Tignes is a boarders paradise. Great park and loads of variety. Unless you are loaded get an appartment and eat in. Lunch for two will cost 50 euros if you have anything nice but the restaurants are low grade on the mountains. The apres-ski is good and the sushi take away is also worth a go. Overall, just awesome boarding. Going to Tignes again.

I have skied in Tignes for two years running and as a ski resort it is definitely my favourite. . I stayed in Val Claret which is an ideal location for exploring the area, and found the variety and snow quality to be first rate. I would have to say the skiing is far better than in Val Thorens as the final runs into VT are quite average and very busy. People often mention crowding but I only experienced this in two locations, one being the final cable car up to the top of the Grande Motte and two when trying to get back from Val before closing time, otherwise we had no problems in either January or February, it is so big and they are improving the lifts all the time. In terms of nightlife, Ti

Because of its high altidude, 2100m, Tignes is almost guaranteed snow. Split into two main centres, Val Claret (mainly appartment blocks) and Le Lac (more chalets), Tignes comprises a vast ski area for the more advanced skiier. Along with Val D'isere, there are basically 5 valleys, ranging from L'Aguile Pierce on the tignes side to La Fornet on the Val side, the best of which is arguably the far right on the piste map, L'aguile Pierce, where there are two main black runs, the Sache and the Silene, both can be quite a challenge when moguly, the Sache especially, because of its length can be a handful. Tignes is perfect for people aged 18-30 as the bars are open long into the night and the acc

The Espace Killy ski area is simply marvelous. The best places are Tignes Val Claret or Le Lac. I prefer Val Claret. From here you can access so many different slopes and you can ski to almost every apartment or Hotel in the Val Claret centre. The slope and lift system in Tignes is so well thought through that you hardly loose any time getting from one slope to the next. You can get a lot of skiing done even in half a day. Tignes is also the Mecca for off-piste skiing in Europe. I go at least twice every year and always find some powder somewhere but be careful off-piste - go with an expert or guide.

Modern lift system No local charm
