Tignes Spirit is the only independent, British-owned ski and snowboard shop...

Tignes Spirit is the only independent, British-owned ski and snowboard shop in the Espace Killy. Based in Tignes, we stock independent brands of hardware and apparel, including Salomon, Head, Elan, Movement, Majesty, Dalbello, Nike, Burton, Endeavor, Signal, Airblaster, Ashbury, Stance, Butta, Dragon Alliance and many others.

Our ski and snowboard rental service is the best in Tignes, offering a free delivery and collection service which saves you the time and hassle you would usually experience trekking to the rental shop. The quality of products and the low prices we offer, by far outshine all other rental shops, whilst our English and French speaking technicians have been hand-picked for their extensive technical knowledge and amazing customer service skills. Our entire crew live for the snow and were the best UK shop team at the British Championships in 2013 and 2014, winning the most medals across the board!

The latest in touring skis, split-boards, snow shoes and cross-country equipment are all available for rent and purchase at Tignes Spirit. We offer daily rates so that you can rent different equipment for each day of your holiday... if you want to! We have the latest in children's ski and snowboard equipment, stocking skis as small as 70cm, along with 70cm snowboards used for the Burton Riglet programme. (All children receive a free helmet as part of their package.)

Tignes Spirit is the only rental service to offer outerwear and protective clothing hire to chalets and apartments all over the Espace Killy area. Based in le lavachet, our shop doubled in size in early 2014, so we are now able to give a quality service to even more people at any given time! Our opening hours are 7am until very late, ensuring that all clients are catered for. You need not worry if you are delayed way beyond the closing time of most rental shops and need to be kitted out before the panic of ski school start times the next day. We will ensure that you and your entire party are kitted out and can enjoy maximum slope time.

Our workshop is also based in Tignes le lavachet, just down the steps from our main shop. As well as servicing our large rental fleet, we provide repairs and servicing to anyone who wishes to give their plank(s) some tender loving care! Skis and snowboards previously thought to be damaged beyond repair, have been brought back to life by our well-trained and highly experienced technicians for amazingly competitive prices.

Tignes Spirit is the go-to shop for all visitors to Tignes. With our great links and relationships with other businesses throughout the Espace Killy, we can organise holiday accommodation and transfers in all areas of Tignes and Val d'Isere, as well as an easy and affordable, quality equipment rental service.

This team will deliver your preordered kit to your chalet. They arrive with a selection of boots in your size. They struggled with my feet and I had to go into the shop the next day, but they picked me up from the slopes when I called and then kept the boots rolling out until I found a pair that... More

We initially booked through our chalet to use Tignes Spirit, and then I found out they were based in Le Lac while we were in Brevieres. I would never have booked them knowing this! However their customer service turned out to be the best ever. They rang me several times as we were driving through France to work out our... More

We ordered 2 sets of silver package with delivery. Everything was so old and unattractive that it was much spoiled from skiing. We had fully pre-paid order, and we did not expect such poor quality.

We were a party of 28 and they stayed open late on Sunday evening for us all to get kitted out the night before our first day skiing.

We booked ski hire through Tignes Spirit even though we were staying in Val d'Isere as the Ski company we used (Ski Bonjour) have a deal with them. They were prompt and good value for money and even a need to switch gear during the week was no bother. Would recommend them for sure. If you want a no hassle... More
