The birth of a winter sports resort

Already in 1936, Tignes was a pioneer as far as winter sports was concerned and welcomed tourists kitted out with skis on the village’s one and only ski-lift.
After the barrage was constructed in 1952 and the Tignes’ ancient village was engulfed by water, Tignes managed to bounce back and finally settled at 2100 m altitude in the heart of a unique natural 360° arena.
In the 1970’s, the face of Tignes changed once again and in so doing, quickly became the international and  mythical french alps ski resort that it is today.

Did you know? Tignes was elected "the Sportiest city" in 2008 by the Edaily sports paper "L'Equipe".
