Tignes - stunning access to Espace Killy area

The ‘Tignes-Val d’Isere’ ski area, combining Tignes and neighbouring Val d’Isère, ranks highly in any keen skier’s top ten world resorts, and deservedly so. Completely snow sure, with over 300km of piste, plus easily the same again in off-piste terrain, the area offers well over a mile of vertical drop - from the guaranteed snow at the peak of the Grande Motte Glacier down to the picturesque old village of Tignes-les-Brevières.

Our accommodation, childcare facilities and children’s ski area are all conveniently close to one another, and with runs back to Le Lac from both sides of the valley for skiing parents, this is an easy resort for the day to day logistics of a family ski holiday. Furthermore, our partner ski-school has an excellent reputation for caring for English youngsters.
