Tignes is a reference regarding its accessibility to disabled skiers: the resort hosted the Paralympics in 1992, as well as the IPC World Cup in 2015 and again in 2018.
Each part of the ski area is accessible, depending on the level of the skier
In Tignes, each piste is accessible, except the top part of the glacier ("3500", "Glacier" and "Descente" pistes) as the Grande Motte cable car isn't suitable for people in a ski-chair for safety reasons (in case of an evacuation followinf a breakdown).
The access to the Grande Motte pistes is possible thanks to the Lanches and Vanoise chairlift. The funicular is not advised because of the steps leading to the station, but it is nonetheless used by the disabled athletes who train on the glacier in fall and summer.
Lastly, the Brévières and Tignes le Lac (from Tignes 1800) areas are accessible thanks to the Brévières chairlift and the Boisses gondola (not the Sache gondola as the current gondola is too small to accommodate a ski-chair).
As for the ski passes, the Tovière sales desk located in the Maison de Tignes in Le Lac, features a special desk for disabled people accessible from the ground floor of the Maison de Tignes.
