TIGNES SKI RESORT
The ski resort of Tignes was conceived in the 1950’s, when the French government-built a dam flooded the original village. The resulting purpose built resort, located further up the mountain, suffered from the architectural style of the time. However, what the resort lacks in architectural aesthetics, it makes up for in skiing and facilities. It has plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants and a modern sports and leisure complex. It is an affordable alternative to its glamorous neighbour, Val d’Isere.
Tignes and Val d’Isere make up the amazing Espace Killy ski area, which offers some of the best skiing in the world. There are 300km of marked runs, 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 gives it a consistent and reliable snowfall. This, as well as the access to 2 glaciers, including the famous Grand Motte Glacier, ensures your holiday is snow guaranteed.
