About Tignes Les Boisses
Tignes is a commune in the Tarentaise Valley, in the Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France, known for the highest skiable area in Europe and the longest ski season in Europe. It is located in the Savoie region with good transport links in and out of Lyon, Geneva and Chambery.
It is best known as a snow sure ski resort. Together with neighbouring Val d'Isère, it forms the "Espace Killy" ski area. The proximity of two resorts offers one of the most seamless links between ski areas in Europe, in effect creating a single skiable area of over 300 km piste. Whilst not the largest ski area in the Alps, the level of integration between the two resorts has the effect of making it feel as one, often described as feeling like one of the largest single ski areas as a result.
Tignes les Boisses (now Tignes 1800) is one of the 5 Villages of Tignes. It is located at 1800m in altitude. It is the new hype village of the resort at the heart of Tignes & Val d'Isère linked area; It opened its doors in December 2013. Everything is brand new, especially the lift. Structured around the church, a replica of the one in the former village which has been flooded by the waters of the dam, Tignes 1800 will let you enjoy all the assets of an international resort, added to the tranquility of the village life!
Chalets made of stone and wood, a direct access to the 300 km of slopes of the ski area, thanks to the new state of the art cable car of les Boisses (seating for 10 people), ski in ski out residences, plenty of on-site services to make your stay easier and, on the long-run, an area which will be specially converted for beginners: the new village has been particularly designed for families!
A little culture: Tignes 1800 Church
The parish Church of Saint Jacques de Tignes, built in the 50s, is a replica of the one that was destroyed when the dam was open. It show fine furnishing and baroque-style paintings.
