The Worlds Best Snowboarding - Tignes


Tignes is a French ski and snowboarding resort not far from Val d'Isère in what is known as the Espace Killy region. While the town's rather intrusive architecture may not be to everyone's liking, the snowboarding in and around Tignes is superb, and its location right next to the Grand Motte glacier enables year-round snowboarding.

"Tignes is served by the large well linked ski area called L'Espace Killy. Tignes shares this area with Val d'Isere and with over 300km (190 miles) of pistes & extensive off-piste it has become one of Europe's premier resorts. Due to its altitude, up to 3500m, Tignes has a reliable snow record" (Tignes.co.uk)
