France, Espace Killy Ski Area
Sister resort to Val d’Isere, Tignes brings altitude as well as attitude to this iconic pair of resorts. Together they form the world famous Espace Killy area, named after France’s best known Olympic Skier – Jean-Claude Killy. Thanks to its altitude Tignes has an unbeatable snow record and provides outstanding conditions for intermediate and expert skiers and boarders while still providing for beginners and improvers.
The resort consists of three main villages in the snow-bowl, all linked by an excellent and free, 24 hour bus service. At 2100m the highest village is Val Claret which has a superb position at the foot of the snow sure Grande Motte glacier. Le Lac and Le Lavachet have a cosier village feel to them with excellent access to the slopes.
All the villages have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and a lively, friendly buzz about them. Further down the mountain is Tignes 1850 and Les Brévières with their laidback atmospheres. There really is something for everyone in Tignes.
