Tignes: the ski & freestyle paradise at Grande Motte glacier

Welcome to Espace Killy ski area

Tignes is one of France’s most famous ski resorts. It combines traditional Savoyard charm with a modern, international atmosphere. The ski resort is known for its excellent snow conditions at 2,100 metres above sea level and at Grande Motte glacier between September and May.

Tignes is Europe’s second-highest ski resort and a great winter sports resort nestled in the breathtaking high-altitude landscapes of the Vanoise massif. Together with equally famous Val d’Isère, Tignes is part of the interconnected ski area of Espace Killy. It regularly hosts major sporting events and is a hotspot for freestylers.

More about the ski resort

The Espace Killy ski area and the ski resorts of Tignes and Val d’Isère offer a varied mix of slopes. Thanks to its high-altitude location, the area around three-thousand-metre summits such as the 3,656-metre-high Grande Motte boasts excellent snow conditions and an extra-long season.

The sporty slopes of Tignes are located at altitudes between 1,550 and 3,456 metres above sea level. This results in particularly long descents and great altitude differences.

Extra event tip: Every year in March, the Winter X Games Europe take place in Tignes. The spectacular event sees the world’s best winter extreme athletes competing in various disciplines.

INTERSPORT Rent tip

Our RENTertainers recommend

Grande Motte is waiting for you! A spectacular ride with the state-of-the-art “Funiculaire Grande Motte” underground cableway takes you up to Tignes’ landmark glacier, which is also the region’s highest summit. Up on the glacier, a choice of one-of-a-kind descents is waiting for you.

For instance, one of the world’s longest blue slopes winds its way over several kilometres past the glacier to Val Claret. The slope is also suitable for beginners. Advanced skiers and snowboarders will enjoy the red slope, which covers a whopping altitude difference of 1,400 metres on its way down to the valley.
