It’s been a few years since we visited Tignes so we thought we should pay a welcome return. Tignes is linked to nearby Val d’Isere and together they make up the Espace Killy ski area offering over 300km of pistes. With such a huge area there is something for everyone; beginners and intermediates will love the many gentle cruising green and blue runs connecting the two resorts and also the long blue into Les Brevieres, a great lunch stop. For the more adventurous the long blue and red runs down from the magnificent 3400m Grande Motte glacier are a must do, you’ll be spoilt for choice of just where to ski each day. For experts there are many un-pisted itinerary runs which should get the legs burning plus of course “La Face” the sheer black drop into Val. There are also some fantastic and varied runs above Val at Le Fornet.
The two resorts are easily linked to each other but are quite different in character. Set high in the magnificent Savoie Alps, Tignes comprises of 5 modern purpose-built large villages all set on a beautiful open mountain plateau and offers easy access to some of the best lifts in the Alps. It’s virtually guaranteed snow, has a lively après scene and some of Europe’s best slopes. Val is set is an open valley and is centred on a 17th century church and has a great selection of lively bars, restaurants and shops. Val has three main ski areas, those linking to Tignes, the smaller but interesting Le Fornet area plus La Daille area above which is LaFollie Douce, a great last run stop for a spot of table dancing!
