TOP TIPS FOR TIGNES!

Tignes store is ran by Rose, Blair, Vicky, Mark, JJ and Beth. This epic team of 6 will have you looking fresh and fully fed!

Our Tignes store is a one of a kind Planks clothing store and cafe! (Best coffee in Tignes... We have been told) Who doesn’t like some snazzy ski wear, a pie and a pint?! Planks Tignes really does have it all. Located on Les Rond Point des Pistes in Val Claret next to Sherpa and opposite Tichot chair lift. Come on down, meet gang and pick their brains about the endless good times Tignes has to offer!

WHY WE LOVE TIGNES! BY THE TIGNES STORE STAFF...

  • The Ski area is totally epic and perfect for serious shredders or cruisy cats. From the off piste of the fingers to the long chill pistes from the top of the Grande Motte... Tignes got you covered. Tignes is also linked with Val d, opening massive options for fun filled adventures.

 

  • The social scene is crazy good. Want an epic Apres session? Love sitting in the sun and listening to live music? look no further than Loop Bar in Le Lac. Sit on there sun terrace looking at the mountains, get happy hour deals and rock out to live music from bands like Queens of the Snow Stage. Loop's got it all. Weather not so hot? Feeling a bit fancy? Next door to loop we have Cave Du Loop for some mind blowing cocktails and some really good times. We have sampled pretty much all of them and 10/10 would recommend to a friend. Tired after a day shredding? Want a stupendously delicious evening meal? Just over the lake in Val Calret is Colouir where you can enjoy a relaxed, tasty and overall freaking delightful evening. Your welcome. We could list about a million more so just come and find them all for yourself.

 

  • It’s just god damn beautiful here in every way. Seriously why wouldn’t you want to come here?

 

  • We have a big frozen Lake you can walk across... I mean that’s pretty cool.

 

  • We have some really massive fingers (the skiing kind) that look crazy cool at all time.

 

  • ALSO Tignes has lots of other fun activities to do... rock climbing, husky sledge rides on the lake, ice diving, paragliding, swimming and many other sick things to keep you busy and buzzed on life.

 

  • The community. They are just the most rad people ever and welcome anyone and everyone to shred, party and enjoy!

STAFF PICK SKI RUNS

Victoria: The chair to nowhere. It’s got so much open, rolling terrain to have fun with! Also the view from the top back down to Tignes is stunning.

Rose: launches. Top to bottom of pure gorgeousness. If you love going fast this is heaven.
