Tignes les Brevieres

Thinking of a Tignes ski holiday? Tignes is proud to be snowsure, with summer skiing on the glacier, one of Europe's highest ski areas. Tignes les Brevieres is a quiet alternative to other resorts.

Why Tignes Les Brevieres Ski Resort?

  • It has direct ski access to the massive Tignes Val d'Isere area (formerly known as Espace Killy)
  • It’s a quiet alternative to the other bustling resorts in Tignes
  • It has an excellent beginners’ area

Tignes Les Brevieres Information

Tignes can be found in the Tarentaise area of France, in the Northern French Alps and is a purpose-built ski resort within the Tignes-Val d'Isere ski area (formally the Espace Killy), which ranks as one of the best winter sports centres in the world! Huge investment, progression and development over the past 50 years has seen Tignes grow into one of Europe’s most comprehensive ski destinations, yet it has still been able to maintain its traditional French Alpine ambience.

Originally, there were just two villages making up Tignes - Tignes Les Brevieres and Tignes itself. Both had existed since the 13th century. The first rumours that a dam was to be built in the valley began circulating in 1928 and by 1952 the 'Barrage de Tignes' was completed and the original town of Tignes was lost beneath the waters of the newly created Lac du Chevril. The hydroelectric lake could, at the time, generate power for up to 10% of France. Monies paid to the community from the government in damages for the loss of Tignes helped to build the first ski lifts and buildings in the new villages of Les Boisses, Le Lac, Val Claret and Lavachet, whilst Les Brevieres housed 5000 workers in a series of huts. This had earned the village the title of the 'Wild West of Savoie' during the construction as men came from all over France to earn fortunes only to lose them again gambling, drinking and fighting in the many temporary bars and casinos. Fortunately, once the clean-up was completed, Les Brevieres remained pretty much intact, and in the 1970s the first chairlifts were installed.

You can stay in picturesque Les Brevieres and ski the Espace Killy shared by Tignes and neighbouring lift-linked, Val d'Isère. Parts of Les Brevieres date back to the 13th century, but it’s still at a snow-sure altitude of 1550m.

A regular and very efficient free shuttle bus service connects all the villages of Tignes (except Tignes les Brevieres). There is a gondola that connects Tignes les Brevieres with Tignes 1800 which can be used by pedestrians and you can then use the bus system from Tignes 1800 to access the altitude resorts of Tignes such as Tignes le Lac and Tignes Val Claret. There is also a possibility of using the gondola in the evening - more information on this can be found in resort.

Tignes is set at the foot of the twin peaks of La Grande Motte Glacier (3656m) and La Grande Casse (3852m) – meaning that you can even ski here in the summer! This ski resort has a highly sporting reputation and hosts many celebrities on training courses, including the French national football team.

Tignes is proud to have been elected ‘The Sportiest Town’ by the French daily sports paper, ‘L’Equipe’! This was due to various factors including its outstanding sporting infrastructure, hosting numerous sporting events on an international scale, welcoming high-profile sports stars (such as the French football team), the high level of Tignes-born sportsmen and women, and a sports-mad clientele and community. Many towns are famous for their flowers but Tignes has sport in its blood!

The bustling ski resort of Val d'Isère can be easily reached from the ski area of Tignes, via the ski lifts (30 minutes), bus (15 minutes) or car (7 minutes) - allowing easy access to a whole host of shops, restaurant and bars - great for après-ski or an opportunity to explore for non-skiers.

TIGNES SKI AREA

The two ski resorts of Tignes and Val d'Isère make up the Tignes-Val d'Isere (formally Espace Killy) ski area, located in the Tarentaise area of the Savoie department in the Northern French Alps. There are multiple villages in Tignes including:

  • Tignes Val Claret
  • Tignes Le Lac
  • Tignes 1800
  • Tignes les Brevieres
  • Tignes Lavachet
  • and then Val d'Isere on the other side

It provides a large well-linked and high-altitude ski area with a very reliable snow record (it's open 11 months of the year!), thanks to the La Grande Motte Glacier and the fact that it backs onto the peaks of the Italian border. According to 'Where to Ski and Snowboard' Tignes is listed as "Good snow guaranteed for a long season - about the best Alpine bet". You can also ski the glacier in the summer months.

As a whole, the Tignes-Val d'Isere ski area has become one of Europe’s premier ski resorts. With its varied ski terrain, easy ski access and excellent lift system, it offers something for everyone – from complete beginners to thrill-seeking off-pisters! 

Tignes has a lot to offer including the Grande Motte glacier served by a modern funicular railway which takes experts as well as intermediates to the panoramic platform at 3030m within just 7 minutes! The Perce-Neige funicular, which took 4 years to construct, departs from Tignes Val Claret. It carried its first passengers in April 1993, and can transport 3000 people per hour travelling at a speed of 12 metres per second! At the top you will find a beautifully located panoramic restaurant with the most stunning views, brilliant ski slope options and the cable car to conquer the Grande Motte glacier!

The cable car will take you to new heights at 3456m. It can transport 3000 people per hour thanks to its two cabins and all at a speed of 10m per second! From the top you can enjoy a thrilling ski down to Tignes Les Brévières, have a mountain guide take you to the very summit of the Grande Motte glacier or as a pedestrian simply marvel at the glorious surrounding mountains from the various viewpoints.

Tignes invests money every year in the lift system, to ensure high performance and make sure you reach the slopes in comfort and as fast as possible. This ski resort has certainly come a very long way since the very first lift installed in the old village of Tignes back in 1936!

Tignes Val Claret has direct links to the Tignes ski area, the Grande Motte glacier and the whole ski area. The Funicular, Tichot, Bollin, Fresse, Les Lanches and Tufs lifts are all within five minutes of each other. Tignes Val Claret is set on two levels: the bottom level with access to the Tignes side of the mountain via the Tichot chairlift and the Grande Motte glacier via the funicular, while the higher level takes you over to Val d’Isère via the Tufs chairlift. The ‘Palafour’ chairlift will take you up the Tignes side of the mountain where the recently built Toviere gondola provides the main route to Val d’Isère in just 5 minutes, thanks to its bright 10-seat gondolas that can transport 3 300 pers/hour.

From Tignes Val Claret you can get a chairlift to the ‘Col de Fresse’ and from here you can access the ski slopes of Val d’Isère also – within 30 minutes by ski or a 15-minute drive, so you really have two resorts in one.

For those with their own car, yet more skiing is available fairly nearby in the following ski areas: Sainte Foy is a 30 minute drive from Tignes Val Claret; Les Arcs is 45-60 minutes; whilst La Rosière and La Plagne are about 60 minutes away. And don’t forget you have Val d'Isère just 25 minutes by car (or ski across from Tignes) plus the other Tignes villages. A day of skiing at most of these resorts is possible at no additional cost with lift passes valid for six days or more.

TIGNES SKIING

TIGNES BEGINNERS

In the village itself, there’s a free drag-lift with its own gentle sectioned-off nursery slope which is free of through traffic. Tignes les Brévières is particularly suitable for beginners, with a network of tree-lined green and blue runs immediately above the village. This is an excellent area for children. Once more confident, beginners can take the lift up to Tignes 2,100m, and from there reach all the Tignes and Val d’Isère slopes.

For complete beginners: enjoy FREE access to 5 lifts in Tignes to practice your first curves and gain confidence before hitting the slopes of the Tignes-Val d'Isere ski area: ‘Bollin’ and ‘Claret’ in Tignes Val Claret, ‘Lavachet’ in Tignes le Lavachet, ‘Rosset’ in Tignes le Lac, and ‘Pitots’ and ‘Brévières’ in Tignes les Brévières.

Lognan’ is ideal for novices and families as the slopes are broad and not especially difficult.

TIGNES INTERMEDIATES

For adventurous intermediates, Tignes is one of the best ski resorts, with a big lift network and extensive intermediate slopes. Tignes boasts the Grande Motte glacier which is highly recommended to intermediates with a bit of confidence. Take the funicular train from Tignes Val Claret and within just 7 minutes you will find yourself at 3030m with a good selection of great blue, red and black runs. Low intermediates will find the blue runs are quite wide as well as lots of fun!

TIGNES EXPERTS

Tignes is a mecca for experts and offers many challenging runs. With experts and the more adventurous in mind, Tignes has converted many of its black runs into ‘Naturides’ – meaning the runs are marked, patrolled and avalanche protected, yet never groomed – therefore preserving the natural terrain and gaining layers of powder and mogul fields.

Naturides® runs:

  • Toviere: Paquerettes, Envers de Campanules runs, Grizzly, Aster
  • Palet: Guerlain Chicherit and Golf runs

The scenic Vallon de La Sache black run down to Tignes Les Brevières should not be missed: overlooked by the Sache glacier, this run has a descent of 1200m vertical down a breathtaking valley in the national park. You start at l’Aiguille Percee (2750m) and arrive down in Tignes Les Brevieres below the Tignes dam. Another not to be missed is the long black run from Tovière to Tignes Le Lac.

TIGNES OFF-PISTE

Tignes-Val d'Isere has some of the best lift-served off-piste in the world! Easily accessible and beautiful yet challenging, steep and interesting – it has it all and is sure to please the thrill-seekers in your party. From intermediate to free-rider, there is a vast variety of terrain to suit all levels. For first-timers Lognan is ideal.

The main off-piste areas in Tignes can be found above Tignes Val Claret, Tignes Le Lavachet, on the Grande Motte Glacier and in Tignes Les Brévières. It is imperative to have an expert guide or instructor, as it is very easy to get lost, safety has to come first and also by having an expert you will get to experience the very best runs.

In Val d’Isère, the major off-piste areas are: La Daille, Solaise, Bellevard, Pissaillas and Fornet. La Vallée Perdue (The Lost Valley) is a popular off-piste run, from the bottom of Tommeuses down into La Daille experience tall rock walls, narrow canyons and (depth of snow depending) even a small cave to crawl through!

For the more adventurous of you, Heli-skiing is available in Tignes! However, heli-drops are actually forbidden in France, so it’s a slightly bizarre form. From Tovière you can ski down towards the Lac du Chevril to be retrieved by a chopper!

TIGNES CROSS-COUNTRY

Tignes-Val d'Isere has 52km (33 miles) of cross-country trails dedicated to Nordic skiing. Tignes has four trails, three of which are located along the valley between Tignes Val Claret and Tignes-le-Lac – all of these are flat and easy. The fourth trail is more challenging and can be found in Tignes Les Brévières, winding around the lake ‘Lac de Tignes’, surrounded by trees.

TIGNES SNOWBOARDERS

Quite rightly, Tignes is very popular with snowboarders. Not only is there a snow park, boarder cross and Glisspark but there are wide pistes such as Carline and Piste H plus lots of easily accessible off-piste areas – perfect for snowboarders. Another bonus is that drags can generally be avoided as gondolas and chairs are more favoured.

The terrain park is located in Tignes Val Claret and is known as the ‘Swatch Park’, due to Swatch installing cameras on a small jump at the end of the park.

A larger snowpark can be found in Val d’Isère and is known as the ‘DC Val Park’. Located at 2500m on the La Daille/Bellevarde sector, access from Tignes Val Claret is via the Bollin Express, from Tignes le Lac via the Toviere gondola from Val d’Isère via the Daille funicular or Bellevarde cable car. This park has been approved by The French Snowboard Federation, proving its high standard. This snowpark is equipped with 1 x 3 seated chairlift, 2 draglifts, 1 rope tow, 1 quarter pipe, 1 boardercross for all levels, different jumps and hips for all levels, several low/high, single/double rails plus 1 Rainbow and 1 Fun Box. There is also a hut for refreshments and a deck chair area where you can sit back and relax, whilst listening to some music and taking in all the slope action. Not to be missed: Late March is Valpark Week, where the pros arrive for a helicopter photo-shoot!
