What makes skiing Tignes special?

Most ski holiday makers know Tignes as the 'less posh' neighbour of Val d'Isere. Here at Ski Accommodation Finder we feel that Tignes is a great ski resort in its own right. Below our top 10 list on what makes skiing in Tignes so special:

1. Tignes is one of the largest ski resorts in the Alps and the Grande Motte (3700m) and its glacier provides a huge area of high altitude terrain with guaranteed skiing all year round.

2. The ski domain of Tignes and Val D'Isere are connected with a skiable terrain of 300km and over 100 modern ski lifts. The entire domain is called L'Espace Killy after the great French ski racer.

3. Tignes Le Lac and Tignes Val Claret are both above 2100m altitude, guaranteeing great snow consistence through out the winter season well into spring

4. Tignes offers much more ski in ski out accommodation than most other ski resorts in the Alps, certainly more than its neighbour Val D'Isere. Ski accommodation prices are also much lower.

5. Tignes got a wider valley base compared with other ski resorts. Wider means longer sun-blessed skiing days and more sunny slopes even during the early part of winter season

6. Off piste is what makes Tignes great with many ski routes for intermediate and expert skiers and boarders. Tignes also hosts many off-piste skiing competitions and many of the great freestyle skiers have a base in Tignes.

7. Unlike most other ski resorts, Tignes got a winter and summer seasons. Summers in Tignes are great in addition to glacier skiing you can do every single outdoor sport you can image, the lake comes to life and most restaurants and bars are open for lunch, dinner and drinks in the warm summer sun.

8. Tignes got a real offbeat feel. It is the spiritual home of free style, big drops, off piste, extreme and all the cool guys who push the boundaries.

9. Tignes winter ski season starts in October and finished normally around 10th of May, the longest winter season in the French Alps.

10. Tignes got a massive indoor swimming pool and public wellness centre for those of you who can't afford 5 star ski accommodation.
