Welcome to



Tignes is a high altitude ski resort located in south eastern France, specifically in the Tarentaise valley, in the Savoie region and comprises of several different villages – Val Claret, Le Lavachet, Le Lac, Les Boisses and Les Brevieres.

All the villages can be easily reached on skis or by the free shuttle bus .

It is located at an altitude of 2100m in the French Alps and together with the neighbouring resort of Val D’Isere, forms the great Espace Killy ski area that covers over 300km of runs and two glaciers. The glaciers ensure snow availability for most of the year, thus making it one of the most snow secure resorts in Europe.

Tignes is a purpose-built resort, so compared to other French resorts, it lacks in the overall French charm but still, keeps its aesthetic simple.

Grizzly’s bar is a log cabin themed bar located at the base of the Val Claret slopes. The Aspen Café is the ideal place to grab lunch in between your time on the slopes, as it is perfectly located at the bottom of the Grand Motte in Val Claret.
