Summer 2022 Skiing and Snowboarding in Tignes



Tignes ski area has up to 750m vertical and 20km of piste available in Summer. Open from 18 June 2022 until 31 July 2022 with single day Adult tickets €38. Lifts from 07:15 until 13:00 - last lift down at 16:35

The ski areas opens early (Funicular opens 06:45) and close at lunchtime - And no, it's not like skiing on ice, although hard and pisted first thing, the snow softens very quickly and is often heavy slush by noon. Catching it at the right time can give great conditions and a foot of fresh in the summer isn't unheard of!

There's also randomly organised tennis competitions, maybe a dog contest and potato growing challenge (known as EuroSpud), football tournament, fancy dress parties, Summer Ski Jumping and various Fêtes & BBQ's to attend including the big Le Praz and Les Allues Fêtes with spectacular fireworks displays.
