Welcome to Tignes Ski Resort

  • Perfect for all abilities.
  • Huge, snow-sure ski area
  • Lively slopeside après and nightlife
Once the purpose-built poor relation of upmarket Val d’Isère, the Tignes ski resort has emerged from its neighbour’s shadow to become one of the most happening resorts in the Alps.
Tignes skiing is incredible - It’s home to some epic freeriding for both skiers and boarders, genuinely brilliant for beginners and intermediates and hosts some of the liveliest après bars in France (Cocorico’s anyone?).
Situated at 2,100m, it gives access to 300km of pistes across the Tignes-Val d’Isère area, with the Grande Motte lift going up to 3,400m. All helping make Tignes snow conditions some of the Alps' best and most reliable.
When it’s a powder day, the options are limitless. Think untracked snow off the piste and for the adventurous, steep and soft turns between the trees. Thanks also to the Grande Motte glacier, it’s one of the few resorts where you can ski in the summer – although that may change in the years ahead.
And with Tignes après, nightlife and restaurants offering something for all the gang, you’ll have just as much fun off the slopes as on them. It’s no wonder why Tignes ski holidays are so popular.

Best time to ski in Tignes

It pays to know the best time to ski in Tignes. If you’re desperate for early-season snow, then skiing Tignes in December is ideal. If you’re lucky you’ll get huge dumps of snow.
For quiet slopes, January is ideal. Those wanting the best snow conditions in Tignes should aim for February, but it’ll be busier in the February half-term.
And for sunshine skiing, the best bet is to go on a ski holiday to Tignes from March onwards. 

Snow conditions in Tignes

Tignes snow conditions are some of France’s best. Think big glacial skiing and high-altitude dumps of snow. It’s snow-sure and offers one of the longest seasons in France - opening at the end of November and continuing through to early May.
The snow falls the thickest throughout January and February. Snow conditions in Tignes peak in February but with its high altitude, it’s no stranger to both early and late dumps of snow.

Things to do in Tignes

Outdoor activities in Tignes
Beyond skiing, there's plenty of things to do in Tignes. Try ice diving beneath the lake and ice climbing frozen waterfalls nearby – wild experiences away from skiing. Too chilly? Complete your Tignes ski holiday with dog sledding, snowshoe hiking, snow tubing and even paragliding - the list is endless.
Places to visit in Tignes
Tignes ski holidays offer awe-inspiring views. ‘Le Panoramic’ has incredible vistas of the entire Grande Motte glacier and Grande Casse mountain. The ‘eye of the needle’ is a must-visit. You may recognise it from James Bond’s ‘A View To Kill’. Or kick back at 'Lo Soli' and soak up the views of the snow-drenched resort.
Indoor activities
Fancy a break from the slopes or fun during a whiteout? Tignes has plenty to enjoy indoors. Hit up ‘Le Lagon’ and its funpool and waterslide. Skaters will love the indoor skatepark. And ‘Le Bowling’ is perfect for night owls and groups thanks to its late closing time.

Le Grattalu - Offering hearty Alpine classics like raclettes and fondues in a cosy and traditional setting, it’s a must-visit restaurant in Tignes.
Le Moose - Combine rustic charm, easygoing staff and a high-altitude pub and you’ll get Le Moose. With live sport, a dart board and a pool table it's great for families and groups and its gourmet pub classics are perfect for a post-ski pitstop.

Pizza Nick - While Tignes restaurants are great, sometimes a takeaway pizza can tick all the boxes. And with veggie, vegan and gluten-free options on offer, it’s an easy choice for all.

Nightlife & Apres in Tignes

Loud and lively, Tignes nightlife is legendary. For the wildest après-ski in Tignes, you can dance on the tables till late at Cocorico’s slope-side party.
