Espace Killy

The Espace Killy is a ski area in the Tarentaise Valley, Savoie in the French Alps, named after the skier Jean-Claude Killy. It covers the resorts of Val d'Isère and Tignes

In Espace Killy there are 300 km of pistes


The Espace Killy is a French ski resorts coupling of Val d'Isère and Tignes Savoie. Located in the Massif de la Vanoise, Haute Tarentaise Valley and named the skier Jean-Claude Killy, it extends from the glacier Pisaillas above the Col de l'Iseran in Val d'Isere the Grande Motte above Val Claret Tignes.


Tignes (French pronunciation: ​[tiɲ]) is a commune in the Tarentaise Valley, Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It is located in the Savoie region with good transport links in and out of Lyon, Geneva and Chambery.

It is best known as a ski resort. Together with nearby Val d'Isère, it forms the "Espace Killy" ski area. Tignes was the freestyle skiing venue for the 1992 Winter Olympics and co-host city for the 1992 Winter Paralympics.

Ski resort ski and summer, the glacier grande motte are generally open all year. The ski area is grouped with that of Val d'Isere to form the Espace Killy.

Off track existed on the Grande Motte glacier, as the glacier tongue or leaving the cable car to turn right and descend towards the chairlift The Leisse, but they gradually disappeared given the retreat of the glacier. Entire area of ​​the glacier outside of the two tracks that go down today dug huge trenches, as a cultivated field: the snow is here accumulated by snowcats to preserve summer that remains of the glacier.

Mountain sports

After the loss of the old village it was decided to develop a ski resort at the higher lake (Le Lac). This was surrounded by a bowl that is ideal for skiing and is headed by the Grand Motte glacier. The resort was developed largely during the 1960s and the building style reflects what was regarded as good building design at that time. In recent years the town has worked to improve the look of the new villages with some success.

The lifts of Tignes have been managed since 1967 by the company STGM (The Société des Téléphériques de la Grande Motte). Many lifts are fast 6 or 8 person chairlifts and there are 113 snow cannons which produce 450,000 m2 of artificial snow each year. The ski area is linked with the resort of Val-d'Isère and the entire ski area is called Espace Killy. At 4.2 km, Tignes boasts the 4th longest funicular in the world.[citation needed] Tignes reaches a height of 3030 m making it the perfect choice for snow sure skiing.


Before the Second World War , the village of Tignes, located in the Haute Tarentaise was virtually unknown. Located inside of a bowl , and enjoying good sunny conditions , it was one of the few places to allow pastoral farming mountain .

Since 1933 the administration contemplated the construction of a dam at the top of the grooves Boisses , but not Tignards knew this in 1941 . Construction began in 1946 and the village was finally drowned in 1952 when the dam Chevril finished full of water. After removal of the cemetery , dynamiting homes and expulsion of people from refractory CRS .

Since 1956 began , near the natural lake of Tignes, at 2100 meters, the construction of the station for winter sports .

In 1968 , the station developed on the site of Val Claret ( 2150 m ), with mainly high-rise buildings due to limited space. Adopting a philosophy that wanted innovative for its time , consisting of interpenetrating space and ski resort , Val Claret was phased redevelopment . Building homes in upmarket MGM closer chalet style mountain should gradually change the face .

Tracks have hosted events in 1992 Winter Olympics : Freestyle Skiing ( moguls with the victory of the French ballet Edgar Grospiron and how this was the only appearance in the Olympics ) on the stage of Lognan .

Val d'Isère

Val d'Isère is a commune of the Tarentaise Valley, in the Savoie department (Rhône-Alpes region) in southeastern France. It lies 5 km (3 mi) from the border with Italy. It is on the border of the Vanoise National Park created in 1963. During the 1992 Winter Olympics, the Face de Bellevarde was the site of the men's downhill race. Other alpine skiing events held during those games included men's giant slalom and alpine combined. Val d'Isère regularly hosts World Cup alpine events, usually for the men in early December, and hosted the World Championships in 2009. It is located in the Savoie région with good transport links in and out of Lyon, Geneva and Chambery. The ski area of Val d'Isère and Tignes forms the Espace Killy, named after the triple olympic champion Jean-Claude Killy who grew up in Val d'Isère.

The western and central areas of Val d'Isère are most recognizable by their "chalet" architecture, while in the eastern part of the town high-rise architecture dominates the landscape. Along with nearby Tignes the area forms part of the "l'Espace Killy", the self-titled "Most Beautiful Ski Area in the World".[citation needed]

The Pissaillas Glacier offers summer skiing, as well as the usual winter fare. Snow cannon are placed on certain slopes to accommodate heavy skiing. The ski slopes themselves are equipped with a high-volume gondola, able to transport standing skiers, the funicular Funival from La Daille via a tunnel to the top of Bellevarde, traditional chair lifts—some with windshields and many detachable, button/disc-pulls and tow-ropes. There are both groomed slopes and backcountry (off-piste) skiing. The slopes' difficulty levels are particularly high. However, as in Tignes there are wide, easily-navigable pistes for those of the beginner-intermediate level as well. Its extensive off-piste facilities include guides for safety reasons; reviews are generally favourable.

Tignes possesses more of the same, with a funicular shuttling skiers up through one of the mountains to the Grande Motte glacier. A free shuttle bus runs between the villages in the valley, providing free transport throughout the towns of Val d'Isère and La Daille.


Human habitation of the valley dates back to before Roman times. The town received parish rights in 1637 and the parish church, which is still a landmark in the town centre, was built in 1664.

Skiing in Val d'Isère has its roots in the 1930s when a drag lift was built on the slopes of the Solaise. This was followed by an aerial tramway (cable car).


The city of Val d'Isère is connected to the rest of the country by a single main road: the RD902. It passes southeast of the village Iseran Pass to join Bonneval-sur-Arc located in the Maurienne valley. The main road from Fornet to the Col de l'Iseran and Bonneval sur Arc is closed during the winter (usually from early November to early June depending on snow conditions).
