Along with Val d'Isere, Tignes makes up the huge Espace Killy ski area. It is one of only a few resorts in Europe classified as snow-sure and boasts a very long winter season plus summer skiing on it's glacier. The area is well known for it's good off-piste, world class half-pipe and snowboard parks. Spread over five resort centres with Les Brevieres at the bottom being the most picturesque. Further up on the dam is Les Boisses (now renamed Tignes 1800!) then Le Lac and Lavachet which are probably the best spots for nightlife and shopping along with Val Claret at 2100m.
Do not be misled by the map, Grenoble Airport is actually situated half-way between the cities of Grenoble and Lyon so transfers from here may take longer than you think! Airlines using this destination include EasyJet and Monarch.There are two routes from here either on the motorway (faster by 10-15 mins) or the more direct and very picturesque route through Chartreuse. Your driver will be happy to take either provided there are no time constraints.
