WHICH AIRPORT IS BEST FOR TRANSFERS TO TIGNES?
Chambery Airport is the closest airport to Tignes with the shortest transfer time, but it has a limited selection of flights. For a greater choice, consider flying into Geneva Airport, Lyon Airport or Grenoble Airport. 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, so the journey takes more time. We allow extra time when we know the traffic may be bad. Tignes is at the end of the Tarentaise valley road, the D902, so be prepared for one of the longest transfers of the French ski resorts. The times below are all for Tignes Les Brevieres, the first Tignes resort.
– Chambery airport (CMF) is 135km from Tignes and the transfer time is about 2 – 3 hours.
– Bourg St Maurice Bus Station is 30 km from Tignes Le Lac and the transfer time is about 50 minutes. If you are arriving by eurostar and looking for transfers from Bourg St Maurice train station, we’d recommend the local Tignes public buses or a taxi.

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.
