Tignes is a five-village ski resort in the heart of the beautiful Vanoise National Park. As part of the Tignes-Val d’Isère ski area, the resort is home to 300km of pistes for beginners, intermediates and experts. The high elevation (1550m – 3456m) means skiers can experience excellent levels of snowfall all throughout the season.
Tignes is a modern resort suitable for skiers of all abilities. There are three free lifts for beginners so you can gain the skills you need to improve and long blue runs to cruise around, build up confidence and settle into your skis. For more advanced skiers there is an extensive choice of red and black runs as well as glacier skiing and countless off-piste opportunities. The neighbouring resort of Val d’Isère is also within easy reach of Tignes and offers a further 150km of first-rate runs.
If bad weather is keeping you from hitting the slopes or you fancy something a bit different, Tignes offers a wide range of non-ski activities such as sledging, snowtubing, showshoeing and escape games. There are also more unique activities on offer such as microlighting and moonbikes. Le Lagon is a water sports complex located in the centre of Tignes Le Lac which features an indoor swimming pool as well as a leisure pool with massage beds, a wave machine and water slides. For total relaxation there is also a wellness area with saunas, a steam room and hot tubs.
