Not yet converted to spring skiing? Softer snow, milder temperatures and clear slopes: spring is the perfect season for relaxed skiing in Tignes. From the first gliding sensations to the most frantic schuss, the slopes in spring offer an enchanting playground for all skier profiles. And the après-ski is only sweetness on the sunny terraces in front of the reborn nature. A great way to leave winter behind!
Softer snow to ski on
With its 300 km of slopes perched between 1550 m and 3450 m, the ski area of Tignes Val d’Isère guarantees snow for skiers of all levels until the beginning of May. And not just any snow. In spring the snow warms up in the sun and becomes softer under the spatulas until early afternoon. A real pleasure to ski. Experienced skiers will choose the early morning when the snow is harder with the refreezing. This is also the time of year when the slopes are at their best, while the mountains are still enjoying great snow heights. Ideal conditions to fully enjoy the slopes and have fun!
Longer days, milder weather
In spring time stretches, we enjoy long days on the slopes and on the deckchair of a bar at altitude, forgetting the watch. When you’ve had your fill of the heights, there’s still time to come back to the hotel and relax at the Montana Village Nordic spa or in the private Jacuzzi of your suite at the Montana Suites. Afterwards, what a delight to stroll around Val d’Isère and do some shopping, have a good meal in the charming village of Tignes les Brévières, or taste a good wine at the Levanna Wine Bar, facing the Grande Motte glacier. Unless you prefer to bask in the glow of the sun on your bedroom balcony?
The Tignes fluid slopes just for you
After the Christmas and February vacations, the traffic changes and the trails become fluid. No more jostling and waiting at the lifts! The stations are quieter, but still quite lively. We have lunch at the top or at the foot of the slopes without waiting in line, and we enjoy all our favorite activities without the stress of seeing them sold out. A ski holiday in spring always rhymes with peace and quiet!
The ideal season for children and beginners
You will have understood, between the quality of the snow and the calmness on the slopes, spring is the ideal season to start skiing or to improve at your own pace. In the spring, the slopes are smooth and you forget about the fear of getting in the way of other skiers or being pushed around. We appreciate the softness of the mercury which goes up, we wear lighter clothes, making our movements freer. We are also less afraid of falling: the snowy coat absorbs like cotton in this season! It is also the ideal season for our little ones to learn to ski with us or at the EFS, without being cold and in the best conditions.
A special freestyle snow
If the spring snow makes it easier for beginners to slide, it is also popular with freestylers who come to practice more relaxed. The soft snow allows them to perform tricks with risky landings! Spring is the season of many freestyle events and you can even treat yourself to a course in Tignes Val Claret. Finally, the big snowfalls also exist in spring: the April powder snow offers good slots to the snow lovers. Some purists maintain that the real ski season begins … at the end of March!
Off-season prices in Tignes and activities throughout the resort
In spring, you can also take advantage of low prices on a multitude of activities in Tignes Val d’Isère, and discounts on ski passes and rentals with the “Last traces Spring ski” offers. And that’s not all: Tignes Val d’Isère is even more festive in the spring, because it’s the beginning of the festival season, freeride competitions and fun team events like the Yeti Race!
In spring, the snow begins to melt in the middle altitude and the mountain pastures slowly appear. We admire the first buds, the greening soil and the fauna that shows its nose after hibernation. The birds sing and we witness the spectacle of the mountain coming back to life. You can enjoy it at the foot of the slopes on the vast sunny terrace of the Arbina or while splashing around in the heated outdoor pool of the Montana Village. What a delight!
