Mountain destination for your winter vacations: why choose Tignes?

The snow has arrived in Tignes. You dream of a stay in the mountains, but don't know which resort to choose? Tignes is THE resort for a successful winter vacation!

1 - A spectacular ski area...

Located at 2100m altitude, in the heart of the Northern Alps and the Tarentaise valley, the resort of Tignes has everything to please you. 

Its ski area, culminating between 1550m and 3450m of altitude, offers breathtaking landscapes between mountains, lakes and glacier. 

Enjoying the reputation of the most sporty resort in the Alps, the linked domain of Tignes & Val d'Isère offers nearly 300km of slopes. Beginners and young skiers will be able to progress at their own pace on dedicated learning areas. The more experienced skiers can take advantage of the snowy slopes and the numerous ski lifts to perfect their turns. 

If you are a skier and want to try other disciplines, how about a day of cross-country skiing in Tignes? The 10km of trails will allow you to discover the surroundings of the frozen lake.

And for the most courageous among you, your vacation in Tignes could be the opportunity to put on a pair of ski touring shoes to discover a wilder mountain. Venture on one of the 5 secured ski touring trails to work your cardio in an exceptional setting with a view on the Alps summits.

2 - Take advantage of your ski vacations to have a gourmet break!

What would be a stay in the mountains without tasting one (or more) of the traditional Savoyard specialties? 

Here is a list of our must-have winter meals:

The Savoyard fondue is a tasty mixture of melted cheese and white wine. Beaufort, Comté, Emmental, Abundance: several combinations are possible. 

Raclette is a cheese made from raw cow's milk that is melted and served with potatoes and cold cuts.

The tartiflette, a meal based on potatoes, bacon and onions au gratin with Reblochon cheese! We also recommend a delicious variant, the croziflette, where the potatoes are replaced by crozets.

The diots of Savoie: the diot is THE sausage of our mountains. Natural or smoked, these sausages are traditionally pan-fried then simmered with onions and white wine. Accompany them with a potato gratin or crozets and you're done!

And if you just want to sit back and indulge your taste buds after an intense day in the mountains, there are many restaurants to discover in Tignes!(Click here to find the restaurant you need.)

3 - Off-ski: many activities to do in Tignes in winter.

Today, the mountains in winter are not only for winter sports enthusiasts! Non-skiers: Tignes is also THE ideal destination for you to spend a pleasant stay in the mountains. 

Your stay can be sporty with many activities offered at Tignespace. Racquet sports, team sports, golf simulator, skateboard ramp, climbing wall, weight room: you will find a wide choice of sports disciplines to help you boost your red blood cell production. 

Your stay can be an opportunity to take time for yourself. Take the time to stroll through the stores of the resort, take the time to walk on the banks of the frozen lake, take the time for a yoga session at altitude or take the time to relax in the Lagon wellness area.

Your stay can be an opportunity to share good times with family or friends: ice rink, cinema or unusual meal in an igloo.
