For those looking for a great ski resort, you really don’t have to look any further than Tignes. It quite literally has everything that a skier could want in a resort, with fantastic slopes, great après ski, and a whole host of amazing accommodation – you certainly won’t regret it if you choose this place for a catered chalet. Tignes is popular with a range of people, from families to friends and university trips. |
But it’s all well and good waxing lyrical about the benefits of staying here – what we should really do is show you! Below we’ve highlighted some of what makes this resort so special and why people continue to book into a catered chalet (Tignes specialises in fantastic chalets) year after year.
The terrain of Tignes is among the best of any ski resort anywhere in the world. It truly warrants the label of world class, and it’s often ranked very highly when it comes to destinations for advanced skiers in the Alps. There is also plenty of suitable terrain for those who are classed as intermediate or beginners – basically, the resort is great for everybody to get their skis on! Whether you’re here with friends or with your children on their first ski trip, you’ll find the slopes are perfect for you.
The terrain here is not the only thing you’ll be able to enjoy when you leave your catered chalet. Tignes is famous for having very reliable snowfall – in fact, it has the best snowfall of anywhere in France. This is largely due to the fact that the slopes all have an elevation of over 2000m, so throughout winter they stay powder fresh.
For those looking to advance their skills while on holiday in the region, there are a huge number of excellent instructors who can take your slalom to the next level (or even just get you going in a direction of your choosing!). There are some really great ski schools for you to choose from – for adults and children – as well as a number of independent teachers who can impart their own decades of experience.
There are a number of accommodation types in the resort, but perhaps none capture the essence of the place quite like a catered chalet. Tignes has a number of different areas, each with easy access to specific slopes and with a different atmosphere after the sun has gone down. If you stay in a catered chalet, Tignes will really open up to you and your group and provide you with the perfect base to return to after each brilliant day.

There are so many more great things about the area, but we can’t cover them all in one article. There are plenty of other benefits, besides those outlined above, of coming here and staying in a catered chalet. Tignes will delight people with any conceivable interest and skiing ability, and you’ll certainly not regret making the trip and staying somewhere comfortable where all of your catering needs are well taken care of.
