Skiing and snowboarding is obviously what being here in Tignes is all about!
The ‘Espace Killy’ boasts one of the finest ski and snowboard areas in France and the world. Boasting more than 300 Km of marked ski trails, nearly 100 efficient modern ski lifts, including two funicular railways, three snow parks and endless, lift accessible off-piste skiing, the area has something for everyone.
The vertical range is from 1560 metres in Les Brévières to 3500 metres at the top of the Grande Motte cable car which remains open for most of the year to service the summer skiing and snowboarding area. Les Brévières in Tignes is served by a six-man high-speed bubble ski lift which whisks you up to 2100 metres and then on to the liaisons with Tignes and Val d’Isère.
Don’t, however, instantly dash off to the rest of the Espace Killy, as Brévières boasts some of the finest skiing and snowboarding of the whole area. Highlights include the never-ending ‘Sache’ black run which drops over 1400 vertical metres into the village, wide reds and blues for the intermediates, tree runs for bad weather and some truly fearsome 50 degree couloirs and un-patrolled wilderness areas in the ‘Vallon de la Sache’.
