Winter ski area


In Tignes, we ski before... and after anyone else!


The Grande Motte glacier is due to open on September 28th 2019.


Each part of the ski area will then open depending on the snow falls, allowing you to ski from 3.456 m (top of the Grande Motte cable car) to 1.550m (Tignes le Brvéières village).
