With a variety of extraordinary restaurants, incredible shops and plenty of fun activities to choose from, it’s no surprise that the resort is proving to be a popular choice for European winter sports fans.

Set on two levels, travellers can use the bottom level to reach the Grande Motte Glacier or take the Tichot chairlift to the Tignes side of the mountain. On the other hand, the top level is where the Tufs network is used to reach Val d’Isere or explore all of the village’s bars, shops and restaurants.

Snow conditions in Tignes Val Claret

Tignes is one of the highest resorts in the Alps and due to the Grande Motte glacier guarantees skiing virtually all year round. The ski season here runs from November to April and the runs are immaculately maintained with snow cannons covering many of the trails.

Skiing in Tignes Val Claret

Across the Tignes ski area, there are plenty of excellent runs for visitors to choose from. Whether you’re a beginner on the slopes, or an experienced veteran, there are multiple options and the resort is a fantastic place for travellers to gradually build up their skills.

There are some extraordinary chutes and couloirs for experts to enjoy, along with some inviting freeride terrain and great intermediate runs to allow travellers to develop their skills even further.

What’s more, with so much of the stunning French wilderness to explore, it is easy for travellers to be left mesmerised by this unbelievable area of the world.

Apres ski, restaurants and other activities in Tignes Val Claret

There is no shortage of busy bars, restaurants and clubs in Val Claret, with many offering apres ski happy hours. There is a regular and free bus that travels between all the villages, up until midnight, so you can also explore the nightlife in the neighbouring villages.

For amazing views, drink and food, Grizzly’s is the best option in the resort. An outdoor fire pit helps to provide a truly cosy feel for visitors, while the cocktail menu is one of the most popular in Val Claret with several delicious options available.

The Aspen Coffee Shop is another great location to relax in after some time on the slopes. You can expect tasty local food here at affordable prices, but try to get there early as it can get very busy.

For a more sophisticated experience, try La Table en Montagne. You can expect to pay quite a lot for the dishes here, but the price is certainly worth it, with meat and fish cooked to perfection on hot stone tiles.
