Our Tignes ski transfer service from Grenoble, Geneva and Lyon Airports make stops at all these resorts. From all our stops, you can use the free in-resort shuttle buses to get to your accommodation.
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 is part of the reason it has such a consistent snowfall record. This, along with access to 2 glaciers, ensures your holiday is snow guaranteed.
