Deals & discounted ski passes in Tignes
Are there any ski pass deals and discounts in Tignes?
You bet there are! Tignes offers discounted ski passes for families, online purchases, beginners, disabled skiers, those coming late in the ski season...
Family ski pass discounts
Tignes seems to have combined or done away with "group pack" discounts for 4 to 7 people, and somehow merged it with the "Family lift pass", but kept the name as the "Tribu" (Tribe) pass. Many other resorts tend to use "Tribu" to mean "Group pass". Confused? So were we!
Anyway, Family discounts are available on the Tignes-Val d'Isere pass only, with the purchase of a minimum of 4 ski passes and a maximum of 7 ski passes, of the same duration (between 6 and 13 days) and same validity dates. The deal means saving €30 per person off the usual rates of each pass. The TRIBU must be composed of 1 adult or senior and at least 3 children/teenager or 2 adults or seniors and at least 2 children/teenager. In order to benefit from the discount. Adults are aged 22 to 74 years old; Children are aged 5 to 17 years old; Teens/students are 18 to 21 years old. The family pass offer is only valid on 6 to 13-day duration passes and proof of age and student status will be requested.

Where to buy ski passes in Tignes
There are two main ways of purchasing your Tignes ski pass: online and in resort.
How to buy your Tignes ski passes online – A step-by-step guide
To save time and money, you can pre-order your Tignes ski passes online. The process is really simple:
- Click on the button below, which will take you to Tignes' main lift pass website
- Select the area you want to ski in (Tignes & Val d'Isere or Tignes only), how many days you want, the start date you require and how many people of each age group are in your party
- Any discounts you may be eligible for will be automatically applied to the price of your passes
- Choose if you want ski insurance or not – we recommend you add it
- State whether you already have a rechargeable card (in which case you'll need to insert its 23-digit WTP number – see below for more information) or you don't
- Create an account with your personal details
- Choose whether you want your ski passes to be delivered to your home address for a small fee (allow at least 12 days for delivery outside France and 8 days within France), or you prefer to pick them up at one of the cash desks
- Pay for your ski passes
That's it, you're all ready to hit the slopes!
How to buy your Tignes ski passes in resort
You can also buy your pass at a lift pass office when you get to resort. If you're uncertain of the pass you need or are looking to see how the weather is before buying your pass, then this can be a good option. The lift pass office staff is also great at advising exactly which pass is best for you while some passes, such as pedestrian and beginner lift passes, are only available at the ski pass offices. Be warned, though, you may have to queue, especially at busy times.
How ski passes work in Tignes
Ski passes in Tignes are loaded onto a rechargeable SmartMedia card, which is more or less the size of a credit card and has a chip that stores the lift pass information. This hands-free card is read remotely at the entrance of the lifts, so you just need it to put it in a pocket on your left side (many ski jackets have a special pocket on the left sleeve) and the turnstile will activate remotely as you pass through. Keep it away from your credit cards, mobile phone or other ski passes as they may obstruct the card reading.
What is a ski pass WTP number? You can recharge and top-up your Tignes hands-free card as many times as you want over several years. In order to do so, you need to enter the card's WTP (Wireless Transaction Protocol) number when purchasing your pass online. You can find this number on your card. After you've recharged your hands-free card in advance, you can generally go directly to the lifts without having to stop at the lift pass offices.
