Skiing in Tignes
The ski area
Tignes is the first ski area in the world to hold the "Green Globe" international label for sustainable tourism, recognised by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and the World Tourism Organisation.
Located in the Savoie, the resort is made up of several villages, four of which have direct access to the ski area. Of these, Tignes Le Lac (2,100m) and Tignes Val Claret (2,127m) receive the highest number of visitors. The other two villages, slightly lower in altitude, are Tignes Les Brèvières and Tignes Les Boisses.
Over 300km of marked runs, for all levels and tastes, await you in the interlinked ski areas of Tignes and Val d'Isère. For complete beginners, the resort has five free magic carpets and button lifts in the "1, 2, 3 ... SKI START" areas. Children are also catered for with two free toboggan runs in Le Lac and Lavachet.
