The renowned resort of Tignes is located in western Savoie, in the Rhône-Alpes region, next to the italian border. The ski resort includes Val Claret, Tignes-le-Lac, Le Lavachet, Tignes les Boisses and les-Brevières. The first three ones are really close, just 2100 mts away. However, Les Boisses and Les Brevieres are located in the valley.
In total has more than 300 kms of slopes and a great area for cross-country skiing. Together with Val d’Isère they make l’Espace Killy, one of the best ski areas in the world. Its great height, 3456 mts over sea level, offers good quality snow throughout the season. Tignes’ main resort is located at 2100 mts over sea level, with a wide offer of hotels and apartments, divided in two zones, Lac and Val Claret, although due to the valleys development, we’ll also find all kinds of lodging at lower levels.
Nearby we’ll find the Grande Motte glacier, that can be reached by chair lift or cable car.
