Cheap ski hire Tignes Les Brévières
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. Le Lac, Le Lavachet, and Val Claret forms the core of the resort, but sitting below them at 1550m, Les Boisses offers something quite different. Les Brévières is perhaps the hidden gem of Tignes, hiding under the central villages. These cobbled Savoyarde streets and traditionally built farmhouses date back to the 13th century, contributing to the wonderful atmosphere in the village. Though it still claims the usual conveniences needed to make it a successful ski resort, Tignes Les Brévières has managed to stay unspoilt by upscale modern development. For a jumping après ski scene this is not the town for you, but for those skiers that prefer village character and charm over the excitement of bars and restaurants, Les Brévières is for you.
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.
