Tigne, together with Val d’Isere, is forming the L’Espace Killy, which is currently meaning more than 300 kilometers of ski tracks, almost 120 bars and restaurants. In addition, there are more than 150 different shops in the entire area, together with world-renown schools, which will surely satisfy your appetite for shopping, but also the thirst and hunger for ski and learning it correctly. Tigne, with all its complexity and diversity has become one of Europe’s premier ski resorts, not just a symbol for France.
Because of its high altitude, this ski resort is currently having a very good snow record. It is now visited by more and more tourists that are avid of snow and skiing, and mostly because of the reduced snowfalls which have been recorded in the lower-altitude tourist resorts, in the past recent years (mostly because of the severe climate changes that are amplified many times in the mountainous regions).
Tigne is one of the two ski areas in France that is always listed as “snow-sure resorts”. Tigne is not just an ordinary tourist resort. This place is special mostly because of its slopes. The slopes in both of the zones are currently covering all the four of the French slope difficulty levels, from green, which represents very easy slopes for skiers, to black, which represents difficult ski tracks.
In the case you, as a tourist, are interested in some “night fun”, there are some clubs, suitable for each and every type of tourist. So, the village is very lively, mostly because of the great variety and diversity of bars and clubs.
More than 28000 visitors are annually coming in Tigne. There are numerous apartment complexes, but also there is a variety and diversity of 2 – 4 star hotels & catered chalets from were any type of tourist can choose its favorite. In the case you are feeling a little bit bored, you can anytime try something new, such as ice diving, hang gliding, dog sledding, ice climbing, and also skidoo riding.
In conclusion, Tignes is really beautiful. Being located next door to the more renowned ski resort of Val d’Isere (Savoie region), Tignes is looking at the first sight as a poorer and less attractive tourist resort. Although all this, Tignes represents a very good tourist destination, never mind the season when you are coming here.
