Where to ride in Tignes?
Being such a huge area, Tignes has so much to offer whether it’s a bluebird day or its dumping with snow. Tignes is renowned for its freeriding options and lines as well as the quality pistes and often it depends on the weather where you ride.
Powder days – Tignes has so much to offer in terms of freeriding and off piste particularly the ‘Naturides’ which offer 9 black slopes marked out with beacons but not groomed. Natural freeride conditions are preserved, allowing you to test the off-slope area in a secure way. Brilliant for sensations seekers! Just be fully prepared, have the correct equipment, know your route and know your limits
Bluebird piste days – Some of our favourite runs can be so easily accessed from the bottom of town. The Palafour lift is a seasonaire favourite, accessed from the centre of Le Lac, Palafour offers a freshly groomed wide run with so many natural hits a lips, perfect for tearing up the piste or having a jibby play about. The Grattalu run is another favourite. Accessed via the Tichot lift in Val Claret this run is perfect day in day out. Often when a lot of the other runs are icy Grattalu gets the sun early in the morning which warms the snow a little creating the perfect base for fast carvy laps. The Grattulu also plays host to the Tignes park. Here you can find features for all ability’s including a baby park for those starting out to massive features and kickers for you seasoned pros!
