Cheap ski hire Tignes Le Lac
The main villages of Tignes are set on a beautiful mountain plateau and offer some of the finest lift-accessed slopes in Europe – or anywhere else in the world. For most people, however, the main appeal of Tignes and the entire Espace Killy area, which stretches to include neighbouring Val d’Isère, is the exceptionally long ski season here. With a high altitude point of 3,455m, Tignes’ altitude means that the slopes are open here for 10 months of the year.
Tignes lacks the luxury of Val d’Isère, but you can live well here for significantly less money, and with a good choice of restaurants and a bubbly nightlife. Together with Le Lavachet and Val Claret, Tignes Le Lac forms the core of the resort. The après ski is excellent here, try Loop Bar or the Marmot Arms, and when they close you be sure that Jacks Bar will still be buzzing. Tignes Le Lac is also one of the best places in the resort for restaurants; La Chaumière, for example, has one of the best menus on the mountain for traditional, wholesome Savoyard food. If all these is still not enough, we recommend Le Lagon watersports complex in the centre of the town, or the indoor climbing wall close by.
Although Tignes has pistes to suit all, they are pushing their expert credentials at the moment, with ungroomed pistes, and an innovative new cross between off-piste and a freestyle jumps park. It’s a much more serious skiing atmosphere here than compared to Val d’Isère; sport comes first at Tignes, and you're more likely to find visitors staying on the slopes as long as possible rather than partying the night away. You’ll never be lost for much choice at Tignes though, the vastness Espace Killy ski area is astounding, with 300km of pistes reaching from 1,550m to 3,456m. Tignes is also very snowboard friendly; long before the other French resorts welcomed snowboarders, Tignes was something of a haven.
