Jo our friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Tignes

Ski Range 1,550m – 3,456m

Tignes is indisputably one of the 'crème de la crème' of world ski areas, the 'Espace Killy' ski area, combining Tignes and neighbouring Val d'Isère, ranks highly in any keen skier's top ten world resorts as their ski holiday choice, and deservedly so. Completely snowsure due to the Grande Motte Glacier, with over 300kms of pistes, plus easily the same again in off-piste terrain, the area offers well over a mile of vertical drop, from the peak of the Grande Motte down to the picturesque old village of Tignes-les Brevières.Our accommodation is conveniently situated at 2,100m at Tignes-le-Lac and Le Lavachet, and all our ski chalets are within easy reach of the ski lifts and slopes.


Tignes Ski School

Our partner ski-school here is award-winning Evolution 2, who operate with a strict maximum of eight per class, to ensure a high level of personal attention. This means faster progress for beginners, but the ski-school is equally well known for helping intermediates break bad habits and move up a level, and for its specialist powder courses, which can be arranged with your Ski Total representative in resort. Children also benefit enormously from the 8-per-class maximum, and Tignes-le-Lac is home to Les Marmottons - one of the best 'Jardins de Neige' for children in the French

Paret Sledge Decent A ’paret’ is a traditional Savoyard sledge made from wood with a single runner. You sit on it and balance with your legs either side. The Paret sledge Decent is a favourite with Sasha, Agency Sales Executive at Ski Total, she says 'The Paret sledge decent is by far my favourite non ski activity to do on the mountain, you can do it in large groups and is just hilarious. You get the last lift up the Palafour chairlift and all wait at the top of the mountain for a quick instruction. Then in controlled groups are let lose down the run which takes about 30 minutes in total- you get so much speed, snow is flying in your face and is just the best experience, and to top it off you get a nice glass of Vin chaud at the bottom.'

Husky-sleddingEvolution 2 organise dog sledding trips which involve flying over the frozen lake and giving you opportunity's to take in all of the pristine wilderness Tignes has to offer.

Bowling Bowling in both Le Lac and Lavachet. Spend a relaxing evening playing pool and bowling in the lanes with some quiet beers.

Snowshoeing Wearing the traditional snowshoes enables you to distribute your weight over a larger surface area. This means you can walk with ease at your own pace and without any special effort. Snowshoeing is a great activity open to all and on the trips there are planned stops to let you take in the beautiful surroundings.

Ice-diving Plunge into the icy cold waters and experience the thrill of diving under the ice while exploring the unusual underwater landscape wildlife below.

As an experience climber with the correct safety equipment you can tackle it on your own, but if you are a beginner and have never climbed before then a mountain guide or adventure company such as Evolution 2 can teach you the basics of using crampons and an ice axe. This natural phenomenon is a must for climbing enthusiast.

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!
