From the drive across the dam, you know you're in for some stunning world-class views featuring lakes, glaciers and rock formations that look like they could have been sculpted. Tignes and Val d’Isère deliver everything the eye could possibly want from a mountain range!

Resort Overview

Tignes is one of Europe’s highest ski resorts and one of the world's best, perched at 2100m and part of the Espace Killy ski area, with direct access to Val d’Isère, offering 300km of pistes at altitudes of 1550m to 3450m, so you can be sure of superb skiing.

Tignes Le Lac

The village is placed right in the heart of the ski area, with runs heading off in all directions, including one just 30m from the door of the Chalet-Hotel Rosset! It's a lively village with a mix of purpose-built and traditional wooden chalets, which also gives you easy access to the some of the best skiing in the world.

Snow-sure with excellent variety

The resort is known for its diversity of runs, easy access to the slopes, and great snow reliability. With over a metre of snow falling historically each month from December through to March, you can be confident that you're in the right place whether you're looking for nicely groomed pistes or fresh powder in the back-country.

Epic views from the top of the Grande Motte mean you're short of breath for all the right reasons! So why not see the sights and enjoy the runs with our ski hosts whilst staying at the Chalet-Hotel Rosset.

We Love

More time in the mountains

As lovers of the mountains, we want to be able to spend as much time as possible in them, and the high altitude of Tignes gives us the chance to sneak in a few extra trips in early December and late April.

Extensive off-piste

Such an expanse of off-piste terrain that's easily accessible from the lift system offers plenty of opportunities for morning or afternoon trips without having to commit to a full day out in the back-country.

Lunch stops

We know our evening meals in the Chalet-Hotel Rosset are more than enough to keep you full for the week, but it's a holiday and you'll love the options you have for a classic long French lunch in some of the best restaurants that the Alps has to offer.

Linked to Val d’Isère

Being able to pop over to Val d’Isère and enjoy the atmosphere there is a great treat.

Snow & glaciers

We love snow in all its forms, from beautifully groomed pistes to deep powder, and Tignes gets loads of it from early November through to late April, which keeps the pistes pristine and the off-piste fluffy!

With not just one but two glaciers, you can be sure of great skiing and snowboarding all year round.

Equipment Hire

Ski Miquel partners with Intersport at a shop that's so close to the Chalet-Hotel Rosset it even has the same name, Le Rosset!

You're assured a great service, and just pop back in if you have any comfort issues at all. If you're looking for a little something extra, they can also provide custom-moulded insoles for your boots, and they even sell heated gloves for those really cold days on the mountain!

Ski School

Tignes has a great range of ski schools, all with slightly different offerings, but we would recommend the following local schools:

ESF Tignes

ESF ski schools offer a structured learning path, complete with badges for each stage of progress, great for kids that want to track their progress year after year. Their lessons cater to skiers of all levels, from seasoned enthusiasts to complete beginners.

Oxygène Tignes

Oxygène is the leading family-friendly, English-speaking ski & snowboard school in the French Alps. Their mission is to make skiing and snowboarding accessible, enjoyable, and memorable for everyone. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced skier, they’ve got you covered.

Other Activities

Tignes has so much to do if you fancy a day off skiing, you'll need a whole holiday to get through it all, but to name a few:

  1. Bun J Ride: Imagine a combination of ski jumping, bungee riding, and zip-wire. With a harness attached to elasticated cords, you’ll travel down a 30-metre runway into a 4-metre void - It’s an absolute must for thrill-seekers!

  2. Ice diving: Clad in a neoprene drysuit, mask, and breathing bottled air, you can explore the strange underwater world of Tignes Lake - It’s the closest thing to being a penguin!

  3. Moonbiking: Hop on a moonbike and explore the snowy landscapes by moonlight - A unique way to experience Tignes.

  4. Horse or husky sled rides: Enjoy a ride through the snowy terrain with horses or huskies - An unforgettable experience!

  5. Tandem paragliding or microlite flight: Soar above the mountains and take in the incredible views - Perfect for adventure enthusiasts!

  6. Snowshoe hiking or ski touring: Explore the pristine winter landscapes on foot - Tignes has many beautiful trails to discover.

Tignes Le Lac

The historic village of Tignes, originally nestled in the valley, was flooded when the dam was built in 1952. This also explains a bit about why Tignes Le Lac was purpose-built and we have to call the fact that it's not a traditional wooden village, but what a place to build a ski resort, and when the setting sun casts its light, even the concrete blocks look good!

For those looking for traditional Tignes, you can ski down to Tignes Les Boisses and check out the meticulously reproduced old church. The Saint Jacques de Tarentaise church, visible today at the entrance of the village, is an exact replica of the original, and it also houses original furniture and altarpieces.

Tignes Le Lac is right at the heart of the resort and provides you with direct access to some of the best skiing and snow in the Alps, with the Chalet-Hotel Rosset only yards from the slopes.


There is a great variety of bars in Tignes Le Lac, giving you lots of options for a bit of après-ski, or for those with any energy left to burn, some late-night dancing.

Jam Bar

Located at the bottom of Le Rue de la Poste, this cosy bar is perfect for warming up with a coffee or hot chocolate. It’s also a great spot to wait for others doing a quick lap of the Palafour chairlift. The Jam Bar offers a wide range of beers, wines, spirits, and delicious Italian cuisine. Families and groups of all sizes are welcome here.

Loop Bar

The Loop is an ideal venue for après-ski. During the day, enjoy its sun-drenched terrace with a great view. At night, it is popular with seasonaires and holidaymakers alike. Expect friendly vibes, expertly-made drinks, and legendary theme parties!

Cave du Loop

This wine and cocktail cellar bar is run by the same folks behind Loop, Braseros, and Couloir. It’s friendly, comfortable, and serves cocktails, spirits, beers, and wine. You can also pop upstairs to Loop for more fun in the evening.


A hidden gem at the top of Rue de la Poste, L’Embuscade is a friendly French bar with a lovely cosy atmosphere. Enjoy funky tunes, play pool, and savour well-priced drinks. Perfect for après-ski or late-evening entertainment.

The Marmot Arms

This friendly English-run bar offers lively après-ski music and a good happy hour. It’s a favorite amongst locals and holidaymakers. Grab well-priced burgers and drinks earlier in the evening, and later on it turns into a lively joint with dancing and DJ's.

Jacks Club

If you’re up for bowling and dancing, Jacks Club is the place to be! Located next to the Spar supermarket in Tignes Le Lac, it features 10 bowling lanes, a games arcade and a nightclub, so you can dance along to 80's tunes and other dance music well into the early hours.


Tignes Le Lac has a great range of restaurants, meaning you can get everything from a quick takeaway pizza to keep the cost down right through to fine dining.


A cosy Italian restaurant nestled in the heart of Tignes, offering a delightful dining experience. The ambience is warm and inviting, making it an excellent quiet bite on the staff night off, or call in for lunch. The Tiramisu is well worth a try!

Wanaka Crêperie

More than just crêperie with some great salads and a range of sweet and savoury crêpes, it's a great place to stop for a quick lunch if you are around the centre of the village.

La Queue De Cochon

This is a charming gem located in the centre of the village, offering a delightful dining experience for both locals and visitors alike. It specialises in European and French fare, with a twist of creativity. The ambience strikes a balance between rustic charm and modern elegance. A great place for a not-too-fussy meal on the staff night off.

La Ferme Des Trois Capucines

Offering a delightful dining experience that combines Savoyard cuisine with a touch of flare. The menu celebrates authentic French and European flavours, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. Step inside this converted farmhouse and feel the cosy atmosphere - It’s like dining at a friend’s home and is great for either lunch or an evening meal. Make sure you try the duck!

Winter 2024/25 will be our first season in Tignes, so we have included below a few reviews from our other resorts. Why not book a holiday to Tignes and be the first to review us at our new Chalet-Hotel Rosset?


Top Holiday - Ski Miquel Lauterbrunnen

Fantastic ski holiday to Chalet Rosa in Lauterbrunnen under the excellent care of Ski Miquel. Chalet was great, and the staff couldn’t do more to keep us fed, watered and generally very happy! The food was amazing thanks to chef Lee and his attention and kindness to our two little ones (5 and 7) went well above and beyond (cake decorations, kids choice of food, all round entertainer and pretty good boarder too). Dirk led the team extremely well and the chalet girls were all top. The whole experience was very friendly as our families all became friends. As for the resort - the views cannot be beaten and the ski runs, bars, food and general conditions were excellent. Even the trains were fun! Would definitely recommend.

Amazing week in Switzerland

We’ve just returned from an amazing week at the Chalet Rosa travelling with Ski Miquel. The chalet is in the beautiful Lauterbrunnen valley with breathtaking scenery. We were extremely lucky to share the chalet with a great group of people and very helpful attentive staff. The ski hosting by Dirk, Milly and Lee was brilliant, they treated us like friends rather than customers. The food provided by Lee, the chef at the chalet was exceptional. A 5 star experience overall.

Return to skiing after 5 years

Staying in Chalet Rosa was such a good experience after several years away from skiing. The chalet is simple but pretty and clean. The food was exceptional with the amazing chef Lee. He was also fun and joined in the last days ski hosting. Dirk, Milly and team Rosa were also perfect hosts and seemed genuinely committed to the chalet guests having a great holiday. Details, like the ski locker in the station, the easy transfers, the chalet bar and of course the ski hosting all added to a very relaxing, fun week. Lauterbrunnen itself is a beautiful village with nice walks and amazing views. Transport is easy up to the upper villages and slopes. We would certainly like to repeat this visit.

Excellent stay

Excellent chalet managed by the magnificent Martina and her wonderful team, who go above and beyond to make sure all guests have the best possible week on the slopes. Lovely atmosphere in the chalet, great food, superb hosting. One of the best Ski Miquel experiences I have had. Highly recommended.

Fabulous chalet and skiing experience with Ski Miquel

We went with Ski Miquel half board. The chalet team led by Carol were fantastic hosts. The food breakfast and dinner was all excellent culminating in one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Chalet always tidy and clean. Great pre and post dinner lounge making new friends and acquaintances. The ski guiding was excellent for a first timer to Saalbach.

A Chalet not to miss

We really enjoyed our stay at Chalet Rosa, the staff were excellent and so attentive, the food was probably the best we have encountered, thanks to Lee the chef. The Lauterbrunnen valley is breathtaking and should be on everyone's bucket list. This was our third holiday at the Chalet and we are intending future trips.

Great chalet, perfect location, fabulous week!

Once again we had such a fun holiday with Ski Miquel all due to the fantastic team and chalet. Our 4th time to this well located and comfortable chalet and it certainly won't be our last. Carol as always was on top form ensuring everyone was well looked after and always dealt with the most random guest issues (and us in general) with patience and a smile. She brings a lot of fun to the chalet whilst maintaining high standards and we very much appreciate her. Special mention has to go to Lorenzo for the food which was the best (by far) we have ever experienced in our now 5 years with Ski Miquel. A really noticeable step up, with good sized portions and super flavours. Everyone in the chalet was commenting on it and tearing ourselves away from the fun we were having at apres ski was always worth it for the lovely dinners. We spent the week ski guiding with Jake which we also thoroughly enjoyed. Again a great balance of fun whilst ensuring we were all safe and knew where we were going. Finally a big thank you also to Cara and Sophie who were also a credit to your company through excellent service and high standards across the week.

Ski Miquel Delivers Again in Austria

My party of 21 had an enjoyable half-term week with Ski Miquel in the underrated resort of Bad Gastein. Chalet Tannenburg is ideally located 5 mins from the main gondola with wonderful views over the town and valley below. As with all SM accommodation, the rooms are basic but hot water is plentiful and the beds are comfy. Chalet Tannenburg’s dining area has space for all the guests and the atmospheric bar, which is open to the public (but only those ‘in the know’) has the cheapest prices in the resort at 4.5 Euros for a large beer. We loved skiing in the Gastein valley, which has reliable snow and plenty to offer but is not for near beginners and timid intermediates. We hired our skis and bought our lift passes thru’ SM, as this offered the best value for money and included handy ski storage at the main gondola. The après ski in resort has something for everyone, with The Silver Bullet & its live band a favourite with our group. As ever, the SM team were wonderful, with Chef Paulo doing justice to the menu and Emily, Daisy, Alex and Will looking after us all exceptionally well – thank you guys! If you’re seeking a good-value ski holiday, in a solid location with good food, a cheap bar, friendly staff & guests but no frills, then look no further than Ski Miquel. We’ve been coming to their resorts for 6 years now and will be back!

Fantastic find

Hotel chalet Lucille was a great find, very clean and welcoming, it was nice to have lovely soft towels and pristine bedding. We thought we’d treat ourselves and go for a chalet holiday instead of our motor home this ski trip and we certainly wasn’t disappointed. Although in the past we’ve had a chalet experience, I have to say that this surpassed our expectations, all of the staff went out of their way to help or advise when needed, so hats off to Sam, Luke, Molly and the two chefs (sorry I didn’t catch your names) it was like a home from home. What was even better was the ski hosting, which we’d never experienced previously, it was a revelation someone actually taking you round the area, skiing to the ability of the whole group and the choice of groups to go in depending on your ability. We loved it. Finally I can’t say enough about Martina, what a great lady, someone who goes above and beyond for her guests, always with a smile and a great sense of humour. The days we went skiing with her were brilliant, loved every minute. We’d never heard of Montgenevre as an area but the skiing was brilliant and when other areas lacked snow that wasn’t an issue here. They well deserve their accolade for the best groomed pistes. Will definitely be returning to Montgenevre.

Excellent holiday, brilliant value

The chalet team were all excellent, they bent over backwards to ensure that we had a great holiday. Lee, the chef, was very talented, and provided top quality food. The best thing was the “ski hosting”, which got us out nice and early, and showed us the area. It also meant that we skied as a group with others from the Chalet, so it was a very sociable way of getting out and about. It was also really good to be able to store skis and boots in the ski locker at the station - having been to a “ski in, ski out” chalet for years, I dreaded the walk in ski boots, but need not have worried! The holiday was good value, and the company are really friendly and nice to deal with. I will definitely be booking with Ski Miquel again.
