Superb high altitude snow-bowl, backed by the Grande Motte glacier

Tignes, with its Grande Motte glacier, is Val d’Isère’s “other half” – between them these two superb ski areas make up the world famous Espace Killy ski area, named after France’s best known Olympic skier, Jean-Claude Killy. Tignes, famed for its unbeatable snow record as well its excellent skiing for intermediates and experts, comprises three main villages, all interlinked by an excellent 24 hour free bus service. Val Claret at 2100m has a superb position right at the foot of the Grande Motte funicular. Le Lac and Le Lavachet have a more cosy village feel to them and also offer easy access to the slopes and over to Val d’Isère. All the villages have a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and a lively, friendly buzz about them. In the unlikely event of indifferent snow – and you’d have to be pretty unlucky to encounter snow problems at this altitude – the glacier always comes to the rescue!


For Ski 15/16 season, we have a brand new offer for ‘solo skiers’. You can book the Chalet Chardonnet departing on the 5th December 2015 for just £649. See here full details of this offer.
