Description


Tignes is located in the Tarentaise Valley of the Rhone-Alpes region in France with good transport links to both Geneva and Chambery. Along with Val D'Isere it makes the Espace Killy ski area, which is vast and has something to offer everyone.  

Due to the high altitude of Tignes, and with access to Val D'Isere's glacier, it is a very snow-sure resort and offers skiing and snowboarding all year round. 

For advanced skiers and snowboarders, Tignes has incredible off-piste runs, a lot accessed directly from lifts.

Tignes, just over the mountain from glamorous Val d'Isère, is far friendlier and hosts plenty of lively aprés ski bars and clubs without the dearer prices (we recommend trying Jam Bar).

Tignes is split into several villages; Le Lac, Val Claret, Le Lavachet, Les Boisses and Les Almes.

Le Lac
Le Lac is the main 'hub' of Tignes and home to the most lively night life. it is well positioned by the lake, and has great acess to the Espace Killy ski area and Val D'Isere. Les Almes is a suburb of Le Lac. 

Val Claret 
Val Claret sits at 2,100m and is the highest of the villages. This means from here you have great access to the glacier and the more snow-sure parts of the Espace Killy ski area. The shops, bars and restaurants are plentiful.  

Le Lavachet
A slightly less convenient resort as it is linked only by bus to the lifts. But it comes with a more tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, and is still within reach of the more lively resorts and Espace Killy ski area.  

Les Boisses
Also known as Tignes 1800 Les Boisses is well linked to the ski area with its own lift 'Boisses'. However, this village can feel a little isolated from the main hub of shops, bars and restaurants.
