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 an affordable resort and therefore a cheaper alternative to 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, as well as the access to 2 glaciers, ensures your holiday is snow guaranteed.
