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.

Everyone that we dealt with at Tignes Spirit was friendly, helpful and professional. The snowboarding gear we hired was of excellent quality. We particularly appreciated the drop off and pick up service, which was brilliant. When I had a broken toe strap, it was no bother at all to have it changed. Without doubt, this was the best service we... More

This is my third review of Tignes Spirit and they're still the best hire company I've used. After the inevitable Chambery delay they came over to us in Val D'Isere in the morning and got everyone ready in time. They bring loads of kit to make sure you get the best fit and will return to the shop if anything... More

We booked our equipment with Tignes Spirit on the back of other people's review and weren't disappointed. They collected us and took us to the shop when arrived. Kitted us out and dropped us back at our chalet. Also, mid holiday we had some uncomfortable books and a broken pole and on both occasions they found a way to collect... More

Tignes spirit is rad. All the staff are reallly friendly and helpful, plus very knowledgeable. My girlfriend needed a snowboard setup and they did a perfect job and even had clothing for her to borrow as she didn't have any. Awesome range of clothing and accessories at great prices and a great atmosphere in the store. What a trendy crew.... More

We really appreciated that TS remained open till late at night to make sure we were all fully kitted out to be on the slopes first thing in the morning. Service, flexibility, friendliness, knowledge and quality of skis were impeccable as always.

Best ski hire kit we have ever had, and the boots were so comfortable! But the best bit about this business is that they'll collect you from your apartment to take you to their shop, then return you with your kit back to the apartment. And at the end of your holiday? They'll come and collect the kit from you,... More
