Winter

The ski areas of Tignes & Val d’Isere form the Espace Killy, one of the largest ski areas in the world, with 300kms of slopes for all ability levels. It also offers one of the longest ski seasons in the world.

Tignes Les Brevieres combines the charm of a traditional alpine village, with the convenience of fast lift access directly into the Espace Killy. The village offers all the amenities you need on a winter sports holiday, with a choice of restaurants and bars, equipment rental shops, a supermarket, newsagent/tobacconist, post office and its own ski school.

There is a wide range of activities on offer for all ages, both on and off the slopes.

Skiing & Boarding

The skiable area of the Espace Killy comprises 300 Kilometres of ski runs located at altitudes ranging between 1,550 metres and 3,450 metres, at varying levels of difficulty: 22 green runs, 68 blue runs, 39 red runs, 26 black runs.

In addition to these runs, there are: 9 slalom courses, 1 mogul field, 2 snowparks and 1 gliss’park.

There is also extensive backcountry skiing to be explored in the area.

Tignes Les Brévières is located in the North-East part of the Espace Killy. Sunny from the early morning, you benefit from the views of the Grande Sassière (3748m), the Chevril lake and the Mont Blanc peak. Its highest peak is the Aiguille Percée (2748m), a huge rock with a hole in it through which you can ski (conditions permitting).

The village has its own ESF ski school and nursery slope, with a free lift for beginners. Intermediates will enjoy the long sweeping red and blue runs that return to the village, whilst the more advanced will be challenged by the infamous black Sache piste and off-piste terrain.

Families

Le Belvedere is the ideal base for a family ski holiday. The village has its own ski school and nursery slope with a dedicated free draglift. (Note that lessons only start at Les Brevieres in the school holidays, however some classes start from Tignes Le Lac all season).

There is a lift situated 100m from Le Belvedere which offers direct access to and from the main bubble lift and ski school meeting point. Better skiers can ski down beside the lift (snow conditions permitting).

Lift passes are free for the under 5’s and there is a 20% reduction from the adult price for children aged 5 to 13. There is also a family lift pass offering reduced rates for families of at least 4 (see the Lift Pass section for more details).

Nanny Service

We have our own qualified nannies during the winter season who will look after your children aged 6 months and over. They can collect older children from ski school if required and return to your accommodation where they can give them lunch and entertain them until you return from skiing.

Both indoor and outdoor activities are available e.g. board games, colouring, sculpting, sledging and building snowmen. We also have a good stock of children’s videos and DVD’s. They will also be available for evening babysitting. As places are limited, we advise you to book in advance – ask for further details.

Instruction & Guiding

Ski schools

The village of Les Brévières has its own ESF ski school and nursery slope with dedicated FREE drag lift. (Note that lessons only start at Les Brévières in the school holidays, and some classes start from Tignes Le Lac all season). Click here for further details.
Group & private lessons are also available with Evolution 2 and Snocool. We particularly recommend Snocool for their small class sizes and individual attention.

If for any reason the local ski schools do not suit your requirements, we can suggest local independent instructors and guides who have extensive experience working with both adults and children.

We are happy to provide help and advice and to make bookings on your behalf.

Equipment Rental

We recommend Intersport in the main street at Les Brevieres.

They have an extensive range of equipment to suit all requirements and have long opening hours.

They also offer an overnight equipment storage service if you don’t want to have to carry your equipment back to your chalet or apartment.
What’s more, they offer a 25% discount for our guests. There’s no need to pre-book – just ask for a discount voucher when you arrive in resort.

Lift Passes

There are two lift pass options available: Espace Killy, offering access to all the lifts in Val d’Isère as well as Tignes, or you can choose to ski only in the Tignes sectors of the ski area.

A 6-day pass for the Espace Killy entitles you to a FREE day at Les Arcs and La Rosière, and a 20% reduction on a day pass at Sainte Foy.

Passes are free for the under 5’s and those aged 75 and over, but they do still need a pass. Passes for children aged 5-13 and seniors aged 65-74 cost roughly 20% less than adult passes.

The Family lift pass allows all members of the same family (a minimum of 4 fee-paying skiers, including at least one parent) to ski at the reduced rate.
For details of prices and to book online, visit the website.

We recommend that you take out the Carré Neige insurance with your ski pass if your travel policy does not cover you for evacuation from the slopes in the event of injury. You can find details of the cover provided on their website.

Guests at Powder Ridge chalet can relax in the hot-tub whilst sipping a beer or glass of champagne, whilst all our guests can enjoy a drink or two on their sunny balcony or terrace. In the village, you’ll find a variety of bars and restaurants for an après-ski drink or meal.

Our favourite restaurants include:

L’Armailly (opposite the bubble lift station), a bustling restaurant offering pizzas (including take-aways) and local specialities.
