SKIING IN Tignes

Ski Range 1,550m – 3,456m

From Tignes-le-Lac, where six of our ski chalets are located, lifts head up both sides of the valley, with the Aeroski gondola giving immediate access to the Tovière ridge and the ski slopes of Val d’Isère, and the Chardonnet lift and Palafour chair heading up the Aiguille Percée side of the huge Tignes bowl.

Access from our six other ski chalets in Le Lavachet is equally easy, with two main chairlifts within easy reach, one heading up each side of the valley.

This incredible area just has everything – miles and miles of wide open pistes, two glaciers with sensational snow, plenty of trickier black runs when you want a challenge, and some of the best off-piste in the world. Intermediate skiers will revel in the choices available every day while skiing in Tignes – take a long tour across to the Le Fornet end of Val d’Isère and back, ski the full circle around the Tignes valley, with lunch in the picturesque village of Tignes-les-Brevières.

It is no wonder that Tignes/Val d’Isère holds such iconic status amongst expert skiers, for its huge choice of black runs, plus its legendary off-piste temptations. There are acres of high altitude unpisted open bowls, which all receive bountiful dumps of fresh powder right throughout the season. Much of this is accessible by lift, leaving the true aficionados to trudge the ridges in search of the more extreme chutes and couloirs. But for this kind of terrain, a guide is definitely recommended!
