C'est parti : la liaison Tignes & Val d'Isère ouvre ce samedi 1er décembre dans la matinée, sous un soleil radieux ! La journée s'annonce belle pour les skieurs, qui vont pouvoir profiter des chutes de neige des dernières 24h sur un domaine étendu.
On October 17th, Tignes was the first ski resort to open in France. This saturday 24th November, in addition to the pistes already open, Tignes will open its famous piste "Double M". It will enable the skiers to ski down from the Grande Motte glacier (3 456m) to Val Claret village (2 100m).
On November 18th 2018, Tignes is organizing the third edition of the first ski-mountaineering race of the season: "La Reprise". A good opportunity for every ski lover to challenge their friends and compete against the world's finest athletes such as Kilian Jornet and Adèle Milloz, who took part in the race in 2016 and 2017!
On July 26th 2019, Tignes is hosting the penultimate mountain stop of the Tour de France, two days before the traditional arrival on the Champs Elysées. July 26th promises to be a festive and friendly day for all cycling enthusiasts!
The joint work of the Tignes’ teams and the weather conditions enable now to plan a partial opening of the ski area of the Grande Motte glacier on October 17th. The opening of the ski lifts and slopes will be adjusted according to the weather conditions.
Located at an altitude of 3,032 metres on the Grande Motte Glacier at the gateway to the Vanoise National Park, the new Tignes aerial tramway belongs to a new generation of equipment. Its two open-top cabins will offer passengers a unique 360-degree view of one of the most beautiful panoramas of the French Alps.
Last winter’s impressive snowfall has not endured, and the predicted summer and autumn quality skiing conditions have not transpired. The Tignes glacial ski area has not been spared from the record temperatures documented in Europe this summer and over the past few weeks.
A quintessential après-ski experience, Le Cocorico is far more than a simple bar! This new party place, with its impressive 400m2 open air terrace is set in a fabulous location, at the foot of la Grande Motte cable car in Val Claret.
