Tignes Snow Report & Forecast

Discover the latest Tignes snow conditions

Ana Hernández, Tignes Editor | Published

Sadly, the ski season in Tignes has been cut short quite abruptly due to the Coronavirus crisis but we wanted to give it the farewell it deserves.

Luckily, we can ski in Tignes in the summer. The glacier usually open for skiers and snowboarders from mid-June to late July so that's only three months from now! The team at is working hard to get everything ready for the summer season – keep an eye on our site for the latest information from Tignes.

Summer is a wonderful time in the mountains, with plenty of things to do as well as skiing, including hiking, mountain biking, cycling, mountaineering, sightseeing or just relaxing in a spa or sunbathing on a bar's terrace. And, of course, the snow will return to the slopes of Tignes next winter and we'll all be able to shred all the Tignes pistes again.

So, goodbye for now and see you here in a few months!

Latest Snow Dump

View all Tignes dump alerts

Ana Hernández, Tignes Editor | Published

And the prize for the snowiest month of the season goes to... March! So far, it's snowed pretty much every day in Tignes since the last week of February.

Just like we predicted in our last dump alert, Monday saw around 50cm of fresh snow on the higher slopes, taking the total of fresh snow over the weekend to around 1 metre. Tuesday and Wednesday were sunny but the snow returned on Thursday.

On Friday morning, we woke up to around 25cm on the slopes. Many lifts have suffered from delayed openings. The avalanche risk has risen to 4/5 and the local avalanche bulletin has warned of a very unstable snowpack due to the combination of wind, snowfall and rain, so stay safe out there!

A dusting of snow is on the forecast today. Saturday will be sunny but there's another snowstorm coming on Monday, with around 20cm expected to fall again. The skies will remain mostly blue for the rest of the week.
