Tignes Ski Resort
If you’re looking for high-altitude, snowsure slopes and a lively resort there is no better choice than Tignes. We keep coming back and are proud to host our Leaders Course here each winter.
Tignes shares the huge Espace Killy ski area with its neighbour Val d'Isère. Between the two there are 300km of pistes for all abilities, ranging from long gentle greens to seriously steep off piste. The lift system is very good after a lot of investment in recent years and even if the natural white stuff is lacking, a powerful snowmaking system and the Grande Motte Glacier ensure that snow reliability is as good as it gets.
There are four separate villages to choose from. If you’re looking for guaranteed snow, good value accommodation, a lively nightlife and maximum practicality then Val Claret and Le Lac are your best bets. For a quieter, wooded setting then either Les Boisses and Les Brévières make a great base – especially for families.
We’re massive fans of Tignes here at the Ski Club, making it the perfect base for our Ski Club Leaders Course, held in resort each December.
There are also twenty Ski Club Freshtracks Holidays heading out to the resort this winter, all of which are also available as a course-only option if you’d rather book your own accommodation.
If this isn’t enough, the Ski Club’s Instructor-led Guiding Service returns again to the slopes of Tignes and the Espace Killy – be sure to pre-register soon to save your slot.
We also have a Tignes Social Hour every Monday at Cave du Loop, Tignes Le Lac from 6-8pm throughout the season, with happy hour prices for members. (The Social Hour will be on Tuesday 28th Jan instead of the usual monday for one week only).
And finally, join the 400 members of the Ski Club’s Facebook Group for the resort – it is incredibly active and is the place to be to meet up with other members this winter.
What's New for 2019/20?
The additions to Tignes for the 2019/20 season area focused on making it easier to navigate the ski area for skiers of all abilities.
The old Marais chairlift will be replaced by a newer, faster model. This means faster access to the Aiguille Percée at 2723m, otherwise known as 'the eye of the needle', along with the popular runs down to Tignes Le Lac. A magic carpet will also be built on the Marais plateau, giving beginners easier access to the slopes.
