About the Skiing & Boarding
The slopes in Tignes are characteristically wide, long lasting and highly efficient. All in all, this allows for some effortless skiing for all abilities, less slope congestion and not so much waiting in lift queues!
The slopes are immaculately kept and link very well with neighbouring Val D’Isere to offer a superb variety of steeper descents and networks of easier runs for the progressive intermediates to cover some mileage.
Advanced skiers will enjoy the easily accessed Off Piste opportunities around Tignes, and the wide, open expanses of terrain which are perfect in the powder and don’t get tracked too quickly.
Some of these border the national park, and can be extraordinarily quiet, especially the array of excellent slopes and off piste routes down into Les Brevieres.
You really cannot better the variety of Tignes! The slopes are very suited to all levels of Skier and Snowboarder, and the Pipe and Park in Tignes is legendary. It usually has permanent shapers and is cut and groomed by people who really know how to use Pipe Dragons!
The park is maintained daily and so it is usually in very good condition, with a range of jumps for all abilities.
All levels of rider can enjoy the Freeriding in Tignes, with some really interesting features and terrain, combined with high altitude snow, which makes for some epic riding.
It is the opportunity for serious powder riding that makes Tignes an unbeatable destination for many, and is often where the fun can really start!
