Tignes Le Lavachet

Tignes Le Lavachet is a purpose built resort at a snow sure altitude of 2100 metres. Tignes Le Lavachet has a pretty area of traditional wood and stone chalets; where our ski in/ski out Chalet Amelie is nestled, as well as some modern apartment buildings. Tignes Le Lavachet merges into neighbouring Tignes Le Lac.  

Tignes Le Lavachet is superbly positioned in the heart of the ski area, one lift and a ski away from all the other villages of L’Espace Killy. Neighbouring Val D’Isere is just 2 lifts and a ski away. From the doorstep of Chalet Amelie, a short ski down an easy slope takes you to a choice of two fast 6 person chairlifts: the ‘Paquis’ chairlift links you with either Tignes Le Lac, Tignes Val Claret (or Val D’Isere via one more lift); the ‘Chaudannes’ chairlift gives access to Tignes Le Lac via a red or a blue slope or to Tignes Les Brevieres, via a red or blue slope. At the end of your day, you can ski across to Chalet Amelie from the beginner slope which runs past the chalet. The lift serving the beginner slope is located a few yards from Chalet Amelie, making this chalet a superb choice for beginners as well as all other standards.
