Do you want to enjoy skiing in the summer months and get away from the heat? In Tignes you can do it!

 

 

How can I get to the Glacier to ski?

 

Summer skiing takes place on the Grande Motte glacier, one of the highest in Europe for skiing and snowboarding . To access there you can do it with your ski pass , which will be delivered to you at the ski resort's ticket offices.

In winter, this glacier is given special care to be able to keep the snow in places where it is usually scarce in summer, such as rocky areas. The Perce-Neige funicular will take you from the centre of the town of Tignes in just 7 minutes. You will arrive at the restaurant de la Grande Motte and if you want to continue your journey on the funicular you can ascend to an altitude of 3,456 meters, to the highest point of the ski resort.

During the summer season, the resort offers you around 20 skiable kilometers . These are between 3,656 and 3,000 altitude, so there are always perpetual snows. Depending on the degree of difficulty of the slopes, you will find blue, red and black.

 

 

Does the ski pass include any other activity apart from skiing?

 

Of course! Boredom in Tignes is not allowed.

Some of the accommodations also include the My Tignes Open card, a card with an integrated microchip that will allow you to access various activities in Tignes Val Claret and Tignes Le Lac.

 
Do you want to know how it works? Very easy! When you arrive at your accommodation, they will give you this card for free and the holder of this card has 2 activities per day that you can use whenever and however you want by previously booking online. That is, if you travel 4 days you will have 8 activities. If you want, you can do them all in one day or distribute them to do the distributed activities. It's up to you!
 
And what happens if your accommodation does not include the My Tignes card? You can buy it directly at the Tignes Tourist Office for € 50.
 
 
 

What activities does the My Tignes Open card include?

 
With this card you can enjoy free access to the following activities:
 
  • Air rifle shooting (adults only, 2 tickets per card)
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Beach Soccer
  • Beach volleyball
  • Crazy Airbag (from 8 years)
  • Soccer area
  • Mini-golf (1 access per card)
  • Multi-sport area
  • Petanque
  • Ping pong
  • Lagon Pool (2 entries per card)
  • Tennis (in the Val Claret activity area, tennis racket rental not included)
  • Water sports centre: pedal boat, canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle, catamaran.
  • Elastic beds
  • Archery
  • Water jump
  • Kayak
  • Paddle

* Some activities require booking in advance.

 

How many days are enough to visit Tignes in summer?

 

In summer, the Tignes resort does not have as many skiable kilometers as in winter, so it may not be necessary to spend a whole week. Surely, with about 4 or 5 days you will have enough to enjoy some skiing in the morning and all the activities in the afternoon.

 

 

When is the best time to ski in Tignes in summer?

 

Our advice is that you make your booking to go as soon as possible. If it is in June, better. The reason is that the resort opens in mid-June and at that time, due to the altitude of the glacier, some temporary snow still tends to fall, so it is the perfect time to enjoy the powder snow in midsummer.

But if you can't go in June, don't worry. During the months of July and August the days are hotter so apart from skiing, you can also practice other water activities in Lake Tignes. Is incredible!

 

 

What is the best way to get to Tignes?

 

- By plane:

Tignes has several nearby airports including Lyon, Geneva, Chambéry and Grenoble . The closest to access the resort is Lyon or Geneva, both are 2.5 hours away.

Once you land at the above airports, you can hire a transfer or rental car to get to the Tignes resort

 

- By car:

If you want to enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery in summer, our recommendation is that you travel by car. Tignes resort is only 2 hours from Grenoble, 4 hours from Turin, 5 hours from Montpellier and 7 and a half hours from Paris.

Subway speed you up to the glacier, one pass. The views of Mont Blanc, amazing !!!
The staff of the lifts, not all, but some were very drifters. They were not for you ... And the quality of some tele drag was quite deplorable. For what the track could modernize crawls area and snowpark beginners and freestyle.
