Tignes and Val d'isere

Val d'Isere (village at 1850m, top 3456m) definitely lives up to its hyped up reputation, part of the Espace Killy network.

Val d'Isere is primarily an off-piste resort. It has a wide variety of pistes, good slopes for beginners and a reputation as all-round one of the world's top resorts. Advanced skiers, intermediates and beginners will find plenty of skiing at every grade. It is also relatively easy for a competent advanced skier to take off for a remote corner of the resort and still make it back to a pre-arranged romantic lunch date with an anxious novice partner.

There are no less than eight entry points give access to the mountain. The most convenient and quickest way into the system is to catch either the Funival underground funicular from La Daille or the 30-person jumbo gondola that also rises to the top of Bellevarde from near the swimming-pool. From here a network of pistes and lifts fan out towards the Rocher du Charvet in one direction and towards Tignes in the other. The Tommeuse chair provides a swift link to 2704m Tovière, starting point for a choice of runs down to Tignes. From the other side of the nursery area in Val, a choice of cable-car or a detachable-chair takes you up Solaise and on towards Le Fornet. From the top of the Manchet chair the long red Mattis run brings you down to the hamlet of Le Laisanant.

If need to select a black run, then it has to be “Couloir du Chevreuil". The snow was so deep that it acted as a break and a buffer. Only ski them when the snow is good.


There are loads of reasons to love Tignes, eventhough it has unsightly architecture. The slopes are the main attraction; the Espace Killy is one of the best areas in Europe for all abilities. The nightlife is good too, and the people are friendly. There are a number of areas to Tignes which can be confusing at first. Initially you will see Tignes Le Brevieres (at 1550m), a traditional and peaceful town with a beautiful Baroque church. You will then arrive in Tignes Les Boisses (at 1850m). The hub of Tignes is focused at 2100m, which is split into another three areas: Lavachet, Le Lac and Val Claret. Lavachet and Le Lac are next to each other and it's easy to walk between them. Val Claret is a bus/car journey away from the other two. Both areas have quite a lot going on although Val Claret has better access to the slopes.

The focal point of the mountain is the 3656m Grande Motte, reached from Val Claret by an efficient but claustrophobic funicular or by a long two-stage quad-chair. Wide pistes for all standards lead back down to Val Claret. From Val Claret and the main village of Tignes other lifts lead up to the Col du Palet, where you can ski off-piste with a guide all the way to Les Arcs and linked La Plagne. The route off the back of the col is prone to avalanche and should only be attempted with a guide. Lifts also bring you up to the 2748m Aiguille Percée, with very unusual rock formation. The black La Sache run, which leads from here all the way to Tignes-les-Brevières at 1500m, is wonderful when groomed but otherwise offers a long mogul run for bump enthusiasts only.


Some of the more challenging but lovely runs you can find in Val d'isere are:
Couloir du Chevreuil in Val d'isere – the snow is so deep that it acts as a brake and a buffer.

The Fornet sector of Val d'isere is a genuine black rarely suitable for skiers of less than good advanced ability. In poor snow conditions its a desperate scratchy run: frequently icy, littered with old stumps, narrow and tortuous. However, with fresh snow falling and poor visibility it can be a delightful tree run.

Pers in Val d'isere has some of the best powder skiing in Europe. The skiing is not difficult, if pisted it would probably be rated red, but it is both isolated and extensive.

Cugna in Val d'isere is one of the best runs in the Alps. If pisted, it would probably rate as a medium black, left to develop naturally it is a superb run in virtually any snow conditions. In places it is fairly steep, around 35°.
