Shared Transfers to and from Tignes
Shared transfers are an excellent low-cost option. You will be taken right to, or from your hotel or chalet, no matter where you are staying in Tignes. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be collected from or dropped off at different locations in Tignes.
You might have to wait for more passengers at the airport or you might have to wait for other passengers to be dropped off in Tignes before you, consequently your journey time might slightly increase. However, you will always be notified in due time of your exact pick-up time.
Contrarily, there is always the likelihood that you are lucky, with all passengers coming off the same flight or from flights landing within minutes of each other. Or, drop-offs in Tignes might be close to one another or you might be the first to be dropped-off in Tignes.
Either way, the shared transfer experience requires a bit of “give and take” and a thoughtful attitude from all passengers.

Tignes is a commune in the Tarentaise Valley, in the Savoie department, in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.
Tignes consists of five villages that vary in altitudes and offers some of the best lift-accessed slopes in Europe.
The architecture does not do the splendid nature justice, as Tignes is a purpose-built resort and accommodation is mostly covered by large concrete blocks. However, many successful initiatives were undertaken in recent years to beautify Tignes's architecture, thus the overall aspect of the resort.
Situated at 2,100 m (6890 ft) altitude, Val Claret is the highest of the five villages that form Tignes and provides easy access to the glacier. Together with Tignes Le Lac, Val Claret might be the most convenient place to stay, as it provides a varied choice of hotels, restaurants and shops.
In Tignes Le Lavachet, which is situated slightly lower than Val Claret and Tignes Le Lac, you will find cheaper ski-in/ ski-out apartments.
Tignes Les Boisses and Tignes Les Brévières are located further down the mountain, at 1,800m (5,9095 ft) and 1,550m respectively (5,085 ft). They are both well linked to the ski area, but they are further away from the central hub, so the choice of shops and restaurant is limited.
Tignes hosted the freestyle skiing challenge for the 1992 Winter Olympics
Skiing in Tignes
Together with neighbouring Val d'Isère, Tignes forms the "Espace Killy" ski domain, which hosts over 300 km of ski slopes, serviced by 82 lifts.
The ski area, named in the honour of the famous skier Jean-Claude Killy, who was raised here, has one interesting particularity. Although not the largest ski area in the Alps, Val d'Isère and Tignes are so well interlinked and the level of integration between them is so high, that the domain feels one of the largest.
"Espace Killy" is ideal for mixed groups and for families, as it offers 22 green runs, 61 blues, 46 reds and 25 blacks.
Tignes and its slopes are partially located on glaciers, the domain's varied terrain reaching from Tignes Les Brévières at one end to the Pissaillas glacier above Val d’Isère at the other.
Tignes' highlight is the Grande Motte glacier, accessible from Val Claret. The top cable car station is located at 3,456 m (11338 ft) altitude and represents the starting point for some very spectacular descents, both on and off-piste.
Another great thing about Tignes is the fact that the highest slopes are open during summertime!
Hiking in Tignes
During summertime, Tignes becomes a must among hiking passionates, as it offers a 55,000-hectare recreation area in the heart of the preserved wilderness.

Moreover, there are three pedestrians lifts that you can use, which are included in the My Tignes card.
"My Tignes card" is offered to you for free by many accommodations providers and it provides access to many sports activities, such as biking, beach soccer, beach volley, catamaran, pedal boat, swimming pool, trampoline, etc.
Tignes is renowned for the family facilities it provides. The "Kid's Club" receives children between 4 and 16 years-old and they offer specially designed schedules according to the kid's age and needs.
The schedule for children aged 4 & 5 offers a different theme each week. In the morning, there are sports activities and in the afternoon kids engage in various creative workshops and group games.
