Tignes Ski Holidays Call to book: 01733 224 808
Sharing the massive Espace Killy ski area with Val D’Isere, Tignes is a playground for experienced skiers and snowboarders. The small hamlets that make up this resort give it a delightful atmosphere, and with each village having their own pistes, every day on the snow presents new challenges. Sample traditional Savoyard delicacies or dance till dawn in one of the many restaurants and bars.
Whether you’re into adrenaline-pumping sports or more sedate amusements there’s something for everyone. When night falls, more adventures begin beneath the starlit sky; head out on a snowmobile and explore the sights or try ice driving on the thrilling track in Les Brevieres. If you’ve wanted to try indoor climbing why not have a go at the superb Tignespace centre? Tignes’ ice rink gives you the opportunity to show off your ‘Dancing On Ice’ moves. After a day of thrills, relax on a comfy sofa beside a crackling log fire and sip a warming hot chocolate or cocktail.
You can pretty much ski anywhere in the areas of La Grande Motte Massif, Le Palet, Le Toviere and Les Brevieres and it’s non-stop downhill action if you want it. There are 68 blue runs and 39 red runs to occupy the intermediate skiers, which are easily accessed via the 88 ski lifts. Experienced skiers will be eager to test the black runs – they are unrivalled by any others in the world! If you’re a snowboarder and wondering where to go in Tignes to practise freestyling, Val Claret boasts the largest snow park in the world.
If you’ve got little ones there are plenty of things for kids to do in Tignes. Take them to the bowling alley in Le Lac and enjoy a few games together, or to the leisure centre for a splashing good time in the swimming pools. There’s a spa at the centre too so you can be pampered while the kids have their fun in the water. The whole family can watch a film in the warmth of one of the cinemas. For a fast and exhilarating experience, go on a husky sled ride.
Your taste buds are in for a treat with Tignes’ local cuisine. A raclette is a fun way of dining; on your own table top grill you can cook slices of meat and potatoes, with the option of melting cheese over the top, it’s delicious! La Place is a great all-rounder with giant burgers, salads and local options like diots (sausages). Each village has its own nightlife; Val Claret is best for clubbers while Les Boisses is one of the quieter places in Tignes. The Loop Bar, happy hours and live bands make it a top choice for après-ski entertainment.
