Long descents, varied slopes and guaranteed snow all year round on the Grande Motte glacier. The ski resort of Tignes, located in the French Alps, is the second highest resort in Europe at 3,456m. Its 76 tracks spread over 150 kilometers offer a unique holiday in the snow for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. Together with its neighbouring resort of Val d'Isère, they form the domain Espace Killy with 154 tracks along 300 kilometers of skiing and an area of 10,000 hectares. Dominated by the valley of the Tarentaise and protected by the Vanoise mountains and Mont Pourri (3,779m), it provides excellent conditions for skiing and snowboarding. With a vertical drop of 1,900m, it finds its highest point in the glacier of Grande Motte and the lowest one in the town of Brévières (1,550m). Its domain is divided into the sectors of Le Lac and Val Claret, and can also open its slopes in summer thanks to the height of its peaks and the climatic conditions of the region. Blue, red and black runs run along the glacier, which makes it a formidable option for skiing when all the other resorts are closed. Both in summer and winter, its snowpark located at the top of the resort delights the most avid freestylers with its half-pipe, jumps and boardercross in a sunny environment. There is also an area for those who love cross-country skiing. Freeriders can enjoy 3,200 hectares of off-piste. Tignes is also known for having hosted major events such as the acrobatic skiing events of the 1992 Olympics or one of the stages of the Tour de France in 2007. The charming village of Tignes is located at the base of the resort at 2,100m with traditional architecture, excellent accommodation options, direct access to slopes, and a wide range of cafes, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The ideal combination of sport and relaxation with amazing views of the Grande Motte glacier and Lake Tignes!
