Snowboarding Holidays

Tignes, France

Snowboarding in France

The French Alps is world famous for skiing and snowboarding and offers a great selection of resorts with wide pistes, which are perfect for snowboarding holidays. At 2,100 metres, Tignes is a high altitude resort and has a reputation for being one of the most  snowboard friendly destinations in Europe. 

Stay at our cosy chic Chalet Hotel L’Ecrin, situated in Val Claret, one of the main villages in Tignes, just a 10 minute walk from the ski lifts. We have accommodation to suit any party size, from families to larger groups and solo travellers, who want to try their hand at snowboarding or skiing in a beautiful alpine setting.

And don’t worry if you have never been on the slopes before, you can book snowboard lessons with our ski school partner ‘Evolution 2’.

Discover Tignes for your next snowboarding holiday

Family-friendly Tignes is much-loved for being one of the first European resorts to have embraced snowboarding. The resort regularly hosts national and international events, is a favourite among snowboard manufacturers and competitive teams for training camps and other events, and is an ideal location for an instructor-led course.

Snowboarding doesn’t get much better than in Tignes, France with its beautiful scenery, great snow record, high mountains and famous après ski and nightlife.  Tignes is in the Espace Killy region, which links with Val d’Isere ski area. It offers over 300km of pistes, long wide runs to blast down, a fantastic snowpark and freestyle zone, making it perfect for all levels of snowboard enthusiasts.

Take to the slopes at any age

Snowboarding can be learnt at any age, but as with skiing, it’s best to book lessons with a professional to get off on a firm footing. Most schools will teach children to snowboard from the age of seven, although technological advances have made it easier for younger children to learn. Mark Warner works closely with Evolution 2, an experienced ski and snowboarding school in Tignes to ensure the best quality teaching. All the instructors we use are English speaking and skilled at teaching children too.

We can also arrange snowboard and boot hire for everyone, from beginners to advanced freestylers. Parents will also be able to go out during the day knowing their little ones are in good hands thanks to the professional childcare offered by our hotel.
