TIGNES

One of the best all-year round ski resorts in the Alps

Why go there?
  • Grand Motte Glacier, opened all year long
  • More than 300 km of slopes
  • Easy access to Val d'Isère

The name of the oldest skiing region of the Savoie Alps says it all. Named after Jean Claude Killy, the triple downhill Olympic winner of Grenoble in 1968, a skiing vacation in the skiing region Espace Killy is always a benefit. Espace Killy is officially described as the most beautiful skiing area of the world encompasses three mountains and two valleys, and joins the two skiing regions Val d‘Isère and Tignes. The slope range for skiers is correspondingly generous, from beginner to professional levels. 156 slopes with a total of 300 kilometres of endless, wonderfully prepared slopes for every taste offer enough variety. Nearly 90 lifts transport ski vacationers through the skiing area quickly and conveniently.

Countless off-piste slopes, glacier slopes on the Grande Motte, slopes through the woods to Val d’Isere and into villages below Tignes entice true ski and snowboard aficionados to Espace Killy, along with numerous deep snow slopes or the world famous racing slopes at Rocher de Bellevarde in Val d´Isère – a defused version of the Olympic slope for men that is open to normal skiers. Sophisticated mogul slopes at the Solaise and the ski canyoning stretch into the Gorges de Malpasset round off the offer for professional skiers.

Thanks to mostly blue and red slopes, as well as numerous practice slopes with partially free ski lifts, the skiing region Espace Killy is also the ideal destination for beginners of all ages to gather first experiences on the slope. 821 snow canons guarantee snow from the end of November to May.
