My family and I have been staying and skiing in Tignes for the past 4 years and in comparison to other European resorts that we have experienced, you will find the best snow conditions in this resort. The architecture is definitely lacking but the convenience of the free bus link and easy access to the pistes makes up for the lack of traditional alpine charm. I meet a lot of skiers on the lifts who confess that the lifts and slopes in Tignes are more superior than neighbouring Val D'Isere. So that great debate continues!!

My family ski in Tignes every year around Christmas and in my opinion, this resort cannot be surpassed for snow sure conditions in comparision to the other Eurpean resorts that we have been to. With easy access to all slopes and great bus links, Tignes makes it easy for families to keep mobile. Although the architecture is not that pleasing to the eye, the quality of the skiing blinkers you. If you want a family friendly, snow sure ski resort - head to Tignes!

Eerste indruk was steile pistes maar dat viel best wel mee eens je erop stond. Elektronisch skipassysteem is top. Zelfs enkele gratis stoeltjesliften voor beginners met verschillende afdalingen. Funiculaire richting de gletsjer gaat snel van 2000m tot 2850m. Gevorderden en pro's kunnen zich uitleven in de diepsneeuw tussen de pistes in. Met verschillende liften kan men in Val d' Isere komen en makkelijk terug. Het dorpje heeft alles wat men nodig heeft en de prijzen waren oké. In de pubs is het wel wat duurder maar dat is overal. Wij waren er met kinderen en die hebben zich ook goed geamuseerd. Voor mij het beste skigebied tot nu toe (nog beter dan Alphe d' huez en Les Arcs). Volgende winter

Espace Killey has huge, varied terrain, the lifts are fast and numerous, making for awesome freeriding when it dumps (despite having few trees.) Val Claret is the only place to stay as it is the highest point, has great access to the slopes and the best bar around (the Coulior.) Almost unlimited off piste is easy to access, some of the best bits are off the Signal drag in La Fornet, the Manchet nature reserve behind the Solaise area, the Col De Fresse face (hike up from the Borsat chair) and the cliffs around Lanches on the Grand Motte. The parks are OK but are small, served by tiresome lifts and lack daily grooming. Loads of boarders building kickers should be an indication that the parks a

Trouwe Tignes skiërs die we zijn, bestaat er geen beter gebied. Na 10 jaar is er geen lift die niet vernieuwd is, geen accomodatie die traag is, enkel in de uithoeken van het gebied tref je nog oude installaties aan, daar kunnen ander gebieden een voorbeeld aan nemen, Tomeuzes, Belvarde, Tichot een greep uit wat er vernieuwd is, door de snelle verbindingen, debrayable, is het heus niet zo erg dat er geen kapje over heen komt. Tignes here we come ... voor de twaalfde keer, en dat wil toch wel wat zeggen.
